There are no formal prerequisites for attending this Certified Tester Test Automation Engineer (CT-TAE) Training course for the purpose of education and knowledge.

Delegates who wish to pursue the Test Automation Engineer qualification must be certified in either the ISTQB Certified Tester Foundation Level (CTFL) or the ISEB Foundation Certificate in Software Testing, as well as have sufficient practical experience to be certified, which should be no less than three (3) years of relevant academic, practical, or consulting experience.


This training is intended for anyone who already has experience in software testing and wants to further develop their expertise in automation testing.

ISTQB Advanced Test Automation Engineer Course Overview

Test automation is the practice of automatically running tests, managing test data, and utilising test outcomes to enhance the quality of software. ISTQB CT-TAE training focuses on the development, design, and maintenance of test automation solutions. This training course assists organisations in reducing human errors and producing consistent and accurate results. Obtaining knowledge in this training will help individuals in becoming leaders in one of the essential testing activities. Holding skills in Test Automation Engineering will help individuals to achieve rapid and significant professional growth.

The Knowledge Academy's 3-day Certified Tester Test Automation Engineer (CT-TAE) Training course provides delegates with a deep understanding of how to create automated test reporting and metrics collection. They will learn how to use criteria to determine whether tests are suitable for automation. They will also learn how to analyse deployment risks, identify technical concerns that could lead to the test automation project failing, and create mitigation techniques. Our highly expert trainer with years of teaching experience will conduct this training and help delegates to gain a comprehensive understanding of the concepts.

Course Objectives

  • To classify metrics for monitoring the test automation strategy and effectiveness
  • To understand the factors in transitioning from manual to automated testing
  • To create an approach and methodology for building a Test Automation Architecture (TAA)
  • To select and apply proper test methods to ensure an adequate level of confidence
  • To perform relevant testing activities based on the software development lifecycle
  • To evaluate tools and technology for automation best fit to each project and organisation

After attending this training course, the delegates will be able to understand the architecture of the SUT by using Test Automation Architecture (TAA). They will also be able to find and fix errors at an early stage through test automation reporting and analysis.
