Build Your Usability Testing Skills and Career Opportunities. Now VA Approved.

What's Popular? Usability Testing Certification.

Usability Testing certification continues to be one of the more popular choices by testers.  Not only is usability testing in demand, but you've probably been frustrated with poor usability yourself - so you want to be part of the solution!

We are pleased to announce that we have received official notice that ASTQB's ISTQB Usability Testing certification is now approved for Veterans Administration benefits, along with the many other ASTQB certifications!

If you want to broaden your knowledge of usability testing – and your career opportunities – ISTQB Usability Testing Certification is an easy choice. It's a must-have for anyone who wishes to start a specialist career in usability testing. This certification is also very helpful for anyone involved in usability engineering who wishes to understand usability testing.

To learn more, we recommend our free webinar, "Usability Testing in a Nutshell." This webinar was created as we introduced the certification through ASTQB, but is just as valid now that ISTQB has adopted it. As is true with all important ISTQB certifications, you can take your exam through ASTQB and our official ISTQB exam provider, AT*SQA. Doing so will allow you to appear on the Official U.S. List of Certified Testers when you pass.

Exam Scheduling and Rescheduling

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.
  • Kryterion will also post notices in their Kryterion Test Taker Support Area if an area has had a widespread test center closure that requires a no-cost reschedule. 
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.
