Add-on Level 1 Assessment

(3 ICF Level 1 & 2 training hours) Register >> 

The Add-on Level 1 Assessment is for those who completed 60+ training hours and 10 mentor coaching hours with us after January 1, 2018. For those who took Coaching Mastery Foundations and Coaching Mastery Advantage you don't need the assessment again.

You will learn a process for how to continually develop yourself through self-reflection. This reflection process can be applied to any area you want to improve.

You will apply the reflection process to a recording of one of your coaching sessions. This course prepares you with all the information you need to create a client coaching recording that reflects your true coaching abilities. When you are ready, you'll send us that recording and we'll assess it based on the ICF's Core Competencies. 

To receive a Level 1 Certificate, your client coaching session must demonstrate the ICF Core Competencies at a passing level. Your coaching training with us prepared you to coach at this level, and so will this course.

While we expect that you will successfully achieve a passing score the first time, there's a retake process to submit another recording should you need to do so. 

The course is a self-study program, rather than live scheduled classes to give you the flexibility to work through the information at your own pace. 

After passing the performance evaluation and meeting the other Level 1 requirements, which are completing 60 hours of training and 10 mentor coaching hours with us, you will receive an ICF Level 1 Certificate. Once you have 100 client coaching hours, you may go on to apply with the ICF for an ACC using the faster, easier, and less expensive ACC Level 1 application path.

What Participants are Saying...

"I was pleasantly surprised how quickly and efficiently the whole process worked. From the time I purchased the Add-on Level 1 Assessment to receiving my ACC was only 8 weeks. The team at CRM were helpful, supportive and encouraging throughout. Highly recommend!" —Kelly Kannwischer, Founder OptUp Coaching

"The Add-on Level 1 Performance Evaluation wasn't half as scary as I thought it would be. The self-study part of the course prepared me to confidently coach on the recording." —Future Participant
