Model-Based Tester Extension Syllabus

The Model-Based Tester Extension is based on the ISTQB® Model-Based Tester Extension Syllabus.

The International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB®) provides it to the national examination bodies for them to accredit the training providers and to derive examination questions in their local language.

Training providers will produce courseware and determine appropriate teaching methods for accreditation, and the syllabus will help candidates in their preparation for the examination.

To receive the Model-Based Tester Extension certification, candidates must hold the Foundation Certificate.
