ISTQB Virtual Advanced Technical Test Analyst Training


High-quality test designs and specifications are the key to precise test cases and an efficient and effective testing process. This hands-on course provides technical test analysts with the ability to define and carry out the tasks required to fulfill the test strategy in terms of technical requirements. This training course presents a comprehensive overview of methods and techniques for deriving and specifying software tests based on the system’s requirements and design (“black box tests”) as well as its implementation and structure (“white box tests”). On completing the course, attendees will be able to select and apply techniques for test case derivation such as state-based testing and control flow testing as well as static and dynamic analysis. We will look at non-functional testing techniques such as reliability testing, portability testing, performance, load and stress testing. We will also discuss how to succeed in building robust automation architectures and using a variety of tools to reach a quality target. By the end of this course, an attendee should be able to:
  • Recognize and classify the typical risks associated with the performance, security, reliability, portability and maintainability of software systems.
  • Provide technical elements to the planning, design and execution of tests for mitigating performance, security, reliability, portability and maintainability risks.
  • Select and apply appropriate white-box test techniques to ensure that tests provide an adequate level of confidence, based on design coverage.
  • Effectively participate in reviews with developers and software architects applying knowledge of typical mistakes made in code and architecture.
  • Improve the quality characteristics of code and  by making use of different analysis techniques.
  • Outline the costs and benefits to be expected from introducing particular types of test automation.
  • Select appropriate tools to automate technical testing tasks.
  • Understand the technical issues and concepts in applying test automation.

    Remote-proctored exams – In response to Covid-19 and the necessity to social distance, the ISTQB Certified Tester exams can be taken online at home via a remote-proctor. 

    The exam is not administered during the course. With the ASTQB Advanced Level, specialist or agile exams, a second exam attempt is included provided that the examinee received their Foundation Level certification via an ASTQB or AT*SQA exam and had the first attempt by December 31, 2022. The second attempt must be made within 4 months of the first. For all iSQI exam levels, an exam can be purchased with a single exam attempt only or a 2TRY exam can be purchased allowing for a second attempt regardless of the exam used for the Foundation Level certification. The second attempt must be made within 90 days of the first.

    Once the exam voucher has been issued, it is not refundable.

    All individuals sitting for the Advanced Level exams must have successfully completed the Foundation Level Certification and sufficient practical experience. 

    Accredited by ASTQB October 2021. This course follows the ISTQB Advanced Level Technical Test Analyst Syllabus v4.0
