Agile Testing (ICP-TST)

SS Course: 3000597

Course Overview


This program will contrast traditional against Agile testing, highlighting what changes we must make to apply the best testing principles in the new role that we will play. Agile testing is not a separate service, but an integrated part of the development team. This course will introduce you to the Agile Testing Process, and explore Agile testing practices that you can immediately take from the classroom into the office with newfound confidence.

Upon successful completion of this course, attendees will be awarded with the ICAgile Certification in Agile Testing. The ICP-TST certification can only be earned by completing a live class. (Please note, this course does not provide attendees with ICAgile certification.)
