Software testing certifications enable professionals to demonstrate that they are well-versed in best practices, processes and approaches to commonly used testing concepts. The ISTQB® (International Software Testing Qualifications Board) qualification scheme offers a 3-level certification scheme for professional testers, starting with Foundation Level and proceeding to Advanced and Expert Level. The ISTQB®Certified Tester scheme has become widely accepted as the world-wide leader in the certification of competences in software testing.
The Foundation Level qualification is well suited to IT or business people who would like to start a career as a software tester, or to testers with basic experience who wish to build upon and solidify their testing knowledge and skills. KnowledgeHut’s training program adopts a practical, hands-on approach, and covers the fundamental topics that every system and software tester should know.
