Benefit of the IPC certificate 

One of the main benefits of becoming an IPC MLA member is the right to issue certificates under the IPC logo. IPC certificates are based on Certification Schemes developed by experts in member organizations, and are internationally recognized.

IPC certificates are valuable to persons working abroad to document their competence. It is also an asset for the accredited personnel certification body issuing the certificates, to be an IPC MLA signatory, and it may increase the certification volume.
