Quality Assurance and Ethical CommitteeComplaints against IBCT members/trainers who allegedly breach the IBCT Code of Conduct and Ethics may be received from clients, participants, and colleagues, from the public or other IBCT members, or from the QAEC. The IBCT Code of Conduct complaints procedure is an alternative dispute resolution system for managing professional conduct and professional ethics of IBCT members and acts as a professional self-regulating body.

Credentialing and Certification Committee
The credentialing and certification committee is responsible for evaluating the exams, credentials, and attitudes of participants who apply to be IBCT certified trainers. It also has the final say to certify/not to certify applicants, based on their performance and examination results. The committee is compiled out of academics, training experts and delegates from the private and public sectors. The Board assigns a local certification committee for every TTT run. Local committees report to the central one. Final decisions are always made by the central committee.
