ISTQB Certified Tester Advanced Level Functional Tester

Functional testing is a quality assurance (QA) process [1] [2] and a type of black box testing that bases its test cases on the specifications of the software component under test. Functions are tested by feeding them input and examining the output, and internal program structure is rarely considered (not like in white-box testing).[3] Functional Testing usually describes what the system does.

The Certification deals with reviews. Reviews are an uncomplicated, proven and rapid technique for the effective testing and checking of design documents, source codes and other substantial project documents. No other quality assurance technique allows faults to be recognized and corrected so simply yet successfully. The seminar presents review techniques for testing specifications, source code, manuals and other documents, and shows how a review culture can be established within the project as a permanent accompaniment to the process. The techniques presented are oriented towards the IEEE Standard for Software Reviews.

This advanced level certification is meant for software testers especially part of independent test teams involved in business-oriented testing. It provides the users the much needed & detailed information related to specifics of different testing techniques like behavioral testing or Black Box testing / White Box testing etc.
