ISO IEC 27001 Certified ISMS Foundation

5 days


The course consists of four days in the classroom, where the split is around 50% theory/classroom discussion and 50% practical workshops and team exercises that take delegates through the activities of a typical agile project. The exam takes place on Day 5


There are no mandatory pre-requisites for CAT, but we do recommend you have some experience of testing as the course assumes some knowledge and will not teach basic testing knowledge, such as fundamentals of testing, test case specification or testing terminology. Ideal candidates are:

  • Testing practitioners moving into Agile projects to perform testing activities
  • Individuals already performing testing activities in an Agile project who wish to increase their effectiveness
  • Individuals who are interested in the testing activities with Agile, such as Managers, SCRUM Masters and Developers.


Those attending the course will be familiar with and have practical experience of the following:

  • Basic testing terminology and the activities associated with the fundamental test process
  • The differences between functional and non-functional testing, including the concepts of Performance and Usability

Course Outline

At the end of the course, successful delegates will be able to

  • Understand the principles behind the Agile approach to software development
  • Differentiate between the testing role in Agile projects compared with the role of testers in non-agile projects
  • Contribute positively as an Agile team member focused on testing
  • Appreciate the challenges and difficulties associated with the non-testing activities performed in an Agile team
  • Demonstrate a range of soft skills required by effective Agile team members

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
