  • The target professionals are:
  • Testers with experience in traditional software development life cycles;
  • Entry-level testers with an interest in agile testing;
  • Developers working on agile projects who want to grow their testing skills.

Next steps

The Foundation Level Extension Agile Tester course establishes a platform from which further more specialist skills and knowledge may be acquired at the ISTQB Advanced Level.  Holders of a Foundation Certificate qualification can continue on to higher level software testing qualifications, such as:

  • ISTQB Advanced Level qualifications, which comprise Test Manager, Test Analyst and Technical Test Analysis
  • iSQI® Certified Agile Tester (CAT)

However, attending the Foundation Level Extension Agile Tester course is neither a necessary step to these further qualifications, nor does it require students to study further.
