This course develops and supplements core testing principles allowing for the taking into account the typical circumstances that anyone involved in testing encounters in the workplace. It is for anyone involved in practical software testing activities. It is not role-specific and takes into account the typical cross-skills required for a tester at any level working in a collaborative software development environment.
This is a three day course with a combination of lectures, workshops, exercises and sample exam questions. The exam demonstrates that candidates can apply software testing knowledge and skills to practical real-life situations through scenario-driven questions and bridges the gap between the ISTQB Foundation and the role-based ISTQB Advanced Certificates (Test Manager, Test Analyst and Technical Test Analyst) and prepares candidates for more complex and in-depth role-based syllabi and scenario-driven examinations.
The BCS Professional Certificate – Software Tester can be used as a standalone certification and will not on its own enable candidates to advance to the higher-level certifications. Delegates who wants to go on the advanced ISTQB courses (such as the QASTATA, QASTATM & QAALTAE) they will need to sit the ISTQB Certified Tester Foundation level (STF-2) course and pass the exams.
