It gives us immense pleasure to announce that On October 25, 2023, 1Rivet achieved a platinum-level partner with ISTQB.

Established in 1998, ISTQB is a not-for-profit organization that strives to acquire excellence in software testing. It maintains a Body of Knowledge that enables testers to be certified based on internationally recognized best practices. ISTQB® continues to evolve and the internationally recognized Certified Tester scheme is a portfolio of certifications that develop, extend, and validate testing skills. The scheme is built around syllabi created by a global network of experts, the ISTQB® Glossary, sample exams, and the Testing Body of Knowledge (TBOK).

The globally recognized software testing accreditor has four partnership levels for its Partner Program: Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Global. The eligibility criteria for a Platinum Partnership include gaining –

  • At least 30 certification points are earned through certificates obtained by employees or external consultants who provide services for more than 70% of their time.
  • At least three Advanced Level Certificates.

Thanks to the hard work and dedication of our diligent software testing engineers, 1Rivet became an ISTQB Platinum partner alongside roughly 100 other companies worldwide. This achievement highlights the software testing capabilities of 1Rivet and showcases that it aligns with the relevant global quality standards.

1Rivet currently employs around 50 software testers, among which 70% are ISTQB certificate holders. 1Rivet achieved 85 points, far exceeding the eligibility criteria for a Platinum Partnership.

  • 35 Foundation Level certificates,
  • 11 Agile Extension certificates, and
  • 13 Advanced Level certificates.

The benefits of the ISTQB Platinum Partnership include access to the Beta version of the new ISTQB Syllabi and mutual ISEB (Information System Examination Board) and ISTQB recognition, among others.

Chief Delivery Officer Derek Swank was thrilled that 1Rivet is now listed as a platinum partner and had a simple message for his team: “A huge thank you to everyone who clearly put in a lot of work to achieve the recognition.”

1Rivet continues to increase its global footprint with recent expansion into the UK, building on operations in the USA, India, and Australia. Eric Middleton, Chief Executive Officer, said, “As we grow, it is critical that we not only maintain our quality levels but that we improve. Achieving a globally recognized standard of excellence is another step in the right direction.”
