This User Acceptance Testing course offers training in the methods and procedures required by staff who are engaged in the key user acceptance phase of an IT project. With the increasing emphasis on the involvement of user staff in the sign-off of systems into production, it is now essential to make sure that they are equipped with the concepts, background, and formal techniques that facilitate this.

This course enables business users to ensure that the system developed meets specified business requirements and is 'fit for purpose'. No technical background is assumed. Interspersed with lecture sessions, delegates work in teams to practice the techniques covered. Working from sample business system documents, delegates identify acceptance criteria and test conditions, perform risk assessment, create test scripts and carry out reviews of the results.


At the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Understand the principles/strategies of testing
  • Define user acceptance criteria and their place in testing Identify test conditions and assess risk
  • Produce test data and test scripts Review test plans
  • Carry out testing in a structured, practical and cost effective manner
