ISTQB Certified - Advanced Level - Test Analyst - CTAL - IATA
To provide an understanding of test analysis, design and implementation that goes beyond the ISTQB Foundation level.
It provides a portfolio of methods for designing tests for a variety software types within any type of software application.
Emphasis will be made on domain testing. Spreadsheets, templates and utilities will be provided to help students to devise tests that are both effective and efficient, giving best value for the testing being done in the time that is given.
The ISTQB Advanced Level qualification is divided into three streams: Test Manager, Test Analyst and Technical Test Analyst. Grove Consultants have taken out the concepts that relate to all three streams into a 2-day Core Module. This Advanced Core Module must be completed by anyone wanting to attain the ISTQB Advanced Test Analyst Certificate.

This section will explain and demonstrate how to use and apply the following test design techniques:
• Equivalence Partitioning
• Boundary Value Analysis
• Decision Tables
• State Transition Testing
• Classification Tree Method
• Pairwise Testing and
• Use Cases
Test Techniques - Defect and Experienced Based
This session describes the principles and reasons for defectbased techniques and differentiates their use from specificationbased and structure-based techniques. This section also explains using examples the importance of defect taxonomies and their uses.
The following defect and experienced-based techniques will be described and used to generate tests:
• Error Guessing
• Exploratory Testing
Candidates will analyse various systems in order to determine which specification-based and defect-based techniques best fit the application being tested.
Test of Software Characteristics
Testing the system’s functionality is an important aspect for every tester, focussing on what the system does. Another vital area for every tester is to test the software’s characteristics – how well it behaves.
Analysis of suitable techniques is provided to test the following quality characteristics for the test analyst:
• Functional Security
Other characteristics are explained and the reasons why they need technical testers to design and execute them:
• Technical Security
• Performance, load, stress and scalability testing
This course will provide the delegate with the necessary knowledge and skills to sit the ISTQB Advanced Test Analyst Certificate multiple choice exam. Delegates will be given the opportunity to sit the examination at the end of the course.
