Agile testing is a current best practice approach to software testing that follows the principles of agile software development as outlined in the Agile Manifesto. A tester on an Agile project works differently than a non-Agile project. Testers must understand the values and principles that underpin Agile development process. The Agile Extension will give the tester the knowledge to be part of agile testing teams and achieve high performance.

A 3-day course covering the multi-disciplinary nature of the user experience design process, design thinking, and the steps you can take to succeed. Learn how to apply user-centered design and UX throughout the design process to make medical technology safe, effective, usable, and satisfying for clinicians and patients.



Ambiguous, missing, or incomplete requirements? Requirements lacking good characteristics? Poorly derived and unstable requirements? Learn the skills to efficiently use requirements analysis to prepare valuable, estimable, and testable software requirements and user stories.

Software application testing is inefficient and ineffective if the tester is not well prepared to test it. The success of testing in a project is centered on how the Test Cases are designed and written for the various complex scenarios present in the project. This workshop also includes interactive exercises covering topics from requirements review, test case development, test case review, regression testing, and dozens of software testing tips & tricks.

Learn the why, when, where, and what to test using a live software application!


The three-day course covers the international and regulatory standards as they apply to software verification & validation with practical templates and hand-on exercises. You will utilize a real medical device in projects that will teach you how to create a software V&V plan, test procedure, and software V&V summary report that documents software verification & validation activities and complies with regulatory requirements.

This course is appropriate for software testers and test managers looking to build expertise in efficient compliance to all standards and regulations, while achieving high effectiveness in software testing.
