What is a Bluetooth Qualification Consultant?
Bluetooth® Qualification Consultants are independent consultants who have met certain requirements and are permitted to call themselves “Bluetooth Qualification Consultants” when they assist members with submission of their products for qualification. Members may, but are not required to, engage Bluetooth Qualification Consultants to provide qualification-related services.
Bluetooth SIG has retired the Bluetooth Qualification Expert program, and use of the term “Bluetooth Qualification Expert” is not permitted. All qualified participants in the new program will be referred to as “Bluetooth Qualification Consultants,” and can only use the Bluetooth trademark to refer to themselves as a “Bluetooth Qualification Consultant” if they satisfy and comply with all program requirements.

Each Bluetooth Qualification Consultant must satisfy all program requirements, including passing an exam designed to assess their understanding of the Bluetooth Qualification Process.
Bluetooth Qualification Consultants are not employed by or representatives of Bluetooth SIG. Each member who decides to engage a Bluetooth Qualification Consultant is responsible for establishing the terms of its relationship with the Bluetooth Qualification Consultant, including with respect to payment and scope of services. Examples of services that a Bluetooth Qualification Consultant might provide are:
- Checking products against qualification requirements (including testing requirements)
- Reviewing product test reports
- Assisting members with completing the qualification process, including product listings
