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 is creating value in close collaboration with the customer and respond to a changing market and 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. Who doesn’t want that?. Creating quality products is of course easily said, but how are you going to do that? It presents teams with major challenges. We do not 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 learn to act successfully within an agile team. In this three-day training you learn many important principles about quality and testing in an agile context to help you and your team 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).

Prerequisites

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.

This practical training will provide you a variety of approaches and techniques to think and talk about testing and quality and improve your hands-on (people, agile, testing and tooling) skills.​
