Agile Tester Training Course Overview 

The Agile Tester Training course will teach delegates the skills and knowledge needed to work effectively with an Agile project team. Crucially, delegates will be able to differentiate between the testing role in agile projects, compared with the role of testers in non-agile projects. As such, delegates will gain an appreciation for Agile techniques and how it can improve business project performance.

This course begins by providing an insight into Daily Scrum. Scrum is an agile framework that enhances software delivery, through encouraging short, high-effort, collaborative, team “sprints” in an effort to improve productivity.
