Certificate of Practice - Journey Mentor

Is for those who complete the requirements of the Certificate of Practice - Journey Mentor using a reciprocal and wholistic mentoring approach applicable in adult situations like the workplace, mental health support, and support of those aging.

Source of Education

There are many education providers offering mentoring courses and workshops, and books and libraries. There are persons who serve as mentors. Key word search will reveal them.

WELLth Movement (Dr. Stephen Hobbs) and TalentC (Doug Lawrence) are education providers through courses, workshops, and resources.

Of importance:
The source of your education is not relevant.
What is, is your learning-knowing-doing application
aligned with the profile checked via the IMC audit//verification system.

And to be clear, it's your comprehension and application of a reciprocal and wholistic mentoring approach that is used to enter the certificate audit/verification system.

The Certificate of Practice - Journey Mentor focuses on learning the knowledge and skills, the concepts and practices, and attitudes about serving as a journey mentor whether paid or free. Re-certification every two years.

Certification is based on submitting a written Journey Mentor Practice Portfolio we audit for relevance, authorship, and mastery, plus you attend an online verification meeting with an IMC Verifier assigned by the International Mentoring Community to dialogue about the practices of a reciprocal and wholistic mentoring approach.
