The Scheme for Voluntary Certification of Yoga Professionals has been developed by the Quality Council of India at the behest and with the support of the Ministry of AYUSH. It envisages certification by independent third party personnel certification bodies duly accredited as per international standard ISO 17024 by NABCB.
The Ministry of AYUSH is not involved in the certification and QCI, as the Scheme owner, may undertake certification directly pending approval of personnel certification bodies under the Scheme.
The objective of this document is to define the process of certification of Yoga Professionals under the Scheme for Voluntary Certification of Yoga Professionals to promote uniformity in its implementation among the Personnel Certification Bodies (from now on PrCBs), the Yoga Professionals seeking certification, the national accreditation body, the National Accreditation Board for Certification Bodies (NABCB), and QCI, the Scheme owner.
For the purpose of this Scheme, scope of certification is being categorized as follows;
- Level 1 – Yoga Instructor Certification
- Level 2 – Yoga Teacher Certification
- Level 3 – Yoga Master Certification
- Level 4 – Yoga Acharya Certification
However the current certification process is applicable only to Level 1 – Yoga Instructor
