How to apply for Software Testing Certification exam?

I have previously written some posts on Software testing certifications.  Many readers don’t know how to apply and prepare for these Testing and QA certifications. I will briefly guide here about the certifications available and the locations where you can give the exams.

Certifications In software Testing some history:

In 1980 Quality Assurance Institute (QAI) established a association to represent Quality Assurance professionals. Currently many beginners and advanced level certifications are offered by QAI. Certifications like CSQA (Certified Software Quality Analyst), CSTE (Certified Software Test Engineer), CSPM (Certified Software Project Manager) and Some Advanced level certifications like CMST (Certified Manager of Software Testing), CMSQ (Certified Manager of Software Quality).

Normally people having these certifications are recognized as proficient in Quality Assurance. (As what they believe ;-) )  But there is definitely a plus when it’s comes to your promotion. Other advantage of having certification what I feel is you will brush up the testing knowledge and methodologies while preparing for exam.

There are some prerequisite you should meet before applying for these software Testing certifications. These depends on the certification you are applying for plus some common prerequisites like:

  •  4 years degree from reputed college + 2 years of IT experience OR
  •  3 years degree + 3 years UT experience OR
  •  2 years degree + 4 years IT experience OR
  •  6 years IT experience OR

AND  Should be worked in IT field for the last 18 months.

------------

To apply for the certification fill out the form available at Testing certification application form. Please check which certification you want to pursue and then fill the form accordingly.

Please note that the application fee for any fresh certification is US $350 in which you can also get the exam guide CD. You must mail or fax the above filled application form to the appropriate address provided in the application form with your fees payment.

Note that these certifications exams are conducted in the location of your choice. Your application is first reviewed by QAI board and on approval further notes are sent to the local exam centers approved by QAI.  You can check the current year schedule and locations of testing certification here.

For example if you want to give software testing certification exam in India, Pune center (MIT college) you must fill the application form before 15th October 2007 and can give the exam on 15th December 2007.  Total 2 retakes are allowed for any certification. If you still not cleared the exam then forget about the testing certifications and even Testing.

More guide on available certifications and filling the form can be found here.

Good information on certifications from QAI. Apart from QAI there are many other bodies who award certification related to software testing. You also have option for certifications from different vendors as well.. if you are planning to apply for any certification, make sure it is treated well in your job market and have something which you can learn.. some more information about certifications can be found at testinggeek.com/certification.asp

#59 selva

Hi,
I am selva. I am woking as Testing Engineer in chennai.I would like to do automation testing cource in chennai.
Can anybody suggest me which is best place in chennai..

#60 Tiger2k

Hi Selva,
Since your already working as Testing engineer , You must be accustom to testing methodlogies and practices.
Well i suggest you can actual learn over the internet ( Self learning).
Google is the father of all computer teacher.
But if you really want to join a course for automation,
i suggest you to look for STG , SSI , Test Center, as a matter of fact their are loads of small testing insitute who have good teacher for automation, Try out you luck their. i heard loads of them are located in T.nagar not sure though.

Best of luck.

Tiger2k.

#63 Priya

Hi Guys,
Could you please give me some idea about Performance testing for web application. I mean what should be my approach, I have never done it before. Please guide me.

Thanks
Priyabrata

#64 Tiger2k

Hey Priya,

You can follow the approach for
Performance Testing:

The basic requirements of any performance testing (web based application) are:

· Expected load in terms of concurrent users or HTTP connections

· Acceptable response time (5 sec as per industry standards)

Process to conduct the performance testing:

Step1) Identify the test scenarios

. Identify the critical test scenarios and prepare the click stream documents for each scenario (Navigation flows Or Factional Flows)

. Divide the each scenario into number of transactions

Ex: some searches, Reports and some navigations

Step2) Record the scenarios

. Record the identified steps using the click stream documents (Any tool, Load Runner/Silk Performer/ Rational Performance)

Step3) Customize the script

. Customize the script to handle all the dynamic values or server generated values.

. Parameterize the script if required

Step4) Dry Run the script

Run the individual tests from 1 v.user and try to eliminate the all script issues

Step5) Schedule the scripts

. Run the scripts in terms users (1 to 100 virtual users)

. Monitor the execution results

Step6) Analyze the results

. Analyze the tool provide graphs and identified bottlenecks

. Provide the summary reports to dev team and server management team.

Please revert back to me any clarification.

Regards,
Tiger2K

#98 CH.girish chander raju

Good idea sandhya,as you are 2+ exp in testing,I suggest you to take exam on AVANCED LEVEL in ISTQB.

1)In INDIA EXAMINATION IS ORGANISZED BY INDIAN TESTING BOARD(www.indiantestingboard.com).

2)fees:4000rs.if you are hyderabadi,then select MIND Q in SR NAGAR,for training.
3)Exam will be on feb 15,2009.last date of fee submission is feb 5.
4)for further information go to http://www.indiantestingboard.com and then click on FAQ.You will find all answers to queries regarding ISTQB.

Further information contact through my mail:ch.girishchander.raju@gmail.com

thank you

#163 Suraksha

I need suggestion ,Am not comfortable with coding i .e development .As am from non cs background am feeling development is difficult for me..Mine was EEE ,I tried to cope –up but no use ?. That too Java I don’t want to work on it. So am planning to change my stream to testing .Please suggest me, can I change the stream now? how far its going to affect my career and I don’t have yet hands on Testing to change proj or company am so much in dilemma , confused .If I start seeking for testing what could be the prerequisites ,how to approach ?So what could be your suggestion on this? As of now I have not worked on core development. I am working on something which has no scope once i moved out of this project or company.I can’t include this as java experience.

#164 Harish

@ Suraksha,

Please find reply to your question:

1) Can I change the stream now?
-> Yes, You can always change your stream in this Industry, Just be prepared with some good reason if someone ask you why?

2) How far its going to affect my career
-> It will not affect your carrier, I have seen many dev folks moving to testing and vice-versa. Moreover, It’s good that if you had some dev exp before moving to Testing ( It will help you during Automation(Incase if you would like to move))

3)I don’t have yet hands on Testing to change proj or company
-> Not a BIG DEAL!… ask your manager ofr IJP or else learn manual testing/Automation testing and move-on :)

4) If I start seeking for testing what could be the prerequisites
-> All you need is a good communication and good knowledge on testing concepts (Real time)

Regards,
Harish
