Become an Accredited Training Center

EC-Council takes partnering seriously. We expect mutual investment for each other’s success. Please take a few moments to read through the benefits and requirements of the programs that interest you. The ATC partners are expected to meet and maintain specific requirements for their partnering category and level of participation.

The courses, marketing, enablement and relationship benefits vary by level of partnership. Additionally, Partners are expected to demonstrate expertise in one or more e- Business technologies.

Once you have decided to apply to become an ATC, please take the time to completely fill out the ATC application. The Partner Programs team will then review the application and follow up with you if more detail is needed. We will notify you of the status of your application within 21 business days.

If you choose to join the EC-Council ATP program, there are a few simple steps to jump through:

  • Download the ATC Membership Form.
  • Send the entire original document together with payment to EC-Council’s HQ or EC-Council’s EMEA office.
  • Alternatively, you can pay by credit card here.
  • Membership costs USD500.00 for the first location and USD400.00 for each additional location under the same ownership. Renewals cost USD250.00 per annum.
  • Regardless of payment method, the original agreement needs to be mailed to EC-Council’s HQ or EC-Council’s EMEA office.
  • Upon receipt and approval, you will receive a welcome kit with a wall plaque and other collateral.
  • The agreement expires after a term of one year and is subject to renewal upon prompt payment of the renewal fee
  • As EC-Council has implemented a calendar system for renewals, all new applications which do not fall in January or July will need to include the transitory renewal payment of USD20.00 per month to bring the renewal period to January or July (whichever comes sooner).

Example 1

Assuming today is 15th August 2009 and the new application is approved on 1st September 2009, the new ATC will pay USD500.00 plus USD20.00 per month for the months September 2009 till December 2009.

= USD500.00 + (USD20.00 x 4 months)

= USD500.00 + USD80.00

= USD580.00

Subsequently, on 1st January of each calendar year, ATC will pay the full renewal fee of USD250.00

Example 2

Assuming today is 15th April 2009 and the new application is approved on 1st May 2009, the new ATC will pay USD500.00 plus USD20.00 per month for the months May 2009 till June 2009.

= USD500.00 + (USD20.00 x 2 months)

= USD500.00 + USD40.00

= USD540.00

Subsequently, on 1st July of each calendar year, ATC will pay the full renewal fee of USD250.00
