What types of partnership are there?
IBEX Ed offers different types of partnership levels dependent on what your goals and current status are.
Reseller partners relationships are aimed at organizations that want to deliver high-quality training as an offering but do not need a direct relationship with an examining institute or the costs and overheads that are associated with the relationship. As an IBEX Ed reseller, the partners will only be able to sell official IBEX Ed courses that are run by an approved IBEX Ed sponsored trainer, using IBEX Ed materials and having the exams administered through an IBEX Ed authorized exam administrator.
Reseller partners will have to market all associated courses as provided in association with IBEX Ed and can use the training powered by the IBEX Ed logo and accredited IBEX Ed reseller logo. Resellers will not be allowed to use the exam institutes, scheme providers, or official course logos under this scheme relationship.
Education partner relationships are aimed at organizations that want to be able to market their courses as their own accredited organization, use the accredited affiliate designation within their marketing. An education partner will have a direct relationship with an EI and can book their own exams via their respective EI, however, all exam billing, sponsorship of trainers, and management of the EI will come under IBEX Ed as the primary ATO.
The education partner relationship, gives the partner greater control over how they can market their courses, however comes with associated EI and scheme owner fees. Education partners will have full access to all fully branded courseware that they are accredited to use from IBEX Ed.
ATO Partner relationships are aimed at established training and consulting organizations that want to have full control over their training environment, and leverage on lower direct billing exam prices for their training courses.

The ATO partner will have full control over their own trainers, proctors, and administrators and will work from their own internal QMS. With a direct relationship with the EIâ€™s the ATO partner can use the ATO logos and not have to reference IBEX Ed in their marketing materials. This option gives the partner the most control, however comes with the greatest cost.

This is done so the instructor will always know how the course and manual are structured; this makes it easy for trainers to cross multiple course titles and subjects.

The manuals also include classroom exercises; all foundation courses also have a section called ‘buzz exercises’, which are short, attention focusing activities to drive home key messages.
