QC 11.00 Certification

 QC 11.00 Certification (HPO-M46)

Difference Between QC 10.00 and QC 11.00 Certification exams


Instead of Quality Center(QC) Software v11 it will now be known as Application Lifecycle Management(ALM) Software 11.
In QC 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, we 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).
