Short FAQs

You need to have your activities vetted to get your QR codes.

What do I need to offer IITTI Reading Program?

What do I need to offer IITTI Exams?

Starting Sep 2021, you need to be a Licensed IITTI Trainer. See ISSTA below.

Do I need to be an Associate to use or sell IITTI Exams, Reading Program and Activities?

No. Associates are volunteering advocates. They promote the IITTI World Civility Index standards.

Can you summarize?

In other words, you don't need to be a Licensed IITTI Trainer in order to use the QR code. The only thing that a Licensed IITTI Trainer can do is that it allows her students to sit for an IITTI exam. Here are the details:

IITTI products Who can use it?
...and grant World Civility Index points
IITTI Activities (lectures, seminars, etc.) with QR code All trainers
IITTI Reading Program with QR code and/or a special link All trainers
IITTI Exams (e.g. Business 'Level 1') Only Licensed IITTI Trainers

What do I need for my training company to be "IITTI-recognized"?

You need 25% of your trainers to have passed the IITTI Business 'Level 1' Exam.

Can I have exclusive rights to my country?

No. IITTI is an open standard, and is for everybody. It is "just a test" and doesn't deal with the commercial side of things. Talk to Orange Consortium below instead.

从2021年九月开始,所有培训师如要提供培训(“IITTI培训”)并让学生能参加 IITTI 考试的,均需获得国际软技能培训师认证组织授予牌照。 ( (如果你是只想参加 IITTI 阅读计划和活动,你不需要ISSTA。)

与此同时,IITTI 和 ISSTA 所有商业合作现在都由 Orange 软技能培训师联盟完成。 ( Orange 联盟现负责处理所有的商业合同,如分销权、合资企业、合作伙伴关系等。

Think like this:

  • IITTI - just a test
  • ISSTA - license for trainers
  • Orange - commercial contracts
