What is IBCT

Certification for Trainers and Talent Development Professionals?

IBCT Certification is a long-term career commitment that demonstrates your dedication, credibility and your level of mastering the training and HRD competencies to your bosses, clients, staff members and professional peers across the globe. IBCT Certification provides clear evidence of the investment you have made in your Training and Talent Development career and represents a concrete milestone in the profession.

To become an IBCT certified Trainer, you must meet strict international standards, professional practice, and educational requirements before earning our certificates and licenses of practice.

To keep your certification status valid, you must stay current in the Training and Talent Development profession and recertify every three years.

IBCT prepares, educates, qualifies, and certifies candidates via a multi-level, state-of-the-industry Train-The-Trainer program. Our world-class program comprises three subsequent levels. These levels represent the extent to which graduates are mastering the Training and Talent Development competencies. Certification levels are Associate Trainer (AT), Certified Professional Trainer (CPT) and Certified Trainer and Human Resources Development Consultant (CT/HRDC). You display your certification status and level by putting the credential after your name.
