As a Manual Tester, you are responsible for the functionality testing activities of the application. In this course, you will learn how to create tests, how to execute the tests, and how to access the test runs in ALM. You will also learn how to raise defects in ALM, how to use Excel to upload the test assets, and how to use versioning for the test assets in ALM.

Course Description:

This learning series comprises of three lessons. In the first lesson, you will learn about using Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) 15.0. You will learn how to create Tests, how to execute the Tests, and how to analyze the Test runs. In the second lesson, you will learn about defects, how to use Excel to export the test assets, and how to use Version Control for the projects.

Lesson three consists of the ALM 15.0 Manual Tester Specialist Exam. You will take an exam to gain the ALM Manual Tester Specialist badge. In ALM, the Manual Tester needs to manage all testing activities such as the creation of Tests, execution of Tests, and how to view the Test Runs. After the analysis, the Manual Tester raises defects in ALM when the actual results deviate from the expected results. Manual Testers also learn how to manage versions for their testing assets in ALM and also how to use Excel to upload their testing assets.
