ISTQB Foundation Course + Exam
ISTQB Foundation Certification
The updated ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course has been updated recently and includes the fundamental principles of software testing and different testing terminology and techniques. The course covers the learning objectives and prepares the candidates for their certification exam on the third day of the course. The course fee includes the ISTQB official certification exam cost.
ISTQB Foundation Certification provides essential skills and knowledge needed to work as a software testing professional. The ISTQB foundation certificate in software testing is the entry-level certification, designed for people entering the field and for experienced practitioners wishing to start moving up the ladder of ISTQB advanced level certifications.
The goals of ISTQB certification are to ensure a broad understanding of the fundamental best practices and key concepts in software testing and to provide a foundation for professional growth. ISTQB (International Software Testing Qualifications Board) is accountable for the ISTQB qualification assessment. ISTQB Certifications are designed to evaluate the knowledge of candidates in the area of software testing. We conduct the ISTQB certified tester computer-based exam through BCS and not the paper-based exam through ANZTB.
The hugely popular ISTQB software testing imparts the introductory experience of software testing. A thorough study of the evaluation program and the suggestions of terms are adequate to get ready for the Base Level testing.
The ISTQB Foundation syllabus is divided into six main parts.
