Thank you for your interest in joining the IICT community as a Training Provider. Training Provider status is ideal for those teaching practitioner level courses.

Please email to submit your expression of interest and we’ll be in touch with the next steps.

Please be sure to read our FAQ section below for commonly ask questions. 

If you’re an existing Training Provider and need to apply for a new modality please email

Stay tuned! Our online application is launching soon.



Who can apply to become a Training Provider?

Training Provider membership is intended for individuals, businesses and schools who train people to become practitioners in a specific field or modality. The intention is that when student’s graduate from your course they will be eligible for professional membership and practitioner insurance through IICT. 

Does IICT accredit courses? Will my students be able to apply for a provider number?

IICT is a self-regulated business and therefore we cannot use the terms “Nationally Recognised” or “Accredited.”  

Approved Training Provider status must only be referenced in conjunction with the IICT name and common seal on promotional materials, both electronic and hard copy.

Additionally, being an ‘IICT Approved Training Provider’ (IICT ATP) does not provide the applicant with Registered Training Organisation status (RTO); nor is IICT affiliated with the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) or the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). To learn more about having your course accredited in Australia click here. You can also contact the ASQA on 1300 701 801 or email

Does IICT require or approve Continuing Education or Professional Development courses?

IICT does not require our members to complete Continuing Professional Development / Education courses to maintain their membership and insurance. Therefore it is not necessary for you to submit short courses, CPE courses, or personal development courses for review.  

The best way to determine if your course should be submitted is to ask this question: At the end of my course, will my participants be qualified to enter the marketplace as practitioners in this modality?

Will all of my courses / modalities be approved internationally?

IICT membership is recognised in 27 countries worldwide; however, International modality recognition is subject to approval of regional insurance partners. This is because each regional provider has a different set of criteria for assessing risk.

When your application is approved you will be notified which countries the modalities are recognised in for professional membership and insurance coverage.

Below is a list of all 27 countries that IICT currently operates in:

UK and Europe: United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Gibraltar, Liechtenstein, Iceland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Greece, Latvia
Sweden, Channel Islands, Norway, Estonia, Austria, Malta, Isle of Man,

South Africa (covered under the EU/UK insurer)

Oceania: Australia, New Zealand

United States


*Please note that Canada is not currently accepting new modality applications. Please contact us for special considerations.

What happens if my modality is not approved in a specific region?

If your modality is not approved with one of IICT’s insurance partners, you can still teach your course in that country / region. Your students will just need to find their own insurance in that country or you can recommend a provider for them. 

If your modality is not approved in your preferred region you can request a full refund within 14 days. 

Does IICT approve course levels such as Practitioner, Master, and Teacher?

IICT only approves the modality. Therefore if someone meets the minimum requirement to be a practitioner they will be approved for professional membership and insurance. 

Any additional training that a student undertakes would be covered under this modality, as long as they are practicing within the scope of their training. 

Once I am approved as a Training Provider are all of my courses approved in the future?

You are only permitted to use our Professional Seal for modalities approved by IICT. Should you wish to add additional modalities to your profile at any time, you must submit an application and receive approval. 

For example if in your original application you are approved to teach Reiki and Massage, but at a later point in time you want to begin teaching Kinesiology this will require that you submit an Existing Modality application to IICT. Upon receipt of your application we will review your course to ensure it meets our minimum training requirements.

If you want to teach a modality that is not currently recognised by IICT you will need to submit a New Modality application. We will then send this application to our Insurance partners and they will assess if they will cover the modality or not. Please note that International modality recognition is subject to approval of regional insurance partners. Depending on your Training Provider status a new modality application may be included in your membership. If not, there is a small administrative fee of $79.00 + GST for each new modality application that you submit. 

You can view a list of our approved modalities below:

Australia and New Zealand


United Kingdom 

United States 


Will my Training Provider membership automatically renew?

Should you wish to cancel at any time, please send correspondence via email with your intention to Your subscription will still be valid for the remainder of that term. Upon receipt of your request you will receive a written confirmation. If for any reason you do not receive a written confirmation please follow-up via email or phone.
