Why should everyone involved in software quality be certified in software testing?

Everyone involved in software quality should have the ISTQB Foundation Level at a minimum. ISTQB Foundation Level Certification improves efficiency and reduces communication errors because everyone who is certified will be using the same software testing language and principles. If you aren’t using the same software testing terminology, that can lead to confusion, errors, lost time, software defects, and lost revenue. That’s why many companies require that even their most experienced testers have ISTQB Foundation Level certification: it improves communication and saves money.

What is the best software testing certification, and where should we register for it?

ISTQB certification is the most recognized and popular software testing certification globally. You can take your ISTQB certification exam through ASTQB’s official ISTQB global exam provider, AT*SQA. AT*SQA offers ISTQB exam registration, ISTQB certificates, and inclusion on the ISTQB successful candidate register as well as the Official U.S. List of Certified Software Testers™.
