Globalization represents a revolutionary integration of capital, technology and information across national borders in a way that is creating a single global market and, to some degree, a global village. While globalization is of greatest concern to businesses and agencies working transnationally, globalization trends affect all businesses whether or not they are truly global. The International Training certifications are designed for the sophisticated manager who knows from his/her experience THAT EVERY MANAGER IS A TRAINER and further that TRAINING, LIKE MOST BUSINESS FUNCTIONS, IS GLOBAL/INTERNATIONAL IN ITS OUTLOOK.

The Level I program focuses on three aspects of the International Professional Trainer. They are:

The Trainer as a Technical Expert
The Trainer and His/Her Training Environment
The Trainer as an Organizational Change Agent

The Level II program focuses on The Trainer as a Training Manager

The Level III program focuses on the Trainer as a Top Management Executive, typically responsible not only training, but other Human Resource Management functions as well.

Candidates in this certification program are expected to be highly motivated, disciplined, self-starters.

The unique delivery modality allows this program to be offered on-site at any company or governmental agency that wishes to bring the program directly to its employees. In addition, the program can be given online, using Blackboard or another online learning courseware. These delivery modes can increase student and company convenience by reducing travel time, missed work hours and incidental costs that normally accrue to students.

This Certification Program is a core certification program of the American Certification Institute. This program offers the designation of CERTIFIED INTERNATIONAL PROFESSIONAL TRAINER (CIPT), CERTIFIED INTERNATIONAL PROFESSIONAL TRAINING MANAGER (CIPTM), and CERTIFIED INTERNATIONAL PROFESSIONAL TRAINING CONSULTANT (CIPTC) to candidates who demonstrate their understanding of the fundamentals of the profession through the successful completion of rigorous professional certification examinations based upon the INTERNATIONAL PROFESSIONAL TRAINER BODY OF KNOWLEDGE. (IPTBOK).

Examinations
Completion of the certification program requires completion of multiple choice examinations for both the CITP and CIPTM and completion of a written and oral examination for the CIPTC. The examinations are prepared by a Board of Examiners consisting of a range of Certified, Sustaining, and Educator Members within the Institute.

The examination locations are determined by the individual candidates and their proctors. A proctor may be an individual who is currently an active Certified Member, or a manager, supervisor, teacher, professor, or anyone of such standing. Each proctor is determined on a case-by-case basis. ACI wishes to make it possible for every qualified candidate to complete the certification program in a convenient and timely manner.

Professional Designations
Successful candidates are granted the designation of CITP for Level I, the designation of CIPTM for Level II, and CIPTC for Level III. The designations CITP, CIPTM, and CIPTC may be used just as similar recognitions are employed in accounting, insurance, medicine, law, and other professions. Either the full expression or the initials may be used after the individual’s name on business cards, stationery, etc.

Time Limitation
The Board of Examiners realizes that many applicants are employed on a full-time basis and, as such, are limited in the amount of time available to prepare for the examinations. Without some guiding time requirement, however, candidates tend to lose the concept of the examination program and the material covered. Therefore, the Board of Examiners has established a five year maximum time limit for acceptance of completed requirements for each of the three levels. The five year time period begins after the successful completion of the first examination. The time limitation may not be waived without the approval of the Board of Examiners.

Examinations
The certification program for Level I consists of an 80 question multiple choice examination prepared from the INTERNATIONAL PROFESSIONAL TRAINER BODY OF KNOWLEDGE (IPTBOK). The certification program for Level II consists of an 80 question multiple choice examination prepared from the INTERNATIONAL PROFESSIONAL TRAINER BODY OF KNOWLEDGE (IPTBOK). The certification program for Level III consists of a written and oral examination prepared from the INTERNATIONAL PROFESSIONAL TRAINER BODY OF KNOWLEDGE. International Trainers are increasingly called upon to communicate in a myriad of formal and informal ways. The evolving complexity of the field, the development of electronic information systems, technological innovations, and the development of different management structures and styles, calls for creative communications skills.

The Creative Component provides the candidate the opportunity to develop and display communications skills through either a formal research paper or an academic thesis. The candidate must write an original, documented paper of 3,000 to 5,000 words in length on a special aspect of international management. Grading will be on a pass-fail basis. The candidate must submit the title and outline to be reviewed and approved by the Examiner. The research paper may be written at any time while the candidate is enrolled in the certification program. Unlike the written examinations, a candidate may prepare and submit the paper at his/her own convenience.

The subject should be one with which the candidate is familiar by virtue of employment, or one in which he/she is particularly interested or specifically qualified to write. A work-related case study would be a good choice for many candidates. It is recommended that the research paper thoroughly cover a narrow subject, rather than superficially treat a broad one. The subject matter and its composition must be original with the candidate. All secondary sources must be properly referenced. The paper will be judged on the basis of the originality of its content and on its organization, logical development, grammar, and neatness of presentation.

Masters or Doctoral Theses: The Society will accept a copy of a candidate’s thesis as a qualifying submission if it directly addresses a facet of international management. The candidate must submit the title and outline to be reviewed by the Examiner to substantiate that the paper directly relates to the thrust of international management research papers. Upon acceptance of the outline, the candidate then submits a copy of the actual thesis to the Examiners. Upon receipt of the written thesis, the Examiners will schedule a telephonic or face-to-face oral examination to be conducted by a panel of three examiners. The examiners will orally examine the candidate to assure themselves the candidate has a grasp of the broad field of international training management.
