  course
- for online courses, you will receive a voucher to use for any online exam
- you will have the opportunity to retake the exam, see below

Free re-take of the exam if you did not pass your exam after the course
Since SSTB has done the accreditation of the training providers, we have confidence that they are conducting the course professionally and with the right content; there are thus conditions for you to pass the subsequent exam.

- Registration for new exam is done within 3 months after your failed exam
- Applies to courses in classroom and online
- Course and exam booked at the same time
- The training provider is ISTQB-accredited through SSTB for the course on which the exam is based

- The offer is valid for one re-exam only

Registration for the re-exam is done here. If your registration is ok, you will receive a voucher code by email to use as payment when you register for your re-exam.

The training providers may also have partners who administer their courses.

The future of software testing: the role of the tester in an AI-driven world

Software testing is undergoing a revolutionary change with artificial intelligence (AI) at the forefront. Gone are the days when AI was just a future concept. Today, it is a dynamic force leading to a new chapter in software development.
AI introduces new ways and tools that can improve testing in many ways such as bug prediction which allows the tester to focus on other, more important testing tasks.
The ISTQB AI Testing Certification is a gateway to the future of software testing. It covers testing systems that contain AI, but also how to use AI in your testing

There are also references to the Syllabus, Sample Exam, link to ISTQB/SSTB exam, but also a proposal for ISTQB course

Why choose training provider and a course that is accredited by ISTQB?

An ISTQB accredited training provider is someone who has extensive knowledge and experience in testing and can provide additional insight into test terminology and syllabus content to facilitate the achievement of ISTQB certification.
A course from an ISTQB-accredited training provider guarantees that the content covers all sections and parts according to the Syllabus and is therefore a good basis for your ISTQB examinations. The teacher is also certified, has knowledge of the current course and also has pedagogical skills.

2012

At the ISTQB® General Assembly meeting in October 2012, the 2012 ISTQB® Advanced Level was approved for release.

The release consists of an overview document plus 3 separate, distinct syllabi for Advanced Test Manager, Advanced Test Analyst and Advanced Technical Test Analyst.

In line with the scoping and clearer organization previously announced, the length of the training for each syllabus has been rationalized as follows:

  • Advanced Test Manager – 5 Days
  • Advanced Test Analyst – 4 Days
  • Advanced Technical Test Analyst – 3 Days

As there are updates of some testing terms there is a connection to the new Glossary 2.2

 

To ensure a smooth transition between the 2007 version and 2012 version, there will be a transition period during which the 2007 version will be phased out.

 

For a complete description of the release se ISTQB home page

 

SSTB is now working with translation those syllabi to Swedish. Release will be during spring 2013

 

Syllabi for Advanced Level 2012 are available here

SSTB launches new bilingual website, with a more modern design and further functions. The website now has an integrated function for applications and registrations. 

 

There has long been a need for an English website and we are very glad to now be able to keep our non-Swedish speaking testers updated about our activities and the possibilities to get certified by SSTB. In order to simplify the administration the list with examination dates and the forms for application and registration are placed only on the Swedish site, linked from the English pages. 

 

We hope that you will find the website informative and easy to navigate. We are also happy to receive your ideas for development via kontakt@sstb.se.
