For all testers

The BNTQB is an association for all testers. Test professionals can find all the information they need on certifications and career opportunities with us. Training providers can also come to us to accredit their training courses and trainers.

Do you want to promote professionalism within your company? You’ve come to the right place for that too. As a partner you are entitled to, for example, early information about changes in certifications.

Certification is a way of achieving a globally recognized and uniform testing approach. As a testing professional, you will find all information on our site about certification directions and levels. Use it to map out your complete career path.

Accreditation desk
As a training provider we’re also there for you. We assess the content and quality of your training courses. For this accreditation we offer clear and unambiguous access via the accreditation desk.
