ISTQB® releases new Certified Tester Acceptance Testing 2019 Syllabus

The ISTQB® General Assembly has approved the new Acceptance Testing – specialist module syllabus for general release.

This Acceptance Testing syllabus is joint effort between ISTQB® and IQBBA® - International Qualification Board for Business Analysis.

“The rapid transformation of organizations towards agile and digital technology is changing software testing practices towards greater collaboration between the various stakeholders in the software development lifecycle. This syllabus, which is the result of a close collaboration between the ISTQB and the IQBBA, will facilitate the efficiency of acceptance testing through the joint training of business analysts / product owners and testers. We are very proud to bring this new syllabus to the market.” – says Olivier DENOO, President of ISTQB®.

“This syllabus responds to the acceleration of innovation in testing with the rapid development of ATDD - Acceptance Test Driven Development, and BDD - Behavior Driven Development, which are based on the collaborative development of acceptance test scenarios when refining business requirements.” Says Bruno Legeard, ISTQB® & IQBBA® Acceptance Testing working group chair.
