This is a quick start course in software testing for people just getting into the field, or for people who just need a refresher course or validation for their current testing techniques.

You will learn the terminology, process, and challenges of testing in the real world. As a result of attending this seminar, you should have a good working knowledge of software testing and what it takes to design and conduct an effective test of software, regardless of the technology.

Basic Training in Software Testing will help you become more comfortable and confident in testing software applications at just about any level of detail: unit, integration, system, and user acceptance.
