Course Description

Staying competitive in today’s economy means companies must deliver the right products to market faster and better than ever before. Agile testing is essential to ensure the quality of the software systems, in which our society increasingly depends. More and more testers are participating in agile projects or are embedded within agile teams.

Building and managing a process of testing and selecting the most appropriate techniques to test in each case is not a trivial task, but essential to ensure the quality of software systems. Some questions that this course will help to answer:

  • Why does no one in my organization know the critical projects tests status?
  • Why only at the end we have found out that several features had never been tested?
  • Why the tests always take longer than originally planned?
  • Why the test environment is different from production and does not inspires confidence?

In this course, trainees will have the opportunity to acquire all the skills required to test agile successful and update their knowledge on methodologies, techniques and tools to support agile testing of software.


This course presents methods, techniques and tools needed to create and maintain a systematic process of agile testing in organizations. The course begins by presenting how to create a design of test cases, follows with documentation for the construction of the test and then the main concepts associated with the management of test software addressing best practices, advantages and limitations of each approach. This course has a strong practical component where you conduct small exercises using tools to test software.
