To take the ISTQB Certified Tester Advanced Level qualifications, candidates must hold the ISTQB Foundation certificate and it is also recommended that candidates holding a baccalaureate or equivalent degree in software engineering have a minimum of 3 years testing experience, or 5 years otherwise. Candidates are also encouraged to spend more time than during the course to further their knowledge of software testing including reading the ISTQB Advanced Level syllabus prior to attending the course and considering some of the additional reading references listed in the syllabus. The syllabus is available online at http://www.istqb.org/downloads.html. Many delegates have also taken additional hands-on training courses to prepare themselves to get the most benefit from this challenging course and examination. Please contact us for further discussion on additional training or preparation that would suit you.
