About the Course
The ISTQB® Certified Tester Automotive Software Tester (CT-AuT) certification focuses on the specific requirements for “testing E/E systems” in the automotive environment on the basis of established standards (Automotive SPICE®, ISO 26262, AUTOSAR®, etc.). It also covers testing in virtual environments (including XiL), and automotive-specific static and dynamic test techniques.
Who should attend?
All persons involved in software testing in the automotive area such as persons in roles like like testers, test analysts, test engineers, test consultants, test managers, release testers and software developers. Also recommended for Project manager, quality manager, software development manager, system analyst (business analysts), IT manager or management consultants, who wish to acquire basic knowledge and basic understanding of the topic software testing in the automotive area
