"Knowledge with experience is power; certification is just a by-product"

What is CP-CCT?

CP-CCT stands for “Certified Professional – Cucumber driven Continuous Testing” certification prepared and honored by “Agile Testing Alliance” & “University Teknologi Malaysia (UTM)”.
You should have basic knowledge of Java. CP-MAT OR CP-BAT is the prerequisite for this continuous testing level certification called CP-CCT . Alternatively you should have Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM) or PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® or Certified professional Devops Foundation (CP-DOF) or similar basic Agile / DevOps training. In absence of this you should be having at least 1 year of proven relevant experience in Agile/DevOps or Testing.
The course is applicable for all roles and not just "testers". Knowledge, experience & certification is consciously designed to focus on "Practical Continuous Testing using Cucumber and BDD" and is not limited to any specific role like "agile testers" or "DevOps testers"

How is it useful?

    CP-CCT helps you in learning the collaborative methodology of BDD using Cucumber as tool. The course covers creating executable specifications on API and GUI layer. BDD can only achieve its full potential when it is combined with DevOps culture of Continuous Delivery. Cucumber with Jenkins helps in establishing the engineering practices required to enable Continuous Testing which is foundation for Continuous Delivery. All the concepts are driven using the case studies and actual tasks that are typically involved in any live agile projects. The course introduces you to the tools and languages such as Cucumber, Gherkin, Java, JUnit, Maven, Cobertura, Jenkins and Selenium.

Am I Eligible?

    You should have basic knowledge of Java. CP-MAT OR CP-BAT is the prerequisite for this continuous testing level certification called CP-CCT. Alternatively you should have Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM) or PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® or Certified professional Devops Foundation (CP-DOF) or similar basic Agile / DevOps training.
