You can’t find the time to devote the typical three full days needed in an on-site instructor-led course. That’s why this executive-style course (an abridged version that provides a comparatively shorter alternative to the full classroom version) may just do the trick.
You haven’t had any luck finding any classroom training at a time and place you can attend. This online course opens up a new opportunity for you to strike while the iron is hot and embrace the learning you need to get qualified.
The costs for the instructor-led ISTQB® Foundation courses that you’ve checked out so far have been prohibitive. Money has been a sticking point, for whatever reason, right now. Let’s get rid of that hurdle for you. This online course, which takes place over three consecutive days, for a maximum of only three hours a day, is yours to sign up for, at a fraction of the cost of a fully fledged course.

The Hong Kong Jockey Club is committed to enhancing customer wagering experience through information technology. Software testing quality and time-to-market are crucial and my project team responsible for testing management constantly looks for ways in improving that. Our general team members took a 2-day introductory course on “Practical Acceptance Test” conducted by Richard Ede and that was packed with useful knowledge about the industry best practices on testing. Dedicated team members further attended the 3-day “Foundation Level ISTQB Software Testing Certification Training” and we found it very fruitful.
One characteristic of the training delivered by Richard is a good combination of both theoretical knowledge and practical know-how that rooted from his active and hands-on testing consultancy background. What we also treasure is his passion in clarifying our course queries and his dedication in answering our practical questions. Indeed we relish (should I say that under the scope of testing? :P) those games of questions that were fun, and helped the class for revision of the course materials, which enhanced our understanding in preparing for the certification test.
