The Exam
The Foundation Certificate is awarded to those who pass a written one hour multiple-choice exam which is set, moderated, marked and monitored by the American Software Testing Board (ASTQB). The exam is NOT included.

Who will benefit
This course is appropriate for testers, test team leaders, developers, development managers, business analysts, and anyone wishing to gain the ISTQB Foundation Certificate in Software Testing.

Prerequisites
None.  However we strongly suggest that delegates wishing to take the Foundation exam should have at least 6 months experience in testing.
 
Course Schedule
This version of the course is a structured self-paced course. You will have access to all course materials for 21 days; however, the timeline to complete the course is two weeks. An online meeting with your instructor will be scheduled every other day during the two weeks. A total of five meetings will be scheduled – Week 1 on Tuesday and Thursday; Week 2 on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Each day, there are two time slots to choose from: 2:00PM – 4:00PM ET or 7:00PM – 9:00PM ET. During the meeting your instructor can answer any questions and provide additional information about the topics covered through presentations or labs. Our goal is to prepare you for the ASTQB Foundation Level certification exam.
