The ISTQB® Certified Tester Foundation Level Model-Based Testing is a specialist module at the Foundation Level. Based on the ISTQB® Certified Tester – Foundation Level, the content of the Model-Based Tester syllabus provides additional skills for professional testers.

Model-Based Testing (MBT) is an advanced test approach using models for testing. It extends and supports classic test design techniques such as equivalence partitioning, boundary value analysis, decision table testing, state transition testing, and use case testing.

Business Outcomes
The basic idea is to improve the quality and efficiency of
the test design and test implementation activities by:

• Designing a comprehensive MBT model, typically using tools, based on project test objectives.
• Providing a MBT model as a test design specification. This model includes a high degree of formal and
detailed information that is sufficient to automatically generate the test cases directly from the MBT model.

MBT and its artifacts are closely integrated with the processes of the organization as well as with the methods,
technical environments, tools, and any specific lifecycle processes.
