Firebrand’s accelerated 5 day course for ISTQB’s Foundation & Advanced Test Manager certification will teach you the fundamentals in software testing. You’ll be introduced to the different tests in the Software Development Lifecycle, test design techniques and the different types of software testing tools.

Once you are familiar with software testing basics, Firebrand’s course will move onto learning management skills in areas like:

  • Defect management
  • Test team dynamics
  • Fitting testing within an organisation
  • Motivation
  • Business value of testing

Firebrand’s unique accelerated, combined course teaches you the solid foundations of software testing, before giving you the skills to manage your own team in the software testing field. This course is ideal if you’re a manager looking to move into the software testing area. It’s also great if you have a basic knowledge of software testing and are looking to move into a middle management role.


Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online courses
  2. You'll be certified fast. With us, you’ll be trained in record time
  3. Our course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams**, accommodation* and meals*. No hidden extras.
  4. Pass 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
  5. You’ll learn more. 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

"Firebrand makes sure you have what you need to succeed and works hard to make sure all issues that may pop up are dealt with quickly and satisfactorily."
Joseph Naber. (20/5/2019 (Monday) to 24/5/2019 (Friday))

"Instructor is industry/subject professional expert, as well as an excellent instructor."
Ziaur Rahman, Royal British Legion. (31/10/2016 (Monday) to 4/11/2016 (Friday))

"The instructor was first class and he has prepared me well for the exams. Firebrand have made me feel welcome and comfortable within an intense study environment."
Thomas Mawdsley, Clever Adviser. (25/4/2016 (Monday) to 29/4/2016 (Friday))

"I have trained with Firebrand before, the "boot camp" ethos suits my situation and I have never failed to take value back to my everyday work. The ISTQB course is very in-depth and pre-reading is essential, I would suggest trying to ensure the books are delivered at least a couple of weeks before the course. The instruction, as always, was exceptional and littered with real-life scenarios, which helped to put the content into perspective. "
G.A. (10/9/2012 (Monday) to 14/9/2012 (Friday))

"Firebrand is an extreme way of learning and not for the faint hearted. If you put the effort in, you will learn a lot in a short space of time. The team are very friendly and work very hard and long hours to help you get as much of your course as possible."
Anon.. (20/2/2012 (Monday) to 24/2/2012 (Friday))
