Due to the increasing demand for the IITTI certification,
and to protect the consumers from unqualified trainers offering an IITTI training program,
the IITTI Board of Directors agreed to the establishment of an independent organization called ISSTA
(International Soft Skills Trainer Accreditation) to be headed up by Patrick Chun, executive director of IITTI.
ISSTA will gradually implement a comprehensive train-the-trainer (TTT) program around the world,
and begin to license qualified graduates of this program
where they can call themselves "Licensed IITTI Trainer".
IITTI (pronounced as "ET") is similar to other popular standardized exams such as TOEFL, IELTS, and GMAT, except IITTI focuses on business soft skills such as personal appearance, professional behavior, and business communication.
