What is upskilling? Is it for "no experience" hires or current software testers?

Micro-credentials have been referred to as "today’s career-future-proofing tool" for individuals, but micro-credentials also future-proof your business. Micro-credentials are also a quick and inexpensive way to upskill employees in companies to help develop new software testers and build the next generation of QA experts and managers.

Upskilling allows employers to:

  • Retain or hire employees with no QA experience and train them to be software testers
  • Provide a career path for current testers to learn new areas and get promoted
AT*SQA's AT*Micro™ offerings are the easy way to accomplish both goals. These software testing micro-credentials cover both the basics of testing as well as advanced and specialized areas.

Why AT*Micro™? Let's face it, businesses are already working at 100% and employees have both personal and business life to juggle every day. Micro-credentials from AT*SQA fit into a busy schedule and a tight budget because:
  • They break up large subjects into smaller topics that are quick and easy to learn
  • They require only a day or two of studying, and the exams have just 10 questions
  • They include free study materials with the option for AT*Learn™ online training for just $7.99/month

If you plan to use AT*Micro™ credentials and AT*Learn training company-wide, contact AT*SQA for volume discounts.
