iSQI announces the launch of a new agile certification!

PAQ – Practitioner in Agile Quality

The Practitioner in Agile Quality (PAQ) is an accelerated learning agile certification, designed to support people with current agile knowledge to take their skills to a practitioner level in an intensive learning environment.

PAQ immerses participants in agile practices with an emphasis on the key competencies essential for high performing agile teams working together collaboratively to increase value to the business and the customer. A Practitioner in Agile Quality can use agile as an effective pathway to accelerate the delivery of quality software.   

Who should take PAQ certification?

Agile quality is the collective responsibility of the whole team. PAQ certification is not just for testers but anyone, and everyone, in the team who needs to continuously deliver better products, services and user experiences using agile.

The course builds on existing testing, software quality management and agile theory inspiring and building confidence through hands-on exercises and experiential learning aligned to the PAQ Competency Framework. The final practical assessment ensures that PAQ holders have demonstrated that they can achieve the expected PAQ competency outcomes.
