Only licensed Sponsors and the Arica Institute are permitted to conduct Arica Trainings. Arica Institute requires each Sponsor to conduct its Arica Trainings in accordance with this Admissions Policy, as well as all applicable laws and regulations. Arica Institute is not responsible for any Sponsor’s failure to abide by this policy or any applicable laws or regulations. Each Sponsor is responsible for evaluating and admitting candidates for Arica Trainings conducted by that Sponsor, and exercises discretion over admission decisions for Arica Trainings conducted by that Sponsor, including discretion to decline admission to anyone who, in the opinion of the Sponsor, is unable to meet the admissions requirements. Any concerns regarding the application process or admissions decisions for an Arica Training should be directed to the Sponsor conducting that training.


The Arica Institute and licensed Sponsors admit students of any race, gender, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available through the Arica Institute or Arica Trainings.

Arica Institute and licensed Sponsors will make reasonable accommodations for qualified disabilities, provided these do not significantly interfere with the learning process and training environment of Arica Trainings.


In order to maintain the high quality of Arica Trainings, the Sponsor must exercise discretion over the application process, and reserves the right to deny admission to anyone who, in the sole discretion of the Sponsor, is unable to meet the admissions requirements.

  • Arica Trainings do not confer any professional qualification in Arica material, nor do they confer permission to teach or use the copyrighted material or other intellectual property in any way. In order to protect Arica Institute’s and/or Oscar Ichazo’s copyrighted material and other intellectual property, licensed Sponsors reserve the right to decline admission to a participant who:
    • has previously violated Arica’s and/or Oscar Ichazo’s intellectual property rights, including copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, or other proprietary rights;
