    OTHER INFORMATION

    Training Providers (TP) wishing to advertise their courses as being ISTQB® compliant must pass an accreditation process which is designed to ensure that:

    • Training materials conform with the current syllabi
    • Trainers have relevant experience and skills in both software testing and training
    • Organisations have access to facilities adequate for delivering training

     

    ANZTB welcomes applications for accreditation and provides support in the application process.

    The benefits of ISTQB® accreditation for a company include:

    • The company will be authorised to use both the “ISTQB® Accredited Training Provider” and/or “ISTQB® Accredited Training Materials” logos to advertise its courseware
    • The company’s logo and contact details will be included on the Accredited Training Providers page of the ANZTB website. 
    • The company will be kept up-to-date with developments in software testing through regular communications from the ANZTB Training Provider Liaison
    • Potential customers will be directed to accredited training providers
    • Support and assistance from the ANZTB Training Provider Liaison Officer will be available

    There are three levels of accreditation, which are described below.

    1. Company Accreditation (mandatory)

        One-time cost cost: $2,500 

    2. Courseware Accreditation

        Initial cost: $2,500     Renewal: $1,500  (due every syllabus change)

    Note that all fees are in $AUD (+ GST), apply per module and fees are to be paid prior to the courseware being evaluated.

    If a TP’s courseware fails accreditation and they resubmit their materials, they maybe charged a further $500 + GST for re-assessment.

    Organisations seeking courseware accreditation must submit their materials, slides and exercises to the ANZTB for review and appraisal.

    TPs must use accredited material.

    If a TP has courseware which is already licensed by another ISTQB® exam provider or national board of the ISTQB®, then the ANZTB will recognise this accreditation and no courseware accreditation fees will be payable. (This is common for TPs who re-license materials from another TP).

    Note that documentary evidence must be sighted by the Accreditation Team and a short site visit maybe required.

    3. Trainer Accreditation

        Cost: No charge

    Trainers seeking accreditation must submit evidence to the ANZTB of their:

    • Qualification in the course they plan to teach
    • Experience in software testing relevant to the areas they plan to teach
    • Competence in being able to deliver training, build rapport, communicate with groups, and impart learning.

    The submission form and details of the accreditation process are available at the end of this page.

    Materials may be submitted in hard or soft copy and must include:

    • Slide-decks
    • Student manuals and exercises
    • Instructor notes
    • A course timetable showing the duration of each topic
    • A cross reference table showing where each syllabus learning objective is covered in the learning materials (i.e. slides and manual). Note that a blank cross reference table containing the syllabus requirements may be obtained from ANZTB on request.

    All items submitted to ANZTB will be retained by the ANZTB and held in confidence.

    All course materials and examinations are in English.

    Re-accreditation may be necessary under the following circumstances:

    Expiry of the three year term. In this case re-accreditation will be charged at the current re-accreditation rate. The TP will be required to provide an up to date copy of their materials to ANZTB.

    Changes made to the courseware by the TP. If any changes (other than minor cosmetic modifications) are made to the courseware, the TP must resubmit the material for re-accreditation. This will be charged at the normal re-accreditation rate.

    New version of syllabus released. When syllabi are updated, TPs will be notified prior to release and provided with guidance. 

    Note that if a TP’s accreditation lapses, they will be treated as an initial applicant and charged accordingly.
