ISTQB® Certified Automotive Software Tester

Categories Test & Quality Assurance

General Information
2 Days

You are already a certified ISTQB® Certified Tester – Foundation Level and would like to apply your knowledge in the context of automotive software development? Over many years, the ISTQB® Certified Tester scheme has become established as the certification standard for software testing, but so far, the link to its application in an automotive environment was missing.

Now we close this gap with the course “Certified Automotive Software Tester” (CAST). In this course, you learn how to apply your knowledge in the automotive industry. Take advantage of this opportunity to qualify as tester for automotive software systems!

Please note that further preparation at the end of each course day is recommended to succeed in passing the exam.
