Professional Agile Tester

Almost any company is Agile or is considering becoming Agile. Agile is essential for being flexible, in collaborating with the customer, respond to a changing market and constantly changing customer wishes. Scrum is often the first step to do this. Return to shorter iterations, less production costs, more manufactured products and better manufactured products. Who doesn't want that? Good working and tested 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 that we have to change and we also develop new things. Building software is research and development: in small steps, with the customer, discover what works best. In the Professional Agile Tester training you learn to act successfully within a skilled team. In this modular course you learn all important principles about quality and testing in an agile context.

Recommended prior knowledge

The Professional Scrum Master course is a good start, but not necessary. No experience at all with Scrum? Read the Scrum Guide carefully. Knowledge of and experience with testing software is very useful.

Setup of the training

Our experienced trainers teach you the essence of testing in an agile context. The training courses are hands-on and we use experiential learning. In our training you test real software, you learn under realistic pressure, in real situations. Experiential learning means that you participate in simulations instead of sitting still and watching a slideshow. A thorough debrief of what happened during the exercises is an essential part of the training. During the debriefs you learn from the teacher, the other participants but especially from yourself.

The training consists of 4 parts that are covered:

  • Soft skills
  • Agile skills
  • Test skills
  • Tool skills

We have 3 levels:

  • Foundation
  • Advanced
  • Expert

Because the training is completely modular, the group receives the most suitable training.
