About ANZTB

 

Our Vision

To promote testing professionalism, supporting career growth and elevating the importance of testing and quality management practices.

Our Mission

ANZTB was constituted in Sydney in August 2005 as a non-profit organisation and a member of the International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB®).  It is the regional body representing and assisting software testing professionals in Australia and New Zealand.

The Board is comprised of local experienced professionals in software testing and quality engineering who volunteer their time to the development, maintenance and promotion of the ISTQB® Certified Tester.

The ANZTB mission is to generate public awareness of the economic and risk management benefits that professional software testing practices offer.  They enable their customers to develop their careers in line with trending industry demands.

In conjunction with the ISTQB®, the ANZTB is responsible for providing a consistent trusted accreditation system for the education and training of professional testers. Our Board develops, adopts and contributes to standards for software testing, training course development, and professional qualification.

Certification of testing professionals to the values and syllabi developed by ISTQB® is core to the services ANZTB provide.

We support members from all areas of the software delivery industry to uplift their skills, competency, knowledge of testing and instil discipline for quality engineering ways of working.

Through the extensive ANZTB network we facilitate collaboration between testing and quality professionals, learning through events and distribution of trending and topical information and articles.

The ANZTB offers:
• Accreditation and on-going audit of training providers to supply courses which meet the ISTQB® syllabi.
• Facilitation of certification of individuals according to ISTQB® criteria.
• Promotion of test engineering and management as a career path for IT professionals throughout Australasia.
• Enablement of access to both local and international experts to share their knowledge through organised events.

If you are interested in contributing to ANZTB in some way, please e-mail: info@anztb.org.
