Learn how Quality and Risk are an Essential part of Software Testing- Dan Ashby
No matter what you’re building, how you’re building and who is involved. We all want to build quality software and products that are valuable to both users and our businesses. So how do we, as testers, help support teams consistently deliver high-quality work? What even is quality? What causes quality to ‘drop’? To help answer these questions, this course will:
- Explore what quality is, how it can mean different things to different people
- Learn how risks can negatively impact quality are fundamental to successful testing
- Identify the relationship between quality and risks and how we use testing to reduce the negative impact on our quality
So if you want to learn more about how testing can help teams build better quality applications. Come join us as we explore Quality and Risk.
This course is part of the Essentials Online learning pathway.

Test Evangelist / Mentor
Vernon has been testing software for 14 years starting with video games on PS2, Xbox and PC. In that time, many changes have occurred in the software development world but testers often still use the trusty old vocabulary of “tests cases”, “pass/fail” and “giving confidence”. Taking advantage of a diverse range of experiences gained on projects such as F1 racing teams, networked gambling machines and others, Vernon helps teams speak in a language the business can understand - no translation necessary!
By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:
- Describe briefly why learning about quality and risk is important
- Describe what quality is and why it is important to delivering software
- Assess the product quality characteristics that are most important for your team and in your context
- Describe what risk is and how it relates to quality
- Devise testing activities from risks
This course is designed for new starters in testing which means no prerequisite skills or knowledge is required.
