ICC has high standards for acceptance into the Level 3 and Level 4 training programs. In the case that these requirements (such as industry experience, or other training) are barriers to applicants due to race, ability, etc. ICC offers the opportunity for applicants to appeal the requirement by providing arguments for related skills, or life experience that qualify them for training.
