Who is BBST®
The BBST® series is the most extensive and scientifically based software testing set of courses.
Cem Kaner first started teaching BBST® in 1994. The course then significantly evolved into a series during his teaching career at the Florida Institute of Technology. Over the years a lot of research has gone into picking the right topics, up-to-date assignments, and crafting a precise educational method. Countless tests and peer reviews have contributed to a version considered today the benchmark in software testing courses.
Since 2019, BBST® has been a trademark of Altom, continuing Cem Kaner’s mission to improve the state of practice in software testing.
The BBST® course series
The BBST® series was created as a sequence of online courses. With a specific educational approach, each course builds on skills introduced in the former. Foundations has the role of introducing the participants to this learning approach, making it possible to successfully complete the Bug Advocacy or/and the Test Design course. After learning multiple testing techniques in Test Design, participants can complete the fourth module: Domain Testing.
Every course is:
online and fully flexible so that any working professional can organize their study-time accordingly
organized in 4 weeks, 6 lessons with 2 assignments per week
