Training

Through our specialist and bespoke software testing training courses, HORATIO Resourcing creates highly skilled testing professionals to meet the increasing quality assurance needs of organisations globally. With our comprehensive hands-on instructor-led training programs, delegates are taught to adopt a structured approach to testing. Our courses are intensive, instructor-led and hands on, and are made up of a series of lectures, illustrative examples and interactive sessions covering key testing modules.

We can come to you

When you engage us to deliver training in your organisation we believe it is because you have a need to increase testing literacy. Every organisation and their training needs are different in terms of technology, methodology, implementation and people.
At HORATIO Resourcing we never adopt a one size fits all training approach as we believe this will end up being an academic exercise for the attendees. Instead our aim is a series of thought provoking sessions, culminating in a strong desire to hurry back and immediately begin implementing those changes that will lead to better testing and thus ultimately better technology. We will always tailor training to meet your specific needs.

You can come to us

Our in-house courses are held both during the week and also at weekends. This has been suggested to us by an overwhelming majority of our sampled delegates, some of who either struggled to fit training into an already busy week or were distracted by existing projects and colleagues from work.
We offer public dates for our classroom based courses at a wide variety of locations in the United Kingdom.

Certification

The International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB) originally founded in Edinburgh in November 2002 is responsible for the international ISTQB Certified Tester qualification scheme. Representatives from over 30 national testing boards continue to work with the ISTQB to set up global standards certification. The qualifications are based on a syllabus, and there are qualifications and guideline requirements for accreditation.
The British Computer Society’s (BCS) Information Systems Examination Board (ISEB) is seen as the forerunner of British industry standard Software Testing Qualifications and works very closely with the ISQTB to produce what is now known as the ISEB/ISTQB Foundation Certificate in Software Testing qualification. Upon successful completion of Systems Quality Assurance and Testing course, delegates are expected to sit and pass the ISEB/ISTQB Foundation Certificate in Software Testing examination.
At the end of the training you are awarded a single, universally accepted, international qualification designed specifically for system quality assurance and testing professionals. As an ISEB/ISTQB Certified Tester you are among a select group of internationally recognised testing professionals, practising within the framework of a common body of understanding and knowledge.
HORATIO Training graduates have a 96% examination pass rate.
