wen it happens are you getting power to the starter? has the battery been load tested?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
the battery has been tested by 2 different places and said to be good (2 year old Interstate)
when we try to start the car (this is an intermitten problem) the dash lights go somewhat dim and we hear a clicking noise.
Now I've had many dead batteries in my past and know what they can sound like, this is different
