Our 1-day Introduction To Test Automation training course will provide you with a good understand of how to select the most appropriate automation tool plan, prepare and execute a test automation project.
Syllabus: Key points
Cost of tools versus ease of use
We will provide you with a good understanding of how to select the most appropriate automation tool plan, prepare and execute a test automation project.
Using a mix of classroom presentation, instructor led discussion and individual practical exercises, this training session has been designed to provide testers with good, basic understanding of test automation.
This Introduction To Test Automation training course covers the following topics:
Our Introduction To Test Automation training course is principally aimed at Test Practitioners who would like to understand more about automation tools and techniques before deciding on a test tool and embarking on an automation project.
Automated Software Testing Saves Time And Money
Software Tests have to be repeated often during development cycles to ensure quality. Every time source code is modified software tests should be repeated. For each release of the software it may be tested on all support operating systems and hardware configurations. Manually repeating these tests is costly and time consuming. Once created, automated tests can be run over and over again at no additional cost and they are much faster than manual tests. Automated software testing can reduce the time to run repetitive test from days to hours. A time saving that translates directly into cost savings.
Vastly Increases Your Test Coverage
Automated software testing can increase the depth and scope of tests to help improve software quality. Lengthy tests that are often avoided during manual testing can be unattended. They even be run on multiple computers with different configurations. Automated software testing can look inside an application and see memory contents, data tables, file contents and internal program states to determine if the product is behaving as expected.
Testing Improve Accuracy
Even the most conscientious tester will make mistakes during monotonous manual testing. Automated tests perform the steps precisely every time they are executed and never forget to record detailed results. Testers freed from repetitive manual tests have more time to create new automated software tests and deals with complex features.
Automation Does What Manual Testing Cannot
Even the largest software and QA departments cannot perform a controlled web application test with thousands of users. Automated testing can simulate tens, hundreds or thousands of virtual users interacting with a network, software and web applications.
You should have at least 12 month's experience of system testing. Some experience of writing code in a language such as Java or C++ would be useful, but isn't essential.

Our 2-day iSQI® Certified Mobile App Professional Tester training course provides you with an excellent introduce on and understanding of Mobile Application Testing using relevant exercises and examples to reinforce skills and knowledge. Whilst not a requisite, it extends the broad understanding of testing acquired at ISTQB Foundation Level and covers those topics which are considered to be essential knowledge for a test professional working on Mobile Apps. A Certified iSQI® CMAP Tester should work effectively within a mobile application team and environment.
Automated Software Testing is considered critical for big software development organisations and our Introduction To Test Automation training course has been designed to provide you with good, basic understanding of test automation.
