The Model Based Testing Foundation course is suitable for those who are, or expect to be, working on project that require development and testing of data models. It is aimed at those who seek a practical application of the core software testing material covered at ISTQB Foundation level on all projects that work with data models.

The course is for Test Analysts, Test Team Leader, Data Modelers and all people who will be developing data models for testing and use in subsequent test automation.

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.

Entry Requirements

The recommended entry criteria for candidates taking the Model Based Testing Foundation course are as follows:

  • Have 18 months’ experience in software testing.
  • Hold the ISTQB Foundation in Software Testing certificate.

The Exam

To qualify as an internationally-recognized Certified Foundation Model Based Extension Level Tester and be issued with an ISTQB® Model Based Tester Foundation Extension Level Certificate, delegates must successfully pass the exam administered by the relevant National Board or Examination Provider.

  • The examination consists of a one-hour exam with 40 multiple choice questions.
  • It will be a ‘closed book’ examination i.e. no notes or books will be allowed into the examination room.
  • Duration of 60 minutes (or 75 minutes for candidates taking examinations that are not in their native language). The pass mark is 65% (26 out of 40).

Next Steps
