Due to the increasing complexity of modern software development projects it is essential that QA/Testers are certified. Whereas, many employees are shifted into QA positions from programming or other areas in development or just a change of work duties. We have found that in a number of cases there has been a vague understanding of the QA/ Testing Process, and often a lack of the SDLC comprehension tools that are necessary for productive software testing.
It is vital for any company that their QA Team possess a thorough understanding of the �Software Development Process�, and how it fits into the business approach and goals of the organization. Therefore, without the pertinent knowledge and training through QA/Tester certifications the process cannot be completely thorough.
Software testing to any company's reputation is bottom-line and without having QA/Testers certified the product released cannot receive top-notched approval from the customer. This could possibly result in costing the company billions of dollars.
Ultimately, for a top notch product, you need QA/Testing certified professionals involved in the development process. It is critical to any product's success to have trained and certified professionals on your QA Team.
The Certified Tester Professional certification program can provide focused career training, skill development essential to handling the most complex software projects, and skill development for working professionals. In addition, the program focuses on workplace processes and procedures that are related to structured and unstructured development settings.
