Frequently Asked Questions
Answer all of your questions
Can I change to any class I did not include in my registration form?
Our approach is very flexible. We allow the student to make a final decision after attending our trial lessons. We only send payment request after the trial sessions.
Do I need to know other tools before attending?
90% of our previous student had little or no experience of IT and this assumption and understanding helps us to start from the very basics and gradually progress to advanced topics.
What course(s) do you recommend for a novice in the testing arena? What would I need to take first?
We try to advise our students in their best interest. We would recommend any of our triple class offers. The popular ones are (ISTQB, Quality Center and SQL) and (ISTQB, Quality Center and LoadRunner).
What is the course schedule and duration?
Our classes run once every month. Please visit our home page or individual course page for the latest batch and timings.
Are there any pre-requisites for QTP training? Do I need to know VB Scripting?
There are no pre-requisites attached to QTP training. All we ask for is your commitment towards the session. You do not need to know VB Scripting or other programming tools before joining the QTP session. We teach VB Scripting from the very basics.
Do you have syllabuses for the courses?
The full syllabus will be provided to all confirmed participants that join the training after the free sessions.
Are there accredited exam for ISTQB/QTP/ QC/LR? Can I have sample papers?
All our courses are tailored to help you pass any of the certification exams at the first sitting. We recommend that our students take the Foundation Level Course in Software Testing immediately after their training. To aid this, we provide 500+ Past Questions for free on ISTQB, QTP, QC and LR to confirmed applicants at the end of each course. Since inception, the pass rate for previous participants has been very high.
How can I download and practice with the tools?
Step by step instructions for downloading and installing the trial versions of the tools (QC, QTP, LR and SQL Server) will be sent to all confirmed participants through mail and post. We will also advise you on how to extend the trial versions.
Can I have access to all videos?
This is possible. You will only have access to the videos if you add or include our video offer in your pack during signal up.
For how long will I have access to videos?
You will have access to videos for 1 week from the date of the lecture. You can repeat and view them as often as you wish within this period.
Do I have to use the same computer/laptop for the entire course?
No. If you change computers or location during a module, all you need to do is open the link to the live class from your inbox and connect. This link will be sent to confirmed participants.
What are your previous participants saying about the courses?
We pride ourselves in the level of quality training we provide at affordable prices. Please see our feedback page for previous participant testimonials. Join the free sessions and make your own decision.
Will the tools work on Windows Vista or Windows 7?
Unfortunately, most of the tools are not compatible with Windows Vista or Window 7. You will be able to install all the tools on Windows XP. However, Windows Vista or Windows 7 will allow you to install QuickTest Pro and SQL Server. You need to change certain settings to make this work. This will be communicated to you after sign-up.
Do I need to be online during the training session?
The answer to this is YES and NO.
If your sign-up pack includes our recorded session, then you will have access to our videos offline for 1 week. You can watch the lessons at your own pace and comfort. If your sign-up pack does not include videos, then, we will strongly advise you to attend all classes.
Do I need to be online at any specific time?
We encourage participants to be online at least 10 minutes before the training starts.
Do you provide interview questions?
Yes. For each course, we provide students with 500+ real interview questions & answers at no additional cost.
How do you answer my question during practice or live session?
During the live online classes, you can raise your hand or send a chat message and we will unmute you to allow you to ask your question. During and after your training, you will be given access to our Google group where you can post questions encountered during your practice session.
What do I need to view the lessons?
A computer with a modern browser (IE7, IE8, Firefox or Chrome), good speakers or earphones that can give you good quality output.
Does the ISTQB course give me a practical insight on how to write test cases, test plans etc.?
our ISTQB course will give you practical information on writing test cases and test plans, plus many other real live practical considerations of software testing. All of our courses are very practical and show how to do the tasks covered in the course.

We allow our students to repeat a batch at a small additional flat fee of 33% of the normal price. For example, you can repeat a Quality Center class for £100 instead of £300.
Is there an exam at the end of each course?
We conduct time-based exams at the end of each curriculum. These exams will simulate the real certification environment and help prepare students once they are ready to take the exams.
