The 3 Training Models

The IPA accepts training models employed within its Constituent Organizations and their institutes, clearly based on the Eitingon, French and Uruguayan models, in meeting the IPA’s requirements for qualification.

How to become an IPA-qualified training analyst

The IPA does not appoint Training Analysts (analysts officially recognised as qualified to analyse candidates), although IPA Sponsoring Committees are responsible for the appointment of Training Analysts within Study Groups. We do, however, appoint Interim Training Analysts.
