Delegates should already have a basic working knowledge of IT and an understanding of the testing role in software development. Those who intend to sit the examination at the end of the course will benefit from pre-reading the ISTQB Foundation Level Syllabus and a standard text on the subject from the ISEB book list.
This course is suitable for anyone currently involved in testing or about to move into a testing role who wishes to attain the ISTQB Foundation and BCS Intermediate Certificates in Software Testing.
Passing the ISTQB Foundation exam is a pre-requisite for the BCS Intermediate Certificate. If a candidate takes both the Foundation and the Intermediate but fails the Foundation Level, ISEB will withhold the Intermediate results until they pass the Foundation exam (they have 3 months to achieve that).
If you are taking a BCS exam you must bring photographic identification with you (passport, driving license or student card), as it is a BCS requirement to produce it for the invigilator prior to the exam. Failure to produce a valid form of photographic identification will result in a candidate not being able to sit the exam.
The BCS also allows additional time for candidates who have a disability or whose business language is not English. Candidates can request this additional time in line with the BCS reasonable adjustments policy.
If you believe you qualify for this, please contact our exam administration team (01793 608815) as early as possible. At least three weeks' notice will be required for processing this request and delegates failing to adviseConnect 2 Courses and provide proof if requested by the BCS, may not be allowed the additional support offered via this BCS policy
