Frequently Asked Questions
Just as our courses are offered globally to meet the need for training throughout the world, so to our T3 Training Program will be offered globally.
To the extent possible, the cohort and classroom training will be organized by geography. For example, if several trainer candidates are based in Europe, they would be grouped into a cohort.
Each cohort’s in-person activities will be scheduled at a location that best meets the needs of that cohort. For example, if members of the cohort are in southeast Asia, then the in-person classroom training will be held in southeast Asia.
To reduce travel costs, face-to-face activities will be held in conjunction with other IAP2 or related events whenever possible.
In-person activities will be held at a location that best meets the needs of the entire cohort. The T3 Instructor will travel to that location. In this way, IAP2 can minimize travel time and costs to Trainer Candidates.
Our intent is to offer the T3 Program in a variety of languages. However, to accomplish this, we will need T3 Instructors who are fluent in those languages. Until we can achieve this goal, we will continue to provide the T3 program in English.

To offer the T3 training in French we need a T3 Instructor. We encourage qualified Licensed Trainers who are fluently bilingual to apply to become a T3 Instructor.
Currently, the Federation is only able to license individuals. However, based on member interest and need, the Federation is open to considering expanding this model to include the licensing of training companies.
For the 2017 Pilot, individuals interested in becoming a Foundations Licensed Trainer must submit an application and attestations from three referees by March 31. Once full implementation begins in 2018, regular deadlines for applications will be posted on the IAP2.org website and shared widely with members.
During training, candidates will be trained, mentored, and assessed by a highly qualified T3 Instructor. After they are certified, new Licensed Trainers will continue to receive mentoring by their T3 Instructor for two complete course deliveries or up to 1 year.
Trainer Candidates will become part of a cohort with three to five members. Cohorts will be formed to ensure geographic alignment whenever possible. The cohort will provide peer support throughout the learning process.
Once the training begins, it is expected to take about 6 months to complete the training and become fully licensed.
The training includes six online webinars, plus 2 days of classroom training, and concludes with co-delivery of the course. Trainers will complete assignments or demonstrate their skills during each component and pass an assessment before moving on to the next step.
