Professional Bodies

Professional Bodies serve the Private Commercial Training Companies and the Coaches and Mentors by providing a verification process (accreditation/credential); a membership service; and support.

Although the IRCM Recognises a number of Professional Bodies, it recommends that each Professional Body Registers to confirm that they include the industry recognised Codes of Conduct and details of the Ombudsman Service in their own Professional Body Codes of Conduct.

This ensures that the:

  • Private Commercial Training Organisations that train the Coaches and/or Mentors to work with the Consumer, have the right level of training and work within the industry recognised Codes of Conduct and recognise the Ombudsman Service.
  • Coaches and/or Mentors who work with the Consumer, have the right level of competence and work within the industry recognised Codes of Conduct and recognise the Ombudsman Service.

The IRCM’s Professional Bodies Directory:

  • details all Professional Bodies that are Recognised by the IRCM.
  • encourages Professional Bodies to abide by a defined, consistent, and industry recognised Code of Ethics, Standards, and Core Competencies; and recognise the Ombudsman Service for their members by Registering.
  • in addition to Registering, provides an independent verification for the Professional Body through Accreditation of the Professional Bodies standards, ethics, policies and processes.
