Once a system is developed, exploratory testing is needed to model the user experience. Software testers ensure that a program behaves appropriately and to troubleshoot issues. Exploratory testers don’t necessarily follow a formal test plan; companies cannot guarantee how users will act. Exploratory testing’s unpredictability helps catch unforeseen bugs or coding mistakes. Typical exploratory testing courses will teach individuals practical applications and hands-on experience testing applications. They will receive objectives and learn how to report their findings.

Exploratory testing skills will aid in pursuing quality assurance jobs and software developer positions. A software quality tester with five years of experience can expect an annual salary of $64,000. Software developer opportunities are projected to increase by 21% over the next 10 years.

Featured bootcamps offering courses in exploratory testing are online platforms and range in length from 8 to 16 weeks. Students can go at their own pace. These programs offer one-on-one feedback and mentorship for students.
