Certification Pathway to Successful Test Automation
Automated Testing was the most popular testing topic in the 2019 ASTQB/AT*SQA software testing survey. Yet automation continues to be misunderstood and misapplied. While tool courses teach users to use a specific test tool, certification and the optional accredited training bring a holistic approach that teaches and certifies individuals on success factors, including: planning, test automation architecture, deployment risks, metrics & reporting, transitioning, and continuous improvement. These techniques can be applied to existing or purpose-built test tools across software development methodologies that can lead to continuous testing for the software delivery pipeline.
