In March of 2017, Zoonou became an International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB) Silver Partner. It represented part of our longer term plan to align the company with internationally recognised standards and accreditations and is the first stage in our relationship with ISTQB. Geoff Thomson of UK Testing Board (UKTB), the UK arm of ISTQB said:
“We are delighted that we can present Zoonou with this Silver Partnership in recognition of their focus and interest in Software Testing and the development of their employees. We look forward to continuing to work with Zoonou as their business grows”.
Zoonou plans to add further accreditation in the near future based on more advanced testing qualifications with ISTQB and the British Computer Society (BCS). We see that as vital to our continued business growth and also because we see market demands in more specialist services such as automation, penetration and performance. For accessibility testing, we recently developed test scripts that comply to the highest AAA WCAG 2.1 standard.
One of Zoonou’s project leads, Terence Young said about the accreditation:
“I feel this is excellent recognition for the hard work our testers have put in. We’re looking forward to pushing on and being recognised for our other skills like Agile methodologies, Automation, Security, Usability and our excellent test management”.
One of the important areas of focus for Zoonou and other testing businesses at the present is cyber security and the need to continually upgrade skills and practices around it. Zoonou has both CAST and CSTP from CREST and is strengthening its security qualifications further in 2017 with schemes such as Cyber Essentials. Where necessary, we would also partner with specialists to provide further higher security testing, especially to the public sector, in the form of CHECK.
Zoonou is an established UK based testing business with an all staff complement. Over the last 10 years our ISTQB accredited team has helped our clients to deliver over 3,000 successful projects.
