Delegates will be provided with a Pearson VUE exam voucher one week prior to course commencement. This enables you to book and sit your exam at your local Pearson VUE testing centre at a time and date convenient to you.  Pearson VUE centres are worldwide, and you will be able to choose the closest testing centre to you. You then go along to the test centre with your photo ID at the specified date and time and you will then take an electronic exam. Your exam voucher will have an expiration date and your exam must be sat before this date as these vouchers cannot be extended.

Exam format

To receive Advanced Level certification in the module “Agile Technical Test Analyst”, candidates must hold a valid Certified Tester Foundation Level certificate and Certified Agile Foundation Extension certificate:

  • 40 multiple choice questions, which contain a list of possible answers
  • Duration of 90 minutes (or 113 minutes for candidates taking examinations that are not in their native language)
  • A candidate must score at least 65% to pass (26/40)
  • Exam is included in the price

The ISTQB Certified Agile Technical Tester Advanced level is principally aimed at test practitioners who have achieved an advanced point in their careers in software testing and are expecting to be actively involved in agile teams and technical testing, including requirements engineering, test automation and deployment and delivery, and who want to increase their knowledge and skills beyond the levels covered by the Foundation and Intermediate qualifications. This includes people in roles such as testers, test analysts, test engineers, test consultants, test managers, user acceptance testers and software developers. This Advanced Level qualification is also appropriate for anyone who wants a deeper understanding of software testing, such as project managers, quality managers, software development managers, business analysts and management consultants.

To receive Advanced Level certification in the module “Agile Technical Test Analyst”, candidates must hold a valid Certified Tester Foundation Level certificate and Certified Agile Foundation Extension certificate. It is also suggested that candidates have a minimum of 2 years testing experience. 

Note that it is recommended that you attend an accredited training course run by an accredited training provider, as the overall exam pass rates are notably higher for candidates attending such courses.
