ISST Training & Certification Advisory Board
The ISST Training & Certification Advisory Board (TACB) acts as an advisory board for the ISST Executive Board (EB) on any issues related to T&C referred to them for review. For example, changes in the certification requirements would be reviewed by this group and recommendations made to the EB. The board’s capacity is advisory only as any decisions would be made by the elected EB as is the overall ISST procedure. This group consists of active senior trainers and ISST Certification Program Directors or T&C Committee chairs selected by the EB. They will serve renewable 4 year terms (with the exception of the Honorary President, Jeff Young who will continue on this board).
TAB members will not serve concurrently on the EB. The liaison to the TACB will be the Board Representative for Training & Certification; however, this liaison will not be a voting member of the TAB. The TAB is not intended to serve as a program committee for conferences, but rather, as an advisory body. Programs for the training events can be referred to them for input.
The first TCAB members are: Wendy Behary, Jeff Conway, Ida Shaw, Vartouhi Ohanian, Arnie Reed, Graham Taylor, Gerhard Zarbock, Christine Zens, and Ofer Peled. As of 12-1-2018 the EB has appointed Joaan Farrell, former Coordinator of Training & Certification as the chair of the committee. Jeff COnway, due to his election tto tthe EB will withdraw from the committee as of the same date. A member representing the Netherlands is currently under consideration by the Dutch ST Registry Board. Jeff Young, ISST Honorary President will also be a member. The chair will convene meetings as requested by the EB. The TCAB can also originate suggestions for changes in the T&C area to the EB.
