Attention Software Test and QA Engineers – !

“Software Test Strategies & Management” is taught by Larry Pollack – a 30 year SQA Engineering Professional!

Our next class: Saturday, October 14thsign up today!

Here’s what our Students think of Larry’s Class:

“I really enjoyed Larry’s course. He does a great job engaging the participants and tailoring the material to their needs. His methodology based on risk management gives people a solid foundation into why quality is important. I would recommend this course for not just QA engineers, but also for other stakeholders in the organization so they can see how quality fits into the overall process.”

Testing Strategies and Team Building

This course teaches the secrets of how to plan for exposing critical software defects quickly – how to communicate and reinforce those important fundamentals with your team – and how to build a repeatable and successful process for the future.

This course includes all of the components needed to build a complete software QA testing program. You will learn techniques to integrate testing and quality activities throughout the software development life cycle. Also, get practical examples and insights to improve communication and execution across your team.

Leads and Managers will come away with working templates ready to use on their projects.

Software Test Strategies & Management is industry agnostic; what you learn applies to every software QA project regardless of size, scope or technology.
