Agile Tester Extension in a Nutshell

Why Agile Tester extension?

Agile testing is a relatively new approach to software testing that follows the principles of agile software development as outlined in the Agile Manifesto.

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.

There is a lot of confusion concerning agile testing – which means there’s an educational opportunity as well. The Agile Extension will give the tester the knowledge to be part of agile testing teams and achieve high performance.

What are the entry criteria?

To be eligible to undertake the Agile Tester Foundation Extension certification exam, candidates must first hold the ISTQB® Foundation Certificate.

Which levels are available after the Agile Tester Extension?

The Agile Tester at Foundation level will in future be complemented by two Advanced Agile modules that are currently under development.

However, as holders of the Foundation certificate, candidates are eligible to continue on to higher level software testing qualifications, certifying themselves at Advanced level, and then at the Expert level, as shown below.
