Quality software is something that all organisations need and expect.
Software testing is fast becoming a pivotal global industry as organisations around the world increase their demand for certified IT professionals able to test ever more complex systems. We understands the critical role that software testers play in delivering IT that is reliable and effective.
Leading organisations, whilst recognising the need for every person to be accountable for embedding quality in what they do, are investing in the development and recruitment of quality professionals whose core skills, focus and responsibility lies in ensuring the implementation of reliable, risk-free, efficient and effective computer-based business systems.
For this reason, BCS has harnessed the experience and expertise of the leaders in the field to provide testers around the world with a means to enhance their skills and demonstrate their credentials. The Institute’s software testing certification draws on internationally accepted best practice and provides an insight into the different types of testing, and the techniques and tools used to carry out and manage testing. The levels are structured to support career progression; following the foundation level, our intermediate certificate provides a valuable learning path to the advanced level.
The Foundation level qualification is appropriate for anyone who wants a basic understanding of software testing, such as project managers, quality managers, software development managers, business analysts, IT directors and management consultants. Holders of the Foundation Certificate will be able to go on to a higher level software testing qualification.
The certificate is the next level of competency in software testing after the Foundation level and covers everything required by the BCS syllabus, with the emphasis on helping delegates to understand, remember and apply knowledge and applicable skills.
Achieving a pass in this certificate provides evidence that the candidate has proven analytical ability, having gained knowledge and practical skills in the key topics required for practising software testing.
