My Professional Scrum Master Certification

It was already more than one year ago when I got my second professional certification in the field of Software Testing. This is the Professional Scrum Master (PSM).

Here is my said certification which strengthens my professional career:


My first certification in my field is the International Software Testing Qualification Board (ISTQB) which I got last 2012. 

Now that I have PSM and ISTQB which are both international certifications, the question goes, what other certification do I need to take in my field of software testing and engineering?! (RCB)

My ISTQB Certification!


 November 21, 2012 - Yes, it's exactly one year now since I had my first day here in my new office. I am now celebrating my one year anniversary! 

Since November is my anniversary month, I've started to share with you some of my company stories. The latest was during our Halloween Trick or Treat.

One of the significant things that I have acquired here in my company is the ISTQB (International Software Testing Qualification Board) Certification. I've passed the said prestige International Board Examination for Software Engineering last September and I've received the formal certificate last month.

Two months ago, I've shared with you my passing moment as well as the reviews I had undergone. Now, let me share with you the sweet fruit of success, my actual certificate!

A Surprising Envelope Mailed in My Office

A Letter from ISTQB Containing the Details of My Certification

 And This is My Precious ISTQB Certification!
The official certificate printed in hard board was mailed in our office. I got curious when the receptionist gave it to me since there's no address outside the brown envelope. And when I opened it, smile reflected on my face!

I produced copies of my certification as well as the official letter. Then I kept the original copies inside my treasure box! :)

Now I am proud to say that I am an International Software Engineer certified! Hope I've inspired you with my quick company story! (RCB)

Enough is Enough for ISTQB Review!


Imagine these bulk of papers I'm reviewing for the ISTQB Certification exam! Yup, I read these reviewer printouts to pass the examination! And thanks God I did it!

Last Monday, September 10, 2012, we took the said certification exam in Amorosolo, Makati City. The four of us who were wearing red all passed the exam! We were all nervous before going to the examination place but suddenly turns all happy as we leaved the place!

Before I took the exam, I had a one week preparation. But it was on weekend when I had a full blast of review. I read all these printouts, study the principles stated, and answered the 500 ISTQB questions! I even got lack of time blogging because I was occupied by reviews.




I was so thankful now that I already passed one of the most difficult board exams I took. I am now waiting for our certification to be awarded on us 6 to 8 weeks from now.

Many thanks also to my company who shouldered the expenses for this international board exam. The amount of the examination worth $170 or more or less Php8,000.

Now I have the guts of training my co-workers since I am now a Certified Software Test Engineer! Great!

I kept all those reviewers in proper place. I cherished them more now that I passed the exam. Some other days, I may use them. c",)

Red Spells a Lucky Charm!

We are Team Red! It's such a coincidence that the four of us were all wearing red yesterday, during the day that we took the ISTQB Certification exam.

Me and my three teammates took together the said examination on the same batch. We were surprised seeing each other wearing the same color - red!

Even the wall in the examination room is also painted in red! That's why right after the exam and right after we passed, we had our souvenir photos.

Here is our picture-taking lucky moment right after we passed the International Software Testing Board:


They say that red is a lucky color. And that proves to be true based our own experience!

Actually red is my favorite color since birth! I love the color of red. It symbolizes different things such as love, courage, life, and of course lucky charm! The last term is true in our case! Thanks God!

It also seems that we attended a red carpet premiere night because of our common red attire. Remember, most of the premiere nights I have already attended have actors wearing red?! Nice!

Now the four of us wearing red in the picture were all Certified Software Engineers! Thank you Lord for your blessings! c",)

I Am Now an ISTQB Certified Software Engineer!



September 10, 2012 is another milestone in my career. This is the date when I passed one of the important board exam and certification in our profession. This is the ISTQB or the International Software Testing Qualifications Board! This is an International Certification in the field of software testing engineering!

All the hardships in terms of time pressure, peer pressure, and overnight reviews during weekends were now turned to a sweet fruit that I'm starting to enjoy!

I had a very little time to have my own review for this certification. We had a month-long Monday review sessions for this certification but because of my too busy schedules, I wasn't able to attend most of the sessions! I've just got a serious review last week, one hour every after work and a full blast last Saturday and Sunday!

Thank God, I didn't only passed the exam, I even got a high score!



The examination is a computer-based exam consisting of 40 difficult questions. The passing score is 26 points or 65%. I got an overall correct answer of 30 points or 75%! Wow!

Above were the pictures of my examination result right after the exam. My certification will be given to us six to eight weeks now!

ISTQB certification is an International Board Exam! It is recognize all over the world in our field of Software Engineer. Certification represents recognition of a particular individual’s professional competence. It is prestige for the individual and a competitive advantage over non-certified individuals in the same field. Many companies consider ISTQB certification as a plus point for employees during appraisals. And during employee recruitment here and abroad, many companies prefer certified employees over non certified employees!

On my next post, I will share with you more of my success story pertaining to this prestige international certification. Thank you Lord for this another great blessing! c",)
