Description
  • Develop a plan to integrate automated testing into the testing process.
  • Evaluate tools and technology for automation customized for your projects.
  • Create an approach and methodology for building a test automation architecture (TAA).
  • Design and develop test automation solutions that meet the business needs.
  • Learn approaches to enable the transition of testing from a manual to an automated approach.
  • Discover how to create automated test reporting and metrics
  • Understand how to manage and optimize testing assets to facilitate maintainability 

This course provides participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to implement automation for software projects. The course focuses on the concepts, methods, tools, and processes for automating dynamic functional tests and the relationship of those tests to test management, configuration management, defect management, software development and quality assurance processes.

Methods described are generally applicable across a variety of software lifecycle approaches (e.g., agile, sequential, incremental, iterative), types of software systems (e.g., embedded, distributed, mobile) and test types (functional and non-functional testing).

Real-world practical exercises reinforce learning objectives, strengthen the understanding and application of topics in the course and prepares participants for the exam.

Course Pre-Work
