General Information
Introduction :
Model-based testing is an innovative test approach to improve effectivity and efficiency of the test process. A Model-based tester on a project uses models to drive test analysis and design, and keeps advantage of the models for other testing activities such as test implementation and reporting. ISTQB® Model-Based Tester certification complements the core foundation level as a specialist module. It provides a practical and easy entry to the MBT approach. The ISTQB® glossary of software testing terms defines Model-Based Testing as “Testing based on or involving models”.
Business Outcome:
Effectively create and maintain MBT models using establish techniques and best practices of model-based testing. The quality of models is essential for a success of MBT in a given project. Many users do not have the knowledge to decide about the quality and therefore to have a criteria on hand to decide when the model is finished for a given task.

The ISTQB® MBT certification gives a practical approach to create MBT models and to assess their quality. It shows a perspective of the modelling paradigm as a process which helps people to correct their approach as soon as possible if it goes in the wrong direction.
