  • Test Missions, Policies, Strategies and Goals

Firebrand's course will prepare you for the ISTQB Expert Level exam. You'll sit this exam on-site during the course, covered by your Certification Guarantee. This accelerated 6-day practical course is suitable for experienced test managers wishing to develop expert knowledge and skills in strategic, operational and resource management of a testing team.

Seven reasons why you should sit your ISTQB Expert Level course with Firebrand Training

  1. You'll be ISTQB Expert Level certified in just 6 days. With us, you’ll be ISTQB Expert Level trained in record time
  2. Our ISTQB Expert Level course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. Pass ISTQB Expert Level first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  4. You’ll learn more ISTQB Expert Level. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  5. You’ll learn ISTQB Expert Level faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  6. You’ll be studying ISTQB Expert Level with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 76,845 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
  7. You'll do more than study ISTQB Expert Level courseware. We use practical exercises to make sure you can apply your new knowledge to the work environment. Our instructors use demonstrations and real-world experience to keep the day interesting and engaging

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a certification guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation and exams on your return). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.
