Aptitude, learning attitude and understanding of the basics of software testing are the prerequisites for being a tester. Tester can’t forget that software testing is not a pure science like chemistry or physics. Software applications don’t come with an absolute solution; in fact varieties of thoughts and convictions by smart tester form approaches to an effective software testing. A tester steps into the professional world and gradually matures with experience of putting knowledge of testing into action.
Importance of Branding:
Branding of a special skill comes with an advanced education clubbed with some internationally reputed certification. ISTQB certifications go beyond expecting knowledge and understanding of basics of testing. These certifications of international repute accredit the tester with abilities to analyze and solve complex test assignments. The beginning is made with ISTQB foundation level certification.
Advanced level ISTQB certification brands the tester as a specialist of functional domains like management or testing and analysis. The expectations in terms of skills are of very high order for such advanced certifications.
Analogy of ISTQB Certifications to Acquiring a Driving Licence
Let us compare the software testing education with getting a driver’s license and driving a car, then the foundation level ISTQB certification is like getting the theoretical part and base the license on that and a little bit of supervised practice. You need to learn all the traffic rules by heart, not necessarily understand them, and only be able to apply them in a limited environment.
The advanced driver has driven a car many time, and in many different situations: in nice weather, in the rain, and maybe even on an snow as well. The advanced driver has driven different cars, and perhaps even driven in places where they drive on the “wrong” side of the road. Maybe the advanced driver would not be able to pass the theoretical driver’s license test again, but he or she drives with a deep understanding of that foundation every day.
Whether a person is a novice or experienced in testing field, ISTQB certification in foundation or advanced level makes him or her better tester than what he or she is at the moment.
These certifications are certainly a golden feather in his/her cap.
