INLPTA trainers can issue an INLPTA certificate (post-certification) to a person who has been certified by other institutions or organizations, after a formal examination of the content and possibly with conditions or proof.
Parts of the training in duration, contents, qualification of the trainer, examination formats can be credited.
Possible missing time or contents have to be completed.
At the end the INLPTA Curriculi guidelines must be fulfilled.
If, for example, the training to be credited is 90 hours long and the metamodel was only dealt with superficially,
at least 40h have to be added (INLPTA min. 130h, and metamodel treated in depth)
the text of the certificate for Practitioner reads e.g.

In most cases there is a fee for the certificate with seal and possibly a post-certification fee.
