Mentor Coach Training Information for ACC and PCC Applicants



Coach mentoring is coaching for those who already have basic training as coaches and who want to improve their skills so they can apply for credentialing through the International Coach Federation (ICF) or just improve their coaching skills. Ten hours of mentoring is required by the ICF for all Portfolio or ACSTH applicants.


Crossroads provide mentor coaching for those applying for the ACC or PCC credential.  Both group mentor trainings and individual trainings take place over three months (as required by the ICF).


Benefits of mentoring include:


  • A deep understanding the 11 ICF core competencies
  • Increased confidence in your coaching skills
  • Appreciation of your own signature coaching style
  • Written and verbal feedback on your coaching skills
  • Greater awareness of your coaching strengths and stretches
  • Support in applying for ICF credentials


Group Mentor Coaching classes provide the required mentoring hours and include three private (one-to-one) hours. We are now enrolling for the next group mentoring class. For more information about our next class, click here to send an email.


Individual mentoring is also available for ACC or PCC applicants.  For more information about getting private mentoring click here.

When I considered Group Mentor Coaching I was near the end of my year- long coach training and unsure whether I could handle another commitment.  But I made the time and have no regrets.  Group mentor training allowed me to overcome the self-consciousness that plagued me at times during the coach training.  By immersing myself in the core competencies I was able to build a solid foundation from which to launch myself.  I learned how the core competencies truly shape the coaching session (and relationships), giving it form, direction, and a platform from which to measure progress.


Alida's mentoring and feedback was priceless.  I also enjoyed the opportunity to work with other coaches with various levels of experience. I learned a great deal from all of them. Whether or not I was pursuing credentialing through the ICF I would recommend this training.  By solidifying the core competencies, it complements every aspect of the Crossroads Recovery Coaching training.  My confidence level soared as a result of this training.

"I think coaches need some time to practice what you’ve learned, so I recommend taking the Mentor Coaching training following some coaching experience.  From the Group Mentoring class I’ve learned how to use the ICF core competencies in a natural and effective way. I really appreciated my one to one sessions with Alida Schuyler. She encouraged me to take risks and go deeper with my clients, and to go for my PCC! I also enjoyed my classmates and hanging out with other coaches. It’s a great program!  And a very comfortable environment to learn in.  I've already referred the school and this program to someone today!
