About this Course

This course is aimed at individuals who are involved in the day-to-day activities of identifying and writing tests as well as managers who need a deeper understanding of how their teams can be more effective. Deciding what needs to be tested and creating suitable tests is not an easy process. This course walks through a simple process from deciding what to test through identifying and creating suitable tests to writing the test steps. It looks at a number of different approaches for each stage and discusses their strengths and weaknesses. This course builds on the principles laid out in the ISTQB Certified Tester Foundation Level qualification and aims to give practical experience in analysing, designing and implementing tests. Through discussion and hands-on exercises it looks at the process of identifying and creating functional test cases for each phase in the software testing life cycle. With the emphasis on putting theory into practice, this course is highly practical and attendees will produce real test documentation over the two day period.
