This two-day program is designed for those Business Analysts, Liaisons, Project Leaders, Support and Testing Teams, who want to find errors. The course offers techniques to locate errors during the expensive Implementation, Programming and Testing Phases (Although the early phase errors of Analysis and Design are also addressed).

Testing is frequently a frustrating aspect of any project. The purpose of testing is not to create specifications, but rather to ensure that the system being developed meets the agreed upon business requirements. This  Structured Testing course assists participants to save time and money, and receive more effective, quality systems in both in-house and out-sourced development environments. Those involved with PMI and the Project Management Professional – PMP program are awarded 14 PDUs or “Contact hours”.
