ISTQB Agile Testing certification is a popular next step after the Foundation Level certification, but what exactly is Agile testing, and how can it help your career and your company?

Agile development is very people-centered. Teams of people build software, and it is through continuous communication and interaction, rather than a reliance on tools or processes, that teams can work most effectively.

A tester on an Agile project will work differently than one working on a traditional project. Testers must understand the values and principles that underpin Agile projects, and how testers are an integral part of a whole-team approach together with developers and business representatives. The members in an Agile project communicate with each other early and frequently, which helps with removing defects early and developing a quality product.

Once you have gotten the ISTQB Agile Tester certification, you can then dive into the ISTQB Agile Technical Tester and really set yourself apart as an Agile tester. If you want to take an easy first step into Agile testing, consider AT*SQA’s Agile testing micro-credential.
