Becoming an AXELOS Consulting Partner

The AXELOS Consulting Partner (ACP) service connects consultants with the customers who will benefit from their expertise in AXELOS best practice. ACPs enjoy increased market recognition, enhanced service quality, and a corresponding improvement in the performance of their consultancy.

The ACP service offers:

  • endorsement of the high quality of your consultancy
  • association with globally-recognized qualifications
  • use of selected intellectual property from the AXELOS portfolio
  • license to perform and award AXELOS maturity model assessments and certifications (subject to a separate licence)
  • access to AXELOS’ marketing resources
  • a listing on the AXELOS website as a certified partner.

ACP Membership levels

AXELOS has introduced three ACP membership levels to allow our partners to select the benefits that work for them.


Our Essential level membership is ideal for new consultancies looking to strengthen their offering by being fully endorsed to use the AXELOS best practice frameworks and methodologies.


Our Premium level membership is perfect for consultancies who already offer AXELOS-endorsed maturity assessments or wish to strengthen their offering by making these a more regular part of their services.


Our Elite members enjoy the full range of AXELOS Consulting Partner privileges, designed to help you do your job as easily and effectively as possible, and create game-changing results for your clients.
