earned with clients generating net income. A maximum of 10%, not to exceed 50
hours, pro-bono coaching will be counted.

company in which they are coaching internally, the 500 hour

supervisory responsibility. Coaching hours can be calculated as: number of
clients over a period of time, multiplied by actual time coached for each, to

business and how many clients you have coached total, during that time. If the
form of your coaching is with teams/groups, then note the amount of groups and
number of participants in each group you have actually worked with and the
actual number of hours coached (count the time coached the same as with an
individual). [Note: Time being coached or participation in coach training
classes, does not count toward the time that you coached, nor does the
delivery of training programs.]

Interview/Examination conducted by the Certification Review
Committee. Focus will be on Coaching competencies, tools, skills,
communications, distinctions and coached/coaching experience. The oral review
