Building an Effective QA and Testing Process for Ongoing Validation  

2 Days  

"Good presenter! Randy held the interest of the audience and I really enjoyed the videos!"  


This course is designed to teach participants how to design and implement processes for quality assurance and quality control. The benefit from these processes is the continued quality of existing systems during ongoing operations and maintenance.  

This session is appropriate for software developers and managers, quality assurance and testing personnel, and systems support professionals. The following outline is a basic treatment of the topic. It is possible to expand on other essential topics by adding modules such as Unit Testing and Test Tools on a separate day of instruction.  

The workshop contains two team-based exercises which focus on having the participants write processes for ongoing testing and change control using their own organization’s unique attributes.
