Training Course Accreditation Fees

The following fees apply for accreditation of a training course in any of Certification for People Programs of The Open Group.

The fees below are for accreditation of a single course and cover delivery in one language and via one delivery method. The fee is dependent upon whether the course is entirely new or reuses the quality system or training materials of an accredited course. Fees for additional delivery languages and delivery methods are provided in the next table. Fees are payable at the time of registration for accreditation and annually thereafter.
