The UK and Ireland Testing Board (UKITB) is a not for profit legal entity formed in 2007 whose roles include:

  • Support for ISTQB® certification schemes in the UK
  • Provision of accreditation for ISTQB® trainers and training materials in the UK via our exam partners (BCS and iSQI)
  • Working with testers, employers, education and other standard bodies to advance the professionalism of the software testing profession in the UK

In order to achieve the support and delivery of the ISTQB certification scheme in the UK using accredited training providers and exam providers, the UK and Ireland Testing Board is made up of volunteers.

The UK and Ireland Testing Board has created a network of dedicated people who are committed to improving the software testing community in the United Kingdom for businesses and individuals.

Volunteer opportunities available include representing UKITB at various marketing events and trade shows, working on UKITB and ISTQB® working groups, and potentially becoming an UKITB board member.  Volunteering gives you a real opportunity to make a visible difference to software testers around the United Kingdom.

However the UK and Ireland Testing Board does not deliver testing services (functional or non functional) to end users or clients and as such can not help those aspiring testers, test managers with work experience in order to enhance their careers.
