From Earth Times

The Quality Assurance Institute (QAI), having established the international standard for Software Quality and Software Testing Certifications including the Certified Software Quality Analyst (CSQA) and Certified Software Tester (CSTE), announced that they have certified in excess of 35,000 professionals worldwide in 43 countries, including the UK.

Software certifications are increasingly being taken up by large organizations to give their employees global recognition. Accenture has over 2000 and Infosys has 4400 professionals certified, which is testimony to the growing trend. These certifications are taken to consistently assess the employees’ skill sets. For example, the graph of a testing professional could be assessed at various levels depending on his experience. The entry-level certification examination is called STP (Software Testing Professional) after which the individual can become a CSTE (Certified Software Tester). Post that, he can get recognized as an ASTP (Advanced Software Testing Professional).
