TI Professional Qualifications

Many people have accomplished professional achievements and contributions which are not recognised through academic qualifications alone. The attainment of a professional qualification is the clearest way of demonstrating possession of a sound knowledge of the industry and a high standard of professional competence. TI professional qualifications are held by men and women of distinction in industry and commerce throughout the world. The qualifications are acknowledged by many national governments, as well as by employers. They affirm that the holder has proved his/her ability to practise in addition to having academic knowledge of their subject.


Licentiateship

The Licentiateship is a professional qualification awarded to members who have a good level of knowledge or expertise in one specialist textile area and a general awareness of textiles in related areas, or who have a broad general knowledge of textiles, together in either case with sufficient professional experience, as detailed below:

This prestigious award is valued because it:

  • recognises work-related competence, integrity and expertise at a professional level
  • facilitates public recognition of the holder’s worth
  • acknowledges achievement of a recognised international standard
  • entitles holders to use the letters LTI after their names.

The Licentiateship is covered by the European Union's first Professional Qualifications Directive (92/51/EEC).
