Introduction• This course will give the participant an introduction to verification which includes a number of different aspects• Different tester roles – what different types of testers are there and what competence is needed for each role?• Introduction to test tools – which tools are used and how do they work on a very basic level• Testing mindset – how a tester should approach their work, their stakeholders, developers, and so on• And a brief introduction to everything included in the other course
Basics• This course will include everything a new tester needs to know• How to work in the early stages of development – requirements, system models, and how to work with this in an agile environment• Different test methods and how to use them in scope selection• How to design scripted tests and exploratory charters• How to execute test cases and exploratory sessions• How to reports test results and defects• How to continue to develop skills and competence
Test Automation & Tools• This course is suitable both more testers and developers• Focus on test automation – what tools to use and how to design automated test cases• Hands on approach with exercises• Testability mindset – what to think about when it comes to testability• Also a discussion around tool supported testing and how to think about tools and testing• Test Environment Analysis – general information regarding how this is done
Test Management• Discussions around different kinds of test organizations – benefits and problems with the different setups• Test process – how to document test process, and how it looks in the organization• Test planning – how to based on the test process plan the different test activities for a project• How to communicate with different stakeholders, and how to identify the correct stakeholders• KPI, Lessons Learned and how to identify improvement areas
Summary• With this learning and development plan the competence of the whole organization will improve to a hygiene level• There is a lot more to learn after completing all four courses• Important to get not only testers to participate in the courses
