ISTQB ATFL training

The Department of Software Engineering is an accredited ISTQB training provider.

We hold ISTQB Foundation Level Agile Tester trainings for IT professionals. Our training courses are offered in English. We usually use our own premises as the place of the training courses, but we are ready to organise the trainings at the premises of any interested company with a reasonable number of attendees.

The goal of the training is to connect the basic software testing competences to Agile development, and to prepare for the International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB) Agile Tester Foundation Level (ISTQB Agile Tester) examination. While the ISTQB Certified Tester Foundation Level (CTFL) training material introduces the basic testing concepts and processes through the traditional development models, the Agile Tester programme shows how these fit into the Agile software development practices. In the Agile world, testing comprises an integral part of the development more so than in the case of a traditional SDLC, and it seems to be more iterative and less plannable. But that is not the case. Although there are differences indeed, we can work with the same concepts and methods; only the advantages and disadvantages of the different techniques are reevaluated. According to this understanding, the goal of the training is to introduce the basic concepts of Agile development and the role of testing within it to the trainees.

The target audience of the training are those testers and test managers of the IT companies who are working or will work in an Agile environment, but, due to its close relationship to the Agile world, this course can be useful to Agile developers and managers as well.
