ICAgile Certified Professional in Agile Test Automation (ICP-ATA)
The test automation certification through ICAgile, the ICAgile Certified Professional in Agile Test
Automation (ICP-ATA), is one of two Continuing Learning Certifications (CLCs) on the Agile Testing Track. This 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.
Who Should Earn their Test Automation Certification?
This test automation certification is appropriate for Agile testers, test engineers, or those aspiring to these roles with a passion for software quality and a desire to learn and practice Agile Test Automation. Test Managers with an interest in learning or improving automation skills and developers with an interest in automation beyond unit testing will also benefit from this certification.
