The Certified Agile Tester (CAT) certificate was launched by the International Software Quality Institute (iSQI) to offer the leading, internationally- recognised Agile certification for software testers working in an Agile project environment or those interested in Agile, such as managers, Scrum masters and developers.
The Certified Agile Tester certificate forms part of our software testing certification portfolio and career path, and is aligned with SFIA/SFIAplus (Skills Framework for the Information Age).
The certificate is awarded to successful delegates who complete a 5 day training course which features practical exercises, continuous soft skills assessment throughout the training, followed by theoretical and practical exams. Designed as a very interactive course, delegates have the opportunity to discuss and share their experiences with others and to extend their knowledge of testing in agile projects. Practical exercises based on a complete agile life cycle are used to help delegates to put learning and their knowledge in to practice throughout the course.
Please note: This course includes the use of PC's to support the learning exercises and assessments throughout the training, as well as being used for the Examination. Should you wish to run this course at your own premises, then PC's must be provided for each delegate.

Delegates should choose Certified Agile Tester if they are:
- Moving into an Agile project performing testing activities
- Already performing testing activities in an Agile project and wish to increase their effectiveness
- Interested in the testing activities within Agile, such as Managers, SCRUM Masters and Developers
The examination is separated into three different parts:
- A soft skills assessment on capacity for teamwork (10%)
- An written exam to demonstrate profound theoretical knowledge (45%)
- A practical exam where testing skills are put to the test (45%)
The pass mark is 65% over all three assessments and candidates must also obtain 50% in each of the three elements of the examination.
Delegates who have a disability or whose first language is not English will normally be allowed an additional 15 minutes extra time.
