IBCT Trainers Recertification

Re-certification is the process of renewing one’s certification. To maintain IBCT certification, you must be prepared to continue to learn and grow.

Why it's Important?

A brief description of why recertification is important
Achieving certification from the IBCT is a long-term commitment to yourself, your career, and the HRD profession. Recertification is the process of renewing one’s certification. To maintain certification, you must be prepared to continue to learn, grow, and increase your current knowledge, skills and positive attitudes.
With recertification, you are demonstrating your commitment to staying current in the field of Human Resources Development. Recertification says you are building upon your knowledge, growing as a professional and increasing your experience daily. All IBCT trainers’ certifications are valid for three years.


Recertification is required every three years through demonstrated professional development (for those who keep re-certifying themselves every three years) or retaking IBCT qualifying exam for those who missed their re-certification deadline once or more.

The core components of the system

What is it?

This online system is dedicated to the re-certification of IBCT Certified Trainers (CT/HRDC). The core of the system encompasses four main sections as illustrated on the right side of this section. The four sections are contained in a module that has 4 tabs, one tab for each section.
1- System Instructions
The first section is for system’s instructions

The system’s instruction section is important to be read thoroughly to understand how the system works and to acquaint the system users with the learning activities that are accepted by the Board and the continuous educational credit for each learning activity type.

2- The e-Planner Tool
The second section is for the e-planner tool

The e-Planner tool is a simple and smart electronic system that developed to allow our certified trainers to simply and effortlessly plan their professional development activities for the coming three years.

3- Reflective Report e-Facilitator
The third section is for reflective report e-facilitator

The reflective report facilitator is a simple electronic tool that will smartly guide and facilitate our certified trainers to professionally report on a major learning experience they went through during the past 3 years of certification.

4- Crash Course Selector
The fourth section is for selecting the re-certification e-course of choice

The Board has partnered with the biggest e-learning platform, Study.com, to develop a bunch of crash e-courses. Those crash courses will serve as powerful tools to support the achievement of one main goal of IBCT which is trainers’ professional development and continuous education.

Since 2020, studying and passing, at least one crash course, became one main requirement for attaining eligibility for recertification.
