    Hi Hrishikesh, Well no experience is small or go waste. Your experience as a software developer might not help you much theoretically but I am sure during the 5 years you must be well versed in time management, managerial skills, work aptitude and organizational environment.
    So do not loose heart and prepare yourself as a Software Tester. For your help I am sending you link of institutes that offer you certificate and diploma courses in the field you aspiring for.
    Go through the above list and take the right decision by visiting every institute's website individually. Hope this helps you.
    Wish you great luck.

    Shifting from development to testing is normally unusual but certainly your development experience will help you immensely in testing and finding bugs . In testing training you will be introduced to various testing tool as well .
