In the course students can learn about the characteristics of software testing in a model-based environment, as well as getting prepared to take the ISTQB Foundation Level - Model-Based Tester Extension exam.

For software testers working in a model-based environment or wishing to learn more about the subject.

Successful ISTQB Certified Tester Foundation Level exam or equivalent knowledge, as well as English language skills, as both the course material and the exam are in English. (The course is taught in Hungarian by a Hungarian trainer.)

Masterfield Training Centre was the first training institution in Hungary to be accredited by ISTQB, enabling us to hold official exam preparation courses. This course, besides placing the characteristics of software testing in a model-based environment, also prepares students to take the Model-Based Tester exam.


In the course, students get a comprehensive picture about model-based testing, which counts as a special subject not only in Hungary but also internationally. Besides exam preparation, we also place great emphasis on real-life tasks and examples in our course, helping students apply their newly gained skills later.
