Our training workshops form a set of classes that cover all areas of testing and quality assurance.

We usually initiate a training programme by working with you to select the sessions which will deliver greatest benefits. These are then tailored so that the examples and exercises use material that the attendees will be familiar with. This enables them to apply the learning directly they return to their desks rather than trying to reinterpret it for a different situation.

These training programmes are not aimed solely at testers. A lot of testing and assurance activities are performed by programme managers, project managers, business analysts, systems analysts, designers, technical architects and users. A small amount of concentrated training can dramatically improve their effectiveness and the overall value derived from testing.
