Software Testing Certification - 2010 Changes - the ISTQB Certified Tester scheme

The BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT (the Institute, formerly ISEB) and the UK Testing Board (UKTB) signed an agreement in March 2010. This agreement will see the Institute working more closely with UKTB and ISTQB (International Software Testing Qualifications Board) to provide one single International Software Testing Certification Scheme - the ISTQB Certified Tester scheme.

What this means for those considering Software Testing courses:

The good news is that BCS professional certifications will continue to remain valid even after the alignment is consummated.

Here is how the ISTQB Certified Tester scheme certification path works:
