"Knowledge with experience is power; certification is just a by-product"

What is CP-M-MAT?

CP-M-MAT stands for “Certified Professional – Mobile – Master Agile Testing” certification prepared and honored by “Agile Testing Alliance” & “University Teknologi Malaysia (UTM)”.

CP-M-MAT can be taken by anyone who wants to become a master of mobile agile testing. The only pre-requisite is that the person should be familiar with using smart phones and have exposure to various kind of smart phone applications.

The course is applicable for all roles and not just “testers”. Knowledge, experience & certification is consciously designed to focus on “agile testing” and not on “agile testers”.

How is it useful?

    CP-M-MAT prepares you for testing smart phones native apps, web apps and hybrid apps. Mobility and wearables around mobile technology is the fastest growing application area and there is a dearth of software testing professionals capable of testing mobile apps. The standard software testing approach may not work for mobile areas. This course helps in understanding and utilizing a comprehensive mobile testing strategy using real devices and emulators/simulators for android and iOS.

    The course introduces the participant to agile concepts and takes them through multiple sprints (iterations), exposing them to master the art of mobile testing with hands on exercises using agile tool kit implementation for KANBAN boards and retrospectives.

    Participants will also get access to a mind-map based mobile testing strategy tool kit and ready to use checklist around various strategy areas.

    The course introduces the participants through various facets of mobile testing strategy called as “GUIDABLE INCLUSIONS”
