TMMi Professional testimonials

“I found the course incredibly useful. The course content is substantial and the tutor informative. I have used the information to re-think several areas within my own team, with a view to making a number of improvements to the way we write, maintain and adhere to our testing processes, standards and practises.”

“The course really gave body and perspective to what we were already doing within our testing team. It provided with a lot of tips and tricks and a good overview of the whole of TMMI, Assessments and how to deal with implementing the improvements. I was able to take ideas with me and implement them straight away. It was also nice to exchange thoughts with others and to hear how Test Maturity and Testing in general is tackled within their businesses and exchange ideas, tips and tricks, template.”

“Before the training, I was thinking that TMMi is too hard to complete because it has too much documentation online, I even didn’t know where to start! With this training, the trainer enlightened us with his great experiences and just made it so simple for us to understand and we are now acknowledged perfectly.”

“It was such a great experience from our side to listen to TMMi Professional first hand, the trainer giving examples from his own experiences. We had the pleasure to ask our real-life questions and being test consultants discussed the situations directly which made us understand TMMi, its benefits and how to apply and implement much better.”

“We undertook the TMMi professional course not only to gain a better understanding of TMMi, but also to help create a mindset amongst staff around reflecting, challenging and improving our standards.  Although the course covered a lot of information in a short time, it wasn’t overwhelming and contained a nice balance of theory with practical examples to aid learning. “

“The trainer was clearly an expert in this field and provided an environment where we could interact and ask questions.  The training has led to many of our staff achieving the TMMi Professional qualification and also take what has been learnt as a regular practice in their day-to-day jobs.”
