Testing Academy specialises in creating highly skilled testing professionals to meet today's increasing Information Technology system or infrastructure quality assurance demands.

The ultimate goal of the Test Analyst is to facilitate the delivery of premium quality systems, infrastructure or software meeting exact requirements as specified by the customer. Testing specialists achieve this through the application of a structured 5 stage testing process. They assess, review and inspect software in a controlled manner and strive to answer the million dollar question: Does the product built meet customer expectation?

The aim of this course is to equip delegates with the necessary skills required to become proficient Test Analysts. In addition delegates will learn the skills required to facilitate the delivery of a first class product to the customer having taken it through the complete testing lifecycle. Our course is designed for testers, software developers, test managers, quality managers and project managers. It is suited for anyone with an interest in testing.

Delegates will cover all the key aspects of software testing including a comprehensive overview of tasks, methods and techniques for effectively testing software i.e. what testing is, why testing is important, how testing is effected, when testing is done, how tests are documented and how results are collated.
