Several of our PCCI faculty members offer a bundled package of mentor coaching services for anyone wishing to become credentialed as a Certified Professional Life Coach (CPLC) or Certified Professional Leadership Coach (CPLC), or for those wishing to pursue ICF credentialing as an Associate or Professional Certified Coach (ACC or PCC).
This Mentor Coaching Package includes:
- Five (5) one-hour long individual mentor coaching sessions by phone with a faculty member who is certified at either the PCC or MCC level, focusing on your coaching skills and staffing cases from your private client caseload.
- Immediate feedback on your strengths and areas for continued improvement.
- A letter of recommendation you can use to apply for the CPLC designation.
- The fee for this package, regardless of the mentor coach with whom you contract, is $750.
NOTE: This is not officially a PCCI service, as PCCI does not take any portion of the $750 fee – it is paid directly to your coach through a private contract between the two of you. We post it here because we’re proud that many on our faculty offered to provide this package at a discounted rate from their normal fees to aid you in completing certification requirements.
Also note that you are NOT required to use any of PCCI’s faculty members as your mentor coach for our certification. This is only a discounted service option, made available to our students. You are free to contract a mentor coach of your own choosing, as long as they are ICF-certified at the PCC or MCC level.
We require a minimum of 5 clock hours of mentor coaching for our CPLC credential. Please be aware that the ICF currently requires 10 hours of mentor coaching for their credentials.

Cheryl Scanlan, MCC, CPCC
Cheryl began coaching in 2004 after a long battle with a difficult disease served as a Divine incubator for growing a focused love for the Lord and His church body. In 2003, her husband and best friend of 30 years, Tom, was the first to suggest life coaching as a possible vehicle of ministry to the body. Cheryl now mentors other coaches, coaches individuals from all walks of life, develops and teaches curricula and has most recently developed a children’s series. But her passion is for seeing God’s people walk in step with Him. An ardent student of God’s Word, she is a trained Precept Bible Teacher and has studied the Word inductively for over 15 years.
Cheryl has developed two curricula. One for professional development called ACT! with 60 ACSTH approved hours by ICF and one for personal development called Promised Land Living, a 6 month to 1 year process for intense development of top leaders in the church body. Both curricula are used as the primary tools for developing coaches and leaders at her church. Pastors, elders and lay leaders have all benefitted from the skills developed, honed and refined through ACT! and PLL.
