Maintenance of Competence requirements for RQTU members
What is Maintenance of Competence?
Maintenance of Competence is the method by which members of the RQTU demonstrate their continued competence in testing. Its purpose is to ensure that organisations and members of the public using the services of qualified test users can be confident of their competence, and therefore the professional standards of the services they receive.
The Maintenance of Competence system is also a valuable tool for RQTU members to ensure that they keep their testing-related knowledge and skills current, and to help identify any areas in which additional development is required.
How do I demonstrate my continued Maintenance of Competence in testing?
RQTU members are requested to read and comply with the following revised Maintenance of Competence requirements. A Maintenance of Competence Log template is provided.
