Training in TA—whether for personal or professional growth— is offered around the world by institutes and certified individuals. To find out what training is available in your region, visit the website of the TA association nearest you. (See also our calendar of upcoming exams and workshops below.)
The standards and guidelines for training toward certification—as a practicing, supervising, or teaching transactional analyst—have been established by the Professional Standards Division of the ITAA, in cooperation with the European Association of Transactional Analysis (EATA) and the Federation of Transactional Analysis Associations (FTAA, formerly WPATA). These training standards have been agreed upon worldwide and are mutually recognized by many regional TA associations. (Click on the Certification and Examinations Handbook at the left.)
Please use the new forms as of 2020.
