Frequently Asked Questions
We thank you for your interest in training with ICC.
Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions about our Level 3 and Level 4 training programs.
Can I shadow an IC on set?
Shadowing opportunities are reserved for our Level 4 students.
Do I need the 300 hours on film &/TV sets prerequisite?
Yes, the minimum 300 hours or 5 years experience on set is a requirement for applying to ICCs Level 3 program. For more information on the prerequisites for our programs, head to our Pathway to Certification page here.
I have a theatre background, do I need the film &/TV industry experience?
Yes, film experience is required. At this time we are only training for Intimacy Coordination in the film & TV industry, and on set experience is a requirement for training with ICC.
Are IDC and ICC Level 3 the same program?
Does application to one, mean acceptance & possible Certification by both organizations?
No, Intimacy Directors and Coordinators are our (ICC) American affiliate, and we have different training programs resulting in two different Certifications.
ICC and IDC share Level 1 & 2 programs. We branch off at the Level 3 program where we offer two different educational pathways for training and possible Certification.
One would need to complete Level 3 and Level 4 with each individual organization to hold certification by both.
I am Certified by another organization. Can I be on the ICC website?
We are looking toward a future where ICC memberships with Intimacy Coordinators Certified by other organizations can become a part of our community, but at this time, presence on our website is limited to those whom have trained through our Level 3 and Level 4 programs.
How do I apply for Level 3?
Applications are now open for the next round of Level 3 training scheduled to begin in January 2024*.

Does acceptance into Level 3 guarantee my acceptance into
No, both Level 3 and Level 4 training programs are by application only and will have separate application processes.
Application to Level 4 requires a Comprehension exam to be completed for assessment of the required foundational knowledge for acceptance into the Level 4 Apprenticeship program.
