As we wind down 2010 and look forward to 2011, you may be left with some training dollars in your budget. I know I try to make the best use of my money right at the end of the year. Here are 3 ways you can do that:
1. Buy e-learning courses. I have placed several of my e-learning courses on sale until December 31, 2010. The great thing is that you have 12 months to complete the course!
2. If you live in the Utah area, or even in that region of the country, you may be interested in two workshops I will be conducting there in January. These are on the topics of test automation and test team leadership - and they are deeply discounted.
For details on either of these, visit https://www.mysoftwaretesting.com.
3. Study groups are forming for ISTQB Advanced certification. These are 6 to 7 weeks in length to support self-study. They are held online and have live web meetings with me as facilitator. You can pay in 2010 and attend in 2011. To get more details on this, visit http://riceconsulting.com/home/index.php/Home-Page/istqb-advanced-study-groups-forming.html.
I am working on a jam-packed newsletter for January, so stay tuned for that.
Finally, I wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a prosperous and healthy New Year. Thanks for your support this past year!
Warm holiday regards,
