Why Consultants Choose ISTQB

Get the power of certification: As a consultant, ISTQB software testing certification helps you to stand apart from your competition.

It could even make the difference in whether you are even considered for a project, as some insurance rates are qualified based on whether the company utilizes ISTQB Certified software testers.  If you are ISTQB Certified, and your competition is not, you might be much more likely to be awarded the project (see below). And certainly, keeping your clients’ software out of the headlines is always better for your business.
