ISTQB® announces Successful Candidate Register to launch in 2017
9 March 2017
ISTQB® is pleased to announce that a new central register of successful candidates will be available on the ISTQB® website from June 2017. The Successful Candidate Register will list individuals who pass an ISTQB® certification examination (at all levels and across all modules) and who have given their consent to be included.
Gualtiero Bazzana, ISTQB® President says “ISTQB® provides the world’s leading certification scheme for software testing professionals; recognizing success is important and we are delighted that we will have a central register that acknowledges the achievement of individuals around the globe”.
“We are extremely pleased to include this service within ISTQB® and hope it will support individuals and employers with a resource that offers objective evidence of certificate validity”, said Alon Linetzki, ISTQB® Marketing Chair.
ISTQB® Member Boards and Exam Providers are aiming to begin data collection from 1st January 2017 in readiness for the launch in June 2017 (please contact your local Member Board or Exam Provider for more information as the date when data collection will commence may vary). If you already hold an ISTQB® Certification you will not be automatically included on the register and should contact the authority who issued the original certificate for further information regarding how and when you could be added.
