COVID-19 Safety Measures: Health and safety measures at PearsonVue test facilities differ depending on your location. Please find specific test delivery information for Pearson VUE-owned centres on the following link https://home.pearsonvue.com/coronavirus-update 

Please note that some third-party test centers around the world are operating at limited or changed capacity based on their own discretion outside of government mandates in affected areas. They may also institute additional precautionary measures (such as the mandatory use of masks) to protect candidates and employees during this time. Not following PearsonVue COVID-19 safety measures will result in denied access to the test facilities.


TIC Council operates two certification programmes under the IFIA Certification Programme (ICP) for both petroleum inspectors and agricultural superintendents which are open to TIC Council member companies and to non-member organisations who can register for the programme. Its main objective is to set a standard of attainment for individual inspectors and superintendents such that clients can be confident that certified inspectors and superintendents attending their cargos have the necessary knowledge and skills to perform their duties.


TIC Council has operated a Petroleum Inspector Certification Programme since 1998. Please follow the link below to access details of the programme worldwide:

The programme is widely accepted by client organizations and is available to TIC Council member companies and also to non-member organizations who successfully complete a registration process.


Beginning in September 2014, TIC Council has operated an Agricultural Superintendent Certification Programme (Oils and Fats). Please follow the link below for more details:
