      ISTQB Foundation Level

      This is what you need to start your journey in becoming an accredited tester. The foundation level as the word describes, is the stage where you will learn the fundamental principles and practice of ISTQB. After graduating you can proudly demonstrate your globally recognised qualifications.

      In brief, it puts you on the map and allows professionals, clients and teams to spot you!

      Additionally this level is your passport to the next level, if your career aspirations go that way.


      The Foundation Level qualification is suitable for anyone who is involved as well as interested in software testing. This includes people in roles such as testers, test analysts, test engineers, test consultants, test managers, user acceptance testers and software developers. This Foundation Level qualification is also appropriate for anyone who wants a basic understanding of software testing, such as project managers, quality managers, software development managers, business analysts, IT directors and management consultants.

      The entry criterion for taking the ISTQB Certified Tester Foundation Level Software Testing exam is that candidates have an interest in software testing. However, it is strongly recommended that candidates also:

      • Have at least a minimal background in either software development or software testing, such as six months experience as a system or user acceptance tester or as a software developer

      • Take a course that has been accredited to ISTQB standards (by one of the ISTQB-recognized member boards)

      The content of the training is in accordance with the official ISTQB Syllabus. What makes ONELITY’s program stand out is that during your training you will explore real case studies from our global projects portfolio. Along with exercises and mock tests, you will explore real and international scale projects that you get solid skills and deep understanding. Success in exams is what naturally follows. The Foundation Level certification grants you access to specialized topics within the ISTQB Specialist track, e.g. the Agile tester and Test Manager.

      The program is built for practitioners with limited available time. Most of the work is carried out during classes.

      However you might need 12-14hrs to read the syllabus prior the start of the course and 3-4 hrs, to reflect on the total material and do some mock tests before the exams.

      Each participant receives a certificate of attendance upon the completion of the training. Not all participants are obliged to participate in the examination. The examination has a duration of 75 min and a minimum score of 65% is required to pass (26/40). The structure and rules for the ISTQB exams along with a mock test are sent via email to the registered participants prior to the course. Further instructions for attending the exams during COVID-19 are given during the training.
