Learn to think like an Exploratory Tester! Open up lines of enquiry you never thought existed and generate useful ideas to become a more productive member of a team. Applied Exploratory Testing is a practical workshop that aims to draw out the very best of your thinking and questioning powers.
Exploring, thinking, critiquing, modelling and questioning in any context is not as easy as it might seem. Learn to explore systems using a wide range of techniques, tools and ideas to ensure the quality of your product throughout its development.

This course is for all team members, and can be completed individually or as part of a group. The program aims to make you a better thinker all round – so you don’t need to be a tester or a QA or any given named role because we believe everyone in a project team can contribute to the quality of the products they are building. Regardless of the software lifecycle model and your role you will take home a set of skills that you can use in multiple contexts.
