ISTQB Advanced Level Test Analyst

A practical course in Advanced level testing


This course provides test engineers with advanced skills in test analysis, design, and execution. It provides test engineers with the ability to define and execute the tasks required to implement the test plan.


The course will teach attendees how to analyze the system, taking into considerations quality expectations. This training course gives detailed information on the specifics of different testing techniques, among them: evaluating system requirements, performing formal and informal reviews, evaluating requirement validity and testability, analyzing design, creating test design and implement test cases, evaluating risks, and using them for making decisions during the life cycle and to prioritize tests.


The course reviews the different reporting needed during the lifecycle, providing evidence for progress, and other measurements important to run the project and report about quality. Attendees will learn how to estimate effort for the different activities in the testing project lifecycle.


Through presentation, discussion, debate, hands on exercises, brainstorming and questioning, we shall go through terminology, methodology, concepts and tools to learn how to plan, design and run tests, how to track what we do and improve over time. We shall discuss how to function as testers within testing and other type of teams, how to be productive and efficient using test automation and other tools, how to produce working software and what is needed on the communication side to be a part of a team.


Relevant exercises and simulations are integrated into the course in order to close the gap between methodology and actual field implementation and enable participants realize what they need to be doing in their designated teams as testers from now on.
