Software Testing Upskilling and Reskilling
Is software QA upskilling and reskilling for new hires with no software testing experience or current software testers who need to step up to more advanced skills? The answer is "both." To meet the ever-increasing demand for software testers, employers will need to utilize upskilling and reskilling across a large segment of their current and future employees.
Upskilling and reskilling in software testing allows employers to:
- Hire employees with no software testing experience and train them to be software QA analysts and testers
- Provide a career path for existing testers to gain new software QA knowledge so they can continue to grow and earn promotions
AT*SQA's AT*Micro™ micro-credentials are the easy way to accomplish help both new hires and current testers. These software testing micro-credentials cover both the basics of testing as well as advanced and specialized software QA areas.
Why do employers use AT*Micro™ software testing credentials? The demand for software QA testers continues to expand, placing greater time pressures on test teams. Meanwhile, employees are trying to maintain a healthy work-life balance, limiting their ability to study large bodies of knowledge. AT*Micro™ credentials solve both problems because they fit into a busy schedule and budget. AT*Micro™ credentials:
- Break large subjects into smaller topics that are quick and easy to learn
- Require only a day or two of studying and have smaller exams
- Include free study materials with the option for a cost-effective online training course
AT*Micro™ software testing credentials are good for both testers and employers. They make it easy for companies to develop new software testers while also building the next generation of software QA experts and managers.
The AT*Learn™ software testing training course and AT*Micro™ credentials are also available for volume discounts if companies have five or more employees who will be upskilling or reskilling.
