BBST® Foundations – A 4 week fully-online course

The first course to be introduced, BBST® Foundations, will have Cem Kaner as Main Instructor and Maaret PyhäjärviAlex Rotaru and Ru Cindrea as instructors.

Course Description

  • This first course is a basic introduction to black box testing. It presents basic terminology and considers:
    • the mission of testing
    • the oracle problem
    • the measurement problem
    • the impossibility of complete testing
  • This course is a prerequisite for all later Black Box Software Testing courses. The next one in the series considers Bug Advocacy. After that, we work on various test techniques.
  • Each course includes video lectures, quizzes, homework of various kinds, and a final exam. All of the homework, and the exam, are peer-reviewed. Every participant in the course reviews work submitted by other participants and provides feedback and suggests grades.

How is this different from AST BBST® courses?

Here are a few points:

  • The commercial aspect of this course enables us to have dedicated instructors working together and focusing on teaching and coaching the students
  • Students in Finland and Romania will have the possibility of getting support in their native language
  • This course, taught by BBST® author Cem Kaner himself, delivers the content on a level that other instructors can only aspire to
  • The course also has access to latest BBST® materials copyrighted to Kaner, Fiedler & Associates, LLC
  • Interactive grading sessions for the first 10 students contribute significantly to the learning process
