CONSUMER WARNING :: EXPIRED CERTIFICATIONS - Monday, December 15, 2014

The IBCT has observed proliferation of training centers and trainers using the media suggesting they are certified by the IBCT.

Others use it even on certificates while their certification is already expired and they doesn't have permission to use these hallmark(s). Organizations or trainers that make such declarations, use misleading (vague) communication and/or false promises that they are certified and/or using one of the hallmarks of the IBCT - while their certification is expired - are a violation of the law and consumer rights. 

Consumers, organizations or (candidate) trainers are advised not to fall prey to these misleading practices.  Certificates of expired certified training centers with IBCT hallmarks are NOT endorsed and acknowledged by the Board.
