Krav och test ISTQB Certified Tester Foundation Level (CTFL) + exam

Established the International Software Testing Qualification Board (ISTQB) with, among other things, the goal of further internationalization and harmonization of test certification programs. There is now a fully globally harmonized and recognized ISTQB certification scheme.


This three-day accredited training course prepares you for the 'Foundation Certificate in Software Testing' exam and meets the requirements as set by ISTQB. You will learn about test principles & standards, test management, test phasing, reviews and inspections and test techniques for both white-box and black-box testing and test tools.


The Foundation Level qualification is aimed at anyone involved in software testing. This includes people in roles such as testers, test analysts, test engineers, test consultants, test managers, user acceptance testers and software developers.
