Become a training partner

LPI, as a vendor-independent organization, does not have an "official" single method of test preparation. We encourage publishers, schools and training centers to work together within the community to encourage choice, flexibility and innovation. Nevertheless, we also encourage the development of traditional training programs through our LPI Approved Training Partners (LPI-ATP) and LPI Approved Academic Partners (LPI-AAP).

LPI Approved Training Partner (LPI-ATP) and LPI Approved Academic Partner Program (LPI-AAP)

The LPI-ATP and LPI-AAP 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 training materials, LPI certified instructors, and adherence to LPI's Training and Academic Code of Ethics.

In countries where we have Regional Partners, our program is run by our local Regional Partners.

Training organization requirements

  1. Use approved training materials where required by the local LPI Regional Partner. Please contact your regional affiliate for details.
  2. Use LPI approved instructors or provide proof of professional training as a computer instructor. Ask about our "Train the Trainer" support.
  3. In classroom learning, there will be at least one instructor (contractor or employee) in the organization that is certified at each LPI level for which they are providing training.
  4. Each training organization will be allowed some flexibility and ramp up time on the TOTAL number of certified individuals required based on organization size and market share, which will be decided on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of LPI.
