Software Testers – YOU NEED THEM!
Laurence “Floz” Martin shares his views on the latest software tester certification and why learners and employers alike will be queuing up to get their hands on it.
Software is the digital wizardry that breathes life into our devices, the invisible hand shaping our modern world.
It’s the language of computers, the enchanting code that transforms hardware into a symphony of functionality – from virtual meetings, AI algorithms and advanced analytics that help us efficiently manage our businesses, to tracking our music taste, monitoring our health and wellbeing and even finding love.
Robust software testing is required by it all to ensure smooth operation, customer satisfaction, and to safeguard the reputation of the company. This requires the expertise of qualified software testers, whom innovative businesses recognise as indispensable.
Industry standards have evolved
As of this year, the International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB) has introduced its new Certified Tester Foundation Level 4.0 certification, which is the quality standard within the industry.
If you want to get ahead in your software testing career, this qualification is what you need. The S&A Technology Academy can help you get there, whether you are completely new to the industry or already have some training to build on.
But we don’t just want to help individuals. Software testing is crucial for more businesses than ever before, and employers are on the hunt for top talent. If you have people within your team with a knack for problem-solving, attention to detail and out-of-the-box thinking – they might just be your next software tester and the answer to your recruitment prayers.
