What Is an AIP Approved Institute Certification?
An AIP Approved Institute (AI) is an AIP approved, certified Trainer who is awarded certification recognition for having a training curriculum and testing that meets or exceeds AIP standards. These AI's are required to have their curriculum and testing periodically reviewed to make sure that their information remains as current as possible and that they still meet or exceed AIP standards.


Benefits of Becoming an AIP Approved Institute
- Your graduates can easily become Board certified by AIP because your training(s) is/are pre-approved and you have already verified their identity. Your graduates only need to send in to AIP a copy of their completion certificate from you, a completed AIP application form, and payment.
- You only pay one (1) affiliation fee annually since AIP is one (1) organization that offers certifications in several modalities.
- AIP operates as if it is a not-for-profit organization. Therefore, we do not market or endorse trainings to your graduates. Your graduate data base remains your own.
- We do not provide affiliation referral fees to training companies so that AIP's certification process can remain as objective as possible.


Cost for Approved Institute Certification(s)
Approved Institute (AI) Certification is $100.00 annually.


How to Become an AIP Approved Institute?
1. You must be a current affiliate of AIP.
2. You must be AIP certified in each of the training modalities as a Trainer or Master Trainer and this/these certification(s) must be current.
3. Submit for approval a copy of your standards, your course outline, and any testing material with answers that you give to your students.
4. Submit a completed/signed AIP AI Application Form.
5. Payment.

4. AIP Certified Trainers follow a strict Code of Ethics.
