SSTB can now offer online exams

SSTB can now offer online exams at ISTQB Foundation Level (CTFL2018).  This means that you can conduct your exam remotely, at home or in a place where you can work individually.
You use your laptop or desktop to read and answer the exam questions and the proctor instructs and monitors via your webcam.  The exam time is the same as exam in a classroom (onsite).  The difference is that there are limitations in the use of assistive devices; no aids are allowed in SSTB's online examinations.

  • In SSTB's online exams, the proctor does not have access to your computer and thus cannot see or change anything in his own way, except for your screen.
  • In SSTB's online examinations you can communicate with the exam guard in Swedish or English.

  Some basic requirements

  • You should have a laptop or desktop with webcam and microphone
  • Chrome should be installed as a browser
  • You should be able to read, edit and save Word documents (.docx)
  • You should be alone in a room with a closed door
  • Your desk should be empty except for the computer equipment
  • Other tools are not allowed

Is Model-Based Testing right for you?

Model-based testing is an innovative testing approach to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the test process. A model-based tester on a project uses models to drive test analysis and design, and keeps advantage of the models for other testing activities, such as test implementation and reporting.

ISTQB Model-based Tester certification complements the core foundation level as a specialist module. It provides a practical and easy entry to the MBT approach.

News

2018 > 09

As a continuation of previous news, where the ISTQB Syllabus was presented, SSTB can now offer Examination for FL 2018 in Swedish and English in parallel with FL 2011.
The exam is the same as for today's Foundation Level, FL 2011. 40 questions, 26 pints for pass. One hour plus 15 minutes extra for non-native speakers. One difference is that some questions may be "choose two out of five options".
SSTB will continue to offer exams for FL 2011 in parallel with FL 2018. After 2019-06-04, exams for FL 2011 in English is not possible, and after 2019-11-04 the same in Swedish. After these dates, only FL 2018 is offered.
Since an ISTQB certificate is lifelong and both FL 2011 and FL 2018 are equivalent, there is no need to renew your certificate in the belief that it has become too old. It still has the same value in combination with professional activities.
You can aplly for exam via the calendar or, if open exam here.
 
Currently we have a Syllabus in English for FL 2018 länk and accredited courses with English material will soon be offered by accredited training providers.
