What is the Oral Exam?

All students graduating from an ACTP program are required by the ICF to pass an oral exam as part of their Final Performance Evaluation.  It must be a 30 minute session, assessed against ICF competencies, graded by either a PCC or MCC and the student must demonstrate coaching at a PCC level, as assessed against the ICF's PCC markers (refer to learnsite for resources). Your Mentor Coaching and previous Observed coaching will prepare you for this assessment. 


Assessed as competent
If your coaching demonstrates the required PCC markers, you will continue on towards graduation. 


Assessed as not competent
If your coaching does not demonstrate the required PCC markers you will be contacted by your assessor and offered further coach development. You then have one of two choices

  1. Attend additional 1-1 Mentor Coaching classes and then re-submit your oral assessment.  You have 3 months to resubmit.  
    $100 USD fee applies

  2. Attend a one on one session with an ICA Assessor, who will provide direction, feedback and development specifically for the areas assessed as 'not competent' in the exam.  You can then join as many mentor classes as you feel you need, and resubmit your oral exam for re assessment.
