ISTQB® - International Software Testing Qualifications Board
The certificate „ISTQB Certified Tester“ has meanwhile become a standard proof of qualification of software testers across all industries
The umbrella organisation „International Software Testing Qualification Board“ (ISTQB) now includes professionals from well over 40 countries who work on high quality standards and the further development of the scheme throughout the year.
Therefore, for many software testers, ISTQB certification is an important milestone on their career path to prove their qualifications independently.
The certificate is explicitly requested in many job advertisements.
how can you prepare for the exam?
There are several ways to prepare for the examination on the way to a successful final assessment:
Self-study based on qualified specialist literature
Attending a training course from accredited training providers
Each software tester should decide for himself what experience he or she already has and how much interaction with other software testing professionals and an experienced teacher he or she needs to manage the exam preparation properly.
Even though many learning aids and exercises for the ISTQB exam can be found on the Internet , questions that are difficult to answer on their own remain open for the selection of the right answers. For this purpose, trainings offer a good forum to exchange experiences and best practices and to get good tips for the preparation of the exams.
