Examination Application

Applications for the examination in February/March 2023 should be received by Friday 3 February 2023 ( 11:59 pm Central European Time).


Prepare before you start filling in the application form to enrol for the examination. The form cannot be saved during the process. It is recommended that you yourself prepare the employment letter confirming your work experience and then print it on company letterhead and have it signed. Have this letter plus your CV and any other relevant documents (e.g. company registration when you have your own business) ready for uploading before you start.

The examination fee is EURO 100. A request to pay together with an invoice will be sent after the application has been reviewed to determine if the candidate is eligible to sit the examination, and the candidate has been accepted for enrolment for the examination. Please note that it is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that the exam registration fee is paid by the due date. The invoice will only be sent to the applicant and not to any third party who may be paying the invoice or reimbursing the applicant. The ISBQPIP will not provide any further services in order to facilitate payments, such as registration in vendor systems, requesting PO numbers, submitting invoices via payment systems, etc. 

Please note:

  1. You are expected to use your own databases/tools for the exam. If you don't have access to the databases/tools you would like to use, please let us know asap and we will try to arrange this for you. 
  2. The examination will be in English. Databases/tools with English interfaces should be used. Answers comprising interface labels such as search fields in a language other than English will not be marked.
  3. During the examination you need to have a webcam built-in or connected to your computer. The webcam will be used to take photos at random intervals in order to prevent fraudulent behaviour. Without photos your exam part(s) will not be marked.
