Recognition Of Lift Certificates (For Members Only)

(5) Who can verify my lift?

One of the three methods below will work:

First Method: Any member of the International Powerlifters Council, LLC can verify a lift for another member.  After ordering your certificate, send us an email with the lift performed, the weight lifted, your body-weight at the time of the lift, and the date performed along with the name & membership number of the person who verified your lift and body-weight.

Second Method: After ordering your certificate, you can send us a video link (YouTube, Vimeo, DropBox, etc) of two clips. The first clip should be of the actual lift performed.  The second clip should be of you weighing yourself.  We’ll need to hear your voice and see the scale reading in your video. One of our council members will then review your lift and verify if appropriate.

Third Method: Any successful lift completed at an event from a major power-lifting organization and listed on their results posting.  After ordering your certificate, just email us the link to the posting that verifies you lift… and you’re all set.

(20) Would I be able to obtain credits for my course at a local college/university?

In most cases, no. Every college and university has its own admissions policy regarding the granting of credits. You would have to contact the school that you are interested in applying to for that information. Most schools that grant credit for our course does so by classifying them as “life experience credits”.

(21) Does __________ company or __________ agency recognize certificates from International Powerlifting Council?

You’ll have to ask the company or agency yourself.  Being an International vocational training company, it would be impossible for us to track that information.

(22) After completing my course, can I use my certificate for licensing purposes?

No. Our courses are professional development / vocational courses.

(23) What’s the difference between your course and _________’s course(s)?

That answer we leave up to YOU to determine. Write down the cost of tuition for both courses, their online or in-person type, and their table of contents / agenda. Once you have that info side-by-side, you’ll know the difference between the two!

(24) Why should I take this courses if it doesn’t license me in my specific gym / association?

To stand out! Everyone in your area will typically have the same license, or certification… in order to be legal.  You want to HAVE MORE education than they have.  You want to have a better looking resume, more knowledge, and a more professional vocabulary that the other people applying for the job / contract that you want.

(25) Will IPC put the number of hours on my certificate?

Only if you ASK us to. So, after enrolling – be sure to email us and let us know you’ll need that done.

(26) Does the word “ONLINE” appear on the certificate?

No
