Registry of PPI Trainers

You can use the Registry of PPI Trainers to locate a PPI trainer that is active in your country. The individuals below are self-reported trainers, all of whom have passed the PPI Knowledge Test, developed by the PPI Team to assess an adequate level of understanding of the PPI. 

Please note that inclusion on this registry does not represent an endorsement by the PPI Team in the quality of any trainer. The PPI Team is not responsible for the content or execution of trainings provided by individuals or organizations working independently from the PPI Team and is not liable to any third party under any theory of liability for any damages arising out of or in connection with the same.

Due to the PPI's recent transition to IPA, we are currently not accepting new applications. We will notify you when we are ready to accept applications again. You may also check the Social Performance Task Force's Technical Assistance database for PPI trainers.
