Please use the BCIA logo on any of your advertising materials (in accordance to BCIA's guidelines).
To access the BCIA logos, you must agree to follow the logo usage guideline by clicking the link at the bottom of this page.
Note: Within this document, a “certificant” refers to an individual who currently holds a BCIA certification, and a “BCIA-authorized organization” refers to any organization that has been granted permission by BCIA to use the logo.
- The logo may be used on business cards, letterheads, marketing materials, and resumes to indicate that a certificant is a current BCIA credential holder. Because individuals hold the BCIA credential, the logo may not be used to imply that a certificant’s agency, group practice, or staff is somehow certified by BCIA.
- The logo may be used by organizations or individuals who provide didactic training for certification and continuing education for certificants to indicate that their specific courses are BCIA-accredited.
- With separate approval from BCIA, non-commercial organizations may use the logo for purposes of education or promotion of BCIA.
- The logo may not be used on any product or product-related material.
- The logo may not be altered in any way other than to increase or decrease its size.
- The logo may not be translated or localized into any other language. Any localized versions of the logo must be provided by BCIA.
- The logo may not be displayed in any manner that suggests that a certificant is an employee of BCIA or in a manner that suggests BCIA is part of a company name. Use of the logo must clearly indicate that the certificant or BCIA-authorized organization is independent from BCIA.
- The logo may not be used in any manner that is derogatory or critical of BCIA.
- The logo may not be used in any manner that expresses or implies BCIA's affiliation, sponsorship, endorsement, certification, or approval, other than that set forth by the BCIA.
- The logo, or any elements thereof, may not be included in a certificant's or BCIA-authorized organization’s trade or business name, domain name, product or service name, logo, trade dress, slogan, or other trademarks.
- Certificants and BCIA-authorized organizations may not combine the logo with any other object, including, but not limited to: other logos, icons, words, graphics, slogans, numbers, design features, symbols, or web site audio (i.e. making another logo with the BCIA logo to create a variation).
- The logo may be embossed on paper, or it may be printed in either the original gold and black colors or in black and white.
- Special effects applied electronically (i.e. Photoshop, Corel, etc.) are not permitted. These include but are not limited to: drop shadows, bevel and emboss, outlines, etc.
- A certificant or BCIA-authorized organization shall stop the display and any other use of the BCIA logo as soon as possible after a lapse of certification, withdrawal of accreditation, or revocation of BCIA’s permission to use the logo.
- Any organization or individual which has not been granted permission to use the BCIA logo is forbidden to use the logo in any way whatsoever.
- The BCIA logo shall be no larger or more conspicuous than the name of the certificant or the name or logo of the BCIA-authorized organization.
- Certificants and BCIA-authorized organizations may not use the logo in any way other than as specified in these guidelines.
Compliance with Guidelines
BCIA may decide to update these regulations. BCIA certificants will be informed either in writing or via the web of any changes. BCIA reserves the right to spot check all marketing and promotional materials bearing the logo and may periodically send out requests for samples. Certificants and BCIA-authorized organizations must correct any deficiencies in their use of the logo. Refusal to correct such deficiencies or to cease publication could result in revocation of the certificant's certification or BCIA-authorized organization’s right to use the logo.
