The U.S. version of the IACC curriculum is based on the original Salzburg IACC training program but has been modified due to U.S. necessities. Our program consists of four seminars, an exam and a thesis.
IACC-NA Membership and Accreditation (www.iaccna.com)
You may become a “provisional member” after you have participated in your first seminar. To reach the second highest status of “associate member” all four seminars are required ( Seminar 1 is required before continuing on with Seminars 2, 3, and 4 which will not fall necessarily into sequence), presentation of the home assignments and passing the IACC oral exam. Full international IACC accreditation (Diploma) is given after the above requirements have been met and a thesis has been written.
Note: Ultimate accreditation is not a necessity to participate in the education program. You may participate for the information value only. An attendance certificate is awarded for each seminar you take.
