    Which is Better? CSQA or ISTQB

    Hi,
    I prepare to take an certification. Could anybody give some information about CSQA/TE/PM or ISTQB? Or is there any other popular international certification for QA work?

    I have 2 years test experience and 2 years coding exprience. Next career objective: QA Manager.

    Re: Which is Better? CSQA or ISTQB

    What does "better" mean for you?
    What attributes would make one certification "better" than another in your mind?

    For example, if by "better" you mean "required for more QA Manager jobs", you could test this yourself:
    - go to an online job site you would use while seeking a QA Manager job
    - use its Search facility, and search for "CSQA", then "ISTQB"
    - evaluate the number and quality of hits you receive

    Re: Which is Better? CSQA or ISTQB

    You cannot decide which is better.
    You have to decide which is your priority.
    Do you want to get in to process area then go for CSQA and if you are looking for testing profile go for CSTE.

    If you want knoledge of Process area as well as testing then go for both.

    But certifications does not help directly to get to the positions, I think that will increase you knowledge base.
    Once you apply that knowledge with team then you can achive Manager position.

    Hope this helps.

    I think all courses are good, but ISTQB globally accepted and popular also.

    Re: Which is Better? CSQA or ISTQB

    Thanks for all kindly posts here. Then CSQA is most process focused from all of your answers. I believe it is sure can improve our quality for QA management relative work.

    Wish all of us better and better to achieve our career goal.

    Re: Which is Better? CSQA or ISTQB

    Niether one is worth much. If you want to get into a QA Manager's position I would suggest management courses with or without certifications. If you are offered a QA Manager's job, unless it is just a glorified tester position, you will be expected to manage people, not test.

    Re: Which is Better? CSQA or ISTQB

    Having only 2 years of exp ... I cant move directly to Management level..so I was just asking for suggestion whether it would be worth doing CSQA certification ...or 2 certification which I had already done (ITIL and ISTQB)would be enough to give me entry to QA field in big companies....
