ISTQB Certified Tester Advanced Level Technical Test Analyst
|No upcoming event date found|
This ISTQB Advanced level technical Test Analyst training course presents a comprehensive overview of methods and techniques for deriving and specifying software tests based on the system’s requirements and design (“black box tests”) as well as its implementation and structure (“white box tests”).
- It is the Online Testing Course with the Unlimited access for 3 Months, you can access the training anywhere according to your convenient Time and Place.
- For E-Learning Demos view a sample of some of our E-Learning courses without obligation and for FREE. The links are as follows: (i) ISTQB Test Engineering Foundation Level (ii) ISTQB Advanced Technical Test Analyst (iii)Managing the Testing Process (iv)Requirements Engineering Foundation

What is the ISTQB - International Software Testing Qualifications Board?
ISTQB is a non-profit organization responsible for defining various guidelines such as examination structure and regulations, accreditation, certification etc. Working parties within the ISTQB are responsible for developing and maintaining the syllabi and exams. The ISTQB comprises representatives from each existing national board.
What is the ISTQB Certified Tester program?
The ISTQB Certified Tester program provides certification for software testers internationally. There are currently two levels of certification: The Foundation Level and the Advanced Level certificate. For both, international working parties develop and maintain internationally uniform curricula and exams.
Is this certification acknowledged across the world ?
This is a truly internationally recognized certification program. For the list of participating nations please visit http://www.istqb.org/members.htm .
What is the duration of the course?
As this is the online course, we will provide you 3 months unlimited access to the course.
If I do not pass, is it possible to take the exam again?
Yes, you can re-take the exam; however, you will be charged another exam fee.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I HAVE TO CANCEL?
Confirm your CANCELLATION in writing up to 15 working days before the event and receive a refund less a 10% service charge. Regrettably, no refunds can be made for cancellations received less than 15 working days prior to the event.
However, SUBSTITUTIONS are welcome at any time and is done at no extra cost. The organisers reserve the right to amend the programme if necessary.

- Interpret the control and data flow results delivered from a tool in order assess if code has any control or data flow anomaly
- Explain the use of call graphs for the evaluation of the quality of architecture. This shall include the defects to be identified, the use for test design and test planning, limitations of results
- Explain how dynamic analysis for code can be executed and summarize the defects that can be identified using that technique, and its limitations
