    ISTQB/ASTQB online exam availability

    by Randy Rice -

    Update as of Monday, April 27th, 2020:

    Great news!

    According to the e-mail sent out Friday from ASTQB:

    "Due to the stay-at-home orders associated with the COVID-19 crisis, ISTQB is allowing for online, remote-proctored ISTQB exams beginning April 27th (Brussels, Belgium time), which translates to 6:00 p.m. EDT this Sunday, April 26th in the U.S.

    This is a pilot program that runs through October 23rd at  6:00 p.m. EDT. That means you must have not only registered but actually taken your online exam by that date and time.

    There are strict security guidelines associated with the online version of the exam, so be sure to review the ISTQB Online Exams FAQ and technical requirements on the AT*SQA website before taking the exam.

    If you have already purchased a voucher for an exam center, don't worry, you will be able to switch to an online exam, but you must cancel your testing center exam first. Remember to cancel your scheduled testing center exam 72 hours in advance of its date/time or you will incur a $75 fee.

    Keep in mind that the earliest you can register for an online ISTQB exam is 6:00 p.m. EDT on Sunday, so no action is required at this moment.

    If you have questions, the ASTQB and AT*SQA support teams will be happy to help with any questions on Monday during normal business hours."

    The details for online exams are now on the AT*SQA website. There is a link at the top of the home page (https://atsqa.org) which explains the requirements and details.

    The registration process is described at https://atsqa.org/istqb-exam-registration

    If you have purchased a course that includes exams, and are ready for the voucher, just let me know and I will send it to you. If you need to purchase an exam, you can do that through me, or directly through the Kryterion web site as the last step in your registration.

    Please feel free to ask me any further questions.
