Using the ISTQB Foundation Level as a base, the BCS Professional Certification – Software Tester syllabus develops and supplements core testing principles by considering the typical circumstances that anyone involved in testing encounters in the workplace. The BCS Professional Certificate – Software Tester exam demonstrates that candidates can apply software testing knowledge and skills to practical real-life situations through scenario-driven questions.
This three-day tutor-led course includes lectures, exercises and practical work. At the end of day three delegates prepare and take the examination. It is fully-accredited by BCS Professional Certifications and they have rated it as SFIAplus level 4.
Who is it for?
This BCS Professional Certificate Software Testing course is for anyone involved in practical software testing activities. It is not role-specific and considers the typical cross-skills required for a tester at any level working in a collaborative software development environment. The BCS Professional Certificate – Software Tester exam bridges the gap between the ISTQB Foundation and the role-based ISTQB Advanced Certificates and prepares candidates for more complex and in-depth role-based syllabi and scenario-driven examinations.
About BCS Professional Certification & ISTQB
BCS Professional Certifications have been established for over 25 years, and, until recently, were marketed under the ISEB (Information Systems Examination Board) portfolio. During this time they have gained worldwide recognition and are delivered in over 200 countries and are mapped to SFIAplus.
Founded in 2002, ISTQB (International Software Testing Qualifications Board) is a not-for-profit association, comprising 47 national boards (including the UKTB) covering 71 countries worldwide. It is responsible for the international software testing qualification scheme called ‘ISTQB Certified Tester’ which with over 240,000 certifications, has become the de facto world-wide standard for software testing qualifications.
The ‘Certified Tester’ scheme:
- provides a set of professional qualifications widely-recognised by employers, customers and peers;
- enables software suppliers to hire and train certified testers and thereby gain commercial advantage over their competitors by advertising their tester recruitment and development policies; and
- enables comparison of testing skills across different countries, testers to move across country borders more easily, and multi-national/international projects to have a common understanding of testing issues.
