Types of Mentors
UMCARES specifies three types of mentors. These are just labels; the mentor type does not affect the security or access rights of the mentor.
- Home Mentor: responsible for mentoring a candidate through the candidacy process
- Group Mentor: used in a candidacy summit or a group psychological assessment proctoring situation. This mentor leads the group process but may or may not work individually with the candidate.
- Courtesy Mentor: used for a variety of situations, including proctoring for the candidate’s psychological assessment, a mentor assigned to work with a candidate if the candidate will be out of their annual conference for an extended period, etc.
