Course Overview

This engineering testing course is aimed at those about to embark on a career in software testing. It is suitable for apprentices, people new to testing and others seeking cross-function training.

It will provide a through grounding in structured and systematic test techniques which can be applied throughout the software development lifecycle, whether traditional, Agile or DevOps. We will begin with those techniques which can be applied at the start of the development project, on the requirements and user stories. We will continue with those which can be applied whilst the developer is writing code; so that code quality may be improved, when it more cost effective to do it. We will also look at techniques which can be applied once the code has been checked in for test and explore those suitable for use at system testing and those for use at user acceptance testing.

  1. Scott Forber| Apprentice Cloud Developer| Valto

    John provided a great introduction to testing for our development team. The examples he provided were very clear and excellent in demonstrating testing processes. I also enjoyed the back and forth Q&A style teaching approach rather than it being a 2 day lecture. I am very pleased with this training and feel I have learned a lot in those 2 days.

  2. Alex Hendrick | Test Analyst Apprentice | IBM

    It was a fantastic experience with a lot of useful information. The class size was great with good interaction between the learners and the instructor. I would rate the course highly and John did a fantastic job of explaining details.

  3. Naomi Endersby | Test Consultant | kyndryl

    Excellent, personalised, collaborative

  4. Adriano Aru | Software test engineer | IBM

    Course covered a wide range of topic in good detail and had enough exercises to go through the differnet approaches and methods to testing.

  5. Ibrahim Waraich | test engineer | IBM

    the course was rely good Rosie Sheldon was rely good at explaining how things work

  6. Mark Baber | Academy Engineer | Principality Building Society

    Rosie was very good at going through the training material with us and was very enjoyable – she explained concepts well and got us involved in activities to ensure we were able to fully understand what we were doing.

    She also managed to deal with 3 people on cameras whilst keeping an eye on 1 person without a microphone – which is difficult to do.

  7. Zak Polley | Software Test Engineer/Test Analyst | IBM

    Very thorough explanations of all the concepts and test techniques covered, plenty of class engagement and applications and realisation of labelling the techniques to what we do already in our day-to-day testing lives on projects

  8. Rio Kandekore|Software Test Engineer|IBM

    Rosie was a very well spoken trainer who broke down the training very well. I was able to understand the content and was able to contribute to disscussions and activities. Thank you Rosie!

  9. George Stephens|Test Engineer|IBM

    Rosie was very friendly and kind whilst teaching the course. She clearly knew more than just the content she was teaching and was able to offer different ways of viewing the content in order to help us understand the concepts. Overall she was a fantastic trainer.

  10. Naomi Pierce | Technical Presales Specialist | Techdata Ltd

    The course was very insightful, John was knowledgeable and was able to take questions and simplify things when asked. It’s given me a view into what Test Engineers (and all of the other roles associated) are tasked with doing and how some of their techniques can be helpful with our day-to-day roles.

  11. David Cooke | Technical Presales Specialist | Tech Data

    The course was very informative and I feel like I’ve been given a good introduction to Test Engineering and the many different methods and processes that can be used. I did not have much knowledge or experience in this subject at the beginning, but John was able to explain things at the right level and pace to help me learn, and was happy to explain things in more detail where required.

  12. Megan Mather | technical presales specialist | tech data

    Instructor explained things well and made it clearer to understand. structure of the course was good

  13. Steven Hutton | Technical Presales Specialist | Tech Data

    Really insightful and interactive;John was a very engaging and interesting coach – thank you

  14. Charles Lister | Software Engineer Apprentice | IBM

    I found that the information on the course was delivered in an extremely comprehensive manner as John’s explanations did well to ensure that points mentioned were explained in a manner for all to understand.

  15. Samuel Green | Software Tester | IBM

    I thought the instructor was great at explaining concepts in detail without causing information overload. The platform allowed for quick note taking and John used lots of live diagrams and notes to really bring the topics alive.
    There was also a good mix of exercises vs discussion

  16. Ali Guler | Software Test Engineer Apprentice | IBM

    Very well structured, very informative but not an information overload. Taught us many different methodologies and paradigms

  17. Luca Gaeta | Test Engineer | IBM

    Very informative, trainer explained concepts well.

  18. Emrys Ruck | Software Tester |IBM

    Good course with a helpful and patient instructor

  19. William Pollyn | Software Test Engineer |IBM

    Overall the course was very informative and packed with information which I enjoyed learning. Maybe a few more engagement exercises would be useful.

  20. pacey clark | Software Test Engineer |IBM

    Good detail, I liked the examples and the walkthrough of the different types of reporting tests. It was engaging and a nice short course

  21. Samadul Islam | Software Test Engineer |IBM

    She was extremely lovely in her learning. so skilled a asset so well explained i really enjoyed this course lernt alot

  22. Will Blakeney|Software Tester|HMRC

    The course has been informative and has introduced me to new techniques. Not all of these techniques would be relevant to my specific job, but I guess that is the nature of software testing, it could be useful at some point down the line.

    I felt that the exercises given throughout the course were the main down side to this. The tax related documents and the examples were not best suited to testing, so I felt it confused us learners and also Rosie at some points.

    Otherwise Rosie is very knowledgeable and has been patient with us throughout the sessions.

  23. Keiron Webb|Business Support & Change Analyst|Old Mutual Wealth

    Rosie has good knowledge of the course material and presenting it however she may need to review the data within the course for presenting and examples as some confusion was caused when she got a little confused about the data.

  24. Gavin Ware|Test Analyst|Hollingdale Consultancy Services

    It was easy to follow and the instructor was very friendly and patient. The tasks were well laid out and helped to understand the course content better.
