About IBCT

About IBCT


The International Board of Certified Trainers (IBCT) was originally founded in 1988 as a professional association in the United States. Currently it’s a global foundation acting under the European law.  IBCT’s mission is to improve the training profession and the public’s perception of it.  It has regional headquarters spread over several regions, i.e., the United States, Middle East & Africa (MENA), Australia and Europe. IBCT is an independent certification authority that certifies trainers & HRD professionals, train-the-trainer (TTT/TOT) programs, training centers & facilities and training packages and/or materials.

We are a not-for-profit foundation so we can offer an independent certification that is not influenced by any commercial interests.
IBCT MENA is the Middle East & North Africa Headquarters of the IBCT. We conduct several activities related to HRD. Mainly, we internationally certify trainers (via a world-class multi-level TOT program); internationally certify training centers and materials/packages.
The IBCT MENA vision is to become a leading center of excellence and a key benchmark in the field of human resources development across the MENA area.
To promote the HRD professional concepts and practices, particularly training, secure the international standards in training and HRD practices and provide highly qualified human resources, trainers & HRD and talent professionals; who are able to achieve the sustainable development in Egypt and the MENA area.
The main goal of the IBCT is to assure the public that our Certified Trainers and HRD professionals possess the ethical standards and the professional competences and are qualified to practice.
