The Certificate of Competence is awarded based on the Verification of Concept and Practice Competence. 

A competent verifier will assess the competence of the applicant against the criteria set for the certificate. The criteria are the action outcome statements in the Certificate of Competence Profile.

The basic 5-step Certificate of Competence process includes:

  1. complete a Self-Assessment ... to benchmark what you know already, and develop a plan to fill in the gaps. Think of the self-assessment as a checklist to follow - a blueprint to use. 
  2. develop a Portfolio including your "LIVE" Mentor LogBook ... to detail what you learned about mentoring (mentor and mentee, & a mentoring arrangement) from your lived experience and/or completing the online course or attending a live workshop + additional reflective-planning requests based on your LogBook entries and upcoming mentoring sessions
  3. request your Case Review Package ... to review and comment on 3 mentoring situations and prepare additional administrative documents in preparation for step 4
  4. finish the Verification Process ... to submit your Portfolio, LogBook, Case Reviews, and participate in an active conversation with a Verifier about the knowledge and skills of mentoring and serving as a mentor
  5. apply for your Certificate of Competence - Mentor ... to receive your IMC certificate with identification of your recertification date
