An ISTQB® accredited training provider is someone who has extensive knowledge and experience in testing, and can provide additional insights into testing terminology and the syllabus content, to make it easier to attain the ISTQB® certifications.
Training companies that offer ISTQB® compliant courses must first undergo an application process. The National/Regional Board review their course materials regarding coverage of the ISTQB® syllabus. This ensures that someone taking a course with this company has a reasonable chance to pass the exam. It is required that courses be taught by an ISTQB® Certified Tester. Other factors, such as experience in training of software professionals and experience in testing, the provision of adequate facilities, and documentation of quality assurance procedures within the applicant's company, also influence the National/Regional Board decision on accreditation.
