Goals of participating in Testmanager - ISTQB® Certified Tester Advanced Level

The course addresses a project or test manager's typical tasks and problems.

It will help you develop the skills you will need for operative test management, enabling you to successfully plan, control and monitor software testing in your projects. You will familiarise yourself with methods of strategic test management which you can use to introduce, establish and continually improve software testing and reviewing. With these methods, software testing will become an effective, firmly embedded and tool-supported process in your business .

You will get to know a range of documents for planning tests that comply with international norms and standards and you will be introduced to the basics and interrelations of incident, risk and test management. You will learn which data on quality and error statistics can be captured during testing and how to make decisions on product releases, based on objective data obtained during testing.

You will get an overview of different organizational forms of software testing and their potential advantages and disadvantages. Thus, you will be able to come to well justified decisions on the organizational structure that best suit your specific situation.

The topic area “test process improvement” addresses the permanent challenge for test managers to adapt and enhance the applied processes. To meet this challenge, you will get to know different project improvement models and you will learn how to use them.

The course is rounded up by an analysis of the testers’ role in the company, their particular situation and the professional expertise and social skills they need.

You further deepen your knowledge with exercises and benefit from exchanging ideas with other participants. Attending this course will have you well prepared for taking the certification exam right after the course or at a date of your choosing.
