ISTQB Advanced Level Technical Test Analyst

About the Course

Following on from the ISTQB® Certified Tester Foundation Level training, this workshop covers the increasing technical challenges faced by system testing in particular. Defined tasks need to be structured according to the technical requirements and the internal structure of the system needs to be analysed in detail in order to achieve the expected level of quality and detect errors during development.

The ISTQB® Advanced Level Technical Test Analyst certification will teach you on the basis of the current ISTQB® Advanced Level syllabus. The various procedures, techniques and tools for non-functional system testing will be explained, and you will then be in a position to apply these in your future work as a Technical Test Analyst.
