Software Certifications (the International Software Certifications Board – ISCB)

www.softwarecertifications.org – The International Software Certifications Board’s (ISCB) origins date back to 1980 when it was founded as part of the Quality Assurance Institute (QAI). QAI was established as a professional association whose charter was to represent the software quality assurance (SQA) professional. The founding directors of the institute recognized the need to insulate the professional certification program from the association and to that end the ISCB was structured as an independent board of overseers to provide guidance and governance of the certification program. The ISCB officially launched the first certification program, the Certified Quality Analyst CQA (later to be renamed the Certified Software Quality Analyst CSQA), in 1985 and the first formal examination based certification was launched in 1990. Today, the ISCB’s professional certification programs cover three domains, Software Quality Assurance, Software Testing, and Software Business Analysis. Approximately 52,000 individuals have been certified on six continents.
