Practical Test Analyst
It often happens that once a testing resource has completed a non-certified testing course that they are only equipped with book knowledge and no practical experience. The Practical Test Analyst Course is specifically designed to provide testing resources with sufficient practical experiences that are industry related.
|Virtual and Class-room
The course is structured in such a way that it allows interactive class discussions on real-life testing situations experienced on a day-to-day basis.
The course delegate (and the company) will benefit from this course, as standard methodologies and artifacts are reviewed and compared with the delegate’s own working environment. Taking this into consideration, the delegate will be sufficiently equipped to improve not only their own but also the company’s operational methodologies, test ware and test deliverables.
By attending the course, the delegate will receive a certificate to prove attendance of the course.
As an additional option, evaluation and feedback can form an integral part of this training course. All the exercises completed are marked and evaluated by the course presenter. Two weeks after the course, or a time period mutually agreed upon, a follow-up session will be held with each delegate. During this one-on-one session, the exercises handed in will be discussed and any shortcomings will be addressed accordingly. A summarized report will be presented to the delegate’s manager, highlighting their individual strengths and weaknesses.
Should the delegate not meet the learning objectives, follow-up training and mentoring can be arranged. The evaluations, feedback, follow-up training and mentoring will be available at an additional cost.
