Get Ready for the Next Step Up: Test Manager
Congratulations to New Test Manager

Hope to Become a Test Manager? 

You've been testing software for a while, and now you would like to become a test lead or manager. How do you do it?

Consider these two questions: 
  • What do you need to know to become a test manager?
  • How can you prove you are ready for promotion?
ISTQB Test Manager Certification is the answer to both questions. The syllabus (body of knowledge) tells you what you need to know, and passing the exam proves you are ready.
ISTQB Test Manager is among the most popular certifications from ASTQB for good reason: it helps you get promoted!
Passing the exam proves you are ready, but it requires preparation. ASTQB has resources that can help you get ready for this next big step in your career: 
  • Get great tips from a veteran test manager in the ASTQB podcast, "10 Takeaways for Becoming and Being a Test Manager." It gives you decades of insight in just 30 minutes. 
  • Discover why you shouldn't be afraid of advanced certifications, and learn some helpful preparation tips.
  • Download the ISTQB Test Manager free syllabus and practice exams from our website.
  • While you can study on your own for this advanced level certification, some people also find it helpful to take a class from one of our Accredited Software Testing Training Providers in preparation for this exam. (No matter how you study, be sure to take your exam through ASTQB and AT*SQA so you can appear on the Official U.S. List of Certified & Credentialed Testers™ and earn points toward your Testing Tiers® level. We'll also add you to the ISTQB Successful Candidate Register.)
