Whether you are an experienced software tester or are considering a career change to software testing, ISTQB certification can give you a competitive edge and a true career path.
That’s not surprising, as certifications have been a favorite tool of information technology professionals for years. In fact, according to a CIO.com survey of 700 IT professionals, most say certifications have led to raises and better jobs.
In the profession of software testing, ISTQB certification is the most popular and fastest growing certification in the world, with more than 300,000 certified software testers in nearly 70 countries. Software testers choose ISTQB certification for three reasons:
- It makes you more competitive. If there were two equally-qualified candidates for a position in your company, and only one had ISTQB software testing certification, which candidate would you rather be?
- It gives you the flexibility to choose your education. We give away the syllabus (body of knowledge) that covers the exam topics, and let you choose the education. Take a course from an ASTQB-accredited trainer, or self-study using books and websites – it’s up to you. In addition, the Foundation Level certification doesn’t ever require recertification.
- It gives you a career path. As the world’s most popular software testing certification, ISTQB is recognized in nearly 70 countries, making you global-ready. As you progress in the software testing profession, ISTQB is ready with Advanced Level and Expert Level certifications that will give you the recognition you deserve.
