- Complete five years of postgraduate study group experience, including one year in a Supervision Training Group.
- Competence may be demonstrated for becoming a Training & Supervising Analyst by one of two ways:
- Achieving Board Certification by the an appropriate professional psychoanalytic affiliated organization (e.g. ABPsa, ABPP, or ABE BCD-P), or
- Writing up and presenting an analytic case to a panel of 5 Training & Supervising Analysts arranged by the ICP TSA Committee and discussing your philosophy and approach to supervision.
- Applicants for ICP TSA must be graduates either of ICP or of a psychoanalytic program that meets equivalency standards.
If you are already an approved Training & Supervising Analyst from another institute, and your program meets equivalency standards, you will likely qualify to be a TSA at ICP.

The application and instructions for becoming an ICP Training & Supervising Analyst can be found on the ICP website.
