ISTQB Foundation Level certification is required for everyone who tests software because it:

What if I have no experience? Can ISTQB Foundation help me get a job?
Yes! ISTQB Foundation and ISTQB Agile testing certifications from ASTQB can sometimes make up for a lack of testing experience. Here is an example from a U.S. job posting, in which they asked for experience but will take certification in place of it: “At least 1 year of progressive experience in the validation of software systems. Foundation Level with Agile Tester ISTQB certification can substitute for this experience.”
