ISTQB® Certified Tester – Foundation Level 2018 Syllabus

The aim of this training course is to provide you with the basic knowledge and skills, & to prepare you for the exam certifying you as an ISTQB® Certified Tester – Foundation Level.


Most organisations require ISTQB® certification as a minimum skill requirement for software testers and therefore fundamental when applying for roles. In this course, you will use a standardised approach to software testing that will be immediately applicable to your projects.

In order to attain the certification you will be required to pass a 60-minute exam. Our trainers will fully prepare you by employing scenarios that mirror the exam questions in a mock exam session, and by focusing the three day course delivery with a balance of theory and practice.
