Description

Agile Testing deviates from traditionally regimented testing, in that it has to be flexible and adaptive, and adapt to frequent feedback iterations. The iSQI Certified Agile Tester is recognised as a primary international qualification for software test professionals seeking to work in Agile environments. The certification is a rigorous process and combines soft skills assessment, and practical and theory exams. Successful candidates demonstrate that they have comprehensive knowledge and skills required in the agile testing process.

Our training course provides the complete five day BCS/iSQI programme and is delivered by qualified Agile quality specialists who have significant experience in all aspects of software testing and quality assurance. With a focus on practical exercises and a hands-on approach, the CAT certification will give you the skills and learning to succeed in any agile project.

This training is being conducted in partnership with the George Training and Development Institute.
