Independent Australian software testing and training organisation, Planit, has become the local partner for online training resource, Learntesting, to help Australian and New Zealand businesses improve the quality of their software testing.
Learntesting is a new online hub that provides a global network of expert training resources. It provides access to online instructor-led courses, virtual classrooms, blended offerings, e-books and a range of other software testing related content, including free papers and presentations. Throughout the rest of 2009 and 2010 the portal will expand significantly and will include the addition of Planit’s course materials.
“For distributed workforces this type of training is a cheaper alternative, by about 50 per cent, to classroom learning,” says Carter. “We all know that continuing to invest in training your staff is essential, even in times of uncertainly, and this portal allows businesses to do just that, in a more cost-effective and less disruptive way.
“Contract software testers, who often foot the bill for their own training and have to absorb the time they could be charging out, will also benefit from the reduced costs and easy access the portal provides. The qualifications they receive will then give them an edge when competing for new business.”
Learntesting offers its content in a variety formats to suit all types of learning styles. From tutor-presented videos to voice-overs and sample exam papers, businesses and individuals alike can benefit from the portal.
