Who are ISTQB?

12 June 2014

We recently announced a new ISTQB qualification to our portfolio of courses. The ISTQB Tester Foundation level gives an introduction to all aspects of software testing.

The ISTQB (International Software Testing Qualifications Board) offer many other software testing based qualifications including the ISTQB® Certified Tester scheme that has “become the worldwide leader in the certification of competences in software testing”.

The ISTQB certification structure is as follows:
- Foundation Level
- Advanced Level
- Full Advanced Level
- Expert Level

Knowledge of software development is tested through the theoretical Foundation Level course and exam, with a particular focus on software testing. The Advanced Level is a much more practical course that builds deeper understanding and skills in the specialist areas of Test Manager, Test Analyst and Technical Test Analyst. The Expert Level qualification goes into more intricate and specific detail of software testing.

ISTQB believe testing should be done in a ”conceptual ideal world” and so all their courses are carried out in this way. Delegates are given scenarios and problems to tackle within a mock-up environment to allow for genuine and real-time, learning and solutions. This style of learning also emphasises ISTQB’s ethos of helping software testers to be more efficient and effective in their work. Other values the company imposes onto delegates of their qualifications include professionalism and a Code of Ethics. By nature software testers can be privy to confidential information and this needs to be protected.

ISTQB regularly update their course content in-line with best industry practices and the most innovative research. Their certification structure ensures continuous learning, knowledge sharing, consistency.

If you would like to be part of this industry-leading organisation, sign up for an ISTQB qualification from TTS. It can help you get a jump-start on your software testing career or boost your current level of skills. Individuals and businesses alike will benefit from the specific content of our ISTQB courses.
