About Us

About us

In 2013 SO Testing & Training was established by two IT consultants from the Netherlands. They gained extensive software testing, quality assurance and project management knowledge and skills when working on several commercial projects in the Netherlands and overseas. Using this knowledge and skills, they developed business aligned software test analyst training courses for the New Zealand IT industry. With these courses they train professional software test analysts who can fully participate in IT. The software training courses of SO provide students with certificates necessary to work as a professional software test analyst in the New Zealand IT market. Students who have followed these courses will find it easy to obtain a job as a qualified software tester in the IT industry.

Moreover SO can provide ‘on the job’ coaching for students to strengthen their skills and become a seasoned IT professional. This way the graduates will become employees who will be highly valuated by their employers and are able to grow in their career path to test tool specialist, test team lead or test manager. SO will also participate in IT projects to stay in touch with the actual demands and wishes of the New Zealand IT market. As the market will evolve, knowing what is going on is key business for us.
