Although I had passed the ISTQB Exam few years back, I have not been a very big fan of ISTQB Certification Exams. I am not going to debate whether any certification exam (including PMP, ITIL, CCNA, SCJP, MSCP, ISTQB, QTP, LoadRunner, BrainBench, CSTE) are good or bad. However, if you are interested in one such debate please see the following two links – http://www.testingexperience.com/testingexperience01_08_Black.pdf and http://www.satisfice.com/blog/archives/36

My only attempt here is to define what is ISTQB certification and how you can gain this certification. I must say, this has been one of the most popular certification exams for Software Testers. There are other better learning/skill improvement programs available in software testing and there are good software testing training courses. The choice however is yours.

The ISTQB was officially founded as an International Testing Qualifications Board in Edinburgh in November 2002 and it is responsible for the “ISTQB Certified Tester”, which is an international qualification scheme. ISTQB Certification is available in two stages, Foundation Level and Advanced Level.
