ICAgile Certified Expert in Agile Testing (ICE-AT)

 

Today, the Agile industry tends to reserve the “expert” label for people who gain exposure in the community by writing great blogs, speaking at conferences and publishing agile books. While this is certainly a significant contribution to the community, we believe that there are great agilists within organizations who live agile every day and make exceptional contributions on the ground, where it matters most.

In light of this, ICAgile seeks to provide the industry with two things: (1) a Learning Roadmap for people to acquire knowledge and build capability in agile approaches, and (2) a means of recognizing expertise through real-world experience and demonstration of capability. ICAgile offers ICAgile Certified Expert (ICE) competency-based certifications for various disciplines across the Learning Roadmap.

To obtain the ICAgile Certified Expert in Agile Testing (ICE-AT), a candidate must demonstrate competency in the discipline of agile testing and test automation to a panel of three industry-recognized experts. The candidate will be assessed via an interactive remote videoconference session.

 

EXPERT:
Agile Testing
 
Cost

The fee for an ICE certification is $1275 USD. The first $300 is paid to reserve a review session with the assessment panel and the remaining balance is paid upon successful completion of the assessment. Rather than paying renewal fee, ICE holders are required to submit 12 mentoring hours per year. These hours can be met by helping other ICE candidates prepare and serving on ICE-AT assessment panels.
