ISTQB CTFL and CTAL-Full Certified Software Testing Engineer

I am a ISTQB Complete Advanced Level certified tester and I am working in an IT industry from year 2009. I have been involved in various testing activities and have a vast experience in testing. 

I have trained hundreds of students on the ISTQB Certification. I have working experience in creating test plans, executing manual test cases and analyzing test failures. Also I do have an experience in test automation using Python scripting, CAPL scripting and NI TestStand. I have used Python scripting for tool development. I have used many of the configuration management, requirement management, defect tracking tools.

Hope you all enjoy my courses and I will be very happy to help you if you need any help.
