About This Program

********************************************************************************************************************

QA is a branch of software engineering that focuses on collaboratively building the right products the right way. Using agile practices and automation, QA aims to scale and certify expected quality.

Designed for QA engineers familiar with testing foundations and best practices, this bootcamp will equip participants with a set of tools to expand their capabilities in automation testing.

This free, four-week online educational program contains four main components: 

  1. Self-study learning path - Our QA team has curated learning paths to complement each workshop session. Completing the corresponding learning path in advance of each session will ensure your success in this course.
  2. Live, hands-on workshops - Each week, our Wizeline experts will lead you in two hands-on workshops that will give you the opportunity to apply your knowledge gained from the self-learning path in a practical way.
  3. Mentorship - You will be paired with a mentor who will guide you through the bootcamp via one-on-one sessions and deliverable feedback.
  4. Capstone project - You will ultimately apply everything that you learn throughout the bootcamp to a final capstone project made up of a number of deliverables.

At the end of this bootcamp, you will be able to design and implement a test strategy into a DevOps lifecycle, as well as create and maintain test automation frameworks that exceed customer expectations.

Registration & Selection Process

You have until November 1, 2021 to register.

Following registration, you will have three days to complete an English assessment and deliver a technical challenge on functional automation.

You will receive the assessment and challenge instructions through a confirmation email promptly after registering.
