Taking Agile Test Automation Training (ICP-ATA Certification), is highly recommended, either before or after this course, to complete the ICAgile certification pathway for Agile Testing.
While the course qualifies for an ICAgile certificate, the class is not written like an exam prep course. The material is designed for hands-on, Agile training in testing.
Students will be emailed a short document to review before class. Understanding the content of this pre-course reading is required before class, so more in-class time can be devoted to Testing Practices in an Agile environment.
