CREST Approved Training Provider Scheme

About the CREST Approved Training Provider Scheme
CREST approves training providers to help professionals who are working towards certain qualifications, or those who would like to acquire, maintain or extend their knowledge and capability.

CREST also assesses the content of courses in Intrusion Analysis/Forensics, Penetration Testing and Threat Intelligence against the frameworks for the CREST qualifications. In this way, anyone attending an accredited training course will know, in advance, how the content of that course will improve their skills and, in some cases, advance capability against the requirements of a specific CREST qualification that they seek. You will find a list of CREST Approved Training Providers courses here.

How it works

Membership must be renewed on an annual basis, with a full application re-submitted every 3 years. The annual renewal is a simplified company questionnaire with confirmation that the information previously supplied has not changed.
Training Provider process 1

If an exam syllabus is changed by CREST then all training providers will be informed.  If the training provider’s accredited modules are for one of the changed or updated exam syllabus areas the training provider will need to re-submit its updated training modules by the next annual membership renewal in order for it to remain as an accredited module on the CREST website.
Training Provider process 2

There is an application fee of £500 + VAT to become an Approved Training Provider which is payable on application submission.  This fee is a one-off charge.

The Annual Membership fee, payable on successful company membership application, is £2,000 + VAT and this fee is subject to review annually.

There is no fee for module submission thereafter and modules can be submitted at any time during a Provider’s membership.
