Why study this course

The ISTQB Artificial Intelligence (AI) Tester certification extends understanding of quality engineering to AI and/or deep (machine) learning, most specifically testing AI-based systems and using AI in testing. The course syllabus concentrates on understanding the current state and expected trends of AI to design and execute test cases for AI-based systems.

By the end of the course, you will be able to understand how AI can be used to support software testing. You will also be able to contribute to the test strategy for an AI-based system.

Included with this course:

  • Comprehensive course manual

  • Revision questions for each module

  • Practice exam

Please note: The exam is not included in the course fee but can be purchased separately. Please contact us for a quote.
