Get Reimbursed for ISTQB Exams or Training

Get ISTQB Exams or Training Free with Reimbursement Programs

One of the best reasons to take your ISTQB exams through ASTQB is that we are the official United States representative of ISTQB. We work with U.S. federal and state agencies to make our exams eligible for reimbursement.

For example, if you are located in Ohio, did you know your company may be eligible for up to $2,000/employee in reimbursement for ASTQB's exams and the training needed to prepare for them? It's part of their TechCred initiative - you can learn more about TechCred here. Your company can apply every quarter!

If you aren't in Ohio, we recommend that you check with your state's department of workforce development, as many states have training or exam grants for upskilling and retraining for new jobs. Important: If you don't see ASTQB / ISTQB on your state's list, it's usually just a matter of asking. Your state will then check with us, ASTQB, and we will provide the required information about ASTQB and ISTQB certification to make it eligible.

If you are a U.S. veteran, the VA has offered benefits for ASTQB exams for years. Here are some of the exams offered through ASTQB that are approved by the VA for reimbursement:
  • ISTQB Foundation Level
  • ISTQB Agile Testing
  • ISTQB Security Testing
  • ISTQB Technical Test Analyst
  • ISTQB Test Analyst
  • ISTQB Test Automation Engineering
  • ISTQB Test Manager 
  • ISTQB Model-Based Testing
  • ISTQB Performance Testing
  • ASTQB Mobile Testing
Contact your state or federal agency today to ask about tech training and/or exam reimbursement because many have specific application deadlines. Have them contact us at ASTQB if they have any questions.
