| CAT in the Cloud!

CAT goes cloud!

 

In times of digitisation and environment protection our CAT exam goes digital, too. As of January 1st 2018, the practical exam will be available in the cloud. This means that iSQI will provide Linux cloud containers for the practical exam. The cloud containers can be started automatically through the database for each exam in the correct number. The participants only need Internet access. This replaces the USBs for the exam and facilitates the process. There is no need to test the PCs with the test USBs before the exam, no need to check if the Operating System has to be updated. In those cases where internet access is not possible, due to security or other reasons, the current USB exam solution can still be used.

Agile testing is different, and that’s why iSQI’s CAT Certified Agile Tester® is different. It centres on the most important element in agile projects: You!
Theory is the foundation of any certification; however, iSQI’s CAT Certified Agile Tester® goes above and beyond, focusing mainly on hands on situations which help ensure the mandatory soft skills required when working in an agile environment. Two of the most important skills of any successful agile tester are the ability to collaborate with your team and maintaining the self-discipline to properly manage your time. We are proud to say that this certification has been created by testers for testers!
