Sogeti UK to Add iSQI Certified Agile Tester(R) Course to Its 2013 Training
Sogeti UK Announces the Launch and Availability of the iSQI Certified Training
Course in Agile Testing
LONDON, 2013-01-24 10:30 CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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."
