CSQA Certified Software Quality Analyst

Introduction


The CSQA certification entails an aggressive educational program that tests the level of competence in the principles and practices of quality assurance and control in the Information Technology (IT) profession. These principles and practices are defined by the Certification Board as the Common Body of Knowledge (CBOK).

As the IT industry becomes more competitive, management must be able to distinguish professional and skilled individuals in the field when hiring. Certification demonstrates a level of understanding in carrying out software testing principles and practices that management can depend upon. Acquiring the designation of CSQA indicates a professional level of competence in software quality assurance. CSQAs become members of a recognized professional group and receive recognition for their competence by businesses and professional associates, potentially more rapid career advancement, and greater acceptance in the role as advisor to management.
