Primary Evaluation Measures of Determining PCT® Members’ Levels
Calculate your points .. and evaluate yourself.

We have adopted the point evaluation method to evaluate the potential members of the PCT® program. Trainers may evaluate their training-related achievements to calculate the important aspects of training qualifications. This process presents an opportunity for trainers to enhance and improve their experience in the training industry in the short and long term.

You may perform the evaluation by calculating the points yourself. Feel free to contact CGC® or any of our authorized centres for a free consultation on how to raise your score beyond the 25 points mark.
Once you achieve 25 points or more, you will be eligible to join the PCT® program without the need to undergo the PCT® Qualification Exam.
Please note that this evaluation method along with other measures of evaluation all play a role in determining the appropriate membership level of potential members.

Upgrade to Higher Levels as a PCT® Trainer
We start with professionalism .. and we keep climbing higher.

Based on our ongoing training efforts since 1995, our team established the three primary trainer classification levels. As our team and experience grew in 2010, PCT® founded the current classification system we use today, which improves and develops the trainers’ PCT® Career Path that promotes a society of professional trainers.

Thus, we rely on an accurate methodology that reflects on our members’ performance and achievements on-field. This system does not translate higher levels into superiority nor proficiency over other levels, but is an observation of the trainers’ achievements before and during their membership.

When classifying trainers, the PCT® Administration Team takes the following factors into consideration:

1. Preliminary measurements for evaluating the membership application.
2. The final score of the PCT® Qualification Exam (if applicable).
3. Training achievements before joining the PCT® program.
4. Training achievements during the PCT® membership.
5. The trainer’s contributions to the development of the training industry.
6. Organizations’ and participants’ feedbacks concerning the trainer’s performance (customer satisfaction).
Based on the aforementioned factors, we classify our PCT® trainers based on the following hierarchy:

PCT® Training Consultant
PCT® Training Expert
PCT® Training Advanced
PCT® Training Practitioner
PCT® Training Associate

Note: after 6 months has lapsed while being in the same level, any member has the right to apply to advance to the next level. The application will be reviewed and evaluated in accordance with PCT® protocols and procedures.
