Rapid Software Testing (RST), is a context-driven methodology for testing any product that includes or involves software.
RST classes are taught through interactive discussion and hands-on activities. We challenge assumptions and expose common misconceptions about testing practices.
Then we show you a clear and powerful way to think about testing that allows you to test responsibly and systematically, so that you focus on business risk and do the deep testing that your project needs.
How can you book a class?

How can you prepare to learn RST in one of our classes?
You don’t have to do anything to prepare for our classes.
But if you want to do something that will give you a special edge in the classroom, you can review any of these materials…
