What is CP-CPT?

CP-CPT stands for “Certified Professional – Continuous Performance Testing” certification prepared and honored by Agile Testing Alliance.
The course is applicable for all roles and not just “testers”. Knowledge, experience & certification is consciously designed to focus on “continuous, agile and DevOps testing” and not on “being only a tester”.

How is it useful ?

CP-CPT helps you get into the testing mindset in any agile or DevOps project with performance testing being the core area. It is important to test performance of any application on a continuous or regular basis. Even minor changes in code can have immense consequences for the performance benchmarks/baselines of the application. A continuous integration (CI) server with performance testing tools is the fastest and most secure way to detect such performance issues.

This program will enable Agile and DevOps teams to run continuous and automated performance tests on their web and mobile applications without causing bottlenecks in the process. Developers and testers gain immediate, actionable insight allowing them to fix performance issues early, before they become costly crashes in production

ATA’s tag line is surest way to learn practical agile testing and this program imbibes the same in it. The continuous performance testing is actually practical continuous performance testing based on tools like JMeter, Taurus and Jenkins.

CP-CPT provides a comprehensive understanding of using JMeter as a Performance Testing tool for different environments through ractical approach. Emphasis is placed on planning a load test, understanding scenarios, adding schedules, building scenarios, using runtime settings, monitoring performance, executing scenarios, how to do work load modeling in a practical way. Program also compares different performance testing tools and would help participants to

Create pluggable samplers which allow unlimited testing capabilities.
Understand several load statistics which may be chosen with pluggable timers.
Understand to use functions which can be used to provide dynamic input to a test or provide data manipulation.
Integrate performance tests with Jenkins for continuous integration of performance tests.
Multiple test output formats.

Am I Eligible ?

Anyone who wants to learn continuous performance testing is eligible for this course. There is no pre-requisite for this course. CP-CPT can be taken by anyone who wants to become a professional in continuous performance testing. The only pre-requisite is that the participant should have a graduation in any engineering and science stream. Participant should have basic knowledge of any database, computer Networks and protocols specially HTTP.

Duration ?

CP-CPT is designed specifically for corporates and working professionals alike. If you are a corporate and can’t dedicate full day for training, then you can opt for either 6 half days course or 3 full days course which is followed by theory and practical exams.
