2. How do I qualify for the Institute’s Global Affiliate Programme?
In order to qualify for the Institutes Global Affiliate Programme, you must first apply via the Affiliate section of the Institute website here https://www.itpm.com/affiliates/ – We assess the suitability of a potential affiliate on a case by case basis as no one affiliate is exactly the same as another. If you fit into the above categories of Community and Media ownership, you have a corporate ethos that overlaps with the Institutes and you have favourable distribution, then you will have a high chance of success in joining our affiliate programme.
Please note, we do not accept affiliates that have access to small communities of traders / media distribution. This is simply because it is not worth our time to set up the programme for very little or no gain in growing our own community. This is also due to the fact that many people attempt to join our affiliate programme for the purpose of trying to get our education for themselves. Our screening process will not allow this. The Institutes Global Affiliate Programme is intended solely for registered businesses / corporates that provide turnkey sizeable distribution for the Institutes education.
