ISTQB Virtual Advanced Test Manager Boot Camp


The Test Manager Advanced Level Boot Camp course, created by Rex Black, past President of the International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB), past President of the American Software Testing Qualifications Board (ASTQB) and co-author of the International Software Testing Qualifications Board Foundation Syllabus, is ideal for testers and test teams preparing for certification in a short timeframe with time and money constraints.

This boot camp combines a two day virtual classroom immersion in the Advanced Level Test Manager Syllabus with two weeks of our world-recognized, self-paced, ASTQB-accredited e-learning.
