Description

Founded in 2002, ISTQB® (International Software Testing Qualifications Board) is a not-for-profit association comprising 47 national boards (including the UKTB) covering 71 countries worldwide.

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.
