The future of software testing: the role of the tester in an AI-driven world

Software testing is undergoing a revolutionary change with artificial intelligence (AI) at the forefront. Gone are the days when AI was just a future concept. Today, it is a dynamic force leading to a new chapter in software development.
AI introduces new ways and tools that can improve testing in many ways such as bug prediction which allows the tester to focus on other, more important testing tasks.
The ISTQB AI Testing Certification is a gateway to the future of software testing. It covers testing systems that contain AI, but also how to use AI in your testing

Why choose training provider and a course that is accredited by ISTQB?

An ISTQB accredited training provider is someone who has extensive knowledge and experience in testing and can provide additional insight into test terminology and syllabus content to facilitate the achievement of ISTQB certification.
A course from an ISTQB-accredited training provider guarantees that the content covers all sections and parts according to the Syllabus and is therefore a good basis for your ISTQB examinations. The teacher is also certified, has knowledge of the current course and also has pedagogical skills.

To be able to participate in some ISTQB examinations it is required that you are certified on ISTQB Foundation Level, or equivalent. See more under Examination. That certificate (or copy) must be presented to the invigilator before the exam. 

If you have lost your certificate you can get a new one from the Exam Provider that certified you. If SSTB was your Exam Provider, please order a new certificate here. If you had another Exam Provider, please be aware that it can take some time before you will get a new one. It is therefore important to do it in good time.

The ISTQB® General Assembly meeting of Shanghai 23 October has approved the Release of the Model-Based Tester Foundation Extension Syllabus.

Model-based testing is an innovative test approach to improve effectivity and efficiency of the test process. A model-based tester in a project uses models to drive test analysis and design, and takes advantage of the models for other testing activities such as test implementation and reporting.
ISTQB® Model-Based Tester certification complements the core foundation level as a specialist module. It provides a practical and easy entry to the MBT approach. The ISTQB glossary of software testing terms defines Model-Based Testing as «Testing based on or involving models».

A copy of the Syllabus for a 2-day course can be fond here.
