ASTQB Virtual Certified Mobile Tester

The Virtual Mobile Tester Foundation course, created by Rex Black, President of RBCS, Inc. (RBCS), past President of the International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB), past President of the American Software Testing Qualifications Board (ASTQB), Chair of the ISTQB Agile Tester Working Group, and a reviewer of the ASTQB Mobile Tester Syllabus, is ideal for testers and test teams preparing for certification. 

This hands-on course provides testers and test managers with an understanding of the fundamentals of testing on mobile projects.

The objectives of the course are as follows:

  • Identify and mitigate the challenges that face a mobile application tester.
  • Plan, design and implement appropriate test cases for mobile applications.
  • Work with other team members to identify and assess risks and to implement a testing solution to help mitigate those risks.
  • Identify the applicable quality characteristics for a mobile application and identify an appropriate testing approach to address those characteristics.
  • Participate in tool analysis and selection to select the most appropriate tools for conducting mobile application testing.
  • Identify areas for non-functional testing and prepare appropriate tests for those areas.
  • Understand the differences between the various mobile application types and select appropriate tools, techniques and approaches to test those applications.
  • Effectively employ simulators, emulators and the cloud for testing.
  • Participate in planning for the future, including proper tool selection and building for maintainability.
