Science-based learning

ICPA is very proud to be the market leader in the global education industry in Asia.

We provide instruction and qualifications locally and internationally with a full package to train professionals to pass on international standard and cultural education.

Additionally, ICPA is exclusively accredited as the Japanese representative member of LEPSW – Leading Etiquette and Protocol Schools of the World, a group of protocol executives, and is a member of the organisation. Together with our other overseas members, the executive partners, we fully support organisations and individuals in transforming their social and professional lives through the acquisition of global standard studies.

By developing intercultural communication skills, clients can build trusting relationships with a wide range of people from across the globe.

Furthermore, in an era of global competition, soft skills, in addition to technical skills such as language and IT, can help you achieve better results. These skills are key to success in a global society.

In fact, these skills are precisely the skills of the Japanese spirit, which Japan has accumulated since ancient times. This is why the brand power of Japan, the country of courtesy and learning, is a major factor.

Those who achieve certification are awarded a decoration from ICPA and can proudly transmit this valuable science throughout the world.

When it comes to corporate training, we offer unique customised programmes and, together with top-class partners from around the world, we fully support the business success of our clients, who are leaders in today’s global society.
