QA-Training-Roadmap

How are we Different from other Training Institutes?

Role-Specific Training – Traditional training focuses on an overall business process, without regard for the individual’s role. By contrast, Zaran Tech’s series of role-based courses delivers in-depth training on a specific role within the business process.

Hands-on Mentoring – Our expert trainer’s work side-by-side with each trainee and teach proven discipline and techniques for successful delivery. Mentoring is “hands-on” as part of actual projects to gain real-time experience.

Real-time Project Experience – Comprehension of practical skills is both reinforced and demonstrated in our training programs by completing Case studies of actual projects.

Certification Exams –Our trainers are all certified and provide expert industry level guidance to certification exams with tips and tricks to guarantee consistency of skills and practices for a successful completion of certification.

Ongoing Education – Zaran Tech continues to offer new courses so you can keep up-to-date on latest technologies and best practices.

After reviewing your goals, and assessing your current IT skills capability, ZaranTech will tailor an after-the-training program and placement plan that will meet your needs in successful placement. This includes Resume preparation assistance, Mock interviews (technical and project based), Soft Skills and On-the-job support.

CASE STUDY # 1 – “Healthcare System”

Healthcare System Application:

As the Product Manager for Inner Expressions you are asked to provide one of your largest clients with additional features in the EMR ( Electronic Medical Records Management) System. The client has requested an integrated Referral Management System that tracks patients from Primary care into the Specialist departments. Appointments are created by either the Primary Care Physicians themselves or other clinical staff like Nurse Practitioners or Clinical Assistants. Each appointment must go through the appropriate checks including checking if the patient has an active insurance with the client, whether the insurance program covers the condition of the patient, patient’s preference for location and timings and availability of the Specialist doctor.

Some appointments may have to be reviewed by the Specialists themselves before they can be approved, the administrator of the facility (hospital) must have the ability to choose by appointment type to either make it directly bookable by the Primary Care Staff or as a type that requires review by the specialist. The system should also allow the Primary Care Staff and specialists departments to exchange notes and comments about a particular appointment. If the specialist department requests tests or reports as mandatory for the appointment, the system must ensure that the patient has these available on the date of the appointment.

The Hospital sets about 300 appointments per day and must support about 50 users at the same time. The existing EMR system is based on Java and an Oracle database system.

TASKS

  • Some Basic and Advanced level tasks will be provided by your trainer which will include what you studied and practiced using the Assignments for QA (Manual and Automation) based on this Case Study which will help you understand the real-time project scenarios.

CASE STUDY # 2 – “Asset Management System”

Asset Management Application:

The asset management system keeps track of a number of assets that can be borrowed, their ownership, their availability, their current location, the current borrower and the asset history. Assets include books, software, computers, and peripherals. Assets are entered in the database when acquired, deleted from the database when disposed. The availability is updated whenever it is borrowed or returned. When a borrower fails to return an asset on time, the asset management system sends a reminder to the borrower and informs the asset owner.

The administrator enters new assets in the database, deletes obsolete ones, and updates any information related to assets. The borrower search for assets in the database to determine their availability and borrows and returns assets. The asset owner loans assets to borrowers. Each system has exactly one administrator, one or more asset owners, and one or more borrowers. When referring to any of the above actor, we use the term "user". All users are known to the system by their name and their email address. The system may keep track of other attributes such as the owner's telephone number, title, address, and position in the organization.

The system should support at least 200 borrowers and 2000 assets. The system should be extensible to other types of assets. The system should checkpoint the state of the database every day such that it can be recovered in case of data loss. Owners and the administrator are authenticated using a user/password combination. Actors interact with the system via a web browser capable of rendering HTML and HTTP without support for JavaScript and Java.

TASKS

  • Some Basic and Advanced level tasks will be provided by your trainer which will include what you studied and practiced using the Assignments for QA (Manual and Automation) based on this Case Study which will help you understand the real-time project scenarios.
