  • Do I have to look for a training provider and a certification body if I’m interested in the CPRE certificate?

    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.
