Software Testing Training

Software Testing Training Course Description

Software testing training teaches you the advanced software testing and principles for today’s rigorous testing demand and provides you powerful tools and techniques to reduce software defects, improve the quality and enhance your business success. Tonex as a leader in the security industry for more than 15 years is now announcing software testing training that helps you to recognize the software bugs and testing approaches related to software testing for computer systems, webs or mobile systems.

Tonex has served the industry and academia with high quality conferences, seminars, workshops, and exclusively designed courses in cybersecurity.

This course covers a variety of topics in software testing such as: basics of software testing, fundamentals of graph theory needed for software testing, software development life cycle, distributions and data analysis in software testing, software testing strategies and static testing. Moreover, you will be introduced to usability testing, data flow testing, mobile software testing, functional testing, software testing design techniques and management and a lot of labs and hands-on examples.

By taking software testing training by Tonex, you will learn about the life cycle of software development from methodologies, tools, evolution of software development and phased development methods to analysis, design, construction and installation stage.

Learn about the different methodologies applied for software testing including: static testing, white/black box testing, performance testing, and system testing or even usability tests.

The software testing course by Tonex is an interactive course with a lot of class discussions and exercises aiming to provide a useful resource for software testing. This training mainly focuses on reducing the gaps between the software production and real world needs. Therefore, software testing has to be put into the early phase of  introductory computing so that it can help professionals in their software development careers.

If you are an IT professional who specializes in software testing and needs to validate your skills, you will benefit from the presentations, examples, case studies, discussions, and individual activities upon the completion of the software testing training that will prepare you for your career.

Learn about the fundamentals of software testing, software testing throughout the software life cycle, static techniques, test design techniques, software test management and necessary tools for software testing.

You will also learn about usability testing categories and approaches, different data flow testing principles such as: define/use testing, usage nodes, I-use, C-use or definition-use paths.

Our instructors at Tonex will help you to master all software testing design techniques by introducing the comprehensive risk analysis, boundary value analysis, decision table testing, and path testing or exploratory testing approaches.

Finally, software testing training will introduce a set of labs, workshops and group activities of real world case studies in order to prepare you to tackle all the related software testing challenges.
