Target Audience

UC-TFSE is for anyone in the IT industry who wants to understand the basics of Software Testing and Quality Assurance. This course has been created by engineers who have gained a passion for QA with the intent to pass on this practical knowledge to people that are starting their careers as software engineers as well as anyone who is already working as a developer or administrator. UC-TFSE will inspire the participants with practical exercises that are based on real-life experiences the authors have gained throughout their software engineering projects. This course is valuable to any software development team that is looking to improve the quality of their software. #neverstoplearning #continuousimprovment 

Important note: this course does not replace the ISTQB CTFL for anyone wishing to pursue any further certifications in the area of the ISTQB (for this the CTFL certificate will be required). If you get inspired to take the leap into software testing, we highly recommend you continue with the global standard courses of ISTQB. 


There are no requirements for joining this course. Anyone who is interested in a better understanding of QA and testing is welcome to join and learn.
