Also, importantly, from organizations seeking to develop their team skills in test automation with WebDriver. Training providers appreciate the added-value to their customers of a highly practical course and, indeed, certification  exams delivered to the highest standard.”

About Selenium WebDriver

Selenium WebDriver is a free framework for automating web applications and software testing. With this tool the tester can record interactions with a web application and automatically repeat them later at will. This function saves time, costs and risk making Selenium a leading tool globally. Many organizations use proprietary tools from vendors that rely on Selenium or have Selenium integrated. For these companies, professionals with Selenium Webdriver knowledge are not only useful, but necessary.

  • Upon the successful completion of the course, you will be able to create and run Selenium WebDriver tests without supervision.
  • You will be able to apply correctly test automation principles to build a maintainable test automation solution.
  • You will be able to choose and implement correct test automation tools.
  • You will be able to implement Selenium WebDriver scripts that execute functional web application tests and implement maintainable scripts.

The Alliance4Qualification (A4Q) is the official licensor for the Selenium Tester Scheme.
