What is best for my career? Is it enough to get just one AT*Micro™ micro-credential?

“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.”

— James B., who has earned 10 AT*SQA Micro-Credentials and 7 ISTQB/AT*SQA/IQBBA Certifications
