Mile2 recommends that post-secondary partners provide college credit to students with existing Mile2 certifications so that those students can shorten their length of study.
Mile2 requires that partners use instructors who are certified in the Mile2 course(s) they teach. Certified instructors have the knowledge and skills to teach the subject. They also have a good understanding of the exam and can therefore prepare students for it better.

Partners that do not meet certain requirements may have their partner agreement cancelled and benefits revoked.
