ISTQB Foundation Extension: Model-Based Tester (CTFL - MBT)

This two-day course serves as a preparation for the “Foundation Extension: Model-Based Tester” certification and responds to all requirements imposed by ISTQB. Model-based testing is an innovative test approach to improve effectivity and efficiency of the test process. A model-based tester on a project uses models to drive test analysis and design, and keeps advantage of the models for other testing activities such as test implementation and reporting.

ISTQB Model-Based Tester certification complements the core foundation level as a specialist module. It provides a practical and easy entry to the MBT approach


Currently no (other) upcoming dates are planned for this course
