Who is the 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

ISTQB® was established in 1998 and its Certified Tester scheme has grown to be the leading software testing certification scheme worldwide. ISTQB® continues to strive to meet its vision and mission to support the testing community and promote software quality.

ISTQB® established, and continues to evolve, the internationally recognised Certified Tester scheme which is a portfolio of certifications that develop, extend, and validate testing skills. The scheme is built around syllabi created by a global network of experts, the ISTQB® Glossary, sample exams, and the Testing Body of Knowledge (TBOK).

The Certified Tester Foundation Level certification provides testing professionals with essential terminology and a breadth of knowledge. It is the prerequisite to the other modules within the scheme which offer depth and specialization.

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.
