Details of the course


Basic understanding of software development

Why take this course?

The risk-based quality management approach will allow you to identify the sections of your software that are most important to test, i.e. identify the areas with the highest level of business or technical risk.

Expected benefits?

At the end of this course, you will know how to determine :

  • The testing techniques to be used according to your specific risks.
  • The specific levels and types that apply to your situation (e.g. security tests, accessibility tests).
  • The right amount of testing to be done.
  • The relevance of using risk reduction activities in addition to testing.
  • Prioritise your tests to find critical defects as early as possible.
