This course provides test engineers with advanced skills in test analysis, design, and execution. This hands-on course provides test engineers with the ability to define and carry out the tasks required to put the test strategy into action. The course will teach attendees how to analyze the system, taking into account the user’s quality expectations. They will learn how to evaluate system requirements as part of formal and informal reviews, using their understanding of the business domain to determine requirement validity. Attendees will know how to analyze, design, implement, and execute tests, using risk considerations to determine the appropriate effort and priority for tests. They will be able to report on testing progress and provide necessary evidence to support their evaluations of system quality. Attendees will learn how to implement a testing effort that supports the explicit and implicit testing objectives.
