Description

The certification for Foundation Level Specialist – Automotive Software Tester is designed for professionals who are working within automotive projects.

It is also for professionals who are planning
to start implementing special automotive testing techniques in the near future, or are working within
companies that plan to do so. The certification provides an advantage for those who would like to know
the required Automotive activities, roles, techniques, and methodologies specific to their role.
