What is ISTQB Advanced Test Manager Training?

The ISTQB Advanced Test Manager course extends the broad understanding of testing acquired at Foundation Level to enable the role of Test Manager to be performed. 

This five day tutor-led course includes lectures, exercises and practical work, as well as exam preparation. The examination is held at an agreed later date, so allowing adequate time for revision. It is fully-accredited by UKTB on behalf of ISTQB and has been rated SFIAplus level 5 by the BCS.

We also provide private and in-company ISTQB Advanced Test Manager courses. Call +44 (0)1273 622272 to discuss.

The Exam:

To qualify as an internationally-recognized Certified Advanced Level Test Manager and be issued with an ISTQB® Advanced Level Certificate, delegates must successfully pass the exam administered by the relevant National Board or Examination Provider. The exam lasts three hours (or 225 minutes for candidates taking exams that are not in their native language) and consists of 65 multiple choice questions. The exam is ‘closed book’ (i.e. no notes or books are allowed into the examination room) and the pass mark is 65%.

Next steps

The Advanced Level establishes a platform from which further skills and knowledge may be acquired at the Expert Level. Holders of the Certified Tester Advanced Level Test Manager qualification will be eligible to continue on to Expert level qualifications, such as Test Management and Improving the Test Process. More details to follow when available. Holders of the Certified Tester Advanced Level Test Manager qualification may also wish to consider the two other Advanced Level qualifications, Test Analyst and Technical Test Analyst.
