Developed and delivered by leading experts in the testing industry, Software Tester Certification—Foundation Level is an accredited training course to prepare you for the ISTQB Certified Tester—Foundation Level (CTFL) exam. Certification demonstrates a knowledge of software testing and is based on a Body of Knowledge and examination guidelines that are applied consistently across the world. It focuses on test concepts and techniques that can apply to all software projects, including agile projects, other types of iterative and incremental lifecycles, and in sequential lifecycles.

Going above and beyond the ISTQB syllabus, this course provides practical knowledge you can apply now. In addition to the fundamentals of software testing, you also learn about the psychology of testing, test and review process, black-box test methods, white-box testing, experienced-based testing, test monitoring and metrics, the benefits and risks of test automation, and more. Gain the basic skills required of a software test professional and learn how testing adds significant value to software development projects.

Who Should Attend?
This course is appropriate for individuals new to software testing, developers and analysts expected to test within agile teams, and test/QA professionals seeking ISTQB certification in software testing (CTFL). Common job functions include testers, test engineers, QA professionals, test managers, project leaders, quality analysts, and more.

Benefits of Certification
The International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB) is a non-proprietary organization that has granted nearly 700,000 certifications in more than 120 countries around the globe. This program is the only internationally-accepted certification for software testing accredited through its network of national boards. 

ISTQB certification is designed for software professionals who need to demonstrate practical knowledge of the fundamental concepts of testing—test designers, test analysts, test engineers, test consultants, test managers, user acceptance testers, and developers—as well as those who need a basic understanding of software testing, such as project managers, quality managers, development managers, business analysts, IT directors, and management consultants.

CTFL certification is good in perpetuity. Once a professional has earned the certification, they retain the credentials even if the criteria are updated.  In addition, CTFL holders with verifiable experience can extend their certification with the ISTQB's Advanced-Level certifications or qualify their competencies in agile testing, security testing, test automation, and more.

ASTQB Proficiency Distinction™
ASTQB Proficiency Distinction courses are accredited to include intensive, well defined, hands-on interactive exercises based on realistic scenarios. These exercises must go above and beyond what is required by ISTQB so that candidates are exposed to the concepts in a deep and meaningful way.
