For your planning purposes, please note that our ISTQB testing centers will soon make the earliest exam dates 3 weeks in the future. This is designed to provide some staffing flexibility as they work through the COVID-19 / coronavirus situation.
The good news is that you have lots of flexibility thanks to our unique ISTQB voucher system from our official ISTQB exam provider, AT*SQA:
You have up to 365 days to schedule your initial exam date when you purchase an exam voucher.
Once you have scheduled your exam, you may reschedule it with no additional fee so long as you do so at least 72 hours before the exam.
You may reschedule your exam multiple times. There is no additional fee so long as you do so each time at least 72 hours before the exam.
If you are within 72 hours of your exam, the $75 change fee can only be waived by Kryterion/Webassessor because they have to pay for the employees that staff the testing centers. This requires a doctor's note stating that you could not sit for the exam. In that case, contact Kryterion via the Kryterion Test Taker Support Area. Do not contact AT*SQA or ASTQB in this case, as the waiver must be given by Kryterion.
Prefer a group exam in your location? If you have several individuals who can take their exams at the same time in the same location, you may be eligible for an on-site exam. The exams can be any combination of foundation, specialty, advanced or expert certifications. Contact the AT*SQA Support Team for the criteria and details.
