Those wishing to renew an ACC credential are also required to complete an additional 10 hours of mentor coaching above those required for initial credential.
A minimum of 3 of the 10 mentoring hours must be one-on-one coaching with the mentor. Group coaching may count for a maximum of 7 hours toward the mentoring requirement. The group being mentored may not consist of more than 10 participants”
Further the ICF states that “All ACC, PCC and MCC Credential renewal applicants need a total of 40 hours of Continuing Coach Education (CCE) that have been completed in the three years since the initial award of the credential or since the last renewal.
