About the Course
Course Duration: 3 days
Exam Fees Included
This new course superseded the BCS Intermediate Certificate in Software Testing in the Summer of 2020.
Using the ISTQB Foundation Level as a base, the BCS Certificate in Software Testing syllabus develops and supplements core testing principles by considering the typical circumstances that anyone involved in testing encounters in the workplace. The BCS Certificate in Software Testing exam demonstrates that candidates can apply software testing knowledge and skills to practical real-life situations through scenario-driven questions.
This three-day tutor-led course includes lectures, exercises and practical work. At the end of day three delegates prepare and take the examination. It is fully-accredited by BCS Professional Certifications and they have rated it as SFIAplus level 4.
Who is it for?
This BCS Certificate in Software Testing syllabus is for anyone involved in practical software testing activities. It is not role-specific and considers the typical cross-skills required for a tester at any level working in a collaborative software development environment. The BCS Certificate in Software Testing exam bridges the gap between the ISTQB Foundation and the role-based ISTQB Advanced Certificates and prepares candidates for more complex and in-depth role-based syllabi and scenario-driven examinations.
