WHO ARE WE
The UK and Ireland Testing Board (UKITB) is made up of volunteers from within the UK. The Directors work on a voluntary basis on the board. All are specialists, practitioners, consultants and trainers that have experience in software testing and quality assurance related positions.
The board represents a cross section of testing companies from the UK (large companies, smaller companies and training providers) where no more than 49% of the board can be selected from any one company.
Each board member has a set of defined responsibilities as shown in the image.
