In 2023 there will be an advanced professional development TA training group meeting in Bucharest. The minimum requirement for entry to the group is completion of the YTCi TA foundation course or equivalent. Using TA philosophy and practice YTCi trainers will create a supportive atmosphere in which you can safely develop both professionally and personally. TA training is focused on professional and personal growth. The workshops include theoretical input, discussions, supervision and self experience. You will learn TA concepts and methodology and apply the theory to your professional practice. You will have opportunity for using the TA approaches within the group and for receiving supervision of your professional practice.


Preparing for qualification as a Transactional Analyst is process orientated and competency-based offering you the opportunity for personal and professional reflection.

YTCi has created this pdf description of all the requirements along with a description of the relationship between the various professional bodies and a description of the process of application - along with the relevant links to follow.  


YTCi uses the information received from ARAT regarding requirements for recognition in Romania. Trainees are responsible for ensuring that they fulfil the current requirements by both ARAT and other professional bodies within Romania.


These are currently under revision in CPR and ARAT - for upto date details contact ARAT.
