All the details about this certification like fee, scheduling, format, pre-requisites, etc. This is one of the questions every tester has in their mind. Which one to get certified as? Basically, these are two different certifications aimed at two different targets of people in the entire quality field.
One is not better than the other — they are just different. For those who are at the beginning of their careers in the field of Quality and want to acquaint and evaluate themselves in terms of their quality control skills, CSTE is for them.
CSQA is a little more advanced group of the testing fraternity who are both into Quality control and quality assurance. I hope this helps the readers determine which is more apt for them at the current time. Why should you aspire to be a CSQA?
As a part of the QA universe, you will have the best principles, practices, and code of conduct that will differentiate you from the other QAs. This vastly improves the whole QA-sphere. You will have more confidence in your day to day QA activities and can guide your peers better.
You provide more value to your employer with the skills you learn by taking this certification. It is wonderful for your own career growth. How does it work? The CSQA certification consists of an educational program that tests the level of competence in the principles and practices of Quality Assurance and control in the Information Technology IT Profession. These 10 categories are basically the syllabus for the certification examination.
I am also providing a screenshot for quick reference: click on image to enlarge Certification Preparation Steps Take some time to make a decision on when you want to take the test.

Try and see how the QA processes that you are currently following are similar or different from the guidelines given in the CBOK. During your preparation phase, try to apply the CBOK recommended practices and principles to your job and see how it helps you. I cannot emphasize this more.
CBOK is your bible. Give yourself a thorough understanding of the material in the CBOK and there is just no reason why you will not be able to succeed Conclusion I know many testers have negative views about testing certifications. But personally, this certification has helped me be more confident at my job, given me the necessary tools to be an efficient QA, has given my superiors and clients more faith in my capabilities and of course, makes my resume stronger.
The only concern for anyone thinking of taking this up might be the cost. It is a little expensive but checks with your companies about their continued learning policies for the associates.
You might be pleasantly surprised that the fee might be reimbursed. I wish you luck! Note — If you are interested to know more about different Software Testing certifications please read our earlier posts here and here.
