TMMi Professional Certificate

Become a certified TMMi Professional and learn how to improve testing processes.

Want to improve the way your organisation works? In this TMMi® Professional course, you will learn why process improvement with TMMi (Test Maturity Model integration) is important, ways to identify opportunities, and the benefits of successfully improving said improvements.

This TMMi Professional certificate is not only for those looking to improve their organisation. It also serves as a stepping stone for those who want to formalise their skills in TMMi, and potentially move towards becoming a TMMi and/or lead assessor.

What is included with this course?:

  • 250+ page comprehensive course manual.
  • On the rare occasion a student doesn’t pass, they can re-attend the course for FREE within 6 months (excludes exam re-sits).
  • End of each module revision questions.

This course builds upon the principles and terminology taught in the ISTQB syllabus, so an ISTQB certification is recommended but not necessary. This course is designed for:

  • Test managers or anyone involved in test process improvement seeking a solid understanding of the TMMi model.
  • Testers or test leads wishing to elevate their career into test process improvement.
  • Anyone wanting to accredit their skills as a TMMi Professional and continue towards becoming a TMMi or Lead Assessor.
