BMM Testlabs and ISTQB® are pleased to announce that BMM Testlabs has achieved Global Partner status with ISTQB®, the International Software Testing Qualifications Board (www.istqb.org).
ISTQB® Global Partner status demonstrates an organization’s commitment to the field of Software Testing and its willingness to contribute to the promotion of the testing profession all over the world, by means of certifying people in accordance to the “ISTQB® Certified Tester” path within the ISTQB® Portfolio.
The ISTQB® Global Partnership requires that an international organization has at least three legal entities, in different countries, holding ISTQB® Gold or Platinum Partnership status. BMM qualifies with:
– BMM Testlabs Australia – Gold Partner
– BMM Testlabs North America – Gold Partner
– BMM Testlabs Canada – Platinum Partner
Travis Foley, EVP Operations, BMM Testlabs – Americas commented, “As BMM continues to implement the ISTQB® certification program across its 13 global locations, every one of the company’s software engineers is committed to achieving the ISTQB® certification. The benefits to the test lab, and the industry at large, are clear: Independently recognized, world-class, qualified testers result in improved quality of testing, increased product-time-to-market, decreased revocations, and importantly, more quality playing time for the patrons and game players.”
“We are very proud to have BMM Testlabs as a Global Partner in the ISTQB® Partner Program. Gaming has become one of the most important industries of the Digital era and ISTQB® is getting more involved in that domain and is considering investing in syllabi and exams specifically dedicated to this domain.” stated Gualtiero Bazzana, ISTQB® President.
Kirk White, EVP & General Manager BMM International commented, “BMM has found that ISTQB®’s independent testing is bringing benefits twofold to the organization: not only are clients and regulators assured that BMM’s testers meet and exceed world class standards, as recognized by an outside and independent body; but also ISTQB®’s methods are ensuring an incredibly high level of competence amongst BMM’s testing engineers.”
Linda Lemieux, SVP BMM Testlabs Canada added, “Ongoing education and staff development is of high importance at BMM. Engineers are offered career advancement via a test management stream and they recognize ISTQB® testing as a career path.”
“We believe that the fact that BMM Testlabs chose ISTQB® to be its partner with our certification portfolio scheme worldwide, is a trend we see with organizations today working globally, wanting to get the right recognition to their huge efforts in professionally educating their test engineers, test managers and test experts. That gives them leverage in today’s market, making sure their professional stand point is high. We wish BMM success in implementing the ambitious education plan they have worldwide, and we will assist BMM in any way possible in this joint road for better professionalism.” said Alon Linetzki, ISTQB® Marketing Working Group Chair.
