Objectives

  • Recognise and classify the typical risks associated with the performance, security, reliability, portability and maintainability of software systems
  • Create test plans detailing the planning, design and execution of tests for mitigating performance, security, reliability, portability and maintainability risks
  • Select and apply appropriate structure-based techniques to achieve defined coverage criteria based on code and design
  • Effectively participate in technical reviews with developers and software architects applying knowledge of typical mistakes made in code and architecture
  • Recognise risks in code and software architecture and use dynamic analysis to mitigate those risks
  • Use static analysis to suggest improvements to the security, maintainability and testability of code
  • Outline the costs and benefits expected from introducing particular types of test automation
  • Select appropriate tools to automate technical testing tasks
  • Understand the technical issues and concepts in applying test automation

"I did the ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course last year – achieving an 86% pass mark. This was in no small way attributable to the teaching received during the course – highly recommended."
