    This question I found somewhere on internet and it got me thinking – what would you say?


    Im sure every QA member would know that their are millions of courses that are out in the market for being a certified testers, what matters the most is to have implemented knowledge on the way testing is performed. ISTQB- FL , AL , Agile and the list goes on. You can become a certified tester, but the quality that you should develop is to be someone with implemented knowledge of those certification.


    It depends on the motive of what anyone wants to achieve.

    In some parts of the world, ISTQB is the widely recognized certification; it can be a doorway to land jobs in such places. So the best way to find out is to check out the job ads.

    If the goal is to have a better understanding and knowledge, then  BBST course should help.


    Are certificates still important? I would say that experience is more important…


    I would say good amount of experience can outweigh the need of certificates. But certification helps to onboard faster when starting out.


    In my point of view your work speaks the most not your certificates. So work on your skills to improve it.

    3. Certified Manager of Software Testing ( CMST )
    4. ISTQB Foundation Level ( CTFL )
    5. STQB Agile Tester Certification
