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 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.

This includes people in roles such as testers, test analysts, test engineers, test consultants, test managers, user acceptance testers and software developers.
