IICT operates as a self-regulated and independent membership body. The ‘IICT Approved Training Provider’ must commit to pertinent regulations within the respective jurisdictions concerning government-recognised training providers and protective titles.
Being an ‘IICT Approved Training Provider’ does not provide the status of being a government accredited trainer.
You cannot use the terms “Nationally Recognised” or “Nationally Accredited” in conjunction with the IICT name and common seal on promotional materials, both electronic and hard copy. You must only use the terms “Approved Course” and/or Approved Training Provider. For example, “Mary’s Massage is an Approved Training Provider with IICT” or “Upon completion of this course, you will be eligible to join IICT for professional membership and exclusive insurance rates”.
By law, there are specific titles which are referred to as ‘protected titles’. This means only those people who are registered, or endorsed, in a particular profession can use the titles associated with that profession. This may require the practitioner to obtain licensing and or registrations required by a regulatory authority.
As a Training Provider, you warrant to IICT as part of your approval you are aware of any licenses and/or registrations required by law in the regions whereby you are teaching your courses. You must also obtain and maintain and must ensure that every person employed or engaged by you to facilitate the provision of services/modalities holds any and all valid license(s) and/or registration(s) required by any regulatory authority within the region or territory in which you/they practice and completes as required by any regulations such course(s) of continuing professional development (CPD) as are required for the renewal and continued validity of such license(s) and registration(s).
