Sogeti UK to add iSQI Certified Agile Tester® course to its 2013 training schedule

Sogeti UK announces the launch and availability of the iSQI certified training course in agile testing.

London, UK, 24 January 2013

 Sogeti UK, a leading provider of training and professional technology services specialising in software testing, has just added a new five day training course to the 2013 schedule with a view to provide comprehensive training and a professional qualification to individuals involved in testing within an agile development environment.

In the past 2-3 years, Agile and Scrum have become increasingly important and are now recognised as key methodologies in software and systems development. Sensing a demand from developers and testers alike, the UK subsidiary of Sogeti has introduced an iSQI certified training course on Agile testing methods, available from February 2013.

Career-based training is essential to enhance performance, productivity and to retain talent, and yet the latest World Quality Report states that only 5% of firms feel that their internal testing resources are ‘best in class’. Confidence levels are reportedly low due to a lack of knowledge of core testing processes and methodologies, identifying a need to get up to speed with the latest testing tools and technologies.

Sogeti’s announcement of the new agile course responds to this gap in knowledge, adding to an already comprehensive portfolio of training courses covering all aspects of testing and supporting the on-going professional development of test managers and analysts. Sogeti delivers both practical courses and certified courses, accredited by the three main testing certification authorities, BCS Institute (formally known as ISEB), ISTQB and iSQI, with success rates well above the international average.

John Mason, training and development coordinator at Sogeti UK, said: “The use of agile development is growing rapidly within the UK and around world. At Sogeti we want not just to keep up with changing trends, but also to be a leader in the field. We want to ensure that our customers have the right knowledge and skills in place to deliver Agile projects successfully, and when our customers need us to support testing on their agile projects it’s important that we are always able to fulfil that demand with fully trained and certified consultants. We are one of the first companies to offer this training within the UK and with this course we aim to take a reasonable share of the growing external agile training market.”
