How do I remain certified as a trainer?
TCI Trainer certification lasts for a period of two years. The expiry date is listed on your certification letter emailed from the RCCP. To remain certified, Trainer is required to attend a Trainer Update. Once requirements are met, certification will be for an additional 2 years.
If a Trainers Certification has expired, they are unable to train however continue to be eligible to attend an Update for an additional 12 months. If a TCI Trainer's certification surpasses 3 years since core training or an update, Trainer certification is expired and they are required to attend a TCI Train the Trainer course as a new participant.
All TCI Updates present additional material to the core TCI Training. Attendance alone does not provide recertification. Participants will be required to pass a knowledge exam and physical skills dependent on TCI certification.

TCI Associate Certified trainers and/or their home organisation, agency, or school may not charge a fee to individuals or organisations for the TCI training.
