The ISTQB was founded in 2002 and is a not-for-profit association comprising 47 national boards (including the UKTB) covering 71 countries all over the world.

The ISTQB has defined the ISTQB Advanced Test Analyst 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.

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.

Our ISTQB Advanced Test Analyst Online (180 Days) training course will give you the understanding of testing acquired at Foundation Level to enable the role of Test Analyst to be performed.
