Details on QTP11 certification

With the introduction of QTP 11, it seems HP is keen to change many things.  Earlier they used to come up with a new certification only after a gap of 2-3 years. QTP 11 was introduced in Sep’10 . In July 2011, HP has already announced the arrival of QTP 11 certification. QTP 10 certification thus becomes obsolete now. In case you are looking for QTP 11 certification read on…

What are the major changes between QTP 10.0 certification exam and QTP 11.0 certification exam?

In QTP 10.0 and earlier versions you need to take both QC exam(HP0-M31) AND QTP exam(HP0-M39) to get AIS certificate from HP.  Starting with QTP 11/ALM 11, you just need to take one core exam that is HP AIS – Functional Testing v11 (Code HP0-M47) OR HP Application Lifecycle Management 11.x Software (Code HP0-M46).
Since you are reading a QTP blog, I assume you would want to take HP AIS – Functional Testing v11 (Code HP0-M47) exam. (Informally known as QTP 11 certification exam)

  • Number of items: 69
