Coach certification: it’s what we do; it’s why we’re here.
IAC certification is based on an අවබෝධය සහ පෙලපාලි of coaching mastery through a written, online exam and recorded coaching sessions.
The IAC recognizes that many professionals from various industries transition into coaching or use a coaching approach in their businesses or practices. Many uses of coaching may not necessitate that coaches attend specific training institutes or log certain numbers of coaching hours. It does not mean to imply, however, that specific and distinct skills are not required. In whatever profession you might be incorporating coaching approaches, an understanding of how coaching is unique in its application is crucial.
This month, we announce the roll-out of the IAC Coaching Masteries E-Book which is part of your IAC membership. A global team of coaches spent over two years defining and refining these universal standards on which the IAC’s certification will be based. Print these out and get to know them intimately!
For Members: THE IAC COACHING MASTERIES E-BOOK (Log-in to your member page to receive your free copy)
For Non-Members: THE IAC COACHING MASTERIES E-BOOK ($ 27.00)
The certifying examiners are also creating a document called the Observer’s Guide. For those coaches in training who record and listen to their coaching sessions, or are studying with other coaches, this guide will help determine if you are masterfully integrating coaching skills. Look for the link to this “hot off the presses” document in next month’s Voice.
Speaking of the IAC Coaching Masteries, the online exam is slated to be complete by late October. By January 1, 2008, we will be certifying exclusively under the Masteries. If you would like to be scored using the Proficiencies, you have only until Dec. 31 2007.
