What Is the Purpose of Mentoring?

Mentoring provides an emerging Life Coach with professional oversight in achieving and demonstrating the required level of competency and professional excellence needed for each ICCI Core Credential or Specialization in a Model or Niche. Mentoring typically takes place over an extended period of time under the direction of the Mentor and in conjunction with field experience hours that are being obtained. This allows for ongoing feedback, reflection, skill development, and confidence in working with clients from a Christian and biblical framework.

What Does the Mentoring Process Entail?

After completion of all required education/training hours, each person seeking a Core Life Coaching Credential or a Specialization in a Coaching Model or Niche should directly contact an approved ICCI Mentor to continue their certification process. Once contact with a Mentor is established, a schedule and supervision/mentoring plan will be mutually agreed upon. Mentoring must take place either in face-to-face sessions or via a live interactive platform (e.g., Zoom, etc.). At the conclusion of all required mentoring sessions, the Mentor will complete a Mentor Evaluation/Reference Form, which must be submitted with the Credential Application.

What is the Cost of Mentoring Sessions?

All Mentors and their representative organizations have agreed to keep the cost of their mentoring fees to $100 – $200 per session. Session fees are reimbursed directly to the Mentor or their organization by the person/Applicant pursuing an ICCI Credential or Specialization.
