Any self-respecting tester that calls themselves a professional should have Agile testing experience. If they don’t have experience, then there is something that they can do about it. They can now get certified by the ISTQB in the ISTQB Agile Tester Extension certification. This relatively new software testing certification aims to provide a tester with the knowledge they need to test software with an Agile environment.
The ISTQB Agile Tester certification is not actually a stand-alone certification, which means that not anyone can simply take the test, as there is a prerequisite. All testers wishing to take the exam must already hold the ISTQB Foundation certificate in Software Testing (CTFL). As this is the most popular software testing certification in the world, chances are; most testers will already have it.
This new certification from the ISTQB is already hugely popular among software testers in the QA world. This is in part due to the lack of ‘real’ certifications in the QA world. So, many testers are keen to find a way to obtain the knowledge required to enable them to pass the exam and get this new sought-after certification.
Some testers may be fortunate enough to get their employers to pay for them to attend a classroom-led ISTQB Agile training course. But, most testers do not have this privilege available to them. In addition, those testers who are currently looking for a way into the field of software testing may not have the personal budget to enable them to spend thousands on such training. Fortunately, there is another training option open to them and all testers who need to get certified, and this option is ‘distance-learning’.
There are some myths about distance learning, which are for the most part untrue. Such as there is no support for students, or there are no practice exams etc. Taking a look at the leading distance learning provide ‘Testing4Success.com’, their ISTQB Agile Tester Extension Training Course provides full Tutor Support, and 120 Practice Questions.
So what are the benefits of choosing a distance learning or online training course? flexibility is a huge advantage for any software tester who wishes to study for this certification. A distance learning course means you can study at any time of day you wish. In addition, you can effectively study from anywhere you wish too. For example, you could study while traveling or in a lunch break etc.
Cost is always a factor in any training. A good distance learning course will provide you with everything you need to pass the exam for just a few hundred dollars, which is a huge saving on the thousand dollars plus you would be looking at for a classroom-led course
If you are a tester look to obtain the ISTQB Agile Tester certification. Then perhaps you should consider the distance-learning or online method of training.
