The ISTQB® Certified Tester standard is subdivided into the Levels Foundation, Advanced and Expert as well as the streams Agile, Core and Specialist.
While the levels indicate the in-depth coverage of a specific topic, the streams indicate where a topic should be located in terms of breadth:
- Core: Basic test knowledge that describes a standard-compliant procedure for all industries and test environments.
- Agile: Testing in agile project environments.
- Specialist: Topics that have recently moved into the focus of quality assurance and software testing. Developed in different markets and for specific industries and compliant with ISTQB®.
The Foundation Level also includes courses from the ISTQB®-related environment, which were designed to be compatible with the ISTQB® methodology from the onset and which extend the subject area.
Agile approach needs rehearsing! With these trainings you can enhance your expertise in agile testing projects or master the transition to agile procedures beyond the methodology taught in the ISTQB® Certified Tester Agile Tester.
You will learn how to efficiently design testing in agile development projects and how to transfer the flexibility of the agile approach to testing.
Specific areas of testing and related tasks require specific know-how and specific techniques and skills. The ISTQB®-stream "Specialist" already conveys many of these aspects of testing or test-related situations, e.g. in test automation as well as for handling industry standards, performance or usability. In this category you will find more in-depth information on these and complementary topics such as writing requirements and specifications.
Even beyond these, we help you tackle a wide range of quality related issues, such as the test of embedded systems, mobile apps, etc. or the consideration of a standard such as DICOM for image communication in the medical field.

How to handle requirements professionally?
How to formulate and document requirements?
What is the relationship between requirements management and testing?
These areas are not part of the core area of testing, but sound knowledge is a decisive basis for software quality and testing. Therefore, we have awarded the established standard Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering of the IREB® (International Requirements Engineering Board) and some additional contributions a separate category.
