Selenium is the de facto standard for front-end test automation of modern web technologies due to the flexible and powerful browser automation capabilities of WebDriver.

The Selenium Tester Foundation is a practical training course aimed at test professionals who desire a basic understanding of Selenium WebDriver for creating web application tests. Participants will learn about factors to consider when deciding to automate testing as well as specific techniques for navigation, interacting with GUI elements, logging, reporting, and more. Upon the successful completion of the course, a participant will be able to create and run Selenium WebDriver tests without supervision.  

This is a three-day course with time for the exam on the third day. It consists of equal parts lecture/ demonstrations and hands-on exercises. The certification exam is a 60 minute, 40 question, multiple-choice exam, and a pass is awarded for answering 65% of questions correctly.

Who is it for?

This course is ideal for automators and those who want to learn automation using the Selenium WebDriver toolset. While this course is accessible to anyone wanting to acquire a basic, hands-on knowledge of Selenium, the main audiences are:

  • People with no test automation experience who are starting to automate in Selenium (or who want to get a job doing that)
  • People with some GUI test automation experience who are new to Selenium or starting to automate in Selenium (or who want to get a job doing that)
  • People with some non-GUI test automation experience who are new to Selenium and starting to automate in Selenium (or who want to get a job doing that)

What’s the purpose of test automation?

As automation plays an increasingly important role in the systems development process, employers have begun to accept the need for structure and qualification as a way of standardising things and getting a return on their investment. Senior trainer Rosie Sheldon talks you though the Selenium WebDriver Foundation Tester course.

Entry Requirements

Attendees should have general knowledge of basic programming and some knowledge of Python.

Exam

The course runs for three days, with one hour set aside on the third day for the Selenium Foundation exam if desired. The certification exam is a 60 minute, 40 question, multiple-choice exam. To attain the Selenium Foundation certification candidates must pass the A4Q Selenium Tester Foundation certification exam.

The exam shall be comprised of 40 multiple-choice questions. Each correct answer has a value of one point. A score of at least 65% (that is, 26 or more questions answered correctly) is required to pass the exam. The time allowed to take the exam is 60 minutes. If the candidate’s native language is not the examination language, the candidate may be allowed an extra 25% (15 minutes) time.

Course Objectives

By the end of the course, attendees should be able to:

  • Correctly apply test automation principles to build a maintainable test automation solution
  • Choose and implement correct test automation tools
  • Implement Selenium WebDriver scripts that execute functional web application tests
  • Implement maintainable scripts

7 reviews for iSQI Certified Selenium WebDriver Foundation Tester

  1. Inder Dhaliwal | Senior Test Engineer

    Successfully completed the A4Q foundation certificate training for Selenium (with Python). Thank you TSG Training for an excellent remotely delivered course:

  2. Sam Moule | Senior Test Analyst |LV

    Very informative & made a technical subject easy to understand with lots of examples to work through together.

  3. Wayne John | |

    The trainer was very knowledgeable and helpful and the course was well presented.

  4. Dom Walter | Test Analyst |Self employed

    Rosie was very knowledgeable about the subject and very happy to answer delegates’ queries.
    My only criticism of the course was that I felt we could have been introduced to Selenium earlier. Although it’s vital to learn how to identify elements by XPath etc, it seemed that we could have approached this once we’d seen Selenium itself to provide more context.

  5. James Ashcroft | Test Analyst |Leeds Beckett University

    Really Informative, useful course that I already have plans for applying within my role. Rosie was very patient and helpful, felt that we could ask questions freely and were frequently provided with good knowledge and insight.

  6. John Kurowski | Principal Consultant |Expleo Group

    Slides were very wordy. Would be great to have an environment to try out the exercises as we didn’t have a copy of Thonny

  7. Fokhrul Islam| Test Lead|AS Watson

    Good course, well structured but as its done virtually I believe there should be more hands on involved. 3 days is not enough.
