In the training profession, the training certification provided by the International Board of Certified Trainers (IBCT) is recognized as one of the most prestigious available. A key component of earning that certification is successfully completing an academic course on training.

Typically, this is a semester long university level course – with one and only one exception- TrainSmart’s three Day Train-the-Trainer Certification Workshop.

Since 2010, The IBCT has recognized that people who successfully complete this workshop meet their eligibility requirements to apply for the IBCT professional certification. Visit our page on the Train-the-Trainer Course to learn more about the course and the cities and dates when it is being offered this year.
