ISTQB Agile Tester Foundation Course (Day 1)

The Agile Tester

This two day course provides testers and test managers with an understanding of the fundamentals of testing on agile projects. Attendees will learn how agile software development projects are organized, and the various types of agile development practices in common use. They will understand how agile development differs from traditional approaches, how to position testers in an agile organization, the fundamental agile testing principles, practices, and processes, and the skills they’ll need to excel in an agile environment. The attendees will learn ways to estimate and organize testing within agile projects and the application of risk-based testing on agile projects. They’ll also gain a basic understanding of the important testing and test-related tools commonly used on agile projects.

This course is ideal for testers experienced with traditional software lifecycles, entry-level testers with an interest in agile testing, and experienced developers with a lot to a little knowledge of testing who work in agile projects. Testers, test analysts, test engineers, test consultants, test managers, user acceptance testers, and software developers working in agile organizations will find this course useful, informative, and fun. The ISTQB Foundation Level certificate is a pre-requisite to take the ISTQB Foundation Level Extension Agile Tester exam,  but non-certificate holders can take and benefit from the course.

  • Collaborate in an agile team, being familiar with agile principles and practices
