The Business Acceptance Testing course takes you through the scope and objectives of acceptance testing before teaching you the practical techniques. 

Learn how acceptance testing sits within quality assurance and quality control as a whole and gain a deeper understanding of the unique perspective of the acceptance tester. 
Then spend over half of the day getting to grips with test design techniques, creating your own test scripts.
Standard ISTQB terminology is used where appropriate, so you can rest assured that the course is consistent with testing terminology used by BCS (ISEB) qualified testers.

Business Acceptance Testing or User Acceptance Testing (UAT) focuses on the scope and objectives of business focused acceptance testing. This is a key stage of the change management process as it helps to safeguard the business from the risks associated with change delivery. The course covers the foundational elements of testing including the principles of testing, ISTQB terminology and the V-model.

To give you more of an idea of what you’ll learn and how the course will help you, here’s a quick guide.
