ISTQB Training Certificate

Who Should Learn ISTQB Training?

This course will be beneficial for those that are existing 

  • Test Analysts
  • Test Designers
  • Test Engineers
  • User Acceptance Testers
  • Quality Managers
  • Business Analysts
  • Test Consultants
  • Test Managers
  • Prepare candidates for the Certificate in Software Testing based on the ISTQB syllabus.
  • Conveys Common Practices for Software Testing.

As test manager and adjunct professor Marc Rene writes, “Certification across an organization gets all testers on the same playing field with terminology, approaches, methodology, and general testing principles. Certifications focus on foundational testing knowledge and sound testing practices. Furthermore, they allow all testers to have a shared understanding about the maturity .

  • Establishes a Framework for Skill Building.

There are many topics available for training in software testing, but which ones are best for the development of your team? The ISTQB certification program lays out a tree structure of training, with well–‐defined syllabi and learning objectives developed by international testing experts. The ISTQB syllabi forms a strong basis of topics and timings that can be applied at corporate and university levels.

  • Builds Credibility and Professionalism for Your Profile.
  • Has International Recognition and Consistency.

Many international companies are adopting ISTQB certification as a way to get consistent training of all their test teams worldwide on a common syllabus.

  • Transfers Practical Knowledge for Software Testing.
  • Learning the Subtleties of ISTQB Terminology and Approaches.

People who have been in the testing field for many years may understand topics from their experience and previous training. However, people with over 30 years experience have failed the CTFL exam – not because they lack knowledge, but because they lack the ISTQB perspective. Small details in understanding can make the difference between passing and failing the exam. The syllabi provides the learning objectives and what should be covered in a training course. They do not convey the knowledge behind the topical outline. That is where formal training comes into play.

  • Instructor Guidance and Feedback.

A good instructor will make sure all learning objectives are covered and that your questions are answered. With self-study, you are largely on your own. Terminology and process details are explained so the candidate will be able to understand the concepts and apply them on the job.

  • Focused Attention.

You are focused on the topic of software testing for a period of time. This is more than just reading a book. (Which, by the way, reading books on testing is something few testers do.

  • Making the Best Use of Your Exam Investment.

A candidate can re-take the exam at any time if they don’t pass. However, each exam sitting is 45,00 for the first time and 2500 for the rest of the times. With training, you have a much better chance of passing the exam, plus you get the benefit of testing training which can be used on the job for years to come.

  • Practical Application.

Any type of software testing training should include practical exercises to reinforce the key concepts. People only retain 50% of what they hear and see, but 90% of what we say and do, so we will have practical approach and discussions.
