COVID-19: An Important Message

In light of the risk posed by the COVID-19 pandemic to exam candidates, SASTQB staff and service providers and in line with government directives relating to social distancing and gatherings, a number of measures will be in place during exam sessions, until further notice.

All public exam sessions will continue as per the exam schedule, but the following safety measures will be implemented:

  • The total number of candidates allowed into the exam venue will be reduced, allowing for an increased distance between individual candidates.
  • Exam candidates are permitted to wear a face mask before, during and after the exam. (Face masks will be available for purchase.)
  • Hand sanitizers will be made available to all exam candidates, SASTQB staff and service providers.
  • The exam venue and immediate environment will be disinfected prior to each exam.
  • The exam venue and immediate environment will be well ventilated.
  • Any individual experiencing flu-like symptoms such as headache, fever, sore throat or dry cough is asked not to attend the exam session, but rather to reschedule.
  • Individuals exhibiting any of above symptoms will not be allowed to enter the exam venue.

The SASTQB retains the right to reschedule any exam session should the situation require. In the case of an exam being rescheduled, paid exam fees will be carried over.
