Software QA Training Online. We offer high quality QA courses online. Our practical software testing training online gives you knowledge and expertise to start your career.

Practical Approach

With the idea of a 'picture worth a thousand words', we designed a qa course that focuses on developing practical software testing skills. We created a simulated testing environment where students are involved in all stages of the testing cycle: working with requirements, writing test cases, performing function, system and regression tests, developing automated testing scripts and reporting bugs using a real Defect Tracking System. A developer will fix bugs that the student found and release a fixed version of software (new build). Upon new build arrival, the student needs to retest the application to verify that bugs are fixed and no new bugs introduced.

We strongly believe that the value of such software testing training lies in its ability to involve each student in the real testing cycle, which, combined with the provided theoretical part of the course, will meet each individual's diverse needs and interests for both breadth and depth of content.

Prerequisites

There are no prerequisites for our qa courses and you don't need to be a computer geek to take it. But, you do need to be a strong PC and Internet user.

Learning Process

There are 29 lessons in "CF109 Software QA and Software Testing" program. Each lesson teaches you one specific testing activity such as writing test plans, designing test cases, performing function testing, etc.

A lesson contains 3 parts:

  1. Unit - theoretical materials presented in two forms:
    • web page format
    • podcast format (audio)
  2. Assignment - practice in doing real testing activity
  3. Quiz - a brief exam (10 questions related to the lesson)

Assignments will be graded by your instructor, while quizzes will be graded automatically. Each assignment involves testing a real application, and reporting software errors using an online defect tracking system. A developer will fix the bugs you found, and create a new build of the application, which you will be able to access. After accessing a new build, you should:

  • Verify that the bugs you found in the previous build were fixed (regression testing)
  • Continue with the next assignment.

Lessons 1-10 will teach you Software Testing Methodology and best testing techniques

Lessons 11-21 will teach you Test Automation

Lessons 22-23 will provide you with introduction to relational databases and SQL.

Lesson 24 will teach you fundamentals of configuration management, maturity models and testing standards.

Lesson 25 will will provide you with introduction to Virtual Machines.

Lesson 26 will introduce you to UNIX operation system.

If the average grade of all assignments and quizzes is less than 60%, the student will be awarded with Certificate of Attendance.

Internship

All students with the average grade 60% or higher are entitled to Internship - practice work as a Software Tester on a real software development project. The internship we provide is a part-time unpaid position with one of our cooperative software companies.

The internship has the following objectives:

  • Develop new skills and gain useful work experience
  • Boost marketability after graduation
  • Combine academic knowledge with hands on work experience

Companies look for people with experience and if you have that practical experience, your chances with them rise a great sum. Making sure you are as prepared as possible is important to stay on top in such a competitive industry.

Based on results of Internship, a reference can be provided by student request.
