Students of Train2Game’s new Quality Assurance course, which launches today, will be poised to ensure the perfection of the video games of tomorrow! The course, created by games developer DR Studios, is the fourth from the blended learning provider, and is available from 7th February 2011.
The QA course will teach students the many complex steps involved in the QA process, and its symbiotic relationship with the game development challenge as a whole. Methodologies, tools, processes and structures all form integral components within the course. The QA course is conceived and taught by industry experienced QA veterans who continue to push the boundaries of computer game development in today’s market.
Unique to the games industry, the QA course represents a ground breaking-induction model that has been specifically developed to support games development and the QA process of any technology oriented business. This course will provide students with not only specific games-related skills but also techniques that are transferable to other industries and business sectors.
Modules within the course range from basic QA through localisation, working with hardware manufacturers, focus group tests, planning test sessions and managing QA teams. Successful completion of this course will equip students with the knowledge and skills that today’s games industry demands from its QA specialists.
Students study at home and can progress at their own pace during the course, so there is no need to give up current work commitments. They have‘hands-on’ practical time with industry tutors and a full support service is available seven days a week by phone or email. On completion, students will be awarded a Train2Game Quality Assurance Diploma.
Course Director, Tony Bickley of DR Studios, added,“There are many passionate gamers out there who would like to turn their enthusiasm into a living, and our new QA course is a great way of providing them with the skills and knowledge required to work in this exciting industry.”
