Quality Coach Training

Quality Coach Packages

Take your quality coach training to the next level by combining it with group mentoring or one on one mentoring sessions. This package is a combination of training and mentoring across six weeks. It’s designed to inform participants on what quality coaching is and also provide onsite mentoring to these concepts can be applied to the context the participant is working. Plus as part of the package you get a free introductory subscription to the testing dojo, allowing you to access additional content.

Why Quality Coaching?

Many teams believe and accept that quality is a team responsibility, yet struggle to implement this approach at a practical level. A quality coach provides the necessary assistance and support to enable teams to adopt this strategy. The role of quality coach differs to that of test lead and test manager, and requires different capabilities and know how. For one, a quality coach needs to be able to coach testers and non-testers alike, and rather than driving strategy they provide a space for the team to drive the testing strategy. This online masterclass provides training on the fundamental skills required to be a quality coach.
