A training capability, which supports the organisation’s test roles, is established and maintained.
It should be noted that the training plans do not cater for specific technical or project level training requirements but rather strategic training needs (for example, ISTQB Foundation Course in Software Testing). However, there should be evidence that project training needs are considered.
SP 1.1 Identify the strategic test training needs
To develop the capabilities and maturity of testing within an organisation, it is necessary to ensure that, along with other disciplines, training needs of test resources have been identified, planned for and that the organisation has publicised the training availability. This may be linked to the test job descriptions and should be part of the wider organisational training strategy.
SP 1.2 Align the organisational and project test training needs
SP 1.3 Establish an organisational test training plan
SP 1.4 Establish test training capability
This Specific Goal also looks to have demonstrated that the organisation has undertaken all the preparation to ensure the training is available as required and all elements have been developed or sourced to ensure the training capability is ready.
