Who is it for ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course for?

The ISTQB Certified Tester Foundation Level is principally aimed at anyone directly involved in software testing, who needs to demonstrate practical knowledge of the fundamental concepts, such as testers, test analysts, test engineers, test leads, test consultants, test managers, user acceptance testers and software developers.

This software testing course is also ideal for all those who have an interest in understanding the basic concepts of software testing, and so is additionally appropriate for project managers, quality managers, software development managers, business analysts, IT directors and management consultants.

 About ISTQB and the ‘Certified Tester’ Scheme

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.

ISTQB has defined the Advanced certification as part of their ‘Certified Tester’ scheme that, 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.
I enjoyed your training so much and passed the exam first time! I loved your style of teaching”.

248 reviews for ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course

  1. Pawandeep Singh | Test Engineer | Capgemini

    Overall very satisfied, the tutor made it easier to acquire the knowledge by going through a mixture of lectures, explanations, questions and answers. All of these were very well explained.

  2. Matthew Colin Cockerell | Senior Software Tester | Lloyds Register

    Really enjoyed the course especially Rosemary presenting and course management style. There is a lot of content which is understandle, so there isn’t much time for wider debate we fellow course members which is what I was expecting. Perhaps using breakout rooms (MS teams) would improve course member interactions.

  3. Patryk Zmijewski | It Systems Support Adminstrator | Decora

    Very beneficial and helpful

  4. Dario Guzzetta | Senior Software QA | Lloyd Register

    Good and dense.

  5. Emma Amess | QA Test Analyst | CaseWare

    I felt John explained each section in great user friendly details. The explanations helped my understanding. I feel very positive

  6. Prince Agyei Frimpong | Test Analyst | Capgemini

    Although it was an Intensive course John made it very engaging with his examples and also explained every details properly . Having classroom and homework examples also helped a lot

  7. Vicky Li | Graduate trainee | KPMG LLP UK

    The course trainer has explained the concept well and has good interactions in the classes.

  8. Dayne Lucas | system support administrator | Decora

    quite intense and for me feel like i need to revise over again so i can lock in the information. but overall i believe this will help me in my role even if i do not pass the test. trainer was very good.

  9. Callum Nightingale | Software Engineer | Capgemini

    Very good course

  10. Nikki Dodsworth | Process Expert | Siemens Plc

    The first time I have completed a remote course and was anxious about how it would work, but the sessions were well structured and organised. John allowed plenty of time for discussion which worked well and made the session interactive with knowledgeable clear explanations

  11. Alexander Hendrick | Apprentice Software Test Engineer | IBM

    The course content was good and contained a lot of useful information. The trainer spoke clearly and was very helpful. My only issues are that I think the course would be better suited to a 4-5 day course rather than 3 as it did feel like we were rushing through a lot of it. Also, I feel that the way the exam is written is intentionaly misleading as it feels most questions catch you out not on the content but in the language it is written.

  12. krishna kriti | senior test analyst | PWC

    very helpful.great experience

  13. Jamie MacDonald | Graduate Trainee FS Tech Enablement | KPMG

    So much to learn in so little time! The inclusion of a concise, very well thought out study guide would go a long way to help.

  14. Anna Funnell | Software Engineer | Capgemini

    The course was very intense with lots of information over a short time, but the way it was delivered meant I was able to keep up and retain most of the details. The regular breaks helped with processing what we had learnt and made it easier to concentrate on the rest. Questions were explained really well and they weren’t rushed over either.

  15. Tony Fairall | Test Analyst | Central England Co-operative

    Very intense, some concepts hard to understand, but simply because it was so far from any practical realworld experience I have encountered so far.

  16. Thomas Massey | Apprentice Tester | Northern Ireland Civil Service

    Very detailed course and learned many valuable skills that I will be able to use on my working day and gives me a good foundation to build on for other courses

  17. Huw Ward | Test Principal | Rare Ltd

    John was very good at taking the course and teaching us, only issue was it was difficult to read his handwriting at times (which he did upfront apologise for). I think the Exam questions are very tricky for a Foundation course and set out to catch you out more than I would expect for this level. I know you are teaching the course though and not setting the exam.

  18. Rachel Livingston | Developer Technician | HSCNI – BSO

    Course was good, although I feel as a foundation course it was difficult. I feel you would need to have a good testing background before taking this course compared to other foundation courses I have been on. Rosie was a great trainer although I felt some of the scenarios that Rosie was providing had nothing to do with testing so I found it hard to pair it with a testing environment. I understand the concept just found it harder to see them in testing environments.

  19. Emma Gander | Test Analyst | Aegon

    Information was clear and well presented. Review of sample questions very beneficial

  20. Pete Carss | Driver QA Engineer | Focusrite Audio

    Well presented, but sequence of presentation -> mock testing doesn’t suite all learners

  21. Ellen Tebbutt | Junior Test Analyst | Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

    Very well presented considering it was online. Plenty of breaks with consideration for the heaviness of the material. Good prep materials provided.

  22. Sasha Devi-Bangar | Junior Software Test Automation Engineer | Global Inkjet Systems

    The course was very interesting and everything was explained in a lot of detail, helping me to understand some of the key concepts of testing better. There was also lots of exam practice and detailed explainations of the answers which was also very useful.

  23. Jack Walker | Software Engineer | Capgemini

    The course ran well and covered the topics in enough detail for me to understand them. For context, I’m a recent graduate and I found the content easier to pick up than some of my colleagues who have been working in the industry for a while now. This is not a reflection on the course so much as on the qualification though.
    Angelina delivered the content at a good pace and allowed plenty of time for discussion/debate.
    Overall I felt it was good.

  24. jamie rolls | software engineer | capgemini

    The course content was quite heavy, but was broken down well over the 3 days. The course was delivered well and John answered all queries that people raised with integrity.

  25. Scott Varns | Software Engineer | Capgemini

    Informative and intense, however feel I have learned alot.

  26. Ethan Holland | Software Engineer | Capgemini

    I think some of the content is quite bloated and there is a lot of information, however the trainer was great and helped the course be interactive and enjoyable.

  27. Sam Henry | Business Systems Tester | Moneybarn

    Extremely well delivered. Informative. Valuable. Would recommend.

  28. Liam McClelland | Test Analyst | Capgemini

    The experience was great albeit intense and a lot of information to take in.

    The mixture of lecture and class/homework excercises really does help us to apply what we’ve learnt and to test ourselves.

    The benefit is that our exam is in a few days so provides us enough time to go over what we’ve learnt and to work on areas we may be weaker in.

  29. James Freeman | Software Engineer | Capgemini

    Enjoyable and engaging course will plenty of helpful advice.

  30. jonathan maillie | Graduate trainee | KPMG

    A lot to cover but really extremely interesting material that Angelina made much easier to get through in the time alotted

  31. Avra Ghosh | Senior Associate II | PWC

    The course is very good and the approach to complete in short span of time is perfect.

  32. Sumit Kushwaha | SA | PwC

    Course content was quite informative

  33. Andy Freeman | Software Engineer | Cap Gemini

    Good course, well paced and a very knowledgable trainer.

  34. John Dupre | Systems Administrator | Decora Blinds

    Excellent course, very well delivered, a lot to cover in 3 days.

  35. John Dupre | Systems Administrator | Decora Blinds

    Excellent course with a lot packed into a short period. Some question examples a little difficult to understand but explanations were very clear.

  36. Paul Emmett | Software Tester (Analyst) | JBA Consulting

    Very informative, sometimes intense, but an enjoyable experience. John is a good, thorough trainer who takes great care to ensure trainees understand concepts fully and responds to any comments or issues raised.

  37. Arjun Limbu | Test engineer | Trakcel

    It was helpful to refine on test techniques and process which I have learned so far. Still working on progress with the documentation sections and this course helped.

  38. David Wong | Project Test Lead | Rare LTD

    I thought John was a very good teacher, always took time to explain things clearly and precisely, and was very patient when required. The actual course felt quite intensive but manageable.

  39. Kirandeep | Kaur | IBM

    Course content was difficult so having more interactivity instead of a trainer speaking 9 to 5 would be more beneficial.

  40. Samantha Clarke | Test Analyst | BLM

    I came to this course having already studied the syllabus and an additional book and knew where the gaps in my knowledge were. Rosie has helped to fill in those gaps and has explained things greatly and used examples to show this. She also spent time after day 2 giving me tips/advice which I greatly appreciated. Rosie is very patient with everyone’s different abilities and really knows her stuff. I appreciate the help she has given and would highly recommend her.

  41. Harry Dawes | QA Test Analyst | CaseWare UK

    It was very informative and even the parts that we were bogged down with theory were made easy to follow & understand.

  42. Adam Jones | Software Architect | Capgemini

    Trainer was good, well explained and friendly.

    Course was presented well, but covered more than the scope of the testing course I signed up for. I don’t feel like the SDLC, Reviews, etc needed covering in this course and the section on actual test techniques was quite short.

  43. Sam Liu | Graduate Technology Consultant | KPMG

    The training was interactive and Angelina is really helpful and engaging.

  44. Joshua Smith | Senior validation engineer | Advanced Electronics

    Rosie did a fantastic job. she was very clear and very informative in the way she explained everything. The course isn’t simple, so explaining everything in detail was a great help. Thanks!

  45. James Thomas Isted | Level 4 Software Tester Apprentice | HMRC

    Overall the course was good, unfortunately I will have to revise more afterwards due to the way I take in information. For some reason a person reading it out to me just doesn’t stick in my brain. Other than that a great course.

  46. George Stephens | Software Test Apprentice | IBM

    Overall the course was good despite challenging content. Rosie was helpful, kind and friendly. She gave us frequent breaks and plenty of time to complete the excersises.

    I think a smaller class would enable more interactive activities that would have benefited my learning more than the lecture style learning that had open questions.

  47. Mohammed Hafijour Rahman | Graduate V+V engineer | Northrop Grumman

    Lovely guy and a great teacher but he asked if we were okay a little too much.

  48. Ian Cook | Tester | Precision

    In depth & well explained, made sure everyone understood properly before moving on

  49. Sam Reed | Lead Developer | Capgemini

    I found the course engaging and interesting, i would have preferred fewer words per slide and more breaks to digest. I also found that the length given for the questions during class time was not always proportionate to the effort required for the question. Angelina was a good host and i enjoyed chatting about real life examples.

  50. Ormond Jones | Seniore Quality Assurane Analyst | Merit Software

    Course, whilst being intensive, was informative and thorough.
    John was patient and explained any items clearly.
    Genreal frustration at some of the exam questions, which I am sure have been mentioned many times before.

  51. Jasvinder Marwaha | Test engineer | Capgemini

    Course was great, Lot of information to take in limited amount of time. I believe students will benifit if course trainig time could be increased from 3 to 4 days.

  52. Vithuran Mahendran | Graduate Verification and Validation Engineer | Northrop Grumman

    Great Course!

  53. Max Attwood | Graduate Trainee | KPMG

    Very well taught course. Lots of content that was present well and consolidated. Having access to past questions and answers makes all the difference. Having access to even more papers could be great for revision.

  54. Yana Baker | Software Enginerr | Capgemini

    Interesting yet intense course, covers basic disciplines and necessary knowledge required for this field. Overall really enjoyed the experience, with an experienced instructor being able to link in real life situations definitely helped my learning. Sample questions and test exercises helped consolidate the content delivered over the three days. Just need to put the work in now to revise for the exam.

  55. Lewis Surgenor | Software Tester | Capgemini

    Best course I have taken part on, the material was delivered well and each part was talked through thoroughly and each point was dissected to help us understand the points being made.

    There was a large amount of information being delivered but It was all relevant to our course and my role as a Software Tester so It was a really interesting experience to be a part of. Angelina was a wonderful course leader, very welcoming and helped to explain if I got a question wrong and I really do like for the answer booklets for the practice questions that when it said the right answer, it actually explains WHY the answer is correct and WHY the others are wrong which makes it a lot easier to revise

    The only thing I would want more of is more example exam questions to work through but that is personal for me and the best way that I revise, maybe a kind of “cheat sheet” for the end to help go over as well would help.

  56. Chris Gibbs | Associate Technician | Ordnance Survey

    Course was well structured and tackles the syllabus. Rosie was a great trainer and made every step as clear as possible

  57. Verbena Biasizzo | Test Engineer | Baillie Gifford

    The course was intense, but it was well structured (giving enough breaks to restore ourselves). The material to cover was a lot but there was always time to ask questions and stop if something wasn’t clear.

  58. Brad Tyldesley | Software Engineer | Capgemini

    Course has been great – a lot of information split in to easily digestible chunks. Ran very smoothly and there was a lot of support available on demand throughout.
    My only criticism would be that it felt like there were huge pieces of information between each ask-back on that content, it could be better to add questions in to the actual content itself throughout to help keep engagement and solidify understanding.

  59. Shozab Ahmad | Tech consulting | KPMG

    Great, past papers are tricky

  60. Sophia Shi | Graduate Trainee-Corps Tech Strategy Consulting | KPMG

    Angelina is really helpful and patient. She is good at explaining difficult concepts for us and and was trying to make intensive course light and easy:)

  61. Ashwini Todkar | Senior Associate 2 | PwC Kolkata

    Very informative and helpful

  62. Jessy Sarzosa | graduate trainee – digital consulting | KPMG

    It was a lot to take in, but the trainer did an amazing job at making it easy to understand and keep us engaged

  63. Abdulkadir Maxamed | Software Engineer | Capgemini

    Intensive course, extremely well presenter helped break down and understand the material really well.

  64. Harpreet Sunner | Software Engineer | Capgemini

    Highest detailed and well explained throughout by Angelina. 100% would recommended

  65. Jordan Sayer | Junior QA | Zoopla

    I find it very difficult because theres a lot of information to take in such a small amount of time

  66. Nick Dando | Test Engineer | CACI

    The course was good. For me, I would have liked more group exercises and more encouragement for all people to talk/join in. The pace was good, although it is a lot to take in as a new tester

  67. Grzegorz Dzwonnik | Test Analyst | Iforce LTD

    the course is conducted in a nice and pleasant atmosphere. Rosie paid a lot of attention to any questions.

  68. Matt Fallon | Test Analyst | Capgemini

    Course & content was all good – Learnt a lot 🙂

  69. Paul Incles|Service Operations Analyst|Rail Delivery Group

    Great Tutor, Well paced. Many thanks

  70. Lauren Brender|Test Automation Trainee|Caseware UK Ltd

    Excellently well put together course, and Rosie was a wonderful trainer, answering any and all questions, and came well prepared with the information to help us succeed

  71. William Pawsey|Business Testing Coordinator|Cambridge Asessment

    The course was useful on information and data with opportunities to apply what was being taught at regular intervals. Struggled to stay engaged due to the number of slides/information being presented, this may be exacerbated due to the course being remote.

  72. Orla Maher|BA|DAFM

    A lot of material to cover in just 3 days, sample exams appear extremely difficult compared to the course material

  73. Stephen Martin|EO – IMT Development Specialist|Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine

    I found the course very interesting and informative. The material was very well presented by the trainer, and the regular exercises and homework activities helped.
    It is also useful to learn the common vernacular of the testing profession, even if it does not entirely match what I am familiar with in my work place.

  74. Ryan Hill|Tester|Merit Software

    Considering the dense volume of course material I think Rosie did a fantastic job covering the important aspects of the syllabus, I have no problems with her communication and teaching. The course is very dense due to the broad nature of the knowledge it’s trying to provide. Myself coming from an environment where the bulk of these practices are not widely used it’s certainly been a steep learning curve;but very valuable.

  75. Avril Smith|Executive Officer|Department of Agriculture

    Course was very in-depth and informative.
    The summary slides are very beneficial for recapping on what has been discussed previously.
    A good amount of coursework was included and sufficient time was spent explaining the rationale behind the correct answers.

  76. Harpreet Sunner|Software Engineer|Capgemini

    Excellent presented and very well explaining throughout the 3 days of training. Contained a lot of detail within testing.

  77. Samuel Green|Software Tester|IBM

    I thought the instructor was great at explaining concepts in detail without causing information overload. The platform allowed for quick note taking and John used lots of live diagrams and notes to really bring the topics alive.
    There was also a good mix of exercises vs discussion

  78. Samuel Green|Software Tester|IBM

    I thought the instructor was great at explaining concepts in detail without causing information overload.
    There was enough information to break ratio too, I never felt too overwhelmed but learnt a lot.
    There was also a good mix of exercises vs discussion

  79. Charles Lister|Software Engineer Apprentice|IBM

    I found that the information on the course was delivered in an extremely comprehensive manner as John’s explanations did well to ensure that points mentioned were explained in a manner for all to understand.

  80. |Softwer Tester Apprentice|

    The course was really informative, everything was explained in great detail and I found the exercises really useful to put the theory in to pratice. I appreciate that we discussed all the questions after we tried to resolve them. I also found it really useful that John added notes in the presention as we went along and also used the Whiteboard tool to illustrate what he was explaining. The course was nicely structured, the explanations were clear.

  81. Cameron Gough|Software Engineer|Capgemini

    Really useful to expand my agile knowledge

  82. Brad Smith|Software Engineer|Capgemini

    I thought everything was presented very well and I feel I’ve learnt a lot, thanks Angelina!

  83. Adam Williams|QA Trader|Derivco

    Course was very thorough and the numerous mock questions/exercises helped me to understand the syllabus.

  84. Edward Jukes-Jones|Software Developer|Capgemini

    Great course and learnt a lot from Angelina

  85. Tom Dipple|Software Engineer|Capgemini

    Angelina was very engaging and was keeping everyone involved an d this really helped in the afternoons when you get tired

  86. Luke Goring|Software Engineer|Capgemini

    Well run course with plenty of detail and a good experience.

  87. Ellen Venn|Scrum Master/Software Engineer|Capgemini

    The course was well delivered and structured in a good way. It was highly beneficial for learning about testing and I would recommend this course to peers.

  88. Luke Mason|QA Engineer|Focusrite Audio Engineer Ltd

    A++, super engaging, regular breaks, nice breakdown of the exam paper. John is a clear and concise teacher that has filled myself with confidence in passing the exam.

  89. Ali Guler|Software Test Engineer Apprentice|IBM

    I think John did a great job delivering the course itself, explained the topics and the methods very well and it is obvious he has a lot of experience and knowledge regarding software testing. My criticism would be with the ISTQB exam and the questions themselves, but John did his best to explain it to us and help us all understand it.

  90. Manda Gray|Test Analyst|KR Group

    I found this course excellent. Although I am already an experienced tester, I learned the formal theory behind what I do every day as well as new theories that I do not typically employ in my current position. The course was well paced and the material was presented in a way which was easy to follow and understand.

  91. PAul Donegan|Junior Dev/Tester|Strawberry UK Ltd

    A dense topic covered clearly and with lots of help. It. Was. Clear

  92. Gupta Gurung|Test Engineer|IDBS

    Course helped understand many unexplored areas of software testing. Wide range of testing terminologies to get familiar with. Engaging exercises are helpful in checking your understanding as well as prepare for exam type questions.

  93. Sipon Majumder|Associate|PwC SDC, Kolkata

    Very much Informative and learned a lot of new things about Testing

  94. Souvik Karmakar|Associate|PwC SDC,KOLKATA

    Very much informative and learn lots of new things from the course.

  95. Sandra Obi|Data and Tech Consultant|KPMG

    Well presented course material by John with a lot of clarification. Also online course has been beneficial as you save approximately 3 hours for getting ready and travel and feel refreshed at the start of the course.

  96. Oliver Ingleby|Tester|Companies House

    John was a very engaging, helpful and knowledgeable trainer. He provided real life examples from his career which help bring the subject to life. The regular screen breaks really helped my concentration as did the regular exercises for us to complete.

  97. Madhu Mahadeva|Test Consultant|NEST Corporation

    Well paced course, trainer was very knowledgeable and friendly.

  98. Konstantina Zioga|software tester|

    Very informative, better than I thought it was going to be given it was a virtual course.

  99. Karl Gwilliam|IT QA Lead|Deloitte

    This was a good experience and presented well. It was presented well over Goto as well, it was nice to be at home and not have the stress of having to go to a location for this for sure.

    The content was spot on, although a lot to take it I think with the right amount of revision I should be able to pass the exam.

    I would recommend this course to anyone looking to getting into the testing world for sure. It has opened my eyes as well and made think about whether a career is right for me in testing full time.

  100. Faiz Ahmed|Software Tester|Atheon Analytics

    Course was good, adequate breaks and detailed content. Using the Online platform was a better experience than i thought it would be

  101. Clara Fordham|Test Analyst|WiggleCRC

    It was good, great slides! Glad to do it online. Just wish we could request a printed version of the materials.

  102. Anthony Tibbs|Analyst|Old Mutual Wealth / Quilter

    course was explained well, trainer was excellent

  103. Samiha Akter | Graduate Technology Consultant | KPMG

    Angelina was amazing at teaching the content – she was interactive, engaging and enthusiast. I believe an improvement for the exam would be to have more K3 questions as application of learning is better.

  104. yusra shabir | grad trainee | kpmg

    It was really good, there were very hard concepts however angelina took time and care to help anybody and everybody out whilst still being on track for our course. Angelina was always joyful and kept us engaged, even on very hard topics and when we were tired. I found her examples very helpful in explaining topics. Also her experience not only helped us understand the exam sceanrios but also helped understand us what we can expect in real life testing scenarios. Some improvements on the course content is Maybe some videos explaining certain types of concepts in context e.g. amazon company decided to build this app for X, Y, z would have been helpful and we could access that on teh PP slides in our own time. This is because the sessions are not recorded so any examples used/talked about will have disappeared from memory as theres so much content and so many examples. We also had a few technical issues so maybe a better platform for collaboration? Overall I loved the course and learning with Angelina!

  105. Ellie Hindley-Skelt | Graduate Trainee | KPMG

    there were a lot of technical problems at first but once we moved from go to meetings to teams then it was fine. Would suggest going straight to teams.

  106. Caro Edwards | Consulting Graduate Trainee | KPMG UK

    Found the content very extensive and questions quite difficult to answer but trainer was helpful and taught us in depth

  107. Cameron Thomley | Technology Consultant | KPMG

    The course was well delivered but the content itself can be confusing due to the nature of there being a large amount of unfamiliar terminology that feeds into one another. Angelina was brilliant at clarifying confusions however which helped a lot.

  108. Tonna Anyansi | Graduate Trainee | KPMG

    Angelina covered the relevant information and went through practice questions after every topic. She was great answering questions, and did well making the content digestible.

  109. Alex Stewart | Digital Consultant Grad Trainee | KPMG

    A lot of content in little time. A very enthusiastic and helpful trainer.

  110. Sofia Melia Castilla | Graduate Trainee | KPMG

    Trainer explained everything very clearly and enthusiastically. It was a lot of information and syllabus to digest in 4 days but Angelina made it fun and easier to understand. Very good experience overall!

  111. Mohamed Shurfudeen | Project Engineer | Trinity Systems

    I personally found it hard to understand certain concepts because i have no prior testing experience.

  112. Aleksandra Zmuda | IT Solutions Test Analyst | Clipper Logistics

    The course met my expectations, highly informative, clearly explained, useful for my current role and carrier path I have chosen. Thank you!

  113. Chelsea Houston | Software Engineer / Test Analyst | Capgemini

    Very insightful and informative. Trainer kept my attention throughout the whole 3 days. Was happy to help out when we were confused. Hard course with a lot of work needed but well worth it. Learnt a lot of very helpful info. Trainer very friendly and easy to understand and get along with. Looking forward to taking more courses in the future.

  114. Robbie Aitken | Programmer | Euroclear

    Interesting course, Rosie was a great trainer. Good delivery, kept us engaged, well-paced, also very very patient.

  115. Dylan Anderson | Software Tester Apprentice | RWE Supply and Trading

    Really good course. Provides plenty of information needed for being a tester, although I think it needs better pacing, so that I can get the info from the course noted for exam revision.

  116. Jon Hardman | Test Analyst | Principality

    I found Rosie very easy to listen to, very patient, and felt like i could ask questions when I needed. In my personal opinion the syllabus of the course seemed to reference outdated techniques. However Rosie was very good in teaching these. In future I personally would find it better if there was even more engagement e.g. more questions to the group.

  117. Ian Smith | QA Analyst | Principality

    Course tutor was brill, What was hardest was the way some of the example questions/ISTQB syllabus was written.

  118. Chris Elias | Test Engineer | Principality

    Rosie was a good tutor – she was very well spoken and explained the syllabus as best as possible. The course seems to be very manual tester focused which was disappointing for me as I mainly work with Test Automation. I found the exam questions have been made deliberately difficult and ambiguous. I feel there was a big focus on boundary/partition testing which I feel is a very small area in software testing these days. Overall I feel this course is a bit outdated for todays modern software development requirements.

  119. Molly Green | Senior Functional Test Analyst | Ocado

    Rosie was very approachable and patient with the large volumes of questions asked of her, and good at explaining things in a simple way.

  120. Swapnil Kumar | Associate | PwC SDC Kolkata

    It was very nice throughout. And also how well explained by Richard. Much appreciated.

  121. Harsh Manjhi | Test Analyst (Associate) | PwC

    It was very informative, i feel all ready for the certification exam and the trainer for this course couldn’t have been better.

  122. Simran Rai | Associate | PwC SDC Kolkata

    It was very helpful and much needed course for me atleast.

  123. Hyma P R | Senior Associate | PWC

    Richard explained everything in detail. Deals all the queries with lots of patience.

  124. Arindam Pal | Senior Associate | PwC

    Training was very informative and provided lots of valuable information and clarifications on Functional Testing. Got the clear understanding on all the testing terminology.

  125. Sarvottam Kumar | Associate | PWC

    The course was thorough and it covers almost everything.

  126. Andrew Ring | QA Engineer | Virtalis

    Difficult over GoToMeeting – I would always choose classroom based if possible but time made this necessary. More, shorter breaks – I assume that everybody had to nip away for 5 minute breaks every now and then. I think attempting to get more involvement from the attendees would help?

  127. Morgan O Donnell | System tester | PTSB

    Alot of content however much of the mock tests are ambiguous. I feel the questions are not very suited to the course material

  128. Paula Jones | BDM | test

    excellent!

  129. Samadul Islam|Software Test Engineer|IBM

    The course was to intense for the amount of material against the amount of days and could do with more help for the exam day.

  130. Amanda Jupp | Product Analyst |Trace Solutions

    This course was very informative.

  131. Jacob McKenzie | Senior Test Analyst |Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust

    John cleared the content at a good pace and was very engaging which kept my mind focused on the information.

  132. James Anderson | QA Tester Apprentice |Invotra Limited

    The course was very interesting and informative, I have learnt many new things in relation to testing and the business usage and approach to it.

  133. Ben Sykes | Test Analyst |NHS

    Fantastic course. Great level of knowledge from the trainer who explained things clearly and in great detail.

  134. Rebecca Brandon | Automation Engineer |Simplyhealth

    The course taught me a lot more than expected. I am glad my company sent me on a course rather than me doing self study, because of the sheer amount of content to cover.

  135. Majd Kassawat | Test Lead |OMRON

    Very clear and straightforward explanation.
    The presentation is interactive enough.
    Workload is well balanced between home and class.

  136. Rebecca Sloane | Test Analyst |NHS

    Very helpful and clearly presented. Going through examples was really useful for heavy course material. Worked well despite being at home and online.

  137. Stephen Bruce | QA Engineer |Fuel3D

    John was a very good teacher, explained everything well and set us up perfectly for the exam

  138. Robert Macdonald | Software Test Engineer |IBM

    We completed a 2 day online introduction to test course, where we listen to a presentation and took part in multiple exercises.

  139. Philippa Hodge | Automation Tester |WTC

    Very good at keeping people’s attention – much harder online so she did a grand job of that.

  140. Philippa Hodge | Automation Tester |WTC

    Very good at keeping people’s attention – much harder online so she did a grand job of that.

  141. Patrick Wilson | Test Analyst |IBM

    Very Informative, a good pace to the course and really good explanations and links to how it will be used in the “Real world”. My only “Even better if”, is if a little more writing on the slides could be done just to explain the slides a little more.

  142. Patrick Wilson|Test Analyst|IBM

    Very Informative, a good pace to the course and really good explanations and links to how it will be used in the “Real world”. My only “Even better if”, is if a little more writing on the slides could be done just to explain the slides a little more.

  143. Sheila Brogden|Tester|Civil Service

    Rosie is clearly very knowledgeable about the subject and was able to use lots of real life examples to demonstrate her explanations.

  144. Victoria Blake-Dobell|Software Tester|DNV

    My trainer was thorough and friendly, and the course provided me with a lot of incredibly useful information and insights.

  145. Adam Compton|Test & Config Analyst|ERS

    Solid instruction, decent support materials. Impacted slightly (albeit completely understandably) by having it performed remotely, but the trainer did very well considering.

  146. Tony Thomas|Product Delivery Test Analyst|LV Insurance

    Rosie Sheldon was absolutely fantastic at explaining, making sure you understood if you raised any questions, clear, approachable. It was a pleasure!

  147. Austen Fletcher|Software Tester Trainee|Reallymoving Ltd

    I felt that Rosie dealt very well with the volume of content, in particular during the first day (which she kindly warned us about).

    I also found it useful that she gave us guidance on the sorts of areas we ought to prioritise learning.

    I found her teaching style engaging, and appreciated the way she brought in personal anecdotes to help us associate the course content with more relatable scenarios, as well as the way she brought up past content to help reinforce it.

  148. Priya Uka|Functional Tester|RCI Financial Services

    There was a lot of content to learn but I feel John went through it very well and willingly slowed down and went over content until everyone confirmed they understood.
    Breaks were given at good intervals which helped everyone come back ready to absorb more content

  149. Chad Bradshaw|Test Analyst|Elecosoft

    Very good – was able to stay focused and information was explained in a simple and clear way.

  150. John Smith|Software tester|Apteco Ltd

    High intensity, a lot of info being delivered. Excellent verbal presentation by tutor.
    Sample questions convoluted and poorly written – not a reflection of TSG or Rosie!
    Very pleased I had someone walking me through the material.
    Rosies ability to explain answers not initially understood didn’t quite hit the mark for me. I was looking for a ‘recipe’ of how to approach the question and quickly decipher it’s meaning. Personally that wasn’t always what I received, and I felt one or two explanations for others failed to offer a different way of saying what was said originally. If there was an area to improve on, then that is the only one I could identify.

  151. Julia Steinberg

    I really enjoyed the course – the material was presented excellently and was very thouroughly explained. It was engaging and I felt like it has helped me tremendously in understanding the basics of testing and how to adhere to best practices.
    Thank you very much, John, for the great experience!

  152. George SPEDDING|SENIOR TEST MANAGER|MOD

    INTENSIVE COURSE BUT WELL PRESENTED

  153. Chris Webber|Test Analyst|LV Insurance

    John really was an excellent tutor. Patient, knowledgeable, kind, able to simplify and demonstrate complex subjects with ease. I really think he made all the difference and I feel lucky that he was our tutor. The course itself was very well structured & I felt like I learnt a lot in a short space of time.

  154. Ramesa Khan|Junior QA Engineer|O2

    Really good, john interacted very well and made it very easy to understand

  155. Jim McGrellis|QA & Test|Telefonica UK

    The course content and trainer were good, the course was very intensive and a lot to take in.

    Due to covid it was delivered virtually, which is not my preferred method of learning, I would have preferred a classroom based course for something as intensive and involved as this course, but understand the reasoning behind this due to the current circumstances. Thanks

  156. Zahra Jaffer|Junior Test Analyst|IRIS Software Group

    The course was quite complex but I felt that John explained everything in a very clear and concise manner so that it was understandable. I am very pleased with the training and the resources that have been given to me, I feel as though I have learnt a huge amount. A lot of this goes to the trainer as he took the time out to answer our questions and give us better examples and techniques for the exam.

  157. Kumud Ranjan|Associate Manager|Accenture

    Great trainer. Explain the every bit with the example which really help to understand the concept and always happy to assist.

  158. Wayne Francis|Test Analyst|MHRA

    Enjoyed the course and John helped me to understand the trickier parts. only wish I could take his brain whilst doing the exam.

  159. Toby Brown|QA Engineer|Telefonica UK

    I found this online course much better than expected. Content was very thorough and well-presented. John Young gave great explanations to queries throughout. As a trainer he’s very patient and willing to get to the bottom of any questions that you have. He’s also easy to listen to and understand.

  160. Daniel Taylor Jr|V&V Test Engineer|Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine

    Great content, and very interesting

  161. Lihuan Li|IT Specialist|IBM

    It was difficult on both sides due to having to work from a ppt presentation all day. Both from a feedback to the trainer who couldn’t see out faces and for ourselves. BUT we were allocated breaks to avoid screen eyes and this was much appreciated. Generally well taught. We were just surprised that a large part of the course involved exam technique. Exam technique was extremely useful. I’m not very good at working and doing homework from PDFs so plan to print off the course work and review that way before the exam.

  162. Ben Poore|Senior Test Analyst|Quilter

    John kept everyone engaged over the 3 day course and made sure that everyone understood the material before moving on. This is difficult to do via a video conference but was successfully achieved by John.

  163. Kate Brewer-Lee|Test Lead|IBM

    It was good, but I’d prefer to have it in 4 to 5 days instead of 3. It is a lot of content to cover in only 3 days.

  164. Madelaine Helleur O’Connor | Graduate Data and Technology Consultant | KPMG

    Paul was so lovely and helpful. He went through the course with good pace and detail and was always willing to help and explain things in more detail

  165. Luke Shuttleworth | Graduate Trainee | KPMG

    Hard to say since I have not yet taken the exam but I thought the course was very well delivered, the trainer was excellent and friendly.

  166. Emly Hughes | Analyst | KPMG

    Angelina was very engaging and friendly. Explained things well and very happy to go over things that were confusing us. I feel I have learned a lot.

  167. Chris Pizey | Consultant | KPMG

    Engaging content but seems like there is a huge amount of it to process in very little time for the examination.

  168. Lucy Briggs | Graduate Trainee | KPMG

    I thought the course was well run and everything was explained thoroughly.

  169. Sandra Obi | Data and Tech Consultant | KPMG

    The instructor was amazing, cheerful and very relatable. Literally one of the best online courses.

  170. Thomas Gallagher | Data & Tech Analyst | KPMG

    Very good course still felt very crammed but that is the nature of the course. Some the presentation slides could be presented more formally and concisely to take the key messages away. Trainer was very knowledge not only on content but also test conditions. Trainer also had good knowledge in how to tailor the course to our needs.

  171. Daniel Taylor Jr |V&V Test Engineer | Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine

    Great content, and very interesting

  172. Keise Marcelino | Business Analyst | Arum Systems Limited

    It was good, but I’d prefer to have it in 4 to 5 days instead of 3. It is a lot of content to cover in only 3 days.

  173. Debbie Finister | System Software Tester | British Library

    Great course and trainer. Because the course was online, it was split into manageable sessions. Plenty on interaction with trainer and participants. It is hard work, but it’s worth it.

  174. Simon Ward|Senior Technical Tester/Manager|Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office

    The course was good and Angelina was kind and helpful. I do feel, and I think I speak for everyone on the course is that there is so much to cram in to 3 days, so I think it would be beneficial if it was a day longer, at least.

  175. Rebecca MacPherson|Correspondence Analyst|Quilter

    Very Intensive but just about hung on!

  176. Nicholas Hammond|Test Analyst|A2Dominion

    The course was well presented

  177. Sophie Pearson | PTP Business Analyst | Old Mutual Wealth

    Very informative, John was super helpful

  178. Ali Hussain | Software Test Analyst | HRA

    I found the course to be very good with great detail. I would definitely say it was worth attending.

  179. Muhammed Rizwan Muhammed Ismail|Test Program Manager|IBM

    The course was concise and at a good pace for a new tester like myself. I thoroughly enjoyed it and was happy with the level of depth that Angelina was going into for each section.

  180. Mark Cabia-an|Software Test Engineer|Mirada-Medical

    Lots of extremely valuable information which I can already feel seeping into my mindset and way of working. Course leader was incredibly engaged throughout and there is an impressive amount of information for just three days. I would recommend this to other testers.

  181. Claire Ray|Test Engineer|Sainsburys

    Course was on lines were engaged and checked understanding well

  182. Ben Poore | Senior Test Analyst | Quilter

    John kept everyone engaged over the 3 day course and made sure that everyone understood the material before moving on. This is difficult to do via a video conference but was successfully achieved by John.

  183. Louise Hewett | Ux and Test Analyst | Quilter

  184. Nicholas Hammond | Test Analyst | A2Dominion

    The training course was excellent

  185. Will Blakeney | Apprentice Software Tester | HMRC

    John was very helpful in explaining everything I needed to learn for the ISTQB exam, he was also very friendly and approachable. I was initially a bit worried about the remote learning, but John made the change from classroom learning to remote learning very easy.

  186. Sanchita Das

    I’m very pleased about the course. Instructor was excellent, he explained every bit very clearly. I have passed my ISTQB Foundation Level exam successfully

  187. ???? TOURSIDOU | IT Consultant | European Dynamics

    It was an online course due to the corona lock-down. The presentation was very good and the trainer spoke very clearly and was very friendly. However, there was no interaction between the participants and the trainer. Furthermore, we could not take exercises in teams. Hence my preference is training in a class.
    In my opinion, online training should be distributed over time. For example, once a week an online course and then prepare a task. The online exam also is not very comfortable. I prefer a written exam. Please in the next online exams allow the use of a notepad or sheet of paper. It’s not very convenient to write on an online notepad

  188. Eftychia Nalpantidou | Java Developer | European Dynamics

    The course was quite interesting and the extra material was really helpful and adequate.

  189. Panagiotis Omiliadis | Software Tester | European Dynamics SA

    The trainer showed that she had the knowledge, but it was a little bit monotone. Some more examples and a little bit richer explanation would have been great.

  190. Pranay Patel | Business Solutions Programmer | Euroclear

    Overall, it was a very pleasant experience and I think John managed the course very well. He set a strong, consistent pace and explained all the content very well as well. I think the course content was a little heavier to understand towards the end of the first day and the first half of the second, especially as I have not had any experience in testing, which made it slightly harder to retain the theory.

  191. Andreas Zimnas | Senior Software Engineer / Technical Manager | European Dynamics

    Rosie did an excellent job, giving us also the information we needed to successfully complete the examination.

  192. Stamatis Tzatzakis | Software Tester | European Dynamics

    Course was very good. However, exams with Proctor Exam was horrible.

  193. Garifalia Koinari | Software Developer | European Dynamics

    Course was very good.

  194. Konstantina Zioga | Software Tester | European Dynamics SA

    The course was very interesting. However I believe that such trainings should be taught with physical presence. It was the first time I had online training, and I realize how much I missed the personal interaction with the trainer, and the communication during the lesson with my colleagues. I know this training was offered via internet due to the situation. I hope the level ISTQB level to be organised in a classroom. Rosie was of course there in order to solve our concerns and questions, but I feel it would be nice if she could see us shaking our head for a “yes” when she was asking questions. Regarding with the exams, personally I disagree with the fact that we were not allowed to have a paper. It was time consuming. Also, it would be better to have a 5-min practice in the exam environment, to see how it behaves. I had many times interruptions due to the demand to refresh the screen share.
    Extra comment: In homework sample questions, in page 41 the question 55 has a typo. Instead of answer “A”, it says “D”

  195. Panagiotis Omiliadis | IT Software Tester | European Dynamics SA

    Although the trainer showed that she had a good knowledge of the course, and tried to make it interesting with comments in between, it was somehow monotone, so sometimes it was difficult to follow the trainer. Some more examples would have been helpful.

  196. Irina Crump

    The course was virtual (because of the Covid-19). However I didn’t have any problem connecting to it. John Young is a brilliant trainer, he has examples for everything and his drawing really helps. Thank you John, much appreciated.

  197. Megan Agalewatte | Graduate Trainee | KPMG

    I did not receive any pre-reading however the trainer Rosie was amazing

  198. Daniel Lubarski | Graduate Trainee | KPMG

    Excellent organisation, resources and time management

  199. Cheryl Wigfall | QA Test Analyst | Switch Studios

    Rosie explains and teaches very clearly and througly

  200. Hannah Holmes

    Rosie was very good made it clear and relatable

  201. Andrew Green | Capita

    Interesting course, glad I attended it, fills in the gaps of knowledge. I believe it’s useful for testing and appropriate to learn

  202. Nicole Anton | Data and Tech Consultant |KPMG

    The trainer was excellent and the course was well delivered. However we could have done with a longer timeframe to complete the course.

  203. Manisha Arora | Tech Consultant |KPMG

    The trainer was excellent, however we could have more preperation time and study time

  204. Rebecca Barosi | Graduate Trainee | KPMG

    Trainer was great!! I think there needs to be a separate day for exam and learning days

  205. Nicola Mcdermott| Graduate Trainee | KPMG

    Training was excellent would of liked more exercises and homework though.

  206. Ayao Akin| Graduate Trainee | KPMG

    Trainer was excellent, would of liked the content to be spread over more days.

  207. Kate Hawkins | Graduate Trainee | KPMG

    The teacher was excellent!! Quite a lot of information to process in such a short space of time, a extra day would be preferable.

  208. Chris Rose | KPMG

    Trainer was excellent, would of preferred a longer timescale but this is restricted by KPMG

  209. Edward Rainbow | Operations Consultant | Savanta

    I attended the course to gain knowledge of software / IT Workings / Testing and to gain a qualification in the process. The course met all my objectives and the trainer was excellent

  210. Usman Ali

    I did an ISTQB Tester Foundation course with TSG and the entire experience was amazing.

  211. Alexandra Gonce | QA | Amelco Ltd

    I attended this course to learn about the foundation of testing and to become a better tester. I was very satisfied with the course and it met all my objectives. The trainer Angelica was excellent.

  212. Wayne Joseph | QA Analyst | Creative Technologies

    I attended this course to fill in my knowledge gap. I was very satisifed with the course which met all my objects. The course tutor was excellent

  213. Josh strain| Senior Test Manager|Telefonica UK

    Great to learn the basics and fundamentals of software testing

  214. Julia Steinberg

    I really enjoyed the course – the material was presented excellently and was very thouroughly explained. It was engaging and I felt like it has helped me tremendously in understanding the basics of testing and how to adhere to best practices.

    Concise, a little overwhelming but great overall

  226. Will Blakeney|Apprentice Software Tester|HMRC

    Appreciated having classroom, homework and mock exam exercises. Another mock exam booklet would also be useful to consolidate learning.

  227. Thomas Gallagher|Data & Tech Analyst|KPMG

    John was very helpful in explaining everything I needed to learn for the ISTQB exam, he was also very friendly and approachable. I was initially a bit worried about the remote learning, but John made the change from classroom learning to remote learning very easy.

    I was very pleased with the virtual delivery of this course. The course ran seamlessly and was very well structured. John clearly has high expertise in this area and is very experienced in teaching. His teaching style is great – very supportive and thorough in his explanation of theory and in answering follow up questions. The virtual classes are a good solution to the current restrictions on learning and I would recommend.

  239. Idris Khan|Senior QA|Camelot UK

  240. Emily Hughes|Analyst|KPMG

    Angelina was very engaging and friendly. Explained things well and very happy to go over things that were confusing us. I feel I have learned a lot.

  241. Chris Pizey|Consultant|KPMG

    Engaging content but seems like there is a huge amount of it to process in very little time for the examination.

  242. Charalampos Saltsidis|IT Consultant|European Dynamics

    Pros

    Good preparation with additional mock test.
    Most of the exam questions had already been explained by Rosie during the course.

    Cons

    I fully understand the difficulties of a remote course, however I think that the course should be more interactive. Otherwise, it ends up being boring.
    For homework and classroom exercises, I would expect that we discussed all of them, regardless of whether we mentioned that we have questions or not.

  243. Brian Morris|Automation Engineer|Mirada Medical Ltd

    Angelina represents both TSG and the ISTQB exceptionally well. I am traditionally a sceptic to courses, but in 3 days I have changed that bias – primarily from the depth of knowledge Angelina imparted during the course. Not only is the course material covered comprehensively, but she delivers it in an interactive way that relates back to our own working environments. Modern testing practise may mean different things to different companies / testers, and it is clear Angelina has experience across the whole testing realm, including the real-world team dynamics which make/break the process. Three days remote could be tough work for most trainees, but the continuous flow of new information, delivered in bitesize chunks kept the momentum / enthusiasm working in the team. I feel this is not an easy task to achieve – and this presents additional value that I have not experienced on other courses / other tutors. As a final note, I feel Angelina is genuinely passionate about testing, and is therefore open to healthy debate on the topic (from challenging students like myself). For those reasons : “Excellent” rating above.

  244. Ali Hussain|Software Test Analyst Level 1|HRA

    I found the course to be very good with great detail. I would definitely say it was worth attending.

  245. Alex Harman|Product Delivery Analyst|Liverpool Victoria

    Very good course. Was kept interested throughout the course.

    John was engaging and patient. While I know this slightly frustrated one of my colleagues who had no problem keeping up, I could tell that others really appreciated it, as he would make any confusing rationale clear.
