What can I do if the Candidates cannot afford the ITC training fee?
The ITC organizer has the authority to make a payment agreement. The only set fee is the IKO fee. The Organizer determines the final price based on his expenses.
When and how should ITC Candidates fees be paid to the IKO?
The candidates can pay their IKO fee directly to the IKO through the online booking system. The center fee can be paid directly to the center.Otherwise, organizers will receive an invoice for training fees that are usually sent out after the candidates of the training have been certified. Fees are to be paid to the IKO within 30 days after receiving the invoice. If the invoice is not paid before the due date, the school risks suspension.
How can I attract more Candidates to the ITC or IEC?
Firstly, we recommend you to schedule the ITC at least 1 year in advance.

Candidates can only take an ITC course if they meet the prerequisites for it. If an Examiner eliminates a Candidate, the Organizer will refund that Candidate the center fee. The IKO fee is still valid for 1 year and can be used to attend another course once prerequisites have been met.
How soon must I cancel the ITC if I don't have enough Candidates?
