Almost every company nowadays works Agile or is considering doing it. What does an Agile way of working or being Agile really mean? In essence, it means to create value in close collaboration with the customer and respond to a changing market and to constantly changing customer wishes. Scrum is often the first step to do this. Benefits include quick feedback, shorter time-to-market, lower costs and focused delivery of working and tested products. Isn't this what everyone would like?
Creating quality products is of course easily said, but how can we actually do it? It presents teams with major challenges. We cannot know everything in advance, requirements change and during development we learn new things. Building software is research and development: discovering what works best in small steps, together with the customer.
In the Agile United - Certified Practitioner in Agile Testing (AU-CPAT) training, you will learn to act successfully within an Agile team. This three-day training course will provide you with many important principles about quality and testing in an Agile context to help you and your team embark on a journey to better software and happier people.
This training is designed to help you develop skills around the 4 pillars of testing and quality in an Agile context: people skills, agile skills, testing skills and technology skills (PATT).
Agile United - Certified Practitioner in Agile Testing (AU - CPAT) has been designed for anyone looking to improve their knowledge, people skills, agile skills, testing skills and technology skills by taking a hands-on and interactive training course. Whether you are a developer, a scrum master, a product owner, a manager responsible for teams or products or a tester, this training will help you and your team develop better software by teaching you about testing and quality. Also, if you are looking for a career change as an aspiring tester, or someone looking to fill in gaps in your knowledge and skills, this course is for you.
Although there aren't any mandatory prerequisites, you will get a lot more from the course if you have already hold the ISTQB Certified Tester Foundation Level (CTFL) & ISTQB CTFL-Agile Tester Certificates - as this course will not cover the fundamentals and terminology of Testing and Agile. Other recommendations are another Agile or Scrum certificate like PSM or CSM or ASF or at least reading through the Scrum guide. Check out the syllabus for more ideas and literature recommendations.
