What is a new modality?

A new modality is an existing modality that is not currently recognised by IICT for professional membership and insurance or a modality that you have pioneered.

You can view our current approved modalities list by region below: 

Australia / New Zealand 


United Kingdom 

United States


Who can apply to add a new modality?

You can apply to add a new modality if you are a Pioneer, Approved or Premier Training Provider with IICT. Learn more here.

If you are a practitioner of a new modality, please contact your educator and ask them to apply with IICT.

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, Canada

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. 

Your Modality Approved Or We Will Refund 100% of Your Money Back!

If for any reason your new modality is not approved we will refund your application fee in full. That’s zero risk and no questions asked.
