Sopra Group has a long history of development and successful delivery of high-quality public and in-house testing training across the UK and for our international clients. We are accredited by BCS Professional Certification (formerly ISEB) and by the UK Testing Board (UKTB) to provide courses for both the Certified Tester/Foundation and Advanced Level Certificates. The UKTB is the governing body within the United Kingdom representing the International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB).
We are one of only four UK-based training providers accredited for all three of the advanced qualifications (Test Analyst, Test Manager and Technical Test Analyst) and the only one with a training base in Scotland. Through these accredited courses, Testing Masterclasses and other specialised courses we can meet your testing training needs.
Our expert consultants carry out IT security health checks to identify vulnerabilities in IT systems and networks which may compromise the confidentiality, integrity or availability of information held on that IT system. The IT Health Check Service, or CHECK, was developed to enhance the availability and quality of the IT health check services that are provided to government. Companies belonging to CHECK are measured against high standards set by CESG. Therefore, customers can be assured that they will receive a high-quality service if the work is carried out by our CHECK accredited consultants.
CLAS is the Government's CESG Listed Adviser Scheme.

Our highly experienced consultants are part of the Scheme's pool of high-quality consultants approved by CESG to provide Information Assurance advice to government departments and other organisations who provide vital services for the United Kingdom.
