Overview

Under the restrictions of Covid-19 we will be running all scheduled classroom courses on our virtual platform until it is safe to return to the classroom. This is to ensure minimal disruption to our time table and to your professional development.

The ISTQB Advanced Test Automation Engineer Certificate Course is a three-day course explaining the tasks of a test automation engineer (TAE) in designing, developing, and maintaining test automation solutions.

The course includes exercises and practice exams to highlight key aspects of the syllabus and to help participants understand and practice the concepts and methods presented.

The course provides participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to guide a test automation project. The course focuses on the concepts, methods, tools, and processes for automating dynamic functional tests and the relationship of those tests to test management, configuration management, defect management, software development processes and quality assurance.

Methods described are generally applicable across variety of software lifecycle approaches (e.g., agile, sequential, incremental, iterative), types of software systems (e.g., embedded, distributed, mobile) and test types (functional and non-functional testing).

Certification

ISTQB Advanced Level Test Automation Engineer

Description

Advanced Level testers who have passed the “Advanced Test Automation Engineer” module exam, can be expected to:

  • Contribute to the development of a plan to integrate automated testing within the testing process.
  • Evaluate tools and technology for automation best fit to each project and organization.
  • Create an approach and methodology for building a test automation architecture (TAA).
  • Design and develop (new or modified) test automation solutions that meet the business needs.
  • Enable the transition of testing from a manual to an automated approach.
  • Create automated test reporting and metrics collection.
  • Manage and optimize testing assets to facilitate maintainability and address evolving (test) systems.

Certified Advanced Test Automation Engineers should be able to demonstrate their skills in the following areas:

  • Explain the objectives, advantages, disadvantages, and limitations of test automation.
  • Identify technical success factors of a test automation project.
  • Analyse a system under test to determine the appropriate automation solution.
  • Analyse test automation tools for a given project and report technical findings and recommendations.
  • Understand “design for testability” and “design for test automation” methods applicable to the SUT.
  • Explain the structure of the Generic Test Automation Architecture.
  • Analyse factors of implementation, use, and maintenance requirements for a given Test Automation Solution.
  • Explain the factors to be considered when identifying reusability of components.
  • Apply guidelines that support effective test tool pilot and deployment activities.
  • Analyse deployment risks and identify technical issues that could lead to failure of the test automation project, and plan mitigation strategies.
  • Understand which factors support and affect maintainability.
  • Classify metrics that can be used to monitor the test automation strategy and effectiveness.
  • Explain how a test execution report is constructed and published.
  • Apply criteria for determining the suitability of tests for automation.
  • Understand the factors in transitioning from manual to automation testing.
  • Explain the factors to consider in implementing automated regression testing, new feature testing, and confirmation testing.
  • Verify the correctness of an automated test environment including test tool setup.
  • Verify the correct behaviour for a given automated test script and/or test suite.
  • Analyse the technical aspects of a deployed test automation solution and provide recommendations for improvement.

Who is this course for?

This 3-day course is appropriate for professionals in roles such as testers, test analysts, test engineers, test consultants, test managers, software developers, and anyone wishing to gain the ISTQB Advanced Test Automation Engineer certificate. This course may also be appropriate for anyone who wants a deeper understanding of software test automation, such as project managers, quality managers, software development managers, business analysts, IT directors, and management consultants.

The certification is aimed at professionals who are working within a tool supported software testing environment. It is also for professionals who are planning to start working within a tool supported software testing environment in the future, or are working within companies that plan to do so.

People possessing an ISTQB Advanced Test Automation Engineer certificate may use the Certified Tester Advanced Level acronym: CTAL-TAE.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
