More and more organizations realize that the quality of IT products is a critical factor in a successful business. A good software development process is essential to the control of risks and delivery of high quality software. Structured testing provides insight into the quality of the information system and the risks present at any given point in the development lifecycle. The Test Management Approach (TMap) is the perfect example of a structured test approach. This is an exam for testers who want to adopt a structured approach to their work. The benefit of qualified testers to organizations and individuals is that the structured approach leads to a more efficient testing process. More on the exam and taking part in it can be found on the site of the exam provider EXIN.
The TMap Suite® Test Engineer module is primarily intended for people involved in testing on a day-to-day basis. General knowledge in the field of system development and six months to one year of work experience in the testing field is recommended.
Holders of the TMap Suite® Test Engineer certificate know how tests must be prepared, specified and carried out, which techniques, infrastructure and tools can be used for this purpose, and how this fits in with the life cycle of a testing process. TMap® was developed by Sogeti and is widely applied as a framework for structured testing.
Are you looking for a training program to prepare yourself for the exam? Sogeti has several courses available.
The TMap Suite is a combination of a multitude of resources, like the TMap HD book, the TMap NEXT book and the Building Blocks on this website. Sogeti has put together a workbook based on these resources, that forms the core literature for the Foundation examination. The Workbook is available in PDF only through this site. The workbook is available in both English and Dutch.
