What is CP-MAT?
CP-MAT stands for “Certified Professional – Manual Agile Testing”.

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”.
This program is hands and practical program and takes you through an entire agile case study where focus would be on helping you find and evolve your agile testing mindset.
How is it useful?
