What People are Saying…

I found the group format to be engaging and a great opportunity to meet fellow coaches. Julie’s style is relaxed and she made the group something I looked forward to.

My key take aways are the tailored feedback on my coaching, ideas for improvement, encouragement and a couple of practical tools to apply in my practice. A wonderful experience overall!

ICF ACC Renewal

The ICF have high expectations of their ACC credentialed membership. The ICF knows the high level of value that ACC coaches create in the world and a major aspect of maintaining that high level of value is the credential renewal process.

ICF credentials must be renewed every three years to remain current and the renewal can be submitted up to 10 months before its expiration date.

To renew your Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential, you require an additional 10 hours of mentor coaching since the initial award of your credential.

ACC renewal requires:

  • 40 hours of CCE
  • 10 Hours of Mentoring

  • 7 Hours Group Mentoring

  • 3 Hours 1:1 mentoring

Group mentor coaching

During each group session, we will focus on one or two ICF Core Competencies. We will discuss what each competency means and its significance for coaching, and share how it has informed our own coaching practise or style.

The second half of each session will involve coaching, giving everyone a chance to take turns being the coach and coachee over the course of the series. Peers and the Mentor Coach will both provide feedback.

Individual mentor coaching (1:1)

To fulfill the ICF’s requirement for individual mentor coaching, you will be provided with three hours of one-on-one mentor coaching sessions with our experienced Mentor Coach and you will coach and be coached followed by discussion of core competency coaching.
