Fundamentals of Software Testing Training

Testing is a critical role in software development that requires special skills and knowledge not commonly taught to software developers, business analysts, and project managers. This often results in insufficient time and resources being allocated for this important function, and quality suffers-as do the users of the software. Equally important is the need to measure quality quickly and efficiently, because limitations in resources and schedules are realities that aren’t going away. We need to do the best we can with what we have and still deliver high-quality, proven software.

This course provides an eye-opening view into this challenging task. You will get a complete picture of the testing process, how it fits into the development life cycle, how to properly scope and prioritize testing activities, and which techniques to use for optimal results. This software-testing training begins with a deep-dive into the Universal Testing Method and follows with a close look at testing phases, testing approaches, non-functional testing, and testing for different platforms. As time permits, you will cover bonus material that includes an introduction to automation testing and behavior-driven development.

Cases studies, examples, in-class exercises and reviews are used to reinforce the concepts and practices. You will gain experience in modeling the test space, establishing scope and application coverage, identifying “testing oracles”, writing test procedures, and more. You will leave the course with a wealth of new knowledge you can begin to apply immediately.


  • Develop a model of the application
  • Use your model to determine test coverage
  • Identify test oracles for the application
  • Create test cases based on the oracles
  • Run your tests against the live application

Intended Audience

  • Testers of all types and levels
  • Professionals from other disciplines who perform their own testing or are involved in testing
  • Quality assurance (QA) professionals, including QA managers and directors
  • Software engineers
  • Business analysts
  • Project managers
  • IT specialists (security, capacity, management, networking, etc.)
  • Business stakeholders
  • Outsourcer staff (buyers and suppliers)
  • Application development managers
