Сandidates must first hold certification as a Professional Master Coach of ICU.

The certification process involves an interview, as well as the submission of journals and reports to demonstrate their coaching expertise.

Evaluation and certification will be conducted by a Master Trainer from ICU, ensuring a rigorous and thorough assessment process.

  1. Successful completion of the Supervisor Practical Introduction Course, which provides a foundation in the principles and practices of coaching supervision.

This hands-on experience offers valuable insights into effective supervisory techniques and practices, while also receiving supervision on their own supervisory work from a professional supervisor.
