User Acceptance Testing

Why take this course?

After completing this course, you will be able to
  • recognize the purpose of user acceptance testing and where it fits within development.
  • take a systematic, repeatable approach to testing.
  • plan, design, prepare, execute and validate user acceptance testing.
  • perform acceptance testing using test modelling, test case design and usability testing techniques.

This course is designed for business users, testers and developers who want to learn how to test applications from the business process perspective. We'll explain how to test requirements and come up with a test strategy. You will use a case study to practise techniques that help you identify what needs to be tested, how to test it, and how to know when you are done.

Who should attend?

Business Users, Business Analysts and Quality Assurance Analysts who are responsible for the User Acceptance and business procedural testing process. If you are a business operations manager or team leader, you'd also benefit from this course, as it would help you understand the complexity of User Acceptance testing.

Any prerequisites?

If you are not already familiar with system development life cycles and testing processes and principles, you should first complete Profience's one-day workshop, Software Testing Essentials.
