Model-based testing is an innovative testing approach to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the test process. A model-based tester on a project uses models to drive test analysis and design, and keeps advantage of the models for other testing activities, such as test implementation and reporting.

ISTQB Model-based Tester certification complements the core foundation level as a specialist module. It provides a practical and easy entry to the MBT approach.

ISTQB MBT Learning Objectives

Certified model-based testers should be able to demonstrate their skills in the following areas:

  • Objectives and motivations for model-based testing
  • Activities specific to MBT and essential MBT artifacts
  • Integrating MBT into the software development lifecycle
  • MBT modeling (good practices, languages, types of MBT models)
  • Test selection criteria used in model-based testing
  • MBT test implementation and execution
  • Evaluating and deploying an MBT Approach
