ISTQB – Software Testing Certification

As I explained in my last post on CSTE and promised to write about ISTQB, here I am with the relevant information.

ISTQB stands for “International Software Testing Qualifications Board’ and is a very new player in software testing certification arena and is a brain child of Rex Black, one of the known figures in software testing world. The mission and goals of this organization can be found at

They offer “ISTQB Certified Tester” which is gradually gaining ground. Indian chapter is managed by ‘Indian Testing Board” which is primarily run by ‘Vipul Kocher’ (an old colleague at Adobe India 🙂 ) who is running his own company called “Pure Testing”.

The exam details can be found on the following web site viz. “Indian Testing Board” and if you have more questions then let them come my way and I would try to get answers. One of the core group members of this board viz. Rahul Vishwaroop is an old friend and still works at Adobe.

I planned to write more but guess this much seems sufficient.
