IREB supports recognized training providers in the following ways:
On receiving recognition from IREB, training providers commit themselves to offering training courses that are in line with the IREB syllabi and to only appointing CPRE-certified trainers. The mutual obligations between IREB and a training provider are stipulated by contract.
The contract is valid for one year (from 01 January to 31 December). Depending on the number of training courses conducted per year, a fee is to be paid for IREB-recognition:
For further information see the sample contract for training providers.
If you have decided to apply for recognition from IREB as a training provider, please do the following:
After your application form has been checked, you will receive the contract for mutual signing via e-mail.
The concept of the CPRE certification follows the DIN EN ISO/IEC 17024:2012 standard, which stipulate the strict separation of training and certification, thus avoiding conflicts of interest. CPRE training providers and CPRE certification bodies are personally and organizationally independent organizations.
However, this does not mean that the person who wants to obtain the CPRE certificate must find both a provider of the training as well as a certification body that finally conducts the exam and issues the certificate.
Almost all CPRE training providers offer a full service:
Booking a training course covers the training itself and the organization of the exam, which is conducted by an independent certifier.
So the participant has exactly one contact for the complete CPRE certificate package.
