the interpretation of the ISO 9712:2005

My question is related to the interpretation of the ISO 9712:2005
“5.2 Certification body

5.2.1 The certification body shall conform to the requirements of ISO/IEC 17024. It should have no direct involvement in training of NDT personnel and be recognized by the NDT community or the ISO member body of the country concerned”

Please guide me about the following question with reference to the interpretation of ISO 9712

1. Does it mean that the certification body must be separate for the NDT training organization?
2. Does it mean that the same organization provide this both function if establish proper firewalls between in certification body and NDT training organization?
3. Does it mean that the organization provides NDT training and exam function but for both function they use separate deportment of the same organization?
4. Does it mean that the organization provide NDT training, exam and accreditation function but for each function they use separate deportment of the same organization?
