Testers never have enough time. How long should we spend testing? How long will enough testing take?
This course looks at current estimation techniques to aid accurate test estimation. The course covers several methods of estimation, with the positives and negatives for each method based on the experience SQS has gained over the years working in many industries.


This course is suitable for anyone who wants to gain an understanding of how to make test estimation work in their context.


  • By the end of the course attendees, through instructor-led presentations, exercises and discussions, will be able to:
  • Describe the basis for estimation and the reasons why many estimates performed will be wrong.
  • Explain the benefits and shortcomings of conventional methodologies for test estimation.
  • Present an established estimate to management on a cost relative, risk-management basis.
  • Adjust the estimated schedule and budget to fit project constraints without undermining accuracy or unduly increasing the risk.


Knowledge of general test processes is required.
