The purpose of the Accredited Trainer Provider (ATP) program is to provide Institutes with a globally recognized accreditation that will allow prospective clients seeking training in areas of the CMC competency framework to have a level of assurance in those offering and delivering such materials.
Standards for the ATP are established by ICMCI and implemented by each Institute participating in the program. ICMCI will ensure Institute compliance with these standards as part of the triennial Institute assessment; thus only full members of ICMCI will be eligible to participate in the ATP program.
Organizations who are successful in being recognized as an ATP will be added to a global register of ATP’s maintained by ICMCI and will be entitled to use the designation “ATP” in their promotional materials including the use of an ICMCI approved ATP logo. Institutes may wish to develop unique partnering arrangements with approved ATP’s to mutually develop education and training programs that promote the CMC competency framework as well as the CMC designation.
Standards for the ATP
Two documents outline details of the ATP and provide the basic standards against which implementation will be developed:
- The “Accredited Training Provider Scheme” provides background to the program and the requirements that organizations wishing to become an ATP must satisfy;
- The “Equivalency Checklist” for the ATP designed for assessing Institutes compliance with the ATP scheme requirements.
It is anticipated that the above standards will be developed and updated based on experience of early implementation by Institutes.
