IIST Certifications

IIST offers two certification programs that are based on well-defined Bodies of Knowledge approved by IIST's Advisory Board. The IIST Advisory Board strongly believes that the value of any certification program lies in its ability to meet individuals' diverse needs and interests for both breadth and depth of content so that it helps them improve the way they perform their job on a day to day basis.
The two certifications now offered by the International Institute for Software Testing are:

1. Certified Software Test Professional (CSTP)
CSTP is an education-based certification, based on a Body of Knowledge that covers areas essential for every test professional to effectively perform their job in testing projects.

Objectives of CSTP Certification:
- Help individuals develop their software testing skills through formal education
- Establish a common skill set for software testing professionals according to a well-defined Body of Knowledge
- Create a pool of qualified software testing professionals
- Prepare candidates for a wider range of software testing assignments
- Complement company in-house and on-the-job training programs
- Provide professional recognition and career enhancement

CSTP Re-Certification
Based on the objectives of the CSTP Certification and in response to the demands imposed on test professionals to handle a wide range of responsibilities using different development environments and technologies, re-certification through continuous education has become necessary. This necessity has also been confirmed by CSTP graduates, who continuously inquired about a mechanism by which they can further develop skills in more advanced and specialized areas of software testing. In response to this need, the IIST Advisory Board has approved the requirements for re-certification as outlined below.

Requirements:
CSTP Certification will expire 3 years after it is granted. As a result, all CSTPs must complete the re-certification requirements before that time.

2. Certified Test Manager (CTM)
CTM is based on the Test Management Body of Knowledge (TMBOK) developed by IIST through its Advisory Board. The Certified Test Manager (CTM) certification has been created to fill this gap.

Objectives of the CTM Certification:
The CTM Certification was developed to fill the gap in the management skills required by test managers and test leads to effectively manage the test process, the test project and the test organization. Specifically, CTM aims at achieving the following objectives:
- Help individuals develop their test management skills through formal education
- Establish a common skill set for software test managers and test leads based on a well-defined Test Management Body of Knowledge (TMBOK)
- Create a pool of qualified software test managers
- Prepare test professionals, especially those who achieved the Certified Test Professional (CSTP) designation for management and lead positions in software testing projects
- Provide professional recognition and career enhancement for those who manage test projects.
