Pre-Qualification for the Advanced Certification Exam
In order to be eligible to take any of the Certified Tester—Advanced Level (CTAL) exams, potential examinees must:
- Submit proof of Certified Tester—Foundation Level (CTFL) certification
- Establish an account in the ASTQB WebAssessor
- While ASTQB no longer requires students to document a minimum of 3 years’ experience, it is still strongly recommended that students have relevant experience and an understanding of the Advanced level learning objectives.
CTAL exams are not given at the end of class. After pre-qualification is completed, students receive an ASTQB exam voucher good for one year to use at an exam center of their choice.
