Description
  • Develop a plan to integrate automated testing into the testing process.
  • Evaluate tools and technology for automation customized for your projects.
  • Create an approach and methodology for building a test automation architecture (TAA).
  • Design and develop test automation solutions that meet the business needs.
  • Learn approaches to enable the transition of testing from a manual to an automated approach.
  • Discover how to create automated test reporting and metrics
  • Understand how to manage and optimize testing assets to facilitate maintainability 
 
This course provides participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to implement automation for software projects. The course focuses on the concepts, methods, tools, and processes for automating dynamic functional tests and the relationship of those tests to test management, configuration management, defect management, software development and quality assurance processes.
 
Methods described are generally applicable across a variety of software lifecycle approaches (e.g., agile, sequential, incremental, iterative), types of software systems (e.g., embedded, distributed, mobile) and test types (functional and non-functional testing).
 
Real-world practical exercises reinforce learning objectives, strengthen the understanding and application of topics in the course and prepares participants for the exam.
 
Who Should Attend
Professionals in roles such as software developer, tester, test analysts, test engineer, test consultant, test lead or manager and anyone desiring to secure advanced automation skills and/or complete the ISTQB Advanced Test Automation Engineer certification.
 
This course may also be appropriate for anyone who wants a deeper understanding of software test automation, such as project managers, quality managers, software development managers, business analysts, IT directors, and management consultants.
 
This certification is aimed at professionals who are working within a tool supported software testing environment. It is also for professionals who are planning to start working within a tool supported software testing environment in the future, or are working within companies that plan to do so.
 
Individuals who have received the ISTQB Foundation Level certification and have met the criteria for taking the advanced certification exams. For more information regarding the criteria for taking the advanced examinations, go to www.ASTQB.org.
