You can join the ACM for about $100. They have alot of courses online. Software testing is pretty specialized.

There are alot of books on it but not too many online courses. You can view the acm catalog before you join, ( to see if any of their 1100 courses interest you. they use thomson netg courses.

you may be better off reading texts on software esting.

The acm includes some o'reilly books and 400 subset, full text books accessed online. To get the full benefit you will probably need a full subscription to is slightly over 1/2 the price but limits you to 10 books at a time.

short of going to instructor led courses or taking courses at various online universities, if they have what you're looking for, most likely has courses on software training. they are cd-rom based. THey mail you the cd-rom like does with movies. You return it when you are done and you can get any other title when you notify them you have mailed it.

They tend to have high end courses on more esoteric topics of software development. I doubt they mail cd-roms overseas due to lag time and cd's getting lost. they also are the most expensive of these options tho a year subscription would be less than one instructor led course., also with online training, has some courses on RUP, (IBM's rational unified process) with parts about development and iterative testing but little on testing detail, except generalizations, such as how to test various use cases during dev cycle.

good luck.
