Popis kurzu

This 3-day course will suit software testing professionals who wish to build on the techniques taught at Foundation Level in order to become highly-skilled technical testers. It includes a number of practical exercises to reinforce the extra techniques taught. The course explores ways to plan, prepare and test using technical test techniques across the Software Development Lifecycle. It deals extensively with component testing, white box testing, static analysis, non functional testing and test automation.

An Advanced Level Technical Test Analyst can:

  • recognize and classify the typical risks associated with the performance, security, reliability, portability and maintainability of software systems;
  • provide technical elements to the planning, design and execution of tests for mitigating performance, security, reliability, portability and maintainability risks;
  • select and apply appropriate white-box test techniques to ensure that tests provide an adequate level of confidence, based on design coverage;
  • effectively participate in reviews with developers and software architects applying knowledge of typical defects in the code and architecture;
  • improve the quality characteristics of code and architecture by making use of different analysis techniques;
  • outline the costs and benefits to be expected from introducing particular types of test automation.
  • select appropriate tools to automate technical testing tasks;
  • understand the technical issues and concepts in applying test automation.

Advanced level courses are suitable for anyone who is interested in progressing an established career in software testing. This includes people in roles such as testers, test analysts, test engineers, test consultants, test team leads, test managers, user acceptance testers and software developers. They may also be of interest to anyone who wants a deeper than Foundation level understanding of software testing, such as project managers, quality managers, software development managers, business analysts, IT directors and management consultants. The Advanced Technical Test Analyst course is particularly aimed at testers whose role involves working with code or with the developers who write it, either to assist in the testing of safety-critical / business-critical code or to create test automation scripts, or who need to perform the more technical types of testing such as performance, security, reliability, portability and maintainability testing.

Poznámka

In order to take an ISTQB Advanced level certification exam, it is necessary to already have the CTFL certificate and to “satisfy the Exam Board which examines them that they have sufficient practical

experience to be considered Advanced Level qualified“. The CTFL certificate is not a pre-requisite for attending this training course. It is, however, essential that attendees have either obtained it or, at least, have undergone an ISTQB-accredited Foundation level training course. It is further recommended that delegates also have:

  • at least one year’s practical experience of software testing;
  • at least a theoretical understanding and preferably some practical experience of basic programming.
