Coaching and Mentoring are exciting industries which are on the cutting-edge of professional development and change.  These are industries which are continually growing.

As a training organisation, school, college, or university, teaching coaching and/or mentoring skills you can gain your accreditation in one of the following ways:

  • To be an accredited Training Organisation where the organisation is applying for all their courses and/or workshops to be included
  • For one or more specific Coaching Courses and/or Workshops where not all the courses and/or workshops run by the training organisation are to be included
  • For one or more specific Mentoring Courses and/or Workshops where not all the courses and/or workshops run by the training organisation are to be included
  • For one or more specific Coach and Mentoring Courses and/or Workshops where not all the courses and workshops run by the training organisation are to be included
  • For a combination of Coaching Courses and/or Workshops, Mentoring Courses and/or Workshops, Coach and Mentoring Courses and/or Workshops, where not all the courses and/or workshops run by the training organisation are to be included

The IIC&M follows a strict process for accreditation which ensures that we and the accredited training organisations, courses, and workshops maintain a high standard and code of ethic.

Your prospective students can be assured of quality training with you.  Accreditation by the IIC&M is one of the most powerful unique selling points (USPs) you have for attracting new students to your training organisation, courses and/or or workshops.

Accreditation for Training Organisations

Accredited Training Organisations

To be an IIC&M Accredited Training Organisation all the courses and/or workshops run by the organisation will be included in the accreditation application.

For an organisation to become recognised an IIC&M Accredited Training Organisation, each course and/or workshop will be accredited to verify that it meets the standards set by the IIC&M for each course and/or workshop.  On successful completion of the accreditation process the training organisation, school, college, or university will be awarded an IIC&M Accredited Training Organisation status.

Each training organisation, school, college, or university agrees that it will not release any new courses and/or workshops before they have been accredited to maintain its IIC&M Accredited Training Organisation status.

The courses and/or workshops included in the Training Organisations accreditation will be specific to coaching and/or mentoring, and will not include other training courses and/or workshops that the training organisation, school, college, or university may run.

Accreditation for One or More Courses and/or Workshops

Accreditation for one or more Courses and/or Workshops

An organisation may still apply for one or more of its courses and/or workshops to be accredited without becoming an Accredited Training Organisation.

In this instance it will be the course and/or workshop that gains the accreditation and not the whole organisation.

Accreditation for Franchise(s), Master Distributor(s), Licensee(s)

The IIC&M recognises that training organisations provide their courses, short courses and/or workshops to other training organisations to market in a specific territory in a contractually binding agreement.

The training organisation and other organisation have the following ways in which they may be awarded course and/or workshop accreditation with the IIC&M:

  1. Training Organisation where the originating organisation applies for and is awarded their training organisation accreditation.
    • The training organisation takes responsibility to ensure that all members of the faculty within their own organisation and across all other training organisations are included on each Statement of Information
    • It is important to recognise that as each new training organisation is awarded a commercial agreement to train using the originating organisations training courses/workshops, that the Originating Training Organisation submits an updated Statement of Information which includes the new faculty members.
  2. Training Organisation where the originating organisation applies for and is awarded one or more courses/workshops, but does not apply for all courses and workshops to be accredited.
    • The training organisation takes responsibility to ensure that all members of the faculty within their own organisation and across all other training organisations are included on each Statement of Information
    • It is important to recognise that as each new training organisation is awarded a commercial agreement to train using the originating organisations training courses/workshops, that the Originating Training Organisation submits an updated Statement of Information which includes the new faculty members.
  3. Originating Training Organisation applies for their own accreditation (as a Training Organisation or for specific courses and workshop), and other training organisations who have been awarded a commercial agreement apply for their own accreditation (as a Training Organisation or for specific courses and workshop).
    • It is then the responsibility of each training organisation to ensure that all members of the faculty within their own organisation only are included on each Statement of Information.
    • When each new training organisation is awarded a commercial agreement to train using the originating organisations training courses/workshops, it is the decision of the new training organisation to apply for their own accreditation.
  4. Where a training organisation who has been awarded a commercial agreement to run an originating organisations training course or workshop, where the originating organisation, the originating organisation s training course or workshop is not accredited by the IIC&M; the training organisation who has been awarded the commercial agreement may still apply for training organisation or course/workshop accreditation.

Where the third option is selected, it is the responsibility of the originating Training Organisation to ensure that the other training organisations are not using the same marketing material and do not represent themselves by using the IIC&M awarded accreditation.

Where the fourth option is selected, it is the responsibility of the Training Organisation who has been awarded the commercial agreement and been awarded the accreditation to ensure that no other organisation running this or these courses/workshops represents themselves using the IIC&M awarded accreditation.
