courses BY professionals

The ISTQB® Certified Tester Foundation Level course is suitable for anyone who needs to demonstrate practical knowledge of the fundamental concepts of software testing. This includes people in roles such as testers, test analysts, test engineers, test consultants, test managers, automation engineers, user acceptance testers and software developers. The qualification is relevant across all software delivery practices including Waterfall, Agile, DevOps and Continuous Delivery.It is also appropriate for individuals who need a basic understanding of software testing including project managers, quality managers, software development managers, business analysts, IT directors and management consultants.Attending accredited training is highly recommended since the ISTQB® Member Board will have assessed the materials for relevance and consistency against the syllabus. As an accredited provider we offer on-site training for the Certified Tester Foundation Level. We can also provide for you to take the examination test in association with the conclusion of the course.

Accessibility testing

The Accessibility Directive (Tillgänglighetsdirektivet) will become Swedish law in 2022 and will apply in 2025.

This means that organizations that work with software in some way need to understand what accessibility is about, as well as prepare to deliver accessible content and services.

Inceptive offers an accessibility testing course so that you can learn more about accessibility and also learn how to test for accessibility, which tools you can use, and how to ensure that you can meet the requirements of the Accessibility Directive.

Communication for testers

Communication is key, as we usually say. In the realm of Software Development and Testing it is no different. What is good testing without good and effective communication of the results? 
In this course we will give you a toolbox of communication tools and coach you how to use them so your organization can have the best possibility of success in your endeavors.
How do we talk about progress? How do we talk about System Health? What is Safety Language? This and much more is covered in this course.
Communication through different channels have their own challenges, so whether it’s about dialogue between employees or documentation in some form, we strive to help you improve your communication skills.

Testing for Developers

Most developers are expected to test their own or other co-workers' deliverables before going into production. In this course we help developers learn about the world of testing. You will learn more about how you can switch to a testers mindset, how you make better estimations of your work, what is good to automate and what you must explore on your own.
We will hone your skills in testing and give you a set of tools to be a better developer.
