Designing, creating, and maintaining test automation systems is the subject of the ISTQB® Test Automation Engineer (CT-TAE) certification. Additionally, it discusses the theories, procedures, equipment, and techniques for automating dynamic functional testing as well as how these tests relate to test management, configuration management, defect management, software development procedures, and quality assurance. A wide range of software life cycle methodologies, software system kinds, and test types can all be used with the methods presented.
The following are the Business Outcomes that an Advanced Level Test Automation Engineer certification holder is expected to achieve:
Assist in the development of a strategy for integrating automated testing into the testing process.
Determine which automation tools and technologies are ideally suited to each project and organization.
Develop a strategy and methodology for constructing a test automation architecture (TAA).
Create (new or modified) test automation systems that satisfy business requirements.
Make the transition from manual to automated testing.
Set up automated reporting and metric collection for tests.
Manage and optimize testing assets for ease of maintenance and to keep up with changing (test) systems.
