  • Holders of the CTAL-TTA 3.0 and any previous versions continue to hold a valid certification.

ISTQB® President Olivier Denoo stated:

"The ISTQB® is proud to release a major update to Advanced Level Technical Test Analyst (CTAL-TTA).

This update was required in order to address important and relevant issues in the 2019 version reported by Member Boards and other stakeholders.

A timely response was required to protect the reputation of ISTQB® and to improve the acceptance of the CTAL-TTA syllabus in the testing community.

Therefore, the Advanced and Expert Level Working Group has spared no effort to make the necessary changes to make this syllabus an even better and even stronger international reference.

I would like to thank the entire team for having been able to make these corrections quickly and effectively in these times troubled by the health crisis.

I hope that you will immediately start using these updated materials as part of the career development programs in your organizations to accelerate your technical testing skills.

I wish you all a happy reading. Stay tuned and take care..."

Chair of ISTQB® Marketing Working Group Sebastian Małyska, noted:

"Our organization is never giving up on our journey to quality. We are committed to the QA community and always open for constructive feedback. If this occurs we react. Never forgetting the need for business continuity which is very important for our partners and those aiming for certification."

Thank you to all who have supported the update including Mette Bruhn-Pedersen (ISTQB Advanced & Expert Level Working Group Chair), Armin Born, Adam Roman, Christian Graf, Stuart Reid (Authors) and many others from Exam & Marketing Work Groups.

ISTQB® releases Certified Tester Advanced Level Agile Test Leadership at Scale - 2nd Increment - v0.4 (CTAL-ATLaS) https://www.istqb.org/news/news/2021/1083-istqb-releases-certified-tester-advanced-level-agile-test-leadership-at-scale-2nd-increment-v0-4-ctal-atlas.html https://www.istqb.org/news/news/2021/1083-istqb-releases-certified-tester-advanced-level-agile-test-leadership-at-scale-2nd-increment-v0-4-ctal-atlas.html

ISTQB® has released the 2nd increment of the Advanced Level (CTAL) Agile Test Leadership at Scale (ATLaS) version 0.4. This is the second of the six increments planned in the CTAL-ATLaS certification. CTAL-ATLaS is an “Agile” module within the ISTQB® Certified Tester Scheme and an in-demand next step after the ISTQB® Certified Tester Foundation Level (CTFL) and ISTQB® Certified Tester Foundation Level Agile Tester (CTFL-AT).

The release consists of the first (Quality Assistance) and second (Improve Quality and Flow in a Value-Driven Organization) chapters of the ISTQB® Advanced Level Agile Test Leadership at Scale syllabus (v0.4), body of knowledge (v0.4) and sample exam questions and answers (v0.4).

Because of the incremental model the Release Notes will not be available until the very end of development of the complete ATLaS product.

This is the first time that ISTQB® has developed and released a certification incrementally. According to Agile principles, iterations ensure better quality through early feedback and continuous improvement.

When will the complete CTAL-ATLaS certification be ready?

We are planning to have it available by Q4 2022 (current estimation).

More information can be found in the CTAL-ATLaS FAQ section.

Product Owner of the CTAL-ATLaS v0.4 Mette Bruhn-Pedersen, said:

"With the modern demand for business agility there is an even greater need for accelerated quality. This is not achievable if all responsibility for quality remains in individual teams or specific roles such as testers. Therefore, test management becomes quality management and organizations need to adopt lean principles across the organization as well as within delivery teams. This changes the role of quality assurance and test professionals to be closer to agile test leadership and to fostering a quality culture and mindset.

The ISTQB® is offering a new certification on Advanced level to help people build the competencies needed to effectively contribute to such demanding business environments. The certification is called Agile Test Leadership at Scale (ATLaS) and the second chapter is now available for download on ISTQB®’s website.

In this second chapter you will learn the need to Improve Quality and Flow in a Value-Driven Organization. The certification looks at what Value Stream Mapping is and the skills that you need to support this. It supports implementing Value Stream Mapping as a key tool to improving process flow and therefore product or service quality. It explores the analysis of value streams from a quality and testing perspective. This chapter covers basic visualization techniques, typical steps in value stream mapping, and how to identify non-value adding activities in the form of the 8 different types of waste.

Implementing these techniques in your organization brings value by:

  • Identifying and removing waste
  • Improving the efficiency of your value driven processes
  • Aligning cross functional teams on business objectives and customer satisfaction

By releasing the second chapter the ISTQB® continues the agile approach to certification adopted in the first chapter (see link to chapter 1 news). We will continue to release each chapter as it is developed so that member boards can disseminate this to their customers to gain interest; for training providers to start building courseware and so that exam providers can build exams. We also want to gain early feedback directly from our customers to help us tailor this certification to market demands.

This is a new way of releasing for the ISTQB®, using an iterative method building assets up until the final full launch when all materials, including exams will be ready. You will also see a new look syllabus format which focuses on the learnings you will gain, supported by a Body of Knowledge giving you rich examples and walking you through each learning objective in detail.

The Agile Test Leadership at Scale qualification is aimed at people who work in an organization which is pursuing agility at scale or business agility and already have a basic understanding of agile and agile testing. The ISTQB® Foundation Level certificate and Foundation Level Agile Tester certificate are pre-requisites for taking the Advanced Level Agile Test Leadership at Scale certification exam."

ISTQB® President Olivier Denoo added:

"The ISTQB® is proud to release the next chapter of our new Advanced Level certification, Agile Test Leadership at Scale.

While Agile methods are spreading fast and becoming the new norm in software development and testing, the time has come to scale up and focus on a new dimension: Agility at Scale.

More than just isolated projects, organizations are facing challenges to align Agility across their whole business. Many different approaches have already been adopted by industry such as SAFe® and Spotify.

Complementing our core Foundation and Agile Tester certifications, the Advanced Level Agile Test Leadership at Scale qualification is approach-and-methods-agnostic. It is aimed at people who work in an organization which is pursuing agility at scale or business agility. In this first chapter you will learn the need to foster a value-driven quality mindset and culture.

It is also important to notice that for the first time, an ISTQB® certification is being released in several parts. Not only is this a great opportunity for our dedicated team to "walk the talk", but also a new approach to better streamline the efforts within our ecosystem. By publishing the certification in increments member boards, training providers and exam providers have the opportunity to iteratively localize materials, design courseware, and create exam questions so everyone is ready when the full certification is launched.

I hope that you will immediately start using these materials as part of the career development programs in your organizations to accelerate your business agility transformations.

I wish you all happy reading. Stay tuned and take care..."

Chair of ISTQB® Marketing Working Group Sebastian Małyska, noted:

"All of us would like to interact with a quality driven organization as a team member or stakeholder or as a customer. On the way there we need to learn how to identify and eliminate the waste. The 2nd chapter would definitely help you gain those skills and knowledge."

Thank you to all who have supported the update including Michael Pilaeten (Working Group Chair); Mette Bruhn-Pedersen (Product Owner); Jean-Luc Cossi, Richard Green, Michael Heller, Leanne Howard, Ebbe Munk, Francisca Cano Ortiz, Samuel Ouko, Tal Pe’er, Murian Song, Marcelo Chanez, Ilia Kulakov, Peter Jetter and Salinda Wickramasinghe (Authors) and Loyde Mitchell and many other from long reviewer list (incl. into syllabus), Exam & Marketing Work Groups.

“With the increasing demand for business agility there is an even greater need for accelerated quality. This is not achievable if all responsibility for quality remains in the individual teams or specific roles, such as testers. Therefore, test management becomes quality management and organizations need to adopt quality assistance across the organization as well as within delivery teams. This changes the role of quality assurance and test professionals to be closer to agile test leadership and to fostering a quality culture and mindset.

ISTQB® will offer a new certification at Advanced Level to help people build the competencies needed to effectively contribute to such demanding business environments. The certification is called Agile Test Leadership at Scale (ATLaS) and the first increment is now available for download on ISTQB®’s website.

In the first chapter you will learn the need to foster a value-driven quality mindset and culture. The certification looks at what Quality Assistance is and the skills that you need. It supports understanding quality assistance as an approach to quality management. It provides examples for the coaching, facilitation, training and change management skills required for quality assistance. Plus uses given quality related problems to illustrate how quality assistance uses a combination of the four important skills.

Using Quality Assistance with your organization brings value by:

  • Providing support in changing the mindset and culture to one that scales business agility
  • Enhancing everyone’s responsibility for quality
  • Giving test leaders and people in other leadership roles new skills to accelerate quality

ISTQB® will be releasing each increment as it is developed to engage the community; so training providers can start to build courseware and exam providers can build exams. We also wanted to gain early feedback directly from our customers to help us tailor this certification to market demands. This is a new way of releasing for ISTQB®, using an iterative method building assets up until the final full launch when all materials, including exams will be ready. You will also see a new look syllabus format which focuses on the learning you will gain, supported by a Body of Knowledge giving you rich examples and walking you through each learning objective in detail.

The Agile Test Leadership at Scale qualification is aimed at people who work in an organization that is pursuing agility at scale, or business agility, and who already have a basic understanding of agile and agile testing. The ISTQB® Foundation Level certificate and Foundation Level Agile Tester certificate are prerequisites for taking the Advanced level Agile Test Leadership at Scale certification exam.”

ISTQB® President Olivier Denoo added:

“The ISTQB® is proud to release the first chapter of our new Advanced Level certification, Agile Test Leadership at Scale.

While Agile methods are spreading fast and becoming the new norm in software development and testing, the time has come to scale up and focus on a new dimension: Agility at Scale.

More than just isolated projects, organizations are facing challenges to align Agility across their whole business. Many different approaches have already been adopted by industry such as SAFe® and Spotify.

Complementing our core Foundation and Agile Tester certifications, the Advanced Level Agile Test Leadership at Scale qualification is approach-and-methods-agnostic. It is aimed at people who work in an organization which is pursuing agility at scale or business agility. In this first chapter you will learn the need to foster a value-driven quality mindset and culture.

It is also important to notice that for the first time, an ISTQB® certification is being released in several parts. Not only is this a great opportunity for our dedicated team to "walk the talk", but also a new approach to better streamline the efforts within our ecosystem. By publishing the certification in increments member boards, training providers and exam providers have the opportunity to iteratively localize materials, design courseware, and create exam questions so everyone is ready when the full certification is launched.

I hope that you will immediately start using these materials as part of the career development programs in your organizations to accelerate your business agility transformations.

I wish you all a happy reading. Stay tuned and take care...”

Chair of ISTQB® Marketing Working Group Sebastian Małyska, noted:

“It’s just a first step towards an awesome journey. Very few organizations, in fact only those that are brave ones, are designing a new product or value driven by the experimental process. This is one of the basic concepts of Agile that is commonly forgotten. Thus, ISTQB® would like to remind the community that combining two things like innovation not only at product but on the process level and strong knowledgeable and supporting team are the critical ingredients of business success.”

Thank you to all who have supported the update including Michael Pilaeten (Working Group Chair); Mette Bruhn-Pedersen (Product Owner); Jean-Luc Cossi, Richard Green, Michael Heller, Leanne Howard, Ebbe Munk, Francisca Cano Ortiz, Samuel Ouko, Tal Pe’er, Murian Song, Marcelo Chanez, and Loyde Mitchell (Authors) and many other from Exam & Marketing Work Groups.

ISTQB® releases Certified Tester Advanced Level Test Analyst v3.1 (CTAL-TA) https://www.istqb.org/news/news/2021/1062-istqb%C2%AE-releases-certified-tester-advanced-level-test-analyst-v3-1-ctal-ta.html https://www.istqb.org/news/news/2021/1062-istqb%C2%AE-releases-certified-tester-advanced-level-test-analyst-v3-1-ctal-ta.html ISTQB® has released the Advanced Level (CTAL) Test Analyst (TA) Version 3.1. This is a minor update to the CTAL-TA certification. CTAL-TA is a “Core” module within the ISTQB® Certified Tester Scheme and an in-demand next step after the ISTQB® Certified Tester Foundation Level (CTFL).

 The release consists of the ISTQB® Advanced Level Test Analyst syllabus (v3.1) and sample exam questions and answers (v2.3) each supported by Glossary keyword items and Business Outcomes with full Learning Objectives traceability. A separate Exam Structure and Rules has been extracted from the general CTAL document without substantial changes. The documents CTAL TA Overview and Accreditation Guidelines remain unchanged.

An overview of the main changes in the new 3.1 version compared with the 3.0 (2019) version can be found in the Release Notes on the ISTQB® website.

Please note the year of the syllabus release is no longer specified in the version control naming convention for CTAL-TA meaning:

  • 2019 version is referred to as v3.0
  • 2012 version is referred to as v2.0

This is the first time that an update to CTAL-TA has been released without a simultaneous release of CTAL- TTA. According to Agile principles, small iterations ensure better market adoption.

What does this CTAL-TA update mean?

From March 3rd 2021 the following will apply:

  • For English language - the 3.1 syllabus for CTAL TA will be the prevailing current version.
  • The previous 3.0 version in English will be valid to September 3rd 2021.
  • For non-English Syllabi, 3.0 will be valid to December 3rd 2021.
  • Accredited Training will remain as 3 days.
  • Accredited courses remain valid, based on the 2019 (v.3.0) syllabus for CTAL TA, however, the ISTQB® Member Board ( through its accreditation panel) will need to review and confirm that the changes to materials have been completed to reflect the update.
  • Training in other languages may continue for the CTAL TA 2012 (v.2.0) syllabus until August 3rd 2021.
  • CTAL-TA certification exams in English will only be valid if aligned to the 3.0 and 3.1 syllabus versions (3.0 only until September 3rd including for retakes).
  • Exams in other languages are still allowed for CTAL TA 2012 (v2.0) until August 3rd 2021.
  • Holders of the CTAL-TA 3.0 and any previous versions continue to hold a valid certification.

Even more information you can find in the dedicated FAQ section.

ISTQB® Advanced Level Test Analyst Product Owner / the Task Force leader of the CTAL-TA v3.1.0 development Matthias Hamburg, said:

“Shortly after the launch of the 2019 version of our CTAL-TA Syllabus, we received change requests from several stakeholders. We wanted to react quickly to those valuable suggestions, and at the same time keep the impact on training and exams limited to a minimum. We hope to achieve both goals with this minor release.”

ISTQB® President Olivier Denoo added:

“The Test Analyst is a high-quality building block within the core stream of our portfolio. I am pleased that we have been able to make it even better in a short time.”

Chair of ISTQB® Marketing Working Group Sebastian Małyska, noted:

“Our organization is never giving up on our journey to quality. We are committed to the QA community and always open for constructive feedback. If this occurs we react. Never forgetting the need for business continuity which is as very important for our partners and those aiming for certification.”

Thank you to all who have supported the update including Mette Bruhn-Pedersen (Working Group Chair); Matthias Hamburg (Product Owner); Wim Decoutere, István Forgács, Adam Roman, Jan Sabak, Marc-Florian Wendland (Authors) and many other from Exam & Marketing Work Groups.

ISTQB® and IREB® are forming an Alliance https://www.istqb.org/news/news/2020/1045-istqb%C2%AE-and-ireb%C2%AE-are-forming-an-alliance.html https://www.istqb.org/news/news/2020/1045-istqb%C2%AE-and-ireb%C2%AE-are-forming-an-alliance.html IREB logo

ISTQB® and IREB® have established alignment between their respective Glossaries The International Requirements Engineering Board (IREB®) and the International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB®) have allied to further promote the Requirements Engineering and Software Testing professions together.

The IREB® and the ISTQB® qualification schemes are closely related and each organization supports the qualification of professionals in their respective subject domains based on the current state of practice.

With both certification programs recognized throughout the world, many software quality professionals already obtain both the IREB® Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering (CPRE) and the ISTQB® Certified Tester (CT-FL) training and certifications. Hence, by aligning the terminology taught in the two qualification schemes, professionals will gain a consistent view of testing and requirements engineering.

The first joint project between ISTQB® and IREB® has been to establish alignment between their respective Glossaries - the list of terms and definitions used to underpin their subject domains.

ISTQB® and IREB® have successfully reviewed their Glossaries and aligned the terms that are used in each, and IREB® and ISTQB® are pleased to announce the publication of these newly aligned Glossary releases dated October 2020: the CPRE Glossary version 2.0 and the ISTQB® Glossary version 3.5.

“Together with IREB®, we have identified an overlap of 75 terms used in both Glossaries. To our great satisfaction, many of them were already consistent. At ISTQB®, we have adjusted the definitions of 6 quality terms, and removed 19 requirements engineering terms from our Glossary, referencing the IREB® Glossary instead. These changes are now implemented in English, other supported languages will follow soon.” – said ISTQB® Glossary Working Group Chair Matthias Hamburg.

“This alliance is of strategic importance for us because it supports professional excellence. I thank the joint team for the successful work in aligning the terminology. We are committed to further strengthen the compatibility of the two qualification schemes.” – said ISTQB® President Olivier Denoo.

“We are happy to have reached this important milestone in an excellent cooperation. The new CPRE Foundation training will be based on our new Glossary v2.0. But time does not stand still. We will keep in touch to maintain and improve compatibility.” – said IREB® Council Chair Prof. Dr. Martin Glinz.
