QA Automation

Why do we need automation testing?

QA has a lot of routine tasks, especially when releases come several times a week on your project. It is much more convenient to automate the repetitive processes not to get burned down and to do more interesting tasks. To perform it, you have to learn to program, at least at the basic level.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will the training take?

The course lasts 6-7 weeks including attending lectures and completing practical tasks. Each lecture usually lasts 2 academic hours, and it will take you from 6 to 20 hours to complete each home assignment. That is why it is quite possible to combine our automation training courses with your regular job. 

Who is this course for?

The curriculum is aimed at those who are already working in testing and who want to understand how to automate routine tasks. The key to automatization is programming; so, you should be ready to get to know it and not to be afraid of writing code. 

What should I learn before the course starts?

We recommend grasping the basic concepts of QA, principles of performing functional testing, programming basis and Java key constructions. If you are a fresher in QA, we recommend taking our basic course firstly and then coming back to this very course. 

What does a testing automation specialist do?

Every time developers launch a new product or update the existing one, it is necessary to check if everything works well and without any defects. A tester creates a test scenario and writes a program to implement it. They work in Selenium WebDriver and Git.  

Why does a QA specialist need to write code?

If you want to become a testing automation engineer, you won’t have any automation without programming. It does not mean you have to learn to program for years. It rather means you have to learn basic algorithms and a programming language, e.g., Java to create auto tests. 

Is it possible to grow from a functional test into an automation specialist?

Yes, it is. It is a logical wayEven after this online training in Java automation testing, you can continue working as a manual tester, but the skills of automation will help you perform some things at work faster. And this is a good reason for asking your employer for a pay rise. 

Do you help with job placement?

Yes, we do. We offer to work for a1qa team to a lot of graduates. Each graduate, who would like to look for a job themselves, gets some assistance in creating a resume and LinkedIn profile and a reference letter as well. 

Are there any specific requirements for trainees on this course?

We have worked out the curriculum especially for those who already understand QA basis, know functional testing and maybe have already worked in this field. A general understanding of OOP and Java syntax will be very valuable. 

Can I take this course if I don’t live in Kazakhstan?

Yes, you can. This is an online course in automated QA testing. Therefore, we don’t care where you are. 

How to pay for the course?

Send a request from this page. Our manager will get in touch with you and will send a special code. If you face any issues, contact our managers – they will help solve everything. 

What is QA Academy?

QA academy is a training center for future specialists in the sphere of software testing. We work on the base of a1qa company which has provided testing services for more than 20 years. In 2013 our center started teaching students mostly to prepare specialists for a1qa. Up to now we have trained more than 10,000+ specialists from 20 countries. 

Why should I join particularly QA Academy training?

You will get a chance to learn from hands-on specialists who are working in QA there and then.  

Besides, we carefully monitor the quality of our training and the graduates’ results. Our aim is to train as many testers as possible for our own projects.
