gasq has launched a new certification scheme for testing in the field of automotive.

The new Automotive Software Tester certification is specialized on testers in the field of automotive. It contains out of three modules:

  • Basics in software testing
  • Testing in automotive industries
  • Relevant norms in the automotive sector

This new certification is seen as an add-on to the existing ISTQB Certified Tester certification and strongly recommends also to sit the ISTQB Certified Tester certification. It is an add-on for all people working in the field of automotive and need to know both, the relevant norms and standards in automotive and the general ISTQB knowledge.
The Automotive Tester Board under leadership of Dr. Hendrik Dettmering was working on the new syllabus for more than 1 year. Werner Henschelchen, gasq Secretary General: "My congratulations to this group! They developed a new amendment complementary to the ISTQB certification with the aim to bring the ISTQB knowledge together with the relevant automotive knowledge to a wider group of tester."
