Training Provider Designation

Recognized Training Provider Designation

Recognized Training Providers are organizations or institutions that have chosen to apply and successfully completed ITA's Designation Review Process and are permitted to offer specified ITA-approved industry training programs.

The Designation Review Process provides quality assurance that Recognized Training Providers meet ITA's program standard for training facilities, instructor qualifications, curriculum, assessment processes, trade competencies and general operations.

ITA designation is program and location specific.
