Software Testing Boot Camp

4 Days


This is a comprehensive workshop in software testing for people just getting into the field of software testing, or for people who just need a refresher course or validation for their current testing techniques. This is a practical hands-on seminar to cover the major phases and types of testing. You will learn and practice the testing process from beginning to end.

Your instructor will be an experienced practitioner and trainer in the QA and testing field. 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.

Software Testing Boot Camp 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. You will emerge from this workshop knowing how to develop test cases and test plans. You will also leave with the knowledge of how tools can help you perform testing.

Sometimes people feel intimidated by the technical aspects of software testing and lack the confidence they need to be credible testers in their organization. Learn the issues and processes for effectively testing software by attending this hands-on course.

This course is presented on an in-house basis. Please contact us for booking.
