The Coaching Masteries ® Licensing
The IAC® offers two licensing options for coaching schools who wish to incorporate The Coaching Masteries® into their commercial mentoring or training programs in order to assist their clients or students in becoming IAC® certified.
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 Coaching Masteries ® and earns the IAC-Certified Coach™ or IAC-MC™ (IAC-Master Coach™) designation. A IAC-Masteries Practitioner™, by contrast, is someone working to learn and embody The Coaching Masteries ®.

Revised IAC® 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.
- Every licensee is accountable to its students for the content of the licensee’s training program. The IAC® will not oversee the curriculum, the instruction or the use of the IAC Coaching Masteries® in licensee training programs.
- IAC® will publish on its website the name of the licensee, school or program, the name of the accountable coach or the curriculum, the level of IAC Certification™ he/she holds Certified Masteries Coach and a link to the licensee organization’s website.
Under the commercial license agreement, the Licensee may include the IAC Coaching Masteries®, unaltered and with copyright notice, as part of a product and/or service (e.g., coach training program, training audio or video product, virtual study group, etc.).
