Certifications - ISTQB Software Tester

ISTQB logo

Are you looking for an internationally recognized certification in software testing? Delivered by top experts in the testing industry, the Coveros accredited certification training program prepares you for the ISTQB® certification exams. The International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB) is a non-proprietary organization that has granted more than 500,000 certifications in more than 100 countries around the globe. 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. This program is the only internationally-accepted certification for software testing accredited through its network of national boards.

ISTQB Foundation Level Certification Courses
Software Tester Certification—Foundation Level is an accredited training course designed to help you prepare for the ISTQB Certified Tester—Foundation Level (CTFL) exam. Foundation Level 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.

Recently, the ISTQB released a new Certified Tester Foundation Level (CTFL) syllabus. While the fundamental principles and best practices of testing remain, a number of areas have been updated to take into account modern industry trends. However, CTFL certification is good in perpetuity. Once a professional has earned the certification, they retain the credentials even if the criteria are updated. Read our CTFL2018 FAQs.

Holders of the Foundation Level certificate are also eligible to continue on to advanced-level software testing qualifications and to qualify their competencies in agile testing.
