If you are considering studying for the ISTQB UKTB Certified Tester Foundation Level (CTFL) or ISTQB UKTB Advanced, you should consider the most effective and efficient way to study, as this could save you a small fortune in training fees. As you probably already know, the Foundation level is aimed at software testers who would like to demonstrate their knowledge of software testing. This certification is mainly appropriate for testers, but may also be of benefit to developers, test managers too.
In the UK, Once a decision has been made to study for the ISTQB UKTB certification, the student has (up until recently) a clear choice of studying by themselves from books etc, or attending a classroom-lead training course. Both of these have their drawbacks. Choosing to study yourself gives you no opportunity to ask questions, and could easily result in the miss-understanding of key testing concepts will will ultimately result in a failed exam attempt. While classroom-lead training improves upon self-study, it is incredibly expensive in comparison. Also, there are time issues (unless your employer is willing to sacrifice several days of missed testing).
It makes sense to consider ISTQB UKTB e-learning / distance-learning for both the Foundation and Advanced certifications. This gives you many advantages such as; the flexibility to study when and where you want to, a very low training cost, access to a training tutor, additional certificate to show current and future employers. If you are interested in achieving the ISTQB UKTB Foundation or ISTQB UKTB Advanced, then you should definitely take a look at the distance-learning training courses offered by Testing4Success, see their Training Catalog today and see their extensive range.
