Transgender/Gender Diverse Care Therapy Certification Training

Professional training program and certification for working with the Transgender and Gender Diverse Community.

Are you looking to be better versed about the LGBTQIA+ Community and how the TGD population fits in?

Develop your therapy practice by learning about the Gender Expansive population and by becoming a Transgender Care Therapist through our specialized Training.

The International Transgender Certification Association (ITCA) provides credentialing and training to clinicians and professionals in their fields. Our course provides instruction on the standards of practice when working with the Transgender, Gender Non-Conforming, Non-Binary and Gender Diverse Community. Upon completion, students will receive continuing education credits/units and a diploma of certification. Therefore, this training is ideal for Clinicians, Therapists, Counselors, Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Case Managers, and those individuals who work directly with a Gender Expansive or Gender Diverse population; and are looking for formal training and continuing education credits.

Given the nature and attack of this vulnerable population by today’s law making and attitudes. There is a growing lack of knowledgeable providers working with the Gender Diverse Community. Our training is essential to building a culture of dignity, respect, and affirmation of the TGD people. Our program features current material on these topics. We use interactive videos, testimonials, panel presentations and expert instructors to keep students engaged. The Transgender Certification Association feels it is crucial that everyone has access to accurate and current information about the Transgender and Gender Diverse Population.

The purpose of ITCA is to provide comprehensive training that credentials healthcare professionals and community providers. We promote ethical guidelines and aim to develop networking resources for the LGBTQIA+ Community. Upon completion of our course, you will receive documentation to certify that you are a Transgender Care Therapist/Professional (TCT/TCP); and you will be awarded continuing education credits for your participation. AASECT CEs, NBCC CE, and FLorida CEUs are provided by Therapy Certification Training. Our Course is among the very first of it’s kind and considered one of the best programs on the subject.

What Our Students are Saying


Carrie Jacobs, Psy. D

The class was absolutely amazing and I love the way the curriculum is taught and I also love how the course stays on topic and mindful of time!  I’m happy that I decided to register for this and know I’ll be a better therapist. It was just so fabulous and I feel like I got such a wealth of information.


Lori K. Hall, Psy.D.

I just wanted to thank you again for everything. I had joint commission come to my door at the VA this week; The woman asked me if I had a specialty and I told her I am the LGBT VCC. She was intrigued. I told her about our program, what I do, and my certification. She put me on the agenda and came to spend time with me. Not to audit, but to learn. She took notes and was so thrilled by my knowledge, especially in transgender care. I explained about the ITCA program, showed her the WPATH standards of care, and emphasized consistent, insistent, and persistent. She wants to bring some of this knowledge forward to struggling organizations.

In the end, we got a glowing review because of ME!!! LOL, and I owe that to YOU!! Thank you for the program and your continued support!! ❤

The practical information about needs and medical interventions was massively helpful. I have a much better idea of what questions to ask, how to support / guide through various processes.


Nora Sahly

It’s great that it that there was an option to take this comprehensive course. I liked that I felt the course was in a professional and inclusive environment, with best speakers and faculty. The Panels were phenomenal. Well organized and detailed with wealth of information and a plethora of valuable Resources and Support.


Elnaz Mayeh

I learned how to competently and confidently work with transgender individuals who struggle with gender dysphoria. I learned about the transition process, the importance of not making assumptions, the right questions to ask, the importance of collaborating with other professionals, and providing proper referrals for additional support. Additionally, I learned how to write and what to include in carry letter and Gender Affirming Surgery letters.


Calista Naismith, PT, BSc, MScPT, PgCSH, ACC

This will change how I practice as it will make me more aware and understanding of the transition process as well as how to appropriately treat and address transgender individuals. It has taught me as well how to be an advocate and in what areas I can work on promoting and creating more access to transgender care.

The training was very informative, interesting, and will certainly promote my ability to work with the transgender community. I feel that much more competent to work with the transgender community and regret not taking this training sooner.
