“I would recommend the AT*SQA Micro-Credentials to both new and experienced software testers. For anyone new to testing, they provide a great introduction and overview of the world of software testing. They are also broken up into bite-size chunks that are easier to understand and not as overwhelming as the larger full certifications.

For experienced testers, the AT*SQA Micro-Credentials provide a great way to brush up on fundamentals, plus possibly identify areas of interest or potential improvement for some of the more advanced topics.”
