In order to take an ISTQB Advanced level certification exam, it is necessary to already have the CTFL certificate and to “satisfy the Exam Board which examines them that they have sufficient practical experience to be considered Advanced Level qualified“.

The CTFL certificate is not a pre-requisite for attending this training course. It is, however, essential that attendees have either obtained it or, at least, have undergone an ISTQB-accredited Foundation level training course. It is further recommended that delegates also have:

  • at least one year’s practical experience of software testing;
  • at least a theoretical understanding and preferably some practical experience of basic programming.
