Determining what needs to be tested and creating appropriate tests is not an easy process. This course walks through a simple process from deciding what to test through identifying and creating suitable tests to writing the test steps. It looks at a number of different approaches for each stage and discusses their strengths and weaknesses.

This course is aimed at:

  • individuals involved in the day-to-day activities of identifying and writing tests
  • managers needing a deeper understanding of how their teams can be more effective

This course builds on the principles laid out in the ISTQB® Certified Tester Foundation Level qualification and aims to give practical experience in analysing, designing and implementing tests. Through discussion and hands-on exercises it looks at the process of identifying and creating functional test cases for each phase in the software testing life cycle.

With an emphasis on putting theory into practice, this course is highly practical, and attendees will produce real test documentation over the two-day period.


Any test analyst, test team leader or test manager who wishes to advance their knowledge of testing or prepare for the ISTQB® Advanced Level examinations.


On completion of this workshop, attendees will be able to:

  • Recall the basic concepts of software testing
  • Explain the Fundamental Test Process and their role within it
  • Explain the benefits of identifying risks and reviewing documents as early as possible
  • Describe how to create test conditions, test cases and test procedures
  • Identify which test techniques to use at each test level
  • Understand and explain test execution, execution issues and test summary reports


There are no pre-requisites for this course. However, it is strongly recommended that attendees have passed the ISTQB® Certified Tester Foundation Level certification exam.
