The IELTS test is delivered by local test centers, requiring a commitment to the scheduling and administration of the test in a standardized and secure environment, and the local marketing of the service.

Key institutions that IELTS USA works with include university language centers and testing centers, colleges and community colleges. Institutions must be accredited, with sound financial status and have access to qualified, experienced ESL professionals.
