ISTQB® Advanced Level Test Automation Engineer

Design, develop, maintain test automation - efficient test automation architectures – from manual to automated testing - hands-on

Your benefit

Improve your ability to design, develop and maintain test automation solutions. Learn concepts, methods, tools and processes to implement and deploy a test automation architecture. Ensure continuous control and maintenance of your test automation framework. 

Goal

A Test Automation Engineer contributes many vital aspects to the automation of the software test in an organization:

  • Create a test automation architecture (TAA) to lead your test automation to success.
  • Design, develop and maintain test automation solutions that meet your business needs.
  • Support the transition of testing from a manual to an automated approach.
  • Find the right tools for your test environment.
  • Monitor your automation success with reports and metrics.
  • Improve your automation to ensure sustainability of the automation effort.

Test automation is a complex and taxing task that requires a good background in testing and in software development.
The course enables you to implement an efficient and lasting test automation by providing a structured framework that addresses all the problems that arise in automation efforts. Learn how to integrate test automation into your business and project goals by defining a generic test automation architecture (gTAA) that will support and streamline the automation efforts of your company.

The course will show how to realize a project-specific test automation architecture (TAA) from the gTAA.
You will learn about success factors and obstacles for turning your manual tests into automated tests, and about how to set up your test automation solution (TAS) and your test automation framework (TAF) for the concrete testing activities in your test project. The course will discuss the maintenance and evolution of your testing effort, using metrics, reports and improvement activities.
