In the course, students get a comprehensive knowledge of the theoretical background and methodologies of software testing, as well as getting prepared for the ISTQB Certified Tester Foundation Level exam. We discuss a wide range of practical examples of software testing and we practice exam questions during the training.

Chiefly for students interested in IT who wish to work in software testing within the IT sector, or are already working in that field. Senior and medior software testers are also welcomed to participate, because the training summarizes the field of software testing very well, a lot of practical examples help the participants strengthen their knowledge and help them to prepare for the exam.

At least a basic knowledge of English since the course material is in English and you are also recommended to take the certification exam in English.

 

 

This course is also available in e-learning format!

Students of the course will learn about the theoretical background of software testing its various methodologies, following the official course material of the International Software Testing Qualification Board.

Masterfield Training Center was the first training institution to be accredited by ISTQB, enabling us to hold official exam preparation courses. Besides teaching a lot of the theory and practice of software testing, this course also gives students the knowledge needed to pass the Certified Tester Foundation Level exam.

The success of our course is supported by the very high pass rate of our students. We are unique in Hungary in that any students failing the exam may retake our next Certified Tester Foundation Level course free of charge.

This training course presents a comprehensive overview of methods and techniques for deriving and specifying software tests based on the system’s implementation and structure (“white box tests”). On completing the course, attendees will be able to select and apply techniques for test case derivation, such as control flow or data flow testing as well as static and dynamic analysis. We will look at non-functional testing techniques, such as reliability testing, portability testing, performance, load and stress testing. We will also discuss how to succeed in building robust automation architectures and using a variety of tools to reach quality targets.
