Test Automation, Web Performance and Load Testing Course Outline

 (2 days)
Version 2017
Special Note to New Hampshire Residents
This course has not yet been approved by the New Hampshire Department of Education. Please contact us for an update on when the class will be available in New Hampshire.

Course Description
This two-day course is designed for automation and performance testers who have basic .NET coding skills. The course is divided into two main parts: the first part focuses on creating, executing, and maintaining coded UI tests for a variety of application types, while the second part looks at web performance and load testing using Visual Studio 2017 and includes coverage of executing load tests both on-premises and in the cloud using Azure.

The course covers not only how to use the Microsoft tools, but also looks at testing processes and best practices for test automation and web performance testing.

This course includes hands-on labs to reinforce practical skills and ensure you’re ready to use the tools upon your return to the workplace.
