This Course provides an understanding of basic fundamental Principles of testing including the fundamental test Process and testing terminology. It explains how testing activities support development activities across different software development models. The Course provides an overview of both static and dynamic testing techniques and how to apply these. It introduces you to test Management issues including test planning and estimation, Risk-based testing, and incident Management. It also covers tool support for testing, benefits and potential Risks of tools, and an effective Process to introduce these into an organization.

Holders of the Foundation Certificate will be able to go on to a higher-level software testing qualification.
