ISTQB Foundations Course

This course is the first stepping stone in the international "Certified Tester Foundation Level Certificate in Software Testing" certification and follows the "Certified Tester Foundation Level" program from the International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB).


The course covers the ISTQB Foundation level study program completely, using official training materials in Spanish. This course enables those who wish to continue with their ISTQB software testing certifications career to sit for their “Certified Tester Foundation Level Certificate in Software Testing” exam.

Generally the resources for testing are scarce, and are managed based on restrictions. Restrictions involve risks. Many times the best strategy is one that focuses on those things that can malfunction, because the strategy that guarantees the greatest coverage is not possible in the circumstances of the project. When we talk about managing testing based on risks, it is very important to know what elements should be monitored: number and severity of identified bugs, identification / correction ratio, coverage, etc.

The key metrics for a risk-based testing strategy will be reviewed during the course. We will also review techniques for the analysis and evaluation of risks related to the product and the project, based on practical cases. We will observe how to evaluate the quality of the development builds, how to look beyond the release notes, and how to perform the impact analysis of the corrections and changes throughout the life cycle of the software product.

On the end of the course, the application of the knowledge acquired in the context of new development and maintenance of systems in production will be reviewed.

Duration: 3 days / 24 hours


The course consists of three face-to-face, eight-hour classes, with a lunch break at noon.


This basic-level certification is ideal for all software testing professionals: testers, test analysts, users involved in acceptance tests and software developers. There are no pre-requisites and is therefore also suitable to anyone looking to grasp a basic understanding of the software testing process. This includes project managers, QA professionals, team and development leaders, business analysts and consultants.


  • To prepare participants at an international level, recognized by employers, clients and peers;
  • To understand the basic principles behind software testing and the testing process;
  • To impart formal knowledge about the basic testing techniques (static, white box, black box) and to share practical experience on those usually used;
  • To bring participants closer to the standard software testing terminology;
  • To provide a complete vision of all software testing-related activities and processes, from requirement analysis to system implementation;
  • To understand testing management as a fundamental process within the development cycle.
