Certificate Program in Software Quality Assurance
Quality is a key measure of project success. Software producers want to be assured of the product quality before delivery. For this, they need to plan and perform a systematic set of activities called Software Quality Assurance (SQA).
SQA helps ensure that quality is incorporated into a software product. It aims at preventing errors and detecting them as early as possible. SQA provides confidence to software producers that their product meets the quality requirements. SQA activities include setting up processes and standards, detecting and removing errors, also preventing errors and ensuring that every project performs project SQA activities.
Quality is every ones responsibility, be it development staff or a budding quality professional. Every person is accountable for the part of services that s/he is expected to deliver to internal or external customer. Quality counts, for each deliverable and service. It is a distinguishing factor and used as one of the main parameters for comparison against competition.
This Certification program is specially designed to provide the needed skill set for an Entry Level Software Quality Analyst in the Software Industry. The program focuses on understanding Software Quality, Process Engineering, Process Implementation, Quality Assurance Activities, QC Tools, Quality Standards, Models and Frameworks.
