The Rapid Software Testing class steadily evolves to meet the needs of people who develop, and test software products in the ever evolving contextual landscape of software development.
Rapid Software Testing Explored (formerly called RST 4.0)
This unique class introduces this context-driven methodology for testing any product that includes or involves software. We show you powerful new ways to think, to apply heuristic models, and to test responsibly and systematically, so that you focus on business risk and do the right kinds of deeptesting that your project needs.

Rapid Software Testing Applied (RSTA )
Rapid Software Testing Applied (RSTA), focuses on Rapid Software Testing in practice. Instead of explaining every part of the methodology to you, we focus on a particular product. We survey it, analyze it, perform tests and report bugs. Testers practice notetaking, product analysis, risk analysis, bug reporting and test reporting.

Rapid Software Testing Managed (RSTM)
Excellent testing is an open investigation by skilled technical people. Excellent test management requires you to center on the people who do testing—their skills, behavior, and relationship to the rest of the development process. This class will help you to be a better test manager.

Rapid Software Testing Coached (RSTC)
In the technical world, everyone learns on the job. That process goes a lot better with good coaching. Coaching is more than giving pep talks, it is an interactive exploration and leadership of work in progress. A good senior tester needs to involve the whole team in testing, explain and demonstrate testing, learn from the testing of others, evaluate progress, and report status. Coaching encompasses all these activities.

Rapid Software Testing Focused: Risk (RSTF-Risk)
Risk-based testing means organizing test strategy around suspected product risks. This means testers perform risk analysis before, during, and after tests are performed: before tests to guide the test process, during tests to adjust the strategy, and after the product is released to learn about risks that were missed in the original planning. Risk-based testing is a powerful way to focus testing and to justify the time and energy it takes to test deeply

Rapid Software Testing Focused: Strategy (RSTF-Strategy)
Countless thousands of people create test cases and perform testing on product in the software industry. Yet few of us, when challenged, can concisely and compellingly explain why we chose to do these tests instead of those tests. This leads to testing that is wasteful, unagile, and disrespected. Good test strategy solves that problem. Test strategy is the set of ideas that guide our choices about what testing to do. Knowing how to construct, explain, and critique a test strategy is the gateway to credibility as a tester.
