ISTQB Re-Accreditation Process

Your status as an ISTQB Accreditation Training Provider expires within three (3) years. Near the end of this term, you are eligible to kick off the process for re-accreditation and submit yourself for a review. Re-accreditation may also invite a full-on audit of the training course owner.

This is a straightforward and efficient procedure, which is charged at the current re-accreditation fee, and training providers must provide their up-to-date teaching materials to SEETB. Approved, you, as the training course provider, receive accreditation for another three (3) years.

Re-accreditation is also triggered when substantial changes are introduced to the training process – this means any serious modifications that change the teaching material. In this case, the Training Provider is responsible to resubmit the material for re-accreditation. This is charged at the current re-accreditation rate.

Finally, re-accreditation occurs when a new version of the syllabi is released. Training Providers receive sufficient notice prior to said release and additional guidance in adapting their training process to the new materials. Re-accreditation resulting from a syllabus change may be charged at a reduced fee.


  • If your accreditation lapses and you miss the window for re-accreditation, you will be treated as an initial applicant instead and subject to accreditation fees.
  • Re-accreditation is also triggered upon initial Rejection or Disqualification of your application for accreditation. Under these circumstances, you should wait for at least 6 months upon receiving your Letter of Rejection.
