The ISQI CMAP Mobile App Testing - Foundation Level course is the basic course for testing mobile application software. We give you a first insight into this field and its peculiarities. The CMAP Mobile App Testing – Foundation Level is an entry level certification aimed at anyone involved in Mobile App Testing. The course is suitable for professionals involved in mobile app testing processes or for those who will be involved in the near future:
Software Testers and Developers
Software Development Managers
IT Directors and Management Consultants
Basic knowledge of concepts in software testing and practical experiences in IT projects may be helpful but is not required for a deeper understanding. It is recommended that the trainee holds a Foundation Level certificate as “ISTQB® Certified Tester” (CTFL) or has equivalent knowledge.

Go to in-house trainings
small learning groups
As a training participant, you of course benefit from learning in a group and the experience of the other participants. Yet to ensure that you get to pose all of your own questions, we keep the group sizes very small, with a maximum of 10 participants. This allows our coaches to make certain that we meet the needs of all participants, even if the participants’ levels of existing knowledge differ.
Our courses are guaranteed to take place from as few as three participants, and provide you with long-term planning certainty for your training activities.
printed teaching materials
Making notes, writing down questions, post-it notes with reminders for content that you want to return to later – not a problem at all, as we provide all the materials in printed format at your workstation. Even though we strongly advocate progressive technologies, we value the printed format when it comes to working in a learning environment and to course preparation and follow-up at home, in your hotel or back at your place of work.
printed certificate of participation
Gelegentlich musst Du Dein Wissen nicht nur am Arbeitsplatz unter Beweis stellen, sondern auch bei Institutionen oder Arbeitgebern vorlegen. Wir überreichen Dir am Kursende eine offizielle Teilnahmebestätigung für Deine Unterlagen.
fresh break-time snacks & a delicious lunch
We know that a sense of well-being helps you learn better. This is why we provide not only fresh knowledge, but also comprehensive catering during all breaks, with fresh and dried fruits, as well as other nerve-soothing foods ranging from nuts to biscuits. A lunch with all participants and our coaches is also a fixed part of our catering package.
hot and cold drinks
We ensure a limitless supply of hot and cold drinks throughout the duration of the course. So you can leave your thermos flask and water bottle at home, and let us serve you.
lean coffee or lean pizza event
Some of the course content requires further discussions and, when considered in-depth, throws up further questions which cannot be resolved within a normal training day. To this end, for all our 4- and 5-day courses we offer an in-depth session on one morning or evening, including catering. The participants jointly agree whether they would prefer to get up earlier or stay later, and which topics they would prefer to explore in greater depth with our coach in an informal atmosphere.
We offer free WIFI at all our training locations. To allow you to quickly get to work at our premises, let us know in advance of the course and we will provide you with access details and a password.
The DIN/ISO 17024 requirements stipulate that training companies cannot themselves provide the examination. An independent certification institute carries out the examination, not least to ensure the independent quality control of our training courses. We offer you the services of the certification institute so that you don’t incur the additional hassle of securing an examination appointment. We invoice the examination fee and organise your exam at the end of the course. You can simply focus on getting prepared.
In addition to their teaching work, all of our trainers have been and continue to be involved in projects, with each of them possessing more than 15 years of professional experience in various sectors. They have also all additionally acquired teaching qualifications. It is important to us not just to teach the training material, but also to enable each participant to enact what they have learned in the workplace. The point is for it to not feel superimposed, but instead for the acquired knowledge to be incorporated effortlessly into your own work.
We don’t hold with dilapidated offices that are unfit for running a business from but which are deemed good enough for a week’s training, and whose lack of light makes it easier to read the PPT slides. We know that a sense of well-being helps you learn better. That is why all our rooms are well-lit and have large windows. They feature a wealth of opportunities for creative development. Breaks are always spent outside the classrooms. After all, a change of scene is a key element to then being able to once more concentrate on the course content. And we of course also provide a sufficient supply of hot and cold drinks, as well as the necessary nerve-soothing snacks. Is there anything else we can help you with? Then please let us know! We make many things possible.
Whether it’s alone or in a group, as an open seminar with participants from several companies, or in-house with your own colleagues; whether standardised with certification exams, or tailored to your own professional practice – we provide the right training for a great variety of topics. Even if you wish to combine certain course content, want to put something special together for a distributed team, or are interested in tiered pricing and loyalty bonuses, please get in touch with us directly. We are experienced and flexible, and can offer all teaching programmes as virtual courses and in several languages. We are happy to provide you with an individually tailored offer – we just have to get to know you and your requirements.

Even if it feels like a holiday with us - our ISTQB® trainings in Berlin are recognized further education events for all Berlin employees.

The participation in the exam is optional. We assume that you take the exam after the training course. However, please inform us during the course booking if you wish NOT to attend the exam.
The exam lasts 60 minutes and takes place immediately after the seminar on the last training course day. We help you organising your participation in the exam. The independent certification body charges 250,00 Euro plus VAT for the examination, which we invoice together with the training course fee.
Our trainers optimally prepare you for the „ISQI CMAP Mobile App Testing – Foundation Level“ exam. For years, the number of our attendees passing the exam is above average. If you pass, you will become a member of the global community of more than 500,000 certified Testers from over 100 countries. The ISTQB® will soon release the Mobile App Certificates themselves.

Björn is the quality fanatic among our coaches. As the Managing Consultant of trendig technology services GmbH, he has over 15 years of experience in both English and German projects within agile as well as traditional organisations. His work continues to focus on software quality assurance, integrated technology and operations (ITOps), IT service management (ITIL), test management, test data management, test infrastructure management and mobile application testing in small-scale through to major projects. Björn has helped co-develop several training courses in areas including security engineering and mobile app testing, and, as a scrum master, is an experienced team teacher and popular coach. He has wide-ranging industry experience, from financial service providers and energy suppliers through to e-commerce, healthcare and online marketing providers. Björn also heads up our mobile app testing lab.
When Björn isn’t working as a coach and consultant, he likes to put on his hiking boots and set off for several weeks on tours of distant parts of Asia. No matter whether it’s gathering honey from wild bees or climbing in the Himalayas – Björn’s travel experiences are at least as special and varied as his experience gained during everyday working life, which he is happy to share with his course participants when coaching. Björn feels it is important that the training courses provide participants with lots of useful things they can apply in their work, and that they enjoy learning with and from one another.
To ensure this happens, it is important for the coach to occasionally put on the brakes, he says. That’s because too much detail can sometimes scare off those participants who first have to familiarise themselves with the subject matter. It is therefore important, says Björn, to be a human first, and a coach second.
