9. What is the ISTQB®?

The International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB®) is a governing body for software testing. Their purpose is to support a single, universally accepted, international qualification scheme for software and system testing professionals, by providing the core syllabi and by setting guidelines for the exams which are set by the regional/national boards. The certificate is called "ISTQB® Certified Tester". 

The contents of each syllabus are taught as courses by training providers that have been accredited by regional/national boards. Guidelines for accreditation are set by the ISTQB® so each accredited course is recognised by every regional/national board.  The ISTQB® is composed of representatives from each existing national board, such as the ANZTB and ISEB.

Working parties within the ISTQB® are responsible for developing and maintaining the Foundation and Advanced Level syllabi.   As with the ANZTB, all members are volunteers.  ISTQB website click here
