Certifying Bodies

In the iSAQB training scheme the formal and organisational separation between training and examination providers is prescribed. This ensures a maximum of quality and transparency of the certifications.

In the following you will find a list of neutral certification bodies (examination providers) that are recognized by the iSAQB for CPSA exams. All information on examination prices, which may be different for each region or country, can be found on the respective websites of the certification bodies.
