Silver Partnership 
Example1 A company has 5 test professionals with Foundation certifications.
The certification points will be calculated as follows:

5 with Foundation: 5 X 1 = 5 points

Total number of certification points = 5

The company is eligible for the ISTQB® Partner Program Silver level

Example2

A company has 1 test professional with Advanced Test Manager certification and
1 test professional with Foundation certification.
The certification points will be calculated as follows:

2 with Foundation: 2 X 1 = 2 points

1 with Advanced TM : 1 x 3 (for Advanced) 

Total number of certification points = 5

The company is eligible for the ISTQB® Partner Program Silver level

Gold Partnership 
Example3

A company has a team of 8 test professionals: 6 testers with Foundation certification and 2 testers with Advanced Test Analyst certification.
The certification points will be calculated as follows:

8 with Foundation (2 of whom also hold other certificates): 8 X 1 = 8

2 with Advanced TA: 2 X 3 (for Advanced) + 2 X 1 (for Foundation) = 8 points

Total number of certification points = 14

The company is eligible for the ISTQB® Partner Program Gold level.

Example4

A company has 14 test professionals with Foundation certifications:

14 with Foundation: 14 X 1 = 14

Total number of certification points = 14

Although the number of points reaches the threshold, the company is not eligible for the ISTQB® Partner Program Gold level since it is necessary to have at least one person with an Advanced Level Certification.

Therefore, the company is eligible only for ISTQB® Partner Program Silver level.
