QAI Certifications

Certification is formal recognition of a level of proficiency in the information technology (IT) quality assurance industry. The recipient is acknowledged as having an overall comprehension of the disciplines and skills represented in a comprehensive body of knowledge for a respective software discipline.

The QAI Global Institute, formerly known as Quality Assurance Institute, was founded in 1980 in the United States of America. QAI's founding objective was and remains to provide leadership in improving quality, productivity, and effective solutions for process management in the information services profession.

QAI supports following Certifications:

1. Certified Software Tester (CSTE)
The Certified Software Tester (CSTE) certification is intended to establish standards for initial qualification and provide direction for the testing function through an aggressive educational program. Acquiring the designation of Certified Software Tester (CSTE) indicates a professional level of competence in the principles and practices of quality control in the IT profession. CSTEs become members of a recognized professional group and receive recognition of their competence by business and professional associates, potentially more rapid career advancement, and greater acceptance in the role as advisor to management.

2. Certified Software Quality Analyst (CSQA)
Acquiring the designation of Certified Software Quality Analyst (CSQA) indicates a professional level of competence in the principles and practices of quality assurance in the IT profession. CSQAs become members of a recognized professional group and receive recognition of their competence by business and professional associates, potentially more rapid career advancement, and greater acceptance in the role as advisor to management.

3. Certified Quantitative Software Process Engineer (CQSPE)
The Certified Quantitative Software Process Engineer (CQSPE) certification aims at developing professionals who have gained the requisite knowledge & skills to help define & implement an organization’s measurement program using Quantitative Software Process Management (QSPM) techniques.
An organization needs to consistently control and improve its processes to deliver products that meet customer requirements and remain competitive. QSPM is a framework that integrates the concept of measurement with software process management. QSPM provides an approach through which objective insight into an organization’s goals and the capability of its processes can be determined.

4. Certified Associate in Software Quality (CASQ)
Acquiring the designation of Certified Associate in Software Quality (CASQ) indicates a professional level of competence in the principles and practices of quality assurance in the IT profession.

The Certified Software Process Engineer (CSPE) certification aims at developing professionals who can be an integral part of the organization’s process improvement and can support the Quality Process Improvement team to develop software process, analyze and solve quality problems, track and implement process improvement suggestions. The CSPE certification can be taken by fresh graduates and individuals with work experience, aspiring to develop skills and knowledge in quality tools and processes and join an organization’s process improvement initiative.

Since the mid 1980s, more and more software organizations have started using models and standards to support and improve their software engineering activities. Most of the process improvement programs have achieved positive results. However, many have died a silent death for lack of experienced professionals participating in these process improvement initiatives. CSPE certification is a step in the direction to help bridge the gap between the demand and supply of qualified software process improvement professionals.

7. Certified Software Business Analyst (CSBA)
Certification is recommended as a means to define the Common Body of Knowledge for the practice of business analyzation, and evaluate an individual’s ability to apply that knowledge to practice.

Dear All,

 

I am planning to give CSTE certification, but i am unable to find any site to download it free.
I would really appreciate if you send me the CBOK 2010 & questions.
 
Thanks Inadvance.
 
Thanks,
Ajay

I have the CSTE certification, and it's very difficult. The CSTE cover the most of areas in test than the other certifications in the same path

I don't recommend look at sample questions in the web. All the questions in the certification are in CBOK. The best way is do the official course, that provide you sample questions about this exam.

Hi All,
Can any one share the previous exam papers of CSTE

Mr. prajapati it seems that you are not in the Software Testing Field, your question itself shows how immature you are in this regard, i suggest you to go through http://softwarecertifications.org/ to clarify your illogical doubts
Comment by nprajapati on October 30, 2009 at 5:36pm
