Anybody can be a mentor. We believe it is a stage in life. When you acquire valuable skills and experience, people look up to you and want to learn from you.

There is no minimum qualification or criteria to become a mentor. However, we have a screening process through which we identify the potential of mentors.

For hands-on live training you need not to create any content. These training are projects driven and hardly require you to create content. In case content is required to cover theoretical concepts, you are free to use content available online to support your training such as blogs, videos etc. We don't restrict you to do that. Ideally it does not require you to create any content.

If you record your training and have recorded videos with you. You can leverage those videos further to host a video based training

In case you are more like a content creator, you can host your videos to monetize them.

You can still use the platform and its features as any other user without any restriction except you would not be able to host training/courses.

Your profile can be converted to normal user (mentee) profile.

Absolutely not. Hosting a training is mentor's choice. He/she can do it based on his/her time availability. Once your account is published on platform, feel free to plan training accordingly. We help you to host a couple of training initially. Click here to learn how to plan & host training

All information you have added to your profile, mentoring and training you have hosted, feedback etc. except your contact details.

It brings following benefits to you.

  • Let people know the ways you can help
  • Attract right auidence, interact with them and understand their needs
  • Cut the noise and do things that really matter and produce results
  • Build your communities and brand
  • Monetize your time and efforts
  • Stay active and relevant in community

If you are a first-time mentor, this is a critical step. You are most likely unaware of the needs of your mentees. This makes it difficult to plan a training. This strategy is implemented by expert mentors and produces excellent results.

Strategy 1: For a new mentor

  • Start with a small one session webinar or masterclass. Keep it free to attract masses.
  • The topic of the webinar/masterclass should be worth their time and should focus on providing value and learning.
  • Get feedback from the mentees and ask what topics they want you to cover in the next webinar/masterclass.
  • Once you understand the requirements well plan a training around requirements and target your mentees.

Strategy 2: For an experienced mentor

  • Host a training. Click here to know how to host a training.
  • Create a free webinar/masterclass using the module abstracts from the above training.
  • Attract a large number of people to the free webinar/masterclass and provide them value from module abstracts knowledge.
  • At the conclusion of the webinar, assist participants in understanding the full fledged training plan (all details) that you have already hosted, including who is eligible to attend, the advantages they will receive, how it will improve their life, etc.
  • Give the attendees the link of training so they may subscribe to it.
  • Give them instructions on what to do next after enrolling in your training. If they have any tasks to complete, things to prepare, etc.

Record your webinar/masterclass and upload the recording on MentorIF, Youtube or other social media channels.

Consider following steps while planning for training.

  • Look back to your professional/personal experience and pick some projects that you would like to choose to train people.
  • You may end up having multiple projects with varied size (small, medium, large) and complexity. Let's take one project for simplicity.
  • Identify all the technologies, libraries and tools used to develop the projects. Obviously you will prefer technologies you are most experienced in and suited to the project.
  • Now to help individuals develop this project, think if they should have the knowledge of programming languages and technologies used in the project. If you want people to subscribe to your training without any knowledge of these technologies, then you would need to help people learn the basics of technologies used. You may need to spend sometime to bring everyone on the same level of understanding so that you can start training on the projects. Consider this time as well in your training to enable individuals build and master basic skills.
  • Take into consideration, how much time a learner should take to build the basic skills on the technologies used.
  • You may take few hours to complete the project. But how much time a learner should take to complete the project is more important. Projects enable learners to solve problems using their skills and gain practical industrial/domain knowledge.
  • Spend time on details and go in depth with your learners.
  • To break a project into small-2 tasks is easy. If you ever worked on a task management system e.g. Jira etc. then breaking a project into stories, tasks and subtasks is quite easy.
  • In case you would like to add multiple small projects having varied complexity, size and scope under one training, feel free to consider the above tips.
  • Generally to solidify the learning, having multiple projects of same size makes sense. In one project you may have to assist a lot, but other projects allow learners to use their learning and practice themselves with less of your assistance.
  • Decide what should be the right time to conduct training sessions. For working professionals after working hours or weekends training sessions make more sense.
  • Next, decide the frequency of training sessions either daily, alternate days, some specific days of week or weekends etc. Keep the consistency in mind. Too much gap in two consecutive training sessions is not good.
  • Frequency decided above would help you to reach you to the end date of your training
  • Also, you would be able to understand how much time your training would take to complete.
  • You are good to go now.

In case you find it difficult to perform the above exercise by yourself, don’t worry. Our team helps all mentors to plan and host trainings initially. Once you are self sufficient then you can do it by yourself.

Still have some queries? Talk to our team at or our call/whatsapp number +919560211549. We will help you plan and schedule your training to get you started.

Generally training is conducted on three kinds of projects: beginner, intermediate and advanced.

Beginner projects are more suitable for people learning technology for the first time. Either they are in the early stage of their learning/career or aspire to change their career from non technical to technical field.

People have basic knowledge of technology, intermediate projects are more suitable for these people. Generally these people know the technical nuances, syntax and have built small programs to practice their basic skills. They look to enhance their skills by developing some projects under the guidance of experienced mentors.

Advanced projects are suitable for experienced people or one who have crossed the intermediate stage. They understand the technology well but never got a chance to practice some serious projects on that technology.
