Certified Agile Testing and Automation

In this three-day Agile Testing and Automation course you will:

  • Learn to internalize the Agile testing mindset and develop higher quality products
  • Understand how business, development, and testing collaborate in an Agile environment
  • Learn key test engineering techniques such as test-driven development and exploratory testing
  • Discover automation strategies and frameworks and types of test automation

In recent years, organizations have been increasingly turning to Agile to produce higher quality products and see return on investment more quickly. In this new environment, testers have a crucial role on the Agile team from day one of the project but often lack the knowledge they need to be successful. Join us for training and you will be a step ahead of the curve.

In this hands-on course, we keep lecture to a minimum and instead teach through experience using methods such as group and individual exercises and class discussion. You will walk away from the class with practical knowledge you can implement the day you return to work.


There is no coding experience necessary. Having some knowledge or experience with Agile principles and practices is helpful. This class is ideal for those willing to expand their role as a professional tester and those who have an openness to changing their workflow.

Certifications from ICAgile

After completing this course, students will receive two certifications from the International Consortium for Agile (ICAgile)

  • Agile Testing Certified Professional (ICP-TST)
  • Agile Test Automation Certified Professional (ICP-ATA)

These two certifications are part of the ICAgile Agile Testing track and provide professional recognition of thorough knowledge in Agile testing and test automation techniques and practices.

Students will also be eligible to claim 21 Project Management Institute (PMI)® Professional Development Units (PDUs) as well as 21 International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) Continuing Development Units (CDUs).
