ISTQB Specialty Certifications: The Popular Way to Take the Next Step in Your Career

With so many career-boosting options among the ISTQB specialty certifications, which is best for you? ISTQB Test Automation Engineering certification continues to be one of ASTQB's most popular exams. It might even be the next great certification to build your knowledge and career path.  

Test Automation Engineering certification is aimed at people who wish to build on the knowledge and skills acquired at the Foundation Level and further their expertise. A test automation engineer has a broad knowledge of testing in general and an in-depth understanding of test automation.

Test automation engineers must have sufficient knowledge of both theory and practice to be able to influence the direction that an organization takes when designing, developing, and maintaining test automation solutions for functional tests. ISTQB Test Automation Engineering certification is how you prove you have that knowledge.

ISTQB Foundation Level is the entry point to software testing, not the endpoint. If you stop with just Foundation Level, you could quickly be passed by other testers (see the recent Testing Tiers® points gainers) and fall behind on software QA best practices.

How do you keep your testing skills sharp after Foundation Level? We highlighted Test Automation Engineering above, but there are lots of testing skill areas that are growing in popularity, so it can be difficult to decide!

That's why we created the software testing road map. It makes it easy to visualize your career path and learn about the different testing skill options. See the full version of the software testing road map. Then read the short descriptions and click on a type of testing that interests you. It's easy and is the first step toward future-proofing your career.
