Certification is recognised as the essential measurement to prove knowledge of the fundamental principles of testing techniques for those making a career in testing. Senior executives have realised that major IT Projects cannot be successfully implemented without a committed and enthusiastic testing team. Increasing demand for qualified personnel means that proof of knowledge is now vital for employers. Our Foundation Certificate in Software Testing is based upon the foundation level syllabus published by the International Software Quality Testing Board (ISTQB) and offers an internationally recognised qualification in software testing.

The Foundation Certificate introduces a wide range of testing activities and concepts. In addition to covering theory, the course has a range of exercises in which attendees can practice the testing techniques and a number of interactive learning elements.

To prepare attendees for the certification exam there are frequent review questions, example examination questions, and homework exercises.
