MCP Overview:

Mentor CertificationStarting Dates: Annually in March or October

The Mentor Certification Program offered by WOVI is a unique credential and training program.   Sessions begin in either March or October, consist of several meetings, and are open to anyone.  Training is done in the classroom, via webinars, and through actual application of principles learned.

The Mentor Certification Program is a 6 month program. The first session is in the classroom in the Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas area.  The next sessions are webinars making it convenient for all participants from any location.  The final session and exam are back in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and coincide with the opening class of the next session.

Why Become a Certified Mentor?

In the corporate world, mentoring and mentoring programs are increasing exponentially. Trained mentors ensure appropriate knowledge transfer and provide critical support to companies and to their employees.

Increased knowledge and expertise, and an additional credential for coaches and therapists that sets you apart from your colleagues. Coaching is a billion dollar industry and practitioners are looking for additional programs and education that help them stand out among the competition. Coaches who also mentor will be in greater demand.

The Mentor Certification program provides you with a unique credential. Participation in this program and earning the Certified Mentor designation puts you on the cutting edge.

It’s more than the certification, it’s the knowledge of mentoring and skill sets you acquire. It’s also the opportunity to practice these new skills in an encouraging and growth environment.

How is the program structured?

The Mentor Certification program runs for six months and is taught through a blend of classroom instruction, assessments, case studies, practical experience, self-paced study, and webinars. Completion of the program and a passing score on the comprehensive final exam will earn you the exclusive Certified Mentor designation.

Who should participate in the program?

The Mentor Certification program is open to everyone. Although WOVI is an organization for women only, we realize that everyone benefits from mentoring and being a mentor.

What Certified Mentors say about the program

This program makes empowerment through mentoring a reality.
There is a mentor inside of everyone waiting to get out. This program let my mentor out.
It was shocking to me that I learned how to put others first and how to better understand the people I mentor as well as others.
I became a better listener and gained more than my mentee did during the experiential learning part of this program.

Benefits of the Mentor Certification Program

There have been three Mentor Certification Programs since its beginning in 2011. Here are comments from a few of those Certified Mentors:

“The Knowledge I gained will be helpful in all kinds of interpersonal situation, but especially as I mentor, coach and consult with clients.”
“The part I like best in this program is the interactive self-paced portion – applying what I’ve learned in a real-life situation.”
“Wow, I didn’t realize how unconsciously incompetent I was in the area until the certification process!”

There are numerous benefits from earning this certification both within and outside of the workplace. Consider some of them: Certified Mentors ensure valuable knowledge transfer and provide critical support to companies and to their employees. Entrepreneurs and direct sales business owners will be more successful in building their businesses. Coaches who also know how to mentor and possess this designation are in greater demand.

Consider the top five reasons you should become a certified mentor:

  • 5. A “sit up” and take notice credential for your resume or bio.
  • 4. A new, additional approach to enhance your coaching.
  • 3. You will gain skill entrepreneurs and direct sales business owners use to build their teams and bottom line.
  • 2. You will have the “how to” knowledge that will make you standout in your career.
  • 1. You will be one of the first 100 certified mentors in the world!
