Testing types deal with what aspect of the computer software would be tested, while testing techniques deal with how a specific part of the software would be tested.

That is, testing types mean whether we are testing the function or the structure of the software. In other words, we may test each function of the software to see if it is operational or we may test the internal components of the software to check if its internal workings are according to specification.

On the other hand, ‘Testing technique’ means what methods or ways would be applied or calculations would be done to test a particular feature of a software  (Sometimes we test the interfaces, sometimes we test the segments, sometimes loops etc.)
