There are two types of fees in the Partner Program:

  • Registration Fee
  • Partnership Fee

Registration and Partnership fees are annual, and must be paid when applying to the Partner Program for the first time, and for every renewal or upgrade of a Partnership level.

The Registration fee is nonrefundable and must be paid in order for ISTQB® to process an organisation's application form, and is set to be on the amount of 100 Euro. The amount is aimed to cover administrative work carried out by both ISTQB® and the Member Board or Exam Provider. This work includes maintaining website and Partner Program Database information, checking of eligibility, producing official letters, etc.

The annual Partnership fee differs according to the Partnership Level:

  • Silver – The cost of two (2) Foundation exams as set by the Member Board or Exam Provider with whom the Partnership Program is managed;
  • Gold – The cost of four (4) Foundation exams as set by the Member Board or Exam Provider with whom the Partnership Program is managed;
  • Platinum – The cost of eight (8) Foundation exams as set by the Member Board or Exam Provider with whom the Partnership Program is managed;
  • Global – an additional flat fee of 2,000 Euro.
