Foundation Level Agile Tester Extension

For Agile exams, your code will be withheld until we can confirm that you have your Foundation Level certificate. If you wrote your exam with the CSTB, you do not need to do anything. We will check our records and issue the code to you immediately after confirming. If you wrote your ISTQB Foundation Level with another board, please reply to your receipt with a copy of your certificate.

Advanced (CTAL)

For Advanced Exams (Test Manager, Test Analyst and Technical Test Analyst), your code will be held back while  we confirm that you have been approved to write CTAL exams. If you have not been approved, please visit our qualification page here. If you have previously been approved, please allow up to 5 days (usually less) for your code to arrive by e-mail.
