The ICP-ATA is one of two Continuing Learning Certifications (CLCs) on the Agile Testing Track. The certification focuses primarily on test automation from an agile tester’s perspective as opposed to a programmer’s perspective. Students will learn how to set up an overall test automation strategy, including determining which types of tests are better suited for automated versus manual execution. The certification also highlights strategies for creating automated story and feature tests as well as system and integration tests. Because courses are technology-agnostic, participants will write automated tests using pseudo-code in the classroom. This also helps maximize opportunities for students to learn from one another, regardless of their individual technical expertise. If you would like to learn more about the world of test automation, this is the right certification for you.
Typically, training providers will cover the required learning objectives for this certification in approximately seven hours of instructional activities over the course of one or two days.
