Certified Agile Tester – Foundation (CATF)

Certification Overview

Certified Agile Tester – Foundation (CATF)

Exam Code: CATF-001

Testing is a fundamental part of any successful project. Agile is flexible and adaptive with frequent feedback loops, far different from the traditional regimented methodologies.

The Agile Testing Foundation certification extends the broad understanding of testing acquired at Foundation Level and covers those topics which are considered to be essential knowledge for a test professional working on agile projects.

The Agile Testing Foundation Certification is suitable for those who are, or expect to be, working on agile projects and is also appropriate for anyone who wants a deeper understanding of agile development that specifically contains coverage of the options for including software testing as an integrated part of the agile development approach. This includes Scrum Masters, project managers, release managers, quality managers, software development managers, business analysts and consultants
