All of our specialties have a large network of people who work hard to make them successful. Trainees and trainers form the group of people who use the written material day-to-day, but without testers and program support the testing and training days would be much harder to organize.

If you're interested in becoming a trainee, trainer or tester, you may find our 
Frequently Asked Question document helpful. Specific questions about being a trainee, trainer or tester can also be directed to your Regional Coordinator.
