iSQI: How did you find out about this certification?
RM: I found this certification through a post of Rex Black in LinkedIn.
RM: Because I am experienced in automation (mainly using Selenium) and I was not certified.
iSQI: How would you rate the contents of the exam in relation to the syllabus?
RM: The contents are adequate comparing them. Reading the syllabus, studying Selenium and working with this tool during some months are enough to be certified.
iSQI: Would you recommend it to others and if so why?
RM: I would recommend this certification to others because it is excellent for the resume of the professional and there are a lot of opportunities nowadays related to automation of tests. To be certified by a recognized institute like iSQI is a very good differential.
