Inside the IAC Licensing Committee

by Charlie Boyer

The IAC Licensing Committee is truly international. Chaired by Pepe Del Rio of Mexico City, committee members are Deb Chisholm from Vermont and Charlie Boyer from Colorado. We meet monthly via conference call. Coordinating calls among three time zones is a challenge, but our calls are spirited and packed with great discussions. Our main responsibilities are to monitor licensure standards, and to review and approve applications from individuals and coaching schools for IAC licensure to use the IAC Coaching Masteries™.

Currently, there are 37 active Licensees from 18 different countries. To ensure that all Licensees demonstrate an appropriate level of proficiency with the IAC Coaching Masteries™, the IAC Board of Governors has approved the following change in licensure requirements:

By January 1, 2015, every individual, school or organization licensed to use the IAC Coaching Masteries™ in its curriculum must have on its staff at least one coach who is certified in the IAC Coaching Masteries™. In order to fulfill this requirement, the coach (or coaches) who teach the IAC Coaching Masteries™ must, as a minimum, have earned the IAC Masteries Practitioner (MP) designation. This signifies that the holder of the MP designation is a current IAC member, has passed the IAC written exam, and has a Learning Agreement approved by an IAC Certifier.

New applicants for IAC Licensure may be allowed a grace period to complete this Masteries Practitioner requirement. However, ALL Licensees must fulfill the MP requirement by January 1, 2015.
