Automated Testing for Advanced Concepts

Advanced Concepts Available

  • Security Testing
  • Mobile Testing
  • Performance Testing
  • Web Consistency Testing
  • Accessibility Testing

Course Abstract

Participants interested in building their traditional web based automation skill set will benefit from this curricula. A deep dive into the testing concepts of Security Testing, Mobile Testing, Performance Testing, Web Consistency Testing and Accessibility Testing are explored. Participants can build upon their Automation Engineering knowledge and expand their agile testing framework. Each testing concept, will include its own module, with a culminating event tying in all concepts from each module. Participants will be immersed in not only theoretical aspects of each topic, but will have the advantage of “digging” into actual code. The course utilizes a lab based format for optimal learning and exploratory examples are provided for further inspection.


Technical agile members who desire to expand their automation testing skill set. The participant must have a clear understanding of agile concepts and also have a solid grasp of programming. This course is not for Manual Testers who are at novice level with their programming experience.


This course requires participants to have taken an acceptable introduction to agile course. The participants must have taken either the Automation Engineer course, Automation Architect course or have demonstrable programming skills.
