Designed for testers with experience with functional testing, this course highlights the issues and best approaches for testing mobile applications.

Attendees will learn how to approach mobile testing projects, which quality characteristics to address and how to plan, organise and execute the testing.

Because mobile projects tend to be fast-paced and the devices and user profiles are so widely varied, traditional testing approaches may not meet the needs of the project. This course will show the tester how to prioritise the testing, how to work with the project team to quantify the risks, how to determine the best tools to use for the testing, and how to accomplish the testing efficiently within tight time constraints. 

TARGET AUDIENCE: Participants should have a general understanding of test design, processes and terminology. An ISTQB Foundation certificate is recommended, but not required. It is designed for:

  • Testers (of any level) who are working on mobile projects
  • Testers who will be working on mobile projects and need to gain a general understanding
  • Testers seeking certification as a certified mobile tester
