Our course prepares attendees for the ISTQB Automotive Software Tester exam, going into detail on the characteristics of automotive software testing, including numerous examples and tasks.

Mainly for software developers, testers and integrators working in the automotive industry.

ISTQB Certified Tester Foundation Level exam or equivalent knowledge. Moreover, it is a plus if a student has a basic knowledge of the car industry, as well as an intermediate level of English at least as both the course material and the certification exam are in English.

Our course, which is special in the world, deals with the methodology, background, planning, implementing, techniques, metrics, risks and further development of automotive testing, in line with the recommendations of ISTQB. Besides exam questions we also place great emphasis on real-life examples and tasks related to automotive testing. The course is vendor and device independent, we do not do any exercises on the computer.
