Some strange thing is happening. I have a CV of a candidate for taking position in my project. They state they have
ISTQB certificate and provide certificate number. But I'm not able to find any information about how to verify if the certificate is valid.
I've searched around the Internet and all the results I get refer to the examination and courses providers (likely because of their well work in
SEO domain), but no results saying how to verify the issued certificate.
The most relevant resource I managed to find is http://scr.istqb.org but it declares that it keeps only ones issued not earlier than in years
2018-2017 (and even there is quite a small probability to find the required cert for 2k17).
I do not believe such a huge certification business does not provide some single-point verification resource, that would be reliable and comprehensive. I do likely miss some searching skills.
