Course Duration: 4 days

This four-day tutor-led course includes lectures, exercises and practical work, as well as exam preparation. The course helps the advanced Test Analyst to plan, analyse, design, implement, execute and meet exit criteria, report and conduct closure activities for well developed test solutions.

After successfully completing the course and passing the exam, delegates should be able to:

  • 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 testing techniques to ensure that tests provide an adequate level of confidence, based on defined coverage criteria.
  • Provide the appropriate level of documentation relevant to the testing activities.
  • Determine the appropriate types of functional testing to be performed.
  • Assume responsibility for the usability testing for a given project.
  • Effectively participate in formal and informal reviews with stakeholders, applying knowledge of typical mistakes made in work products.
  • Design and implement a defect classification scheme.
  • Apply tools to support an efficient testing process.

Who is it for?

The ISTQB Certified Test Analyst Advanced Level is principally aimed at test practitioners who have achieved an advanced point in their careers in software testing and are expecting to be actively involved in the analysis, specification, design and execution aspects of software testing, and who want to increase their knowledge and skills beyond the levels covered by the Foundation and Intermediate qualifications.  This includes people in roles such as testers, test analysts, test engineers, test consultants, test managers, user acceptance testers and software developers.  This Advanced Level qualification is also appropriate for anyone who wants a deeper understanding of software testing, such as project managers, quality managers, software development managers, business analysts and management consultants.

About ISTQB and the ‘Certified Tester’ Scheme

Founded in 2002, ISTQB (International Software Testing Qualifications Board) is a not-for-profit association comprising 47 national boards (including the UKTB) covering 71 countries worldwide.

ISTQB has defined the Advanced certification as part of their ‘Certified Tester’ scheme that, with over 240,000 certifications, has become the de facto world-wide standard for software testing qualifications.

The ‘Certified Tester’ scheme:

  • provides a set of professional qualifications widely-recognised by employers, customers and peers;
  • enables software suppliers to hire and train certified testers and thereby gain commercial advantage over their competitors by advertising their tester recruitment and development policies; and
  • enables comparison of testing skills across different countries, testers to move across country borders more easily, and multi-national/international projects to have a common understanding of testing issues.

Entry Requirements

The entry requirements for the Certified Tester Advanced Level Test Analyst qualification are that the candidate must hold the ISTQB Foundation certificate. It is also suggested that candidates have a minimum of 3 years testing experience.

 

The Exam

To qualify as an internationally-recognized Certified Advanced Level Test Analyst and be issued with an ISTQB® Advanced Level Certificate, delegates must successfully pass the exam administered by the relevant National Board or Examination Provider.

On the last day of the course you will be issued Pearson VUE exam voucher.

Course Objectives

The objectives for the Certified Tester Advanced Level qualification are to:

  • gain recognition for testing as an essential and professional software engineering specialization;
  • provide a standard framework for the development of testers’ careers;
  • enable professionally qualified testers to be recognized by employers, customers and peers, and to raise the profile of testers and testing;
  • promote consistent and good testing practices within all software engineering disciplines;
  • identify testing topics that are relevant and of value to industry;
  • enable software suppliers to hire certified testers and thereby gain commercial advantage over their competitors by advertising their tester recruitment policy;
  • provide an opportunity for testers and those with an interest in testing to acquire an internationally recognized qualification in the subject.

    Intense and informative.

    Taking this course remotely in lockdown proved far more beneficial than I anticipated. I actually think there is a strong argument to take the course this way over classroom based. You take travel and potentially overnight stays out of the equation and the experience is much more relaxed and stress free. You can crack on with homework as soon as the day ends and don’t feel too tired to study or revise. My trainer was experienced and articulate enough to deliver the course to a high standard with the slides and a scratchpad to demonstrate. I don’t feel I missed out on anything by not doing this in a classroom. I would recommend virtual courses to anyone holding off booking right now due to lockdown.
