Event Details

iSQI's CAT (Certified Agile Tester®)

 

  

 

CAT is the world’s first practical Agile Testing certification, designed to enable those with testing experience to become effective members of an Agile project. Internationally recognized, CAT provides structure and discipline as well as a common language and methods, ensuring global best practice is followed in Agile projects. Continual activities throughout the course allow participants to put into practice the theory learnt. This certification is designed for Test Practitioners wanting to enhance their effectiveness in performing testing activities in Agile projects, as well as Managers, Scrum Masters, Developers or anyone moving to Agile.

 Course details

We are well aware that many agile practitioners shy away from standardized training and exams as they seem to be opposing the agile philosophy. However, agile projects are no free agents; they need structure and discipline as well as a common language and methods. Since the individuals in a team are the key element of agile projects, they heavily rely on a consensus on their daily work methods to be successful. The long and careful process of developing a certification framework that is agile and not static considered these factors. The exam to certify the tester also had to capture the essential skills for agile cooperation. Clearly no simple multiple-choice test would be able to show the examinee’s soft skills. Hence, a whole new approach was developed together with the experienced input of a number of renowned industry partners: To become a Certified Agile Tester® you have to succeed in three different ways:

 

  •      A soft skills assessment on the capacity for teamwork
  •    An exam, which requires free answering - no multiple-choice questions
  •    A practical section where the examinee’s testing skills are put to the test

 TARGET AUDIENCE: 

 This course requires a general understanding of test design, processes and terminology. It is designed for:

 

  •      Experienced Testers wanting to become valuable members of an Agile team.
  •    Test Managers, SCRUM Masters and Developers wanting a better understanding of    testing’s role in an Agile project.
  •   Testers wanting to accredit their Agile skills for recognition among employers, clients and peers.

 Prerequisites

 The iSQI Certified Agile Tester (CAT) Course is aimed at testers who are moving into agile projects as-well-as individuals, who are currently working in agile testing and want to improve their effectiveness.
