Beaming Knowledge in Africa in partnership with KLab organized an ISTQB® CTFL training for members of its ongoing Freelancer Program which aims to give young IT enthusiasts the skills to help them improve their job prospects and enter the labor force market. 20 IT freelancers attended the 5-days training of the internationally accredited ISTQB® CTFL syllabus and learned the current techniques and practices applied in the software testing world today.
Jean de Dieu Tuyishime, a product manager from Bag Innovation said,” We’re currently developing a new product and I thought software testing would be a great skill to have as I would be assisting the software developers throughout the whole process. The training was very helpful because it was detailed and structured and I liked that because I’ve been doing software testing but not in a structured way but I came to realize that there are many things I could have done better. With the certificate and knowledge that I’ve gained during the training, I believe that I’m going to do a better job and also expand my skills to the African market.”
The training which took place from 25th – 29th October 2021 brings the total number of ISTQB® CTFL trained specialists in Rwanda under the Beaming Knowledge in Africa Initiative to 100 people.
