Software Testing Training Courses

Software Testing Training

Testing requires 30% - 50% of project time and resources, but - in spite of the significant increase of test awareness during the last 20 years - it is still not appreciated sufficiently. If testing takes 30-50% of project budget, why do companies normally spend less than 5% of their training budget on test courses? The answer is, many people believe that testing can somehow be done without specialist skills, just using your common sense, while for example programming in Python requires at least minimum professional knowledge. This is to some extent true, but it is worth remembering that test productivity and efficiency can be raised dramatically, using specialist knowledge and skills, which are provided by our training courses.

Selenium for Victims of Manual Testing

The work flow was very easy to follow. He (The trainer) stayed on topics just long enough for the concepts to sink in, but not so long that I was bored. Following along with examples was also extremely helpful.

Luke was a fantastic trainer and I felt like I came out of the training with a much firmer grasp on Selenium and Selenium best practices.

The trainer was excellent, the only reason I have not indicated all sixes was that there were some subjects that I was less interested in but this is just due to personal taste and career path.

There were computer based activities e.g writing code and using existing programs.
