Prerequisites:

  • A minimum of a HS diploma or equivalent
  • Language proficiency proof in native and other language


Language Proficiency Proof:

  • TCI accreditation requires testing in the participant’s non-native language only. Proficiency in the NATIVE language is usually provided through a high school diploma or higher degree where the language of instruction is the native language of the candidate.  If the participant grew up in the U.S. speaking both languages, we will test only the non-English language. 


Note: A participant with a college degree from an accredited university where the native language was the instruction language can be exempt from the language proficiency test requirement for that language.


Under the TCI® license agreement you must pass a neutral third-party language assessment.  The language proficiency testing ensures that there is a basic level of fluency in both English and the Target Language. If you already have a copy of your scores from a recognized fluency test, please contact us to determine if it can take the place of the required language assessment.
