My course is designed with the novice tester in mind.
Whether you’re completely new to software development or have experience in other areas of software development and are now considering a move into the testing field, the materials are intended to give you a basic understanding of the software testing process and insight into your role and responsibilities as a professional software tester.
We’ll cover basic SDLC (Software Development Lifecycle Development) methodologies, both traditional, so-called “waterfall” projects as well as the more recent “Agile” style of development. Although you are not studying to become a developer, having an understanding of the software design and creation process will improve your skills and effectiveness as a tester.
After an overview of the development process, we’ll cover basic software testing techniques, most of which will be viewed from the perspective of someone who uses a Graphical User Interface (GUI), which is a technical software development term for the web page display that you normally use when interacting with any software program.
The courses are comprised of an overview of development and testing techniques followed by hands-on exercises designed to reinforce an understanding of the materials.
Upon successful completion of the course, you will have the knowledge and the hands-on experience that will enable you to confidently and thoroughly test a software application through a user interface.
The lessons are designed to present the materials to the novice tester in a simple, plain language format including a lesson introduction and a comprehensive review of the subject matter.
In addition to the standard course, customized training can be designed on request to focus on specific test techniques and software applications.
