How do I take an ISTQB Certified Tester exam after taking one of RBCS' software test e-learning courses?

Electronic exam - The Foundation Level and Advanced Level exams can be taken electronically through test centers. For more information visit the ASTQB Electronic Exams page for taking exams through the Kryterion Test Center or visit the ISEB Certification page for taking exams through the Prometric Test Center.

Onsite group exam - If you have a group of people taking an exam, you can arrange through the ASTQB (American Software Testing Qualifications Board) or CSTB (Canadian Software Testing Board) to have them send a proctor to administer an onsite exam for the group. For more information visit the ASTQB Onsite Company Exams page or the CSTB Exams page.

Public course exam - An exam is given on the last day of each RBCS live ISTQB Certified Tester course. If you have taken the e-learning course or have chosen to self study, you can still arrange with the ASTQB or CSTB to take the exam at the end of a public software testing training course. It doesn't even have to be the same exam that the course attendees are taking. For example, you could take the Advanced Test Manager exam while the course attendees are taking the Foundation Level exam. For more information visit the ASTQB Scheduled Public Exams page or the CSTB Exams page.

Note: If you are taking an Advanced Level exam for the first time, the ASTQB requires you to be pre-qualified before you take the Advanced Level exam. You will need to work with them directly to get pre-qualified prior to the start of the course. For more information visit the ASTQB Exam Info page.

For more information on ISTQB Certification in the United States visit http://www.astqb.org/ or in Canada visit http://www.cstb.ca/. For information for countries other than the United States and Canada check with your governing board. Not sure if your country has a governing board? Visit the ISTQB at http://www.istqb.org/.
