ISTQB Advanced Test Manager Course

I think the course is quite out of date as to how testing works now and hasn't moved with the times, there has been a huge shift to more agile ways of working and this course seems to be more focussed at waterfall.

The content jumped around a lot, i would have liked to have seen more example exam questions. The trainer did have to much interest in analysing answers to questions and there was a lot of of reading of slides. I prefer to do more short quiz's and then analysing the results and where you could have improved or how you could have answered differently. I think the questions i have seen seem deliberately difficult and ambiguous so more 'training' of the way the questions are posed and answered would have been very beneficial.

I not sure how much use this course will be for me in my day job due to it being quite out dated and maybe that was my misunderstanding of the syllabus

Enjoyed the course and the trainer was very. good.

Karen is very personable but i found a lot of the course was read from the slides and the day reader notes without much more additional content - language is confusing at times and there is a lot of content to revise

The course was really good, definitely would like the practical side of it to help inbed the detail a little more and have some hands on experience. Theory side of it was intense but really informative and retained a good pace with examples along the way to help apply the information.

Helpful to look at test automation 'from the ground up', filling gaps in knowledge having joined as tester in a project with already established automation frameworks.

Really well explain. Angelina was amazing and really careful with the attention to detail, making sure we all understood and comprehend the logic behind the words.

ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course (CTFL) v4.0

Course was informative and went over a lot of information throughout the 3 days. Maybe would have benefited from another half day to ensure things were not as rushed towards the end to make sure everything was covered.

ISTQB Foundation Level Course - CTFL

ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course (CTFL) v4.0

Needs to be more than 3 days so we can have more time to solidify everything

ISTQB Foundation Level Course - CTFL

ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course (CTFL) v4.0

More condensed in the first days, less in the last day.

ISTQB Foundation Level Course - CTFL

Very informative and helpful course. All of the areas were covered well and in detail with support to go over more difficult areas as needed. I'd definitely consider taking another course through this provider.

Rosie is an excellent trainer. The course is a good pace and does not give information overload. Questions / scenarios throughout are also helpful.

ISTQB Foundation Level Course - CTFL

Richard was excellent at guiding us through the course material, pulling real-life examples where possible to keep the audience engaged. His method of delivery was calm and confident while still delivering with enough emotion to keep things interesting, making him one of the best presenters I've come across. Well done Richard!

ISTQB Foundation Level Course - CTFL

ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course (CTFL) v4.0

The course has been interesting. There has been a lot of new information however Richard has been a brilliant trainer. His teaching style is great, with the use of slides, the whiteboard for more interactive detail, exam questions, and the regular recaps of information which help to piece it all together. From not know anything about testing, i feel comfortable with the foundations and confident with the approaching exam. The course content and information is accessible and detailed.

ISTQB Foundation Level Course - CTFL

Knowledgeable trainer, content was detailed and thorough. Good to have access to past papers with separate answer sheets

ISTQB Foundation Level Course - CTFL

Richard was good at articulating concepts and spoke in a clear and concise way. He emphasised the importance of group involvement and discussion

ISTQB Foundation Level Course - CTFL

ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course (CTFL) v4.0

All the concepts were really well explained. Resources were easy to access and really helpful. Personal preference would be to have more interactive learning as struggle to listen and concentrate for such long periods of time (sometimes 2hours at a time).

AI in software Testing

ISTQB Foundation in Artificial Intelligence for Testers

The course was engaging and interesting, with a strong focus on understanding AI fundamentals that built to integrating testing into AI development and AI into testing. It was a good mix of lectures, group exercises and solo work. If I had one suggestion for improvement, it would be to include more practical work around testing AI-based systems specifically (e.g., examples of how to apply some of the more theoretical techniques we have learned)

AI in software Testing

ISTQB Foundation in Artificial Intelligence for Testers

Suggestion: Every morning starts with a recap of the previous day's training.

A few suggestions for the .pdf-files:
- Exercise guide section 18.1 step 10 : The parameter in Weka, which you need to set to 300, is called numIterations in version 3.8 of Weka. In version 3.7 and earlier it was called numTrees.
- the .arff-files are .csv files, but cannot be opened in all non-English versions of Excel. Eg. the Danish version use ";" - not "," - as separator.

ISTQB Foundation Level Course - CTFL

ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course (CTFL) v4.0

Very intense but very informative. Trainer took time to explain the more complex stuff. Practice exam questions were also useful in understanding what could have been potentially missed in the training.

ISTQB Foundation Level Course - CTFL

The course has been very informative. It’s been easy to keep focused and highlighted areas I need to spend more time revising and learning.

ISTQB Foundation Level Course - CTFL

ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course (CTFL) v4.0

Trainer was great, however I struggle to learn from lectures and generally learn better with a more hands on/exercise based approach.

Content was well presented with clear and concise explanations of the topics. Past papers and home exercises were provided for revision. Trainer adept and answering questions + giving detailed breakdowns of past paper example where requested.

ISTQB Foundation Level Course - CTFL

ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course (CTFL) v4.0

The course was very thorough but easy to follow along with. Richard made sure that everyone understood what was being conveyed before progressing and was knowledgeable too. It feels like a basic understanding of testing was important to the course as terminology used was implied as standard.

ISTQB Foundation Level Course - CTFL

ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course (CTFL) v4.0

The trainer was knowledgeable and answered questions. The pace of the course was also good.

I liked the fact that when other topics were covered, the trainer gave context.

ISTQB Foundation Level Course - CTFL

The course was well paced and the instructor had clear explanations. I found the exercises and additional resources very helpful.

ISTQB Foundation Level Course - CTFL

ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course (CTFL) v4.0

Good course and content. I did find it little hard to concentrate for the longish periods with lots of new material a pace. That's the nature of a 3 day course I though I suppose. If I was primarily a tester I expect this would be much easier. Still goood though

ISTQB Foundation Level Course - CTFL

ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course (CTFL) v4.0

The course has been very helpful in providing valuable information in such a short time. Even though there is a lot of content to go through, it is easy to understand, which is mainly thanks to Richard and the way he goes through the slides and is able to deliver the content. Very nice, valuable course thank you.

ISTQB Test Analyst Course

ISTQB Advanced Test Analyst

Some aspects were only briefly covered, felt there could be some more in depth coverage, but difficult to please everyone on the course

ISTQB Test Analyst Course

ISTQB Advanced Test Analyst

The course was very useful, content very applicable and I feel satisfied with the overall course/exam structure.

I would like to add that the original TSG email mentioned the course begin son the 17th January not 15th January. It was only because my colleague also attended did I find out on the Monday morning I should have been in attendance. Thought I'd mention this as I understand its an automated process and there should be a root cause analysis to how this happened to avoid confusion in the future.

Apart from that I would highly recommend the course for others in the future.

ISTQB Test Analyst Course

ISTQB Advanced Test Analyst

I found a lot of the slides were being skipped over and not as much of the course was actually taught. There were a lot of questions to everyone asking what they do in their role rather than teaching the theory. This was also called out by another participant at the end of the course who has already sat the course before. They said some areas were rushed and had they not done the course before they might not know all they needed to. This is concerning to me that if I've actually been taught what I need for the exam.

ISTQB Foundation Level Course - CTFL

ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course (CTFL) v4.0

Coming from a background with no testing experience I found this course to be a bit more advanced than the foundation level it was stated. I thought we would be being taught on how to create test scripts/suites and how to run tests.

ISTQB Foundation Level Course - CTFL

ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course (CTFL) v4.0

I found the course interesting, entertaining and above all informative. The course had 6 people attending which was a great size. Karen knew her subject and was able to explain complicated idea's and answered all our questions. She kept it light and I enjoyed every day on the course. I learnt loads.

ISTQB Foundation Level Course - CTFL

ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course (CTFL) v4.0

The course was useful in that it gave me confidence that what I have been doing is correct. Also, it helped to categorize (or put a name to) the practices I'm doing. There are many useful testing tips for the exams.
I found mock exams quite difficult and tricky (very wordy). I can see the effort to incorporate traditional and modern SDLCs, and there are many things in common but I've been practicing agile for many years, so I would appreciate if the foundation was also available for agile.

ISTQB Foundation Level Course - CTFL

ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course (CTFL) v4.0

The course was good, interesting to build upon existing knowledge; however it can be lacking in crucial information for absolute beginners who have never worked in testing or even in IT altogether.

There should also be additional entry information about test automation.

ISTQB Foundation Level Course - CTFL

ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course (CTFL) v4.0

I enjoyed the course - felt very intensive as the syllabus is very full. Trainer gave great insights and personal stories from her time as a tester. Slides felt overly busy though, hard to consume all the information fully when there are a hundred and one things being shown at one time. So a simplified slide deck would be personally preferred.

Homework and End of Exercise activities were also good - only problem is that the questions in the mock papers are dubbed 'harder' than the actual exam. This isnt necessarily bad thing as it prepares you fully for the worst case scenario - however having a fairer mix of questions set would be an improvement.

ISTQB Foundation Level Course - CTFL

ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course (CTFL) v4.0

Aspects of the course are at odds with my 25+ years of testing (naming conventions etc). As an introduction to testing this would be good. I would use the analogy of a long time driver sitting a driving test lol.

AI in software Testing

ISTQB Foundation in Artificial Intelligence for Testers

I thought the content of the course was outdated. The slides used in the sessions were unhelpful and we weren't following the content in the order was presented to us at the start of the course. There was no explanation why that was the case. Homework wasn't corrected among the rest of the attendees which is always good for reinforcing learning. At no point did the instructor help us by reinforcing learning or recapping on what we had done that day. Poor content and poor delivery.

ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course (CTFL) v4.0

Really enjoyed the course, it's been very useful. Richard was a great trainer, very knowledgeable and helpful.
I think there was a bit too much material for the 3 days, we had to really move with the course to finish on time.

ISTQB Foundation Level Course - CTFL

ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course (CTFL) v4.0

Richard was very clear in his explanations, and always took the time to answer questions. The course packs a lot of information into a short space of time, so I feel could do with being one day longer, with more opportunity to go through sample questions with the trainer, as I found that most often it was the wording of the question rather than the content that was tripping people up.

ISTQB Foundation Level Course - CTFL

ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course (CTFL) v4.0

a lot of content to cover within the time and confusing language in the test samples

ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course (CTFL) v4.0

The course, led by Richard, was informative and well-structured, offering a thorough understanding of software testing principles. Richard's expertise made complex topics accessible. I'd appreciate more focus on ISTQB exam preparation, including some exam strategies. This addition would make the course more comprehensive for those aiming to get certified.

The course was really interesting and I feel like I've learned a lot. Rosie was very knowledgeable. I did struggle a bit with the regular exercises, as a lot of it was new to me and there were only 2 of us on the course, so nowhere to hide, but I realise it's probably the best way of reinforcing what we were learning. Really pleased with the level of supporting documentation that's been provided. Fingers crossed I can pass the exam!

The course is very interesting and even though I'm already have a background in testing, there's a lot of things I still didn't know or aware of.
It will be helpful I guess if we can have a board where everyone can put their answers

For the trainer, even though she was sick, she still tried her best to discuss and make the participants involved on the traning course. Since English is not my first language, I just have have a hard time to comprehend or get the topic easy since she spoke fast.

Overall, great training course for newbies or experienced in software testing!

John was great, material was good. He answered all Q's productively, made sure we understood and were happy before moving on.

Material itself, I know it's a newer course but more past papers/sample exams would be great appreciated as I believe it's one of the main methods to know how prepped you are for the actual exam. Having one, makes doubts about the ability to just remember the answers for a specific paper or if you genuinely understand it. That and the current document needs proof-read, a few typos etc. but nothing major individually about it.

Good trainer and good style of teaching however I am more of a doer so don't learn very well from just powerpoint slide shows. I have done other courses more hands-on/ interactive where I was actually putting things into practice rather than just listening.

Could have done with a quick intro into how to use Zoom as wern't aware what to do when put into the individual rooms. Thought that we'd be invited back however there was an exit button when hovering on screen that took a while to find/become aware of.

I thought that my trainer was very good at keeping the group engaged and talking through real life examples of the theory. However, I felt that the slides for the training were far too busy and often very unclear. In my opinion the slides need completely redoing.

ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course (CTFL) v4.0

Well explained and structured, supportive and good at explaining/answering any questions asked.

Only small suggestion is mapping the content to the K1, K2, K3 criteria as we go through it, or even at the summaries towards the end of each topic/module; although this is intuitive once you retrospectively look back at the criteria and content.

John provided a great introduction to testing for our development team. The examples he provided were very clear and excellent in demonstrating testing processes.

it was a fun 3 days.

Testing Techniques Training Course

iSQI Certified Selenium WebDriver Foundation Tester

I rated Rosie 4 stars because she was friendly, helpful and informative, also because I felt she was making the most of a difficult situation in regard to the training materials and the set-up of the learning environment she had to work with.

Overall I was disappointed with the course materials and the way in which we were required to learn. I requested to attend this course at the cost of my employer because I had a genuine interest in learning more about Selenium and because I wanted to take that knowledge back to the business. From the course description, I was given the impression that I would be attending a class that allowed me to put the training into practice i.e. we would be provided an environment/Virtual Machine/Website to execute the code we compiled to see if we got it right. Instead, the course consisted of 8 delegates virtually sitting around one computer and taking it in turns to give what we thought was the correct answer. We were given a very brief list of applications used in the course, but due to the time constraints and lack of information on configuration it wasn't possible to replicate an environment on my own computer in time.

The delegate slides were dated as 2018, and from the multiple errors found in the slides, it soon became apparent that the slides may not have been maintained since they were created, this was confusing and distracting to my learning process, and at times made me lose confidence in what was correct or incorrect.

Aside from only having one Mock exam paper to practice with, meaning I couldn't run through an entire mock exam at the end of the course before taking the actual exam, the one we were provided contained an error. Again this knocked my confidence in the information I obtained form the course.

Overall, in it's current state with errors and without an actual environment to get hands on training from, I would not recommend this training provider or course in future.

user acceptance testing course

Introduction to User Acceptance Testing Course

I was asked to undertake this course with a view to moving into a UAT Manager role within the next 6 months, having had no previous UAT experience (which was pretty daunting). The instructor delivered the course at a good pace, in an ideal order for learning and eased many concerns I had.
I tend to learn better within a classroom environment, interacting face-to-face, however this virtual course did not affect my learning, which was also helped by the other attendees being my future colleagues.
There were a few issues with MS Teams both with my personal equipment and generally but didn't really affect us.
Most of us struggled to understand what was required with the automated telephone service exercise, which could be addressed for future courses. And an editable Word doc for writing the test plan would be helpful too.
All in all a good course, thanks Paul.

user acceptance testing course

Introduction to User Acceptance Testing Course

Course was delivered virtually, therefore interaction between Trainer and Students was affected. Content of slides were absolutely fine, but the Material provided ahead of Course was not used. The one or two documents that were referred to and would have been used were in PDF format and therefore couldn't be amended. Some students resulted in making their own word/excel documents to carry out the exercises.

As for the exercises, I would have preferred using the same scenario (car purchase, limo business or Amazon purchases) as the same example for all exercises, with each exercise building up to the creation of a UATP. We could have then used all the material over the two days to end with a UATP on a product/service we'd been working with all week. Jumping between different scenarios didn't help in my opinion. The final exercise was also a little rushed. 30 minutes to generate as much of a Test Plan as we could, most of which was made-up on the spot. I didn't get anything out of the exercise at all. As mentioned, using the same scenario throughout the course and building up each exercise as an opportunity to build each section within the Test Plan would have been better. Course may have to extended over three days (maybe two and a half) to build the Test Plan up.

Lastly, I found some of the earlier exercises working individually good, then we moved into Teams which depending on the exercise was also good. Early exercises working individually meant we could create our own examples and bounce ideas off each other with the Trainer whereas some of the group exercises allowed some individuals to take a back seat. For the later exercises, having a group exercises meant we could confirm what was being asked of us and compile a document together, much like we would do in work.

The course was very intensive, but very informative. My trainer, John, was brilliant - provided us with lots of working examples and useful materials to prepare for the exam, as well as for future use and interest. At times, it felt like information overload, but I think that is to be expected with the amount of information that needs to be covered over a four day period - to try and combat this, John made sure we had lots of breaks at regular intervals to recharge. Overall, really good experience and would recommend, and feel lucky to have had such a kind and welcoming trainer to ease the course!!

ISTQB Security Tester

ISTQB Advanced Security Tester

Course was very detailed but John kept interest by being responsive and knowledgeable.

ISTQB Security Tester

ISTQB Advanced Security Tester

I think I could have done with a few more sections where we did questions privately, then reviewed as a group - this was done on the foundation course and I found it worked quite well for me.
I think it was mentioned a few times that the course hasn't yet been updated (like some of the others have) so it's not actually in line with bits of the foundation course I've done recently - though they're not huge differences this is a little odd for anyone who's done foundation recently.
There's a lot of content for 4 days and not much time for questions around the topics without affecting the time but John did answer questions I had and I'm very grateful for that.
I did struggle a bit with reading John's writing at times, but I made a lot of notes as he spoke on my hard copy and was able to just check bits I wasn't so sure on reading back to update my notes appropriately.
Intense 4 days but it's been full of information and a lot of learning!

ISTQB Security Tester

ISTQB Advanced Security Tester

Course was very dense but informative. It was delivered in a easy to comsue way by a knowledgable trainer

ISTQB Security Tester

ISTQB Advanced Security Tester

John has really good knowledge and gives good real life examples to back up this theory bits.
The course material is based on an American script and some of the word/phases were not UK friendly - I was a little surprised why the slides hadn't been edited prior to course delivery. There was also a section, which was include, but isn't needed - I would have expected this to be cut out/trimmed down.
John is really good at adding extra information to the slides whilst presenting (i.e. adding extra text on top of the slide), but unfortunately John was using a digital pen (or something) and his hand writing was really hard to read, which was a real shame, as it added extra value and had some really good points. I don't know if a different tool would allow John to add this text ad-hoc, but in a way, which is easier to read - especially when revisiting the slides later for revision.
I enjoyed the course and felt that John was a good trainer for this.

ISTQB Security Tester

ISTQB Advanced Security Tester

John provided lots of useful information. The course was intense but John regularly checked in on us and made sure we were happy as we went along. John treated all questions as important. No question was silly and he explained well. I've been on courses before where the content felt like it was purely about getting you to pass an exam - This wasn't that. I felt like I was learning about security with an exam to come later on and I feel like the course has empowered me in my role.

My only suggestion (which might not be possible depending on license agreements with Randy?) - There were elements in the presentation that were Americanised or assumed knowledge from other Advanced courses. John did a great job to make these more relevant but it would have been good in general to maybe have the presentation itself tweaked slightly.

ISTQB Security Tester

ISTQB Advanced Security Tester

The course was run at a good pace with lots of chance for discussion around the exercises. Some of the course was out of date/irrelevant due to being written by an American - it would be good if this could be updated. There were also a few slides that were skimmed over as they were not required for the exam, so perhaps take out. I would have liked some exam practice incorporated into the course/homework so that we could have had a discussion around the answers.

The course was interesting and I have found a lot of the content useful for my role. The trainer was insightful, knowledgeable and kind. He made sure we were all okay and understood the content. The questions and scenarios helped to iron out and learn from any mistakes early. The online aspect did make the course slightly impersonal in terms of the other students, as we kept our cameras off and were mostly muted, so I sympathised with the trainer on that.

Rosie was excellent throughout. She made things very clear, kept us relatively well engaged and used well placed checkpoints to facilitate our learning really well. Her approach was well structured yet casual.
Rosie was also pretty attentive to our opinions and feedback, and you could sense she was interested in learning about us and our professional roles so had a keen attitude throughout.
When challenged, Rosie was very helpful and informative, with her focus then shifting to ensuring the person who was confused/didn't agree with her viewpoint/syllabus getting some sort of closure - All in the interest of being as supportive as possible.
Maybe include some fun ice breakers to get energy levels up if possible in between long periods of talking through the material. I often did feel like I was lost in the midst of slides but this is a minor point.
It would be good to have an upgrade to the presentation of the slides. They do look a bit outdated! 🙂 More visually attractive, use of more eye catching pictures/models. Things to spruce up the reading material which, being fair was very good, so just another minor point. There's lots of resources out there which highlight the effectiveness and psychology behind this.
It's a shame that the exam will not reflect the academic approach Rosie had towards the syllabus! It's become very apparent that the exam will be out to catch us out and be quite unforgiving. Ignore the mini rant!

istqb advanced level test manager

ISTQB Advanced Test Manager Course

Delivery of the course content has been excellent. John is a very knowledgeable and experienced trainer well-versed with the subject matter and had excellent pace of delivery, so nothing ever felt like too much to absorb, or too little to be useful.

The course content itself is useful despite being written to a 10-year-old syllabus.

The only recommendation I would make for the content going forward is to revisit the supporting questions which are issued as extra-curricular tasks, or "Homework" - we were told a LOT of those questions were not really indicative of things we would be asked in an exam, so while they were useful for generating discussion and backing up the theory, it makes the theory difficult to apply to an exam-like scenario.

Overall the course has been very enjoyable and I have learned information that will definitely be useful in my career, which is after all the point of training! I am not a fan of breakout rooms or getting into small groups to work on exercises, so the fact we didn't do that and worked through things all together was REALLY good.

I would definitely recommend other senior testers and test managers take this course.

I found the course straight forward and very informative - The only improvement feedback I have is around the presentation slides.

The mind map is extremely useful, however 3 days of viewing slides showing only various snippets of it felt extremely repetitive and I found it hard concentrating as every slide looked extremely similar. This also made it difficult understanding what section we where learning and what level of a particular topic we were in.

I found the course really informative, and helped clarify a lot. Only advice I have is to maybe query if anyone needs any reasonable adjustments to take into account, such as needing more time on the practice questions etc, as I found it hard to keep up at times and process the information given due to my Dyslexia. All in all was great, thank you!

Very Relevant. Well structured with discussions around key points. I am taking away some useful actions for my scrum. Rosie is a good facilitator making us all feel inclusive & engaging with us. Relaxed atmosphere aided learning. My only point of recommendation would be to correct the Question/ answers in the mock exam as I found this confusing

Covered the course content at a nice pace, made sure that we were engaged and if we had any questions.
Covered not only what were the correct answers, but why.

Had some issues with mismatched materials between what we were given and what John had, but he managed to sort it out as soon as we brought it to his attention.

I felt like the slides were the only part of the course that I struggled with, a lot of the time there were large amounts of information on the slides and it all came on to the slide at once with no order to the information sometimes. The speaking also did not match the amount of information on the screen sometimes which meant that while taking notes, the slides would change quite quickly.

Other than those I think the course was good, I think the questions in preparation for the exam were good and the mock exams will prove useful.

I have completed an ISTQB course previously, and while I found the content interesting, I really struggled to stay engaged. Throughout the entire 2 days John was able to deliver the information in a way that has really 'stuck'. It was a great balance between information delivery, and real world application.
I will be doing an additional ISTQB course this year and will be checking if John delivers the course. If so, I will be signing up again.

The course was excellent, Rosie explained everything in great detail and patiently answered all our questions. I appreciate that it was interactive and the mock exam questions were and will be very useful in revising for the exam. The only thing that I struggled a bit was the abundance of information that would come up on one slide, I find that if the information is shown bit by bit, I can understand it better. Overall I think the course had a good structure and I enjoyed the facilitator's presentation style.

I was worried about a zoom course, however Rosie did a great job in making the course very engaging.

Rosie Sheldon was a very friendly and engaging trainer. Explained the course material at a good pace. Lots of opportunity for delegate participation. Only criticism was that some of the TSG sample questions were ambiguously written and the numbering was wrong, so things got a bit confusing.

Really informative course providing information in simple to follow slides. As the course was online it was sometimes hard to get fully engaged but John was always checking that we were OK with the subject we were covering before moving on and encouraged us to ask questions.

I found the course very informative & thought Rosie was very engaging with all of us. Lots of useful resources and documents given to us which I can re-use and review over in the future.

ISTQB Foundation Model Based Tester Extension

Course was interesting, but practical work didn't always seem to align with the content - on day 1 it felt like a lot of the content was skimmer over in favour of doing practical work around drawing diagrams, which aren't examined. Would help if the theory was taught first and then backed up by relevant practical work afterwards.

Course was well thought out. Splitting it up with practice questions and activities helped.

Interesting course, some good useful and practical exercises to compliment the course material.

Non-Functional Testing Training Course

Non-Functional Testing

A good introduction to NFT, gave us a good grounding on the principles and initial approaches to take which can be applied immediately into our current work.

Perhaps some more information on the current tools which are appropriate to use whilst carrying out tests, even links to them.

John was really good at explaining the concepts and the course ran smoothly with well placed breaks in between.

Non-Functional Testing

I thoroughly enjoyed this introduction to non-functional testing, John went through each topic thoroughly, ensured we all understood each segment. and gave us plenty of opportunity to ask questions.
The information that I have obtained from this course will be crucial to my testing going forward, and has encouraged me to try and adhere to some of the principles outlined in the course.

My only feedback of what could be changed in the powerpoint created for this course, is to update some of the examples given as many of them were from 2010. Having more up-to-date examples I feel would've given a more accurate scope of how important non-functional testing is for more present tech.

The course was good. For me, I would have liked more group exercises and more encouragement for all people to talk/join in. The pace was good, although it is a lot to take in as a new tester

Course has been great - a lot of information split in to easily digestible chunks. Ran very smoothly and there was a lot of support available on demand throughout.
My only criticism would be that it felt like there were huge pieces of information between each ask-back on that content, it could be better to add questions in to the actual content itself throughout to help keep engagement and solidify understanding.

ISTQB Foundation Level Course - CTFL

The course was intense, but it was well structured (giving enough breaks to restore ourselves). The material to cover was a lot but there was always time to ask questions and stop if something wasn't clear.

ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course (CTFL) v4.0

Best course I have taken part on, the material was delivered well and each part was talked through thoroughly and each point was dissected to help us understand the points being made.

There was a large amount of information being delivered but It was all relevant to our course and my role as a Software Tester so It was a really interesting experience to be a part of. Angelina was a wonderful course leader, very welcoming and helped to explain if I got a question wrong and I really do like for the answer booklets for the practice questions that when it said the right answer, it actually explains WHY the answer is correct and WHY the others are wrong which makes it a lot easier to revise

The only thing I would want more of is more example exam questions to work through but that is personal for me and the best way that I revise, maybe a kind of "cheat sheet" for the end to help go over as well would help.

Interesting yet intense course, covers basic disciplines and necessary knowledge required for this field. Overall really enjoyed the experience, with an experienced instructor being able to link in real life situations definitely helped my learning. Sample questions and test exercises helped consolidate the content delivered over the three days. Just need to put the work in now to revise for the exam.

Genreal frustration at some of the exam questions, which I am sure have been mentioned many times before.

I found the course engaging and interesting, i would have preferred fewer words per slide and more breaks to digest. I also found that the length given for the questions during class time was not always proportionate to the effort required for the question. Angelina was a good host and i enjoyed chatting about real life examples.

Overall the course was good despite challenging content. Rosie was helpful, kind and friendly. She gave us frequent breaks and plenty of time to complete the excersises.

I think a smaller class would enable more interactive activities that would have benefited my learning more than the lecture style learning that had open questions.

ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Course (CTFL) v4.0

Overall the course was good, unfortunately I will have to revise more afterwards due to the way I take in information. For some reason a person reading it out to me just doesn't stick in my brain. Other than that a great course.

Trainer was good, well explained and friendly.

Course was presented well, but covered more than the scope of the testing course I signed up for. I don't feel like the SDLC, Reviews, etc needed covering in this course and the section on actual test techniques was quite short.

I came to this course having already studied the syllabus and an additional book and knew where the gaps in my knowledge were. Rosie has helped to fill in those gaps and has explained things greatly and used examples to show this. She also spent time after day 2 giving me tips/advice which I greatly appreciated. Rosie is very patient with everyone's different abilities and really knows her stuff. I appreciate the help she has given and would highly recommend her.
