Test Techniques - Advanced Level Training Course

Improve The Quality And Effectiveness Of The Tests You Design

Introduction

Our two-day Test Techniques – Advanced Level Workshop will provide you with practical guidance on the application of advanced test case design techniques (and measures of test coverage), and advice on the choice of which of these techniques and measures to use. The aim is to extend your tool-set of techniques from which they can then choose most effectively.

The Test Techniques – Advanced Level Workshop will give you practical hands-on experience of applying static analysis and test case design techniques to example problems relating to both code and business processes, each of which is supported by model answers.
