How the LPI Approved Training Partner program works

As a part of the LPI Approved Training Partner Program, qualified Partners carry out the preparation for the examinations. These Partners work exclusively with certified trainers and certified training materials. The LPI ATP Program differentiates and substantially increases the objective standing of training organizations by showing a higher level of commitment to LPI through the use of third party-approved training materials, LPI certified instructors, and adherence to LPI's Training and Academic Code of Ethics (see the LPI ATP Partner contract).

We offer two different membership levels in the LPI ATP program, namely LPI Approved Training Partner and LPI Gold Approved Training Partner. In addition to the requirements imposed on LPI Approved Training Partners, LPI Gold Approved Training Partners must also meet the following requirements:
1. They must employ at least two trainers with the LPI Certified Trainer LPIC-1 designation.
2. They must conduct at least one training unit each year related to the preparation for LPI certification and be able to verify this upon request.
In addition to the rights that LPI Approved Training Partners are granted within the program, LPI Gold Approved Training Partners are also granted the following rights.
The Partner is entitled to use the LPI Gold Approved Training Partner logo on Approved Training Materials (LPI ATM) and in connection with the program, e.g. for advertising and promotion purposes. And he is entitled to be denoted with the higher designation LPI Gold Approved Training Partner in the program’s Internet portal.
