Questions And Answers

Even if you have no prior experience, you can register as a tutor if you hold qualifications. Your level will be determined through an examination. To become a tutor at the dispatch level, we recommend obtaining specialist qualifications.

Please consult with us if you hold any of the following qualifications or similar qualifications:

  1. Specialist qualification from ICPA’s affiliated association, the ‘International Protocol Certification Association.’
  2. Qualifications as an instructor in protocol, etiquette, and cross-cultural communication (applicable both domestically and internationally).
  3. For English instructors, either an English teaching qualification or equivalent experience, with English proficiency at level C1 or higher.

The contract is a full-service outsourcing agreement. There are two components to compensation: performance-based hourly pay and completion bonuses.

For assigned lectures, the hourly wage is determined based on the instructor’s level. There is no compensation if there are no lectures.

Completion bonuses are paid when you secure contracts independently, and they are based on your success rate. This bonus also increases the hourly wage for those specific lectures.

For example, in the case of an ICPA course package worth 500,000 yen, if you are eligible for a 10% bonus based on your instructor level, you will receive an additional 50,000 yen, and your lecture hourly wage will be increased. This is considered a referral fee.

Training is conducted solely to explain the lecture process and the use of materials, as being a professional with prior experience is a prerequisite for instructor registration. For instructors looking to improve their skills or aiming to become specialists, we recommend enrolling in our programmes.

Furthermore, through the ICPA website, instructors can engage in global networking and exchange with fellow instructors.
