After Certifying 38,000 Professionals at Entry and Foundation Levels, QAI Now Launches Certified Manager of Software Testing (CMST) as an Upgrade to QAI – CSTE, ISTQB Practitioner & IIST Series
QAI, which administers Software Certifications’ examinations have now announced the launch of Certified Manager of Software Testing. After having certified in excess of 38,000 professionals in 43 countries and set the standard for software testing practitioner and entry level certifications, which is the recognized international standard for testing professionals, QAI has launched a new manager level certification for Software Testers – Certified Manager of Software Testing (CMST).
The vacuum existing in the industry on the need for higher certifications in the Testing domain has been addressed by QAI. The large base of the existing people certified on ISTQB (Practitioner), IIST (CST) and QAI certification (CSTE) now have an avenue to upgrade and certify themselves in the managerial level with the launch of CMST.
Software certifications are increasingly being taken up by large organizations to give their employees global recognition. Accenture has over 2000 and Infosys has over 4400 professionals certified, which is testimony to the growing trend. These certifications are taken to consistently assess the employee’s skill sets.
"QAI certifications have been very well received by the Chinese market. And given the IT certification market will grow globally, the launch of CMST was much needed. This managerial level certification provides us a great opportunity to help the large available pool of certified professionals to graduate to the next level," said Navyug Mohnot, CEO, QAI.
