Online Seminar ISTQB Certified Tester, Foundation Level v4.0 - 2023 (E-Learning/Online-Kurs) - Training and optional exam in English


This is the ISTQB® Foundation Level E-Learning course in English according to the newest ISTQB syllabus v4.0 from 2023. The E-Learning course ISTQB® Certified Tester, Foundation Level, needs to be worked through within 30 days, starting with your desired starting date which you decide upon registration. The additional paper based material which you can order during the registration process will be sent via postal service. This is the E-Learning course in English, with English material - course language is English. The optional exam may be taken as a Remote Proctored Exam from home/the office at the date and time that you want.


This e-learning takes place according to the very latest ISTQB Certified Tester, Foundation Level curriculum, which was published in mid-2023. Knowledge Department is officially accredited by national ISTQB boards for this course in German and English.

After successfully completing the e-learning to become an ISTQB® Certified Tester, you will be able to successfully use and apply the working techniques covered, such as equivalence class analysis. You can design, plan and carry out exams and tests on a project-specific basis. You can also better assess risks related to business processes. You know the essential test terms and the test-relevant international norms and standards. You know how to create meaningful error messages, how to monitor the error correction process, how to design error post-testing efficiently and how to plan, organize and control reviews. You can select test tools specifically and know what needs to be taken into account when introducing test tools.

Compared to the previous curriculum, which had a focus on the V-model, which follows a sequential and phase-based approach and relies more on fixed test levels with formal validation and verification, the agile practices taught in the new CTFL 4.0 curriculum from 2023 enable agile practices such as ATDD, Whole team approach, continuous integration, etc., enable more flexible and responsive development by promoting continuous collaboration, iterative improvements and early feedback.

In summary, the training imparts knowledge and techniques that, when implemented appropriately, lead to a structured, systematic approach to checking and testing. The consequence of this is an improvement in the quality of the software and cost savings.
