|Course Content||The ISTQB was officially founded as an International Testing Qualifications Board in Edinburgh in November 2002, by members of the ISEB Software testing Board together with representatives from other countries.
The idea and proposal for the ISTQB, stemmed from the original ISEB view of Software Testing and the need for an international Software Testing Qualification. The International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB) has been set up to bring together testers from around the world to work on one set of terminology and syllabuses with a view to allow certification in Software Testing to be internationally recognised and coordinated.
It is the ISTQB's role to support a single, universally accepted, international qualification scheme, aimed at software and system testing professionals.
The ISTQB Foundation certificate is awarded to all those who successfully complete a one-hour, multiple choice examination. The examination is externally set and invigilated by ISEB.
