About ISTQB and the 'Certified Tester' Scheme. Founded in 2002, ISTQB (International Software Testing Qualifications Board) is a not-for-profit association legally registered in Belgium, comprising 47 national boards (including the UKTB) covering 71 countries worldwide. ISTQB has defined the Foundation certification as part of their 'Certified Tester' scheme that, with over 200,000 certifications, has become the de facto world-wide standard for software testing qualifications.
- The 'Certified Tester' scheme: provides a set of professional qualifications widely-recognised by employers, customers and peers;
- enables software suppliers to hire and train certified testers and thereby gain commercial advantage over their competitors by
- advertising their tester recruitment and development policies; and enables comparison of testing skills across different countries, testers to move across country borders more easily, and multi-national/international projects to have a common understanding
- of testing issues.
