      BH0-010 is exam code for Prometric center. ASTQB does not offer exam in Prometric center. The choice is yours where to take the exam from. Syllabus and exam patterns are same in both case.

    I want to take up the ISTQB Foundation level certification. This can be done via registering in prometric center through above link. My question is whether ITB (Indian Testing Board) offering this certification is a prometric center or pearson center. How is this different from other global providers like BCS etc..

    • ISTQB Guru October 15, 2015 at 9:04 pm - Reply

      Indian Board does not offer exam via Prometric or PearsonVue. They offer exam via some other exam vendor.

      Certificates are same, with same value accepted worldwide. It is like buying an iPhone from different retail site. Same product, different invoice/money receipt.

    Hi Team,

    I am confused with online exams, can you please tell me the different between ISEB-SWT2: ISTQB-ISEB Certified Tester Foundation Level and BH0-004 – BCS Certified Tester Foundation Level.

    • ISTQB Guru October 17, 2015 at 10:42 am - Reply

      BH0-004 is no longer used. It was an old exam code. It is now BH0-010 which is equivalent to ISEB-SWT2: ISTQB-ISEB. Both are same exams offered by different exam vendors.

    Hi the link for Prometric centre is not working, I tried manually to search for the details in the Prometric site, it requires “Test Sponsor” details. Please help.

    I am trying to schedule ISTQB-Advance Test manager from prometric. But I am not seeing any options. I am currently in Kolkata, INDIA. Can you please give me steps on how to schedule it?


    • ISTQB Guru December 23, 2016 at 11:06 pm - Reply

      I think the advanced level exams are not supported currently from Prometric. You will have to take it through Indian Testing Board.
