Software Testing involves evaluating a program, application, or system against its technical and business requirements, in order to determine its effectiveness. Testing can involve implementing techniques with the intent to locate software defects. With increasingly complex IT systems being introduced, Software Testing is becoming progressively more and more valued within businesses.
Software Testing is the process of executing intentional inspections into the functionality of a system, program, or application, with the overarching purpose to enhance operational performance. Testing can involve applying techniques with the intent to locate software defects, but can also simply allow businesses to realise the risks of software implementation. Software Testing investigates if an application, program, or system functions correctly, and reliably, to all types of input, within a suitable time frame, whilst achieving the desired outcome.
With increasingly complex IT systems being introduced, Software Testing is becoming progressively more and more valued within business. Consequently, Software Testing has raised its status and nowadays is regarded as an important and valued profession globally.
For individuals that want to pursue a career as a Software Tester, The Knowledge Academy delivers a number of Software Testing training courses. We provide training at Foundation, Intermediate, and Advanced levels, to accommodate everybody, no matter what previous experience or level of understanding they may have.
(Also known as ISTQB Certified Tester)
Software Testing Foundation is an introductory training course for those interested in Software Testing. This three day training course is accredited by the BCS, and follows the syllabus provided by ISTQB.

Understand the purpose of Software Testing
Raise awareness of concerns and possible problems Software Testing may highlight
Use test techniques
Understand Software Testing terminology
Disclose beneficial sources of information
Draw attention to light test activities and processes
The Intermediate Software Testing training course builds on knowledge acquired at the Foundation level. However, this course adopts a more practical approach towards Software Testing concepts to provide delegates with a detailed understanding of types, principles, analysis, and management. This three day training course is taught by way of lectures, activities, and workshops. Delegates will also study a series of mock questions to gain an insight into the format of the examination. The Intermediate Certificate focuses more on the practical implementation of Software Testing principles within an organisation.
This Software Testing certification aims to:

Our Agile Tester Foundation Extension course covers elements of the Agile Testing approach, which is a relatively recent concept. Agile project testers function differently to testers on more traditional projects. Thus, this training course teaches delegates the principles and standards that comprise Agile projects, as well as the systems and techniques that Agile testers need to know. Delegates will understand how vital testers are to Agile project teams, as they possess the essential knowledge required to be effective testers for Agile.
This training course is practical in nature, as it is made up by many hands on activities so that delegates are able to implement their knowledge to real situations. By the end of this training course, delegates will be proficient testers who possess the ability to work within Agile teams.
The Knowledge Academy’s Web Software Testing training course assists web testers in managing shorter release cycles, advancing technology, intricate software structures, and user bases. Recently, website testers are needing to make the conversion from testing traditional servers, to testing web applications and sites. Hence, this Web Software Testing training course teaches delegates everything they need to successfully carry out the transition.
Consequently, delegates will acquire knowledge of web testing issues, web technologies, and the processes relating to website usability, navigation, compatibility, and functional testing. This training course consists of instructor-led teaching and references to case studies so delegates can implement their knowledge to real scenarios.
