what do beginners in software testing need to know?

In this foundation level seminar, you learn the most important software testing terms and principles. Step by Step, we go through all the stages of the software testing process, from the planning to the specification to the testing and to the documentation of tests. We address professional test methods and show how they are connected methodically.

In contrast to the 3-day training course, we address the curriculum contents of the ISTQB® within 4 days to have more time for practical examples and discussions – both between our trainer and the trainees as well as among themselves. However, if you only have little time for trainings and would like to have a quick, compact introduction to the topic, then you may decide for the 3-day training course.

All our trainers have many years of experience in the field of software testing, and a have track record as consultants in small and big projects.
