How our ICF Mentor Coaching Program Works:
Once you have earned your Life Coach Training Certification, either from iNLP Center or another coach training center you may enroll in our ICF Mentoring Program. After enrollment, you can begin attending either our ACC or PCC Mentoring Clinics, depending on your enrollment status.
You may also enroll if you are renewing your ACC or PCC credential.
ACC Clinic Details:
Our ACC Coach Mentoring is for those either applying for their ACC credential or renewing their ACC credential. You do not need to be enrolled in an iNLP Center coach training to enroll in our ICF Coach Mentoring.
The clinics are offered two times per week, which you can attend as you like to equal 7 clinic sessions. You are required to attend at least 7 live clinics before being assigned to your private ICF mentor coach, whom you will meet with three times, to prepare for your coaching demonstration, coach knowledge assessment, or for personal coaching. If you are renewing your credential, your private sessions can focus on other elements of coaching.
The ACC Clinic curriculum is focused on the ICF coaching competencies. The sessions will include the following content:
- ICF core competency principles and practices (1-2 per class session)
- Life coaching case scenarios for discussion and application
- Demonstration of life coaching in the class with students
- Commentary and class discussion about the coaching process and outcomes
- Self-assessment of coaching competency and feedback from an MCC mentor and other students.
- Preparation for the ICF Coach Knowledge Assessment, required for ACC credentialing.

PCC Clinic Details:

The clinics are offered two times per week, which you can attend as many times as you like. You are required to attend at least 7 live clinics and three private sessions. Once enrolled in the Master or Mental Coach Certification Track you can select the coach you would like to have private sessions with. You will meet with them two times during your life coach training and once at the end of your certification track.
The PCC Clinic curriculum is focused on blending the ICF coaching competencies, our universal coaching model, and learning how to coach from your intuition. This is a more advanced mentoring clinic, covering not just the basics of what’s covered in the ACC Clinic, but additional coaching models. Most participants will be attending the Master Coaching Sessions concurrently.
Because our PCC Clinic is part of our ACTP level training, you will not be submitting any coaching demonstrations to ICF. Because of this, you can spend your private mentoring time being coached or working on specific coaching skills with your mentor coach.
PCC Mentor Clinic Meeting Times:
Our PCC Mentor Clinic is offered each Wednesday at 10:15 pacific, or alternating Tuesdays at 3pm pacific and Thursdays at 4pm pacific. You can enroll anytime and get started.
