Also, if you are looking for a career change as an aspiring tester, or someone looking to fill in gaps in your knowledge and skills, this course is for you.


Although there aren't any mandatory prerequisites, you will get a lot more from the course if you have already hold the ISTQB Certified Tester Foundation Level (CTFL) & ISTQB CTFL-Agile Tester Certificates - as this course will not cover the fundamentals and terminology of Testing and Agile. Other recommendations are another Agile or Scrum certificate like PSM or CSM or ASF or at least reading through the Scrum guide. Check out the syllabus for more ideas and literature  recommendations.
