    The SASTQB is not responsible for any loss or damage as a result of a substitution, alteration or cancellation/postponement of the TEST-IT Conference. The SASTQB shall assume no liability whatsoever in the event this conference is cancelled, rescheduled or postponed due to a fortuitous event, Act of God, unforeseen occurrence or any other event that renders performance of this conference impracticable, illegal or impossible, in the sole opinion of the SASTQB. For the purpose of this clause, a fortuitous event shall include but not limited to war, fire, earthquake, labour strike, extreme weather or other emergencies.

    Please note that while speakers and topics were confirmed at time of publishing, circumstances beyond the control of the organisers may necessitate substitutions, alterations or cancellations of speakers and/or topics and the programme and the format of the event may be changed accordingly. As such, the SASTQB reserves the right to alter or modify the advertised speakers, topics, formats or programme as deemed necessary without any liability to the delegates whatsoever. Any/all substitutions, alterations or amendments will be notified via updates on the conference website as soon as possible.

  • All “Early Bird” discounts require payment at the time of registration and before the cut-off date in order to receive any discount.

    In order to qualify for the “Student” discount, you will be required to produce a student registration document reflecting that you are a registered full-time student during 2017 at a University or Technicon.

  • In the past, the conference organiser has released details of the registrants to the sponsors and exhibitors to facilitate communication between the delegates, sponsors and exhibitors. If you do not wish your details to be released in this way, please email register@sastqb.org.za . We reserve the right to include your name, email and organisation in the conference delegate list unless you advise the conference organiser four weeks before the event that you do not wish to be included.

  • Every effort will be made to ensure that delegates with special needs are catered for. Should you require any specific assistance, or catering provision, please include the relevant details in your registration.

  • Please be aware that conference staff will be taking photographs, video, and audio to record events during the conference. These may be displayed on the SASTQB website or used by the SASTQB for promotional purposes (for example, in print or web format). You will need to accept and agree to the following statements:

    • I understand that the SASTQB may use these images in their marketing material.
    • I understand that if I do not wish to have my image, or voice recorded and used in this way then I need to inform the conference organiser and any media person taking my photo, videoing me or recording my voice at the conference.

    If you contact the conference organiser, a sticker will be placed on your conference name tag that will alert photographers of your wishes. They will do their utmost to avoid photographing or recording people identified in this way. It is also your responsibility to remove yourself from situations where photographs are being taken, or video and audio are being recorded.

    Other delegates may take and distribute images or recordings via social networking sites or independent websites or reports. The SASTQB can take no responsibility for material or images used in this way.

  • All advice, decisions, opinions, recommendations, proposals, presentations, seminars and reports, whether written or oral, are made in good faith by the SASTQB on the basis of value judgements influenced by current commercial and organisational conditions. These may be affected by unforeseen events and factors outside the SASTQB’s control and, as such, we reserve the right to amend or cancel planned or previously agreed to arrangements. In this instance, the SASTQB shall not be liable in any event to delegates, exhibitors, or any other person or third party for any direct or consequential loss or damage sustained arising out of or in connection with the event.

  • The ISTQB Agile Tester tutorial includes a free exam session, provided by the SASTQB. Delegates will require the ISTQB CTFL-Foundation certificate to qualify for the exam.

    Delegates have the opportunity to write your ISTQB Agile Tester exam on 15 October 2018, 19 November 2018 or 10 December 2018. (free of charge)

    Delegates will only be able to write the Agile exam until 10 December 2018 free of charge. No exam sessions will be accepted after the set date. Any registrations submitted after the exam due date will be invoiced accordingly. 

    Failure to submit the ISTQB CFTL-Foundation certificate to the SASTQB before the set exam date will result in deregistration. Delegates that do not have the ISTQB CTFL-Foundation certificate will have to write and pass the ISTQB CTFL-Foundation exam at their own expense before writing the ISTQB Agile Tester exam sessions.
