NICF- Software Testing

Overview

The number of software applications being implemented is growing and concerns around their complexity and quality are also increasing. This applies to conventional software applications as well as newer types of applications. For example, with the continual rise in smartphones use, many applications embedded and a multitude of OS involved, the need for functional and integration testing is just one of the key trends that will ensure software testing continues to be a big business.

The emergence of Cloud will also drive the growth of this sector as the quality of its services comes into greater focus. This course offers the requisite knowledge to succeed in this growing industry. In addition, it provides the fundamental software testing skills which are increasing in demand as they can be used across all types of software including conventional, mobile and Cloud.

The basic technical and management techniques associated with software testing will be covered as well.

Upon successful completion of this course, you will earn 9 PDUs (PM: 9) that can be used to maintain your PMP® credential. Note that for the purpose of PDU reporting by those with PMP® credentials, the PMI REP Provider Number of ISS is “2339”. 

This course is part of the Agile Series offered by NUS-ISS.
