Description
  • Discover how testing is implemented in different agile environments
  • Learn about user stories and how to test them
  • Explore key agile testing practices—ATDD, BDD, TDD, and ET
  • Examine technical and team skills you need for success
  • Recognize the main agile testing challenges and how to address them

Agile software practices are being employed within many development organizations worldwide. More and more test teams and testers are participating in agile projects or are embedded within agile teams. Many testers struggle to understand the agile development process and their place in it. Learn the fundamentals of agile development, the role of the tester in the agile team, and the agile testing processes. From user story elicitation and grooming through development and testing, this course prepares you to be a valuable member of an agile development team.

Explore the business and technology-facing tests agile projects demand and how agile testers help the project succeed. Learn about the techniques of Test-Driven Development (TDD), Acceptance Test-Driven Development (ATDD), and Behavior-Driven Development (BDD). Learn technical and team skills testers need for success in the world of agile development.

Practice of Agile Testing Techniques
Explore agile testing processes in an informal and interactive workshop setting. Examples are studied through a series of small group exercises and discussions.

Who Should Attend?
This course is appropriate for both novice and experienced software testers. Developers expected to test within agile teams will find this course extremely useful. Test and development managers also will benefit from this course. A background of basic development and testing processes is helpful.

ISTQB® Certification
Are you looking for an internationally recognized certification in agile software testing? Delivered by top experts in the testing industry, Agile Tester Certification is an accredited training course to prepare you for the ISTQB Foundation Level Agile Tester exam. ISTQB® is the only internationally accepted certification for software testing, accredited through its network of national boards. The ISTQB, a non-proprietary organization, has granted more than 500,000 certifications in more than 100 countries around the world.

Note: The ISTQB Software Tester Certification—Foundation Level (CTFL) is a prerequisite for the ISTQB Foundation Level Agile Tester certification. For more information visit the ISTQB Tester Extension Page or view the syllabus. The ISTQB® Foundation Level Extension – Agile Tester (CTFL-AT) exam fee is an additional $200 and is not included in the course price.

ICAgile Certification
Successful attendees are awarded the ICAgile Certified Professional in Agile Testing (ICP-TST). Additionally, the certified attendees will be listed on the ICAgile website, indicating their designation. We recommend a Certified ScrumMasters session for those seeking ICAgile's Agile Testing certifications. The ICAgile certification fee is included with your registration for your convenience.

Students not looking for certification and only taking the Agile Testing course should already have a good knowledge of agile principles and how agile teams function.
