In this session, Rex Black will discuss the recent trends in software test certification, both nationally and internationally. He will discuss the rate of adoption of test certifications in the USA and worldwide. Rex will also describe the benefits and value of test certification, making a case for how increased knowledge and skills greatly lowers the cost of post-release defects.

Rex will also discuss the framework of the ISTQB test certification program and how it forms a structure for building testing knowledge from foundation level through advanced, and on to expert levels. You will leave with understanding of what makes ISTQB test certification unique, how to know if test certification is for you, and how to get started in test certification.”
