"Excellent course. Greatly increased my understanding of the principles and best practices of agile testing. Lots of practical exercises and student participation rather than endless PowerPoint slides. The Trainer was friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgeable. Suggestion: we covered a lot of ground in two days. Perhaps extend the course to three days ."
