UPDATE (October 2014): The IAAC has been formally dissolved as an organization. For information on ADHD Coach Certification, click here.

Mentor Coaching is required for the SCAC Path 2 Credential.

What does that entail and who should I contact for my mentoring?

The focus of Mentor Coaching is to increase the individual’s coaching skills based on upholding IAAC Core Competencies and Code of Ethics, with a clear knowledge and understanding of the difference between coaching/mentoring/therapy/teaching and consulting.  This should assist the individual’s ability to confidently complete the live oral assessment exam required of this credential.

A qualified Mentor Coach will have attained a minimum of one of the following:

  • IAAC, SCAC or CAC Credential with sixty hours of general coach training; or
  • An advanced credential (e.g. PCC or MCC) or certification from a general coaching association or organization such as ICF, IAC, etc.

Arrangements for finding or securing a Mentor Coach will be between the two (2) parties without any involvement from the IAAC.

We welcome questions and/or comments about credentialing.  Look for more information about becoming an IAAC AD/HD Credentialed Coach, or by contacting Linda Taylor, the IAAC Credentialing Commissioner.
