Software Testing Certification Boot Camp

3 Days

Description

It's rare that someone in a software testing role has a long list of testing-related educational credentials on their resume and currently, there are no undergraduate degree programs in the United States that offer a specialization in software testing. Often this is because most people don't target a career in testing; they either use it as a stepping stone, or they fall into it from some other place. Regardless of why you're in testing, or how long you've been testing, chances are your path into testing and your relevant experience are different from your contemporaries within your own project team or organization, or even your affiliated industry. Whether you're trying to validate what you know, fill gaps in your specific experience, or get a broad overview of testing topics because you're new to testing, there's something for everyone in the ISTQB Certified Tester Foundation Level Syllabus.

At the conclusion of this software testing certification training course you will have the opportunity to take the ISTQB™ Certified Tester – Foundation Level exam. The exam is held on the third day of the course. The ISTQB™ Certified Tester – Foundation Level certification exam is independently administered by the American Software Testing Qualifications Board, Inc. (ASTQB).

Note: Students who attend a live online delivery of this course will not take the exam in class, however, they will still receive an exam voucher at the completion of the course.
