Benefits of Certification
The International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB) is a non-proprietary organization that has granted nearly 700,000 certifications in more than 120 countries around the globe. This program is the only internationally-accepted certification for software testing accredited through its network of national boards.
ISTQB certification is designed for software professionals who need to demonstrate practical knowledge of the fundamental concepts of testing—test designers, test analysts, test engineers, test consultants, test managers, user acceptance testers, and developers—as well as those who need a basic understanding of software testing, such as project managers, quality managers, development managers, business analysts, IT directors, and management consultants.
CTFL certification is good in perpetuity. Once a professional has earned the certification, they retain the credentials even if the criteria are updated. In addition, CTFL holders with verifiable experience can extend their certification with the ISTQB's Advanced-Level certifications or qualify their competencies in agile testing, security testing, test automation, and more.
