Collaboration between ISTQB® and iSQI on Mobile App Testing certification announced!

iSQI's Certified Mobile App Professional (CMAP) has become a well-established qualification around the world and is already recommended by a number of ISTQB's Member Boards. On the 24th March, 2017 the ISTQB® General Assembly (in Lima, Peru) confirmed that iSQI's CMAP Mobile App Testing - Foundation Level certification will become part of the ISTQB® product portfolio. An ISTQB® working group has been established to support integration of the CMAP product and align documentation including the syllabus, exam and accreditation guidelines and glossary.
ISTQB® President Gualtiero Bazzana welcomes this collaboration, "Mobile testing has been a top priority in the latest surveys that ISTQB® has conducted among the global testing community, hence, we are happy that the ISTQB® Product Portfolio will soon be extended in this direction. The CMAP Foundation syllabus will be totally aligned to all the ISTQB® rules and guidelines".

Stephan Goericke CEO of the iSQI Group stated "Establishing a common standard in mobile app testing certification is a positive step for test professionals. CMAP has been very well accepted by the market with its focus on practical skills and we are delighted that ISTQB® has recognised the value of this certification".

The UK and Ireland Testing Board had been recommending this product previously as complementary and will fully integrate with the ISTQB portfolio.
