The IAC® Masteries Practitioner
Masteries Practitioner is the IAC®’s designation that addresses the evolving needs of coaches and the coaching profession. It is considered a learning designation and it demonstrates one’s commitment to practicing the 9 IAC Coaching Masteries® and integrating these high level coaching skills into their professional lives.
Although it can stand alone, having merit in its own right as a learning designation, it can also be celebrated as a stepping stone to Step 2 of coach certification where a coach has demonstrated masterful application of the 9 IAC Coaching Masteries® and earns the CMC (Certified Masteries Coach) or MMC (Master Masteries Coach) designation. A Masteries Practitioner, by contrast, is someone working to learn and embody the Masteries.
Why would a coach want this designation?
- This is a mandatory step to complete the certification process. It provides a visible designation that proves members are practicing to minimum standards.
- To publicly declare the coach’s standards for their coaching practice.
How does a coach earn the IAC® Masteries Practitioner Designation?
- Complete a Masteries Professional Development Plan.
- Achieve a passing score on Step 1 online test. (The online exam is currently unavailable. We are in the process of changing platforms to make taking the exam a much better experience for you. We should have the new exam ready for you soon.) Try the Practice Test.
