Hello everybody,

the last two links do not work —Preceding unsigned comment added by Erkan Yilmaz (talkcontribs) 23:50, 29 September 2006 (UTC)

They may as well be removed. I'll do it. JonHarder 00:22, 30 September 2006 (UTC)
Hi JonHarder, I did not know the exact rules, also it may also have been, that the links will work again later and perhaps there is a chekcing-time for this I thought. CU, --Erkan Yilmaz 01:05, 30 September 2006 (UTC)

first sentence already not ok[edit]

it says: "The International Software Testing Qualification Board (ISTQB) replaced the existing Information Systems Examination Board (ISEB) Foundation Exam " I mean: how can an organization replace an exam? more probably the author meant the ISTQB Foundation Level exam replaced... --Erkan Yilmaz 12:43, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

also this is at the beginning - but at the beginning there should be info about the ISTQB not already details - therefore copying two sentences from ISTQB Certified Tester and putting them at the beginning. --Erkan Yilmaz 12:51, 14 October 2006 (UTC)
deleted parts of first sentence, reason stands here:

Controversy section[edit]

The text of the Controversy section refers to multiple domain experts, but only gives one link - to James Bach's blog, embodying his long-expressed dislike of any kind of formal qualification. His opinions may or may not be typical, but that link is HIGHLY POV. ExpatSalopian (talk) 02:51, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

Certification Controversy[edit]

Rather than just a dump of links could we have some text please? (This is mainly aimed at Keith). If I'm not busy at the weekend, or later, I'll add something myself. I'm adding this here as Keith obviously has a more eloquent way of putting this than me, so it seems worthwhile him adding it. Jtowler (talk) 06:09, 10 May 2013 (UTC)


Does the CT in the different qualifications stands for Certified tester? If so I'd like to update it to say so :) (talk) 14:22, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
