Chiefly for students interested in IT who wish to work in software testing within the IT sector, or are already working in that field. Senior and medior software testers are also welcome to participate, because the training summarizes the field of software testing very well, a lot of practical examples help the participants strengthen their knowledge and help them to prepare for the exam.

At least a basic knowledge of English since the course material is in English and you are also recommended to take the certification exam in English.

This course is also available in e-learning format!

Students of the course will learn about the theoretical background of software testing its various methodologies, following the official course material of the International Software Testing Qualification Board.

 

Masterfield Training Centre was the first training institution to be accredited by ISTQB 4.0 version, enabling us to hold official exam preparation courses. Besides teaching a lot of the theory and practice of software testing, this course also gives students the knowledge needed to pass the Certified Tester Foundation Level exam.

The success of our course is supported by the very high pass rate of our students. We are unique in Hungary in that any students failing the exam may retake our next Certified Tester Foundation Level course free of charge.
