If you wish to take a Foundation Level Extension – Agile Tester exam, after creating your account, contact ASTQB Headquarters at info@astqb.org so we can verify the CTFL certification and then allow access to the Agile exam. Send us your name as it appears on your ASTQB CTFL certificate. (If your CTFL is not from ASTQB, then you must send a copy of your CTFL certificate.)

If you wish to take an Advanced Level exam after creating your account, you must first submit proof of CTFL certification and a resume and/or employer verification of 3 years experience to info@astqb.org. In the cover email, the examinee must state that the information contained in the resume or employer verification is accurate and complete to the best of his/her ability.

Once we receive your documentation, you will receive an email that your qualification has been accepted and you can now log back in, follow the above instructions and go to “Register for an Examination”.
