Developing a collaborative “can do” mindset to ensure whole team accountability for quality.
Are you looking to drive quality throughout your products without compromising speed of delivery? Building upon your existing Agile skills, this course will give you the knowledge and motivation to think like a quality champion.
PAQ is focused on practical application, experiential and collaborative learning through discussion and exercises. The intensive learning environment enables you experiment with new practices and techniques, accelerating you to a practitioner level.

To that end, the course provides opportunities to develop with instructional guidance from the trainer, who is a practitioner themselves. Sharing your experiences as part of the discussion groups not only encourages collaboration, but also an opportunity to adopt new and innovative ideas on how to optimise.

PAQ candidates are assessed at the end of the course with a practical assessment over 2.5 hours. This may be taken either directly at the end of the course, or separately scheduled. Candidates must attain a combined score of over 60% to obtain certification.
The assessment emphasises practical application of ‘hands-on’ competencies, evaluated against a product backlog release, to measure how well a candidate has understood the course content and methodologies. Each practical assessment contains one or two additional scenario-based questions requiring written answers that cover a selection of competencies.
