Not necessarily. If you have time yourself, you may transcribe it. This can also offer a valuable development opportunity through the process of reviewing and transcribing your own work. However, it must be verbatim, show Speaker 1 and Speaker 2 and the time that each speaker changes.
The International Coaching Federation (ICF) requires a recording of a complete coaching session of between 20-60 minutes.
When working with Mentor Coaches at Coach Advancement, you will be asked to share two recordings of your coaching work of between 30-40 mins. maximum in length (this is of a complete piece of coaching work each time).
The International Coaching Federation (ICF) requires 10 hours of Mentor Coaching to be completed in order to apply for your ACC/PCC or MCC credential. At least 3 of the hours must be individual mentoring (1-1). The 10 hours must span at least a 3-month period.
Mentor Coaches working with you for credentialing may have different approaches. However, the key focus is that the mentoring is specifically on how a coach evidences the ICF Core Competencies. The approach may differ also if you are having only individual sessions or a mix of group and individual. The mentor will provide feedback against the competencies and will help you gauge when you are ready to apply for your credential. At Coach Advancement Limited, our mentors always work towards the PCC competency level regardless of whether you are aiming for your ACC or PCC credential.
Over the course of 10 hours and over a minimum of a 3-month period, the mentor coach will undertake a complete review of the ICF Core Competency model with you. They will also listen to your coaching and give specific feedback on how you are evidencing those competencies and will offer a professional opinion as to your level of expertise against the ACC and PCC requirements.
