Erik has been running training courses in the areas of software testing and requirements engineering for many years. He shares his extensive practical experiences in enthusiast and inspiring way. The training courses typically have a high attendee satisfaction score and for certification courses also a high pass rate.
Hereafter you will find an overview of the most popular training courses being run lately.
ISTQB FOUNDATIONS IN SOFTWARE TESTING
The IT industry today is still far from zero defects. The importance of software to society urges the need for effective software testing. With over 700.000 testers certified, ISTQB is the leading international certification scheme for test professionals. During this ISTQB testing foundation course you will learn about the principles of testing, test life cycle, static testing (reviews), test design techniques, test management and test tools.
ISTQB AGILE TESTER
Agile software practices are being employed within many development organizations worldwide. More and more testers are participating in Agile projects or are embedded within Agile teams. Many testers struggle to understand the Agile development process and their place in it. Learn the fundamentals of Agile development, the role of the tester in an Agile team, and Agile testing practices. Discussion will take place on what day-to-day Agile testing looks like, practice and theory could well somewhat different.
ISTQB ADVANCED TEST MANAGER
During this advanced course you will learn in detail about many aspects of test management including test planning, test strategy, risk analysis, estimation and reporting. Topics like reviews, people skills, tools and test process improvement will also be presented. Extensive practical exercises and discussions play an important role throughout this course. This 5 day course also prepares you for the exam “ISTQB Advanced Test Manager”.
ISTQB ADVANCED TEST ANALYST
This practical course is intended for software test professionals who want to develop their test analysis, design and execution skills in order to become highly-skilled Test Analysts. During this training you will practice and master black-box and experience-based test techniques. Other topics that are dealt with in details are reviews, non-functional testing (e.g., usability testing) and keyword-driven testing. This 3 day course also prepares you for the exam “ISTQB Advanced Test Analyst”.
TMMi is the leading model for test process improvement. It is applicable to both traditional and Agile environments. Attendees will be achieve a detailed understanding of the TMMi model and will afterwards be able guide and advice an organization or project when using the TMMi model as a basis for their test process improvement. TMMi based assessments are also discussed during this course. At end of the course attendees can take the official “TMMi Professional” exam.
WORKSHOP TEST DESIGN
During this practical workshop you will learn how to apply the most popular black-box test design techniques such as equivalence partitioning, test use cases and decision table testing. In addition the experience-based technique exploratory testing is presented in great detail. For each technique a number of exercises will be done starting with a small example and building up to a full, almost real-life, exercise. The major part of this workshop you will spent making test designs and test cases.
Test priorities should be based on a product risk assessment using business drivers as its key. PRISMA, a practical method for performing systematic product risk assessments is presented. It is explained how to carry out risk identification and analyzes, and how to use the outcome to select the most appropriate test approach to mitigate the risks. Learn how to apply risk-based testing in both traditional and Agile projects.
Common problems in requirements engineering are “How do we discover the real requirements?”, “How do we unambiguously document requirements?”, and “How do user stories and acceptance criteria relate to requirements?”. These questions and many more will be answered while helping the attendees to improve their skills in requirements engineering for both traditional and agile projects. With practical case studies and hands-on exercises, requirements issues and solutions are demonstrated.
