Model-based testing is an innovative test approach to improve effectivity and efficiency of the test process. A model-based tester on a project uses models to drive test analysis and design, and keeps advantage of the models for other testing activities such as test implementation and reporting.
ISTQB® Model-Based Tester certification complements the core foundation level as a specialist module. It provides a practical and easy entry to the MBT approach.
Passing this level demonstrates that candidates can:
Collaborate in a model-based testing team using standard terminology and established MBT concepts, processes and techniques.
Apply and integrate model-based testing in a test process.
Effectively create and maintain MBT models using established techniques and best practices of model-based testing.
Select, create and maintain test artifacts from MBT models considering risk and value of the features tested.
Support the organization to improve its quality assurance process to be more constructive and efficient.
