Overview

ISTQB® (International Software Testing Qualifications Board) has defined the 'ISTQB® Certified Tester' scheme that has become the world-wide leader in the certification of competences in software testing. This four day instructor-led course includes a combination of tutorials, exercises and practical work, as well as exam preparation.

The examination is held at an agreed later date, so allowing adequate time for revision. It is fully-accredited by BCS/UKTB on behalf of ISTQB and has been rated SFIAplus level 5 by the BCS. It is based on the latest 2012 syllabus from the ISTQB, with many real world practical examples.
