About the course

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.
