10 Hours of Mentor Coaching For ICF Renewal

Mentor coaching is a mandatory part of your coach certification journey as the International Coach Federation (ICF) requires coaches to complete 10 hours of mentor coaching. Coach Transformation Academy has designed mentor coaching in compliance with the ICF’s definition and the guideline of mentor coaching. ICF coach certification renewal requires coaches to complete a minimum of 10 hours of mentor coaching, out of which 7 hours should be group mentor coaching and 3 hours should be individual (one-to-one) mentor coaching.

What is mentor coaching?

Mentor coaching is a process where you are coached on your coaching skills in preparation for the ICF certification as a certified coach. It follows a different approach than coaching on work goals, personal elements, life balance, or other topics unrelated to the development of your coaching skill. 

The ICF defines Mentor Coaching as providing professional assistance in achieving and demonstrating the levels of coaching competency demanded by the desired credential level sought by a coach‐applicant (mentee). Furthermore, Mentor Coaching means an applicant (mentee) being coached on their coaching skills rather than coaching on practice building, life balance, or other topics unrelated to the development of an applicant’s coaching skill.

Mentor Coaching Program Overview

You will have an experiential experience through the collaborative environment while also experiencing a range of coaching styles. The cohorts are made up of no more than 7 participants. This allows for everyone to fully engage with the material and one another. This aligns with the ICF requirement of 10 hours of live mentor coaching; the full mentoring program provides you with 7 hours of group mentoring and 3 hours of 1:1 sessions. 

  • Each participant receives 7 group sessions, each 60-min (7 hrs total), and three individual sessions, each 60-min (3 hrs total) over a 3.5-month period.
  • Group sessions include peer coaching with fishbowl observation, discussions exploring the ICF Core Competencies, and ICF Ethics. These sessions will also help you prepare for your CKA exam. All group sessions must be attended live, and participation required.
  • Individual sessions are customized to address the needs of the mentee such as focusing on reviewing and discussing a pre-recorded coaching session the mentee has had with an existing client or going deeper into ICF ethics and core competencies.
