We are excited to announce the launch of the latest version of the Certified Tester Foundation Level (CTFL) certification – CTFL 4.0!

With this updated syllabus, we aim to empower testers to become key players in agile transformation, break down silos, and end the “blame game.” The CTFL 4.0 certification focuses on collaboration, open and honest communication, and a shift-left approach that places testing at the forefront of quality and value delivery.

The CTFL 4.0 certification provides testers with the latest knowledge and skills to deliver better testing and better agility. With a focus on embracing new approaches to delivering quality, the certification emphasizes building quality in and defect prevention over detection. It also highlights the effective use of proper test tooling and automation, without sacrificing the sapient behavior of manual testing.

The CTFL 4.0 certification sets the de facto standard for testers and testing worldwide. It provides the necessary methodological toolbox, aligned vocabulary, and techniques to write better test cases and deliver more qualitative software. The syllabus is aligned with industry best practices, combined with international standards such as ISO and academic research.

By certifying, you join the more than 1,000,000 certified testers worldwide. It is a recognizable hallmark for everyone in the software industry and demonstrates your commitment to professional development and quality.

Don’t miss the opportunity to be one of the first to take the CTFL 4.0 certification exam. CTFL 4.0 is available at Pearson and via remote proctor, and indeed for on-site exams (online and paper). Browse our website to learn more and register.
