This training course provides a comprehensive variety of methods and techniques for deriving and specifying software tests at the black box level (specification-based). It will equip you with hands-on experience on successfully selecting and applying techniques for test case derivation, such as equivalence partitioning, boundary value analysis, classification tree method, decision table method, state transition testing and domain testing. You will look into additional techniques such as explorative testing and how to put them to use. The seminar focuses on testing functional quality characteristics and testing usability and accessibility. Furthermore, the seminar deals with reviews as a simple, well established, and appropriate technique for an efficient check of specifications, source code and other substantial project documents. You will become familiar with the factors and methods that are key to successful reviews as an instrument of quality assurance in your projects. The seminar is topped off with a survey of useful tools to support your testing activities. The focus will be on test design tools, test data generators and editors as well as on a discussion of test automation. You will deepen your knowledge through exercises and you will benefit from exchanging ideas with other participants. You will be perfectly prepared for your participation in the certification test right after the course or at a date of your choice.
The training is recommended:
- Persons intending to participate in the certification
- Test Analysts
- Test Managers
- Test Consultants
- Experienced Software Testers
An Advanced Level Test Analyst can:
- perform the appropriate testing activities based on the software development lifecycle being used;
- determine the proper prioritization of the testing activities based on the information provided by the risk analysis;
- select and apply appropriate test techniques to ensure that tests provide an adequate level of confidence, based on defined coverage criteria;
- provide the appropriate level of documentation relevant to their testing activities;
- determine the appropriate types of functional testing to be performed;
- work effectively in a usability testing team;
- effectively participate in requirements / user story reviews with stakeholders, applying knowledge of typical mistakes made in work products;
- improve the efficiency of the test process with the use of tools
- Explain how and why the timing and level of involvement for the Test Analyst varies when working with different software development lifecycle models.

- Explain why test conditions should be understood by the stakeholders.
- For a given project scenario, select the appropriate design level for test cases (high-level or low-level).
- Explain the issues to be considered in test case design.
- Summarize the appropriate tasks for the Test Analyst when conducting test implementation activities.
- Summarize the appropriate tasks for the Test Analyst when conducting test execution activities.
- For a given situation, participate in risk identification, perform risk assessment and propose appropriate risk mitigation.
- Analyze a given specification item(s) and design test cases by applying equivalence partitioning.
- Analyze a given specification item(s) and design test cases by applying boundary value analysis.
- Analyze a given specification item(s) and design test cases by applying decision table testing.
- Analyze a given specification item(s) and design test cases by applying state transition testing.
- Explain how classification tree diagrams support test techniques.
- Analyze a given specification item(s) and design test cases by applying pairwise testing.
- Analyze a system, or its requirement specification, in order to determine likely types of defects to be found and select the appropriate black-box test technique(s).
- Explain the principles of experience-based test techniques, and the benefits and drawbacks compared to black-box and defect-based test techniques.
- Determine exploratory tests from a given scenario.
- Describe the application of defect-based test techniques and differentiate their use from black-box test techniques.
- For a given project situation, determine which black-box or experience-based test techniques should be applied to achieve specific goals.
- Explain what test techniques are appropriate to test functional completeness, correctness and appropriateness.
- Define the typical defects to be targeted for the functional completeness, correctness and appropriateness characteristics.
- Define when the functional completeness, correctness and appropriateness characteristics should be tested in the software development lifecycle.
- Explain the approaches that would be suitable to verify and validate both the implementation of the usability requirements and the fulfillment of the user's expectations.
- Explain the role of the test analyst in interoperability testing including identification of the defects to be targeted.
- Explain the role of the test analyst in portability testing including identification of the defects to be targeted.
- For a given set of requirements, determine the test conditions required to verify the functional and/or non-functional quality characteristics within the scope of the Test Analyst.
- Identify problems in a requirements specification according to checklist information provided in the syllabus.
- Identify problems in a user story according to checklist information provided in the syllabus.
- For a given scenario, determine the appropriate activities for a Test Analyst in a keyword-driven automation project.
- Explain the usage and types of test tools applied in test design, test data preparation and test execution.
