Which of the two CTFL exams should I choose? CTFL 2018 or CTFL 4.0?
First, both are equivalent. They are valid ffor the future. An ISTQB crtificate is lifelong

Our recommendation is that if you plan to take your exam in the next few weeks (May-June 2023), you should choose CTFL 2018.
- If you have started your preparations for CTFL 2018,  applied for or taken a course, you should also        take your exam for CTFL 2018.
- If you are planning to take a course, then you should choose the accredited training provider that
  suits you best regardless of 2018 or 4.0. There are, and will be, experienced trainer for both.
- If you want to start studying by yourself, CTFL 4.0 maybe the best

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.

In our previous range of paper-based exams for ISTQB Foundation and Advanced Level SSTB can now also offer e-exam at Foundation Level.


SSTB's e-exams are conducted on the same basis as our paper-based exams, the same terms and conditions apply, the difference is how the candidate is conducting the exam and that you can get your result immediately after completing the exam.


An e-exam is an exam where the candidate, instead of answering on paper, conducts the exam on a computer, in this case an iPAD. Upon completion of the exam, the final result (number of points achieved) is presented at once and the candidate will later get their certificates sent by mail in the same way as the paper exam.


SSTB's e-exams impose no other requirements in place, local and other conditions than those of our paper exams. It is even possible to perform the paper-based exam and e-exam at the same occasion.

Are you, as a training provider or exam coordinator, interested in organizing an e-exam please contact SSTB.
