Today was my first day in the Software Testing Foundations course at IBM (also known as the Certified Tester-Foundational Level Training course). The course is taught by Dale Perris who works for Software Quality Engineering. This course prepares me for the ISTQB*™ Certified Tester—Foundation Level exam, which I will take on Thursday afternoon. So far, some very interesting topics are being covered. If you’re interested in the material covered, check out the ISTQB syllabus, or SQE’s course outline.
