QA Automation (UFT / QTP )


Course Description :

QA Automation Software Unified Functional Testing (UFT) / Quick Test Pro (QTP) performs functional and regression test automation for all critical software web applications and environment such as advanced development technologies, Web, REST API, and SOAP services, enterprise resource planning (ERP), and customer relationship management (CRM) applications. UFT is leading software automation testing tool in the market. There are many open sources and low-cost, automation tools available in the market but still, UFT / QTP is a popular in automation because of its advanced feature, better control over automation process and excellent support team. UFT automation supports cross-browser testing like script once and runs in all test environments across browsers including Chrome, Firefox, IE, and Safari. UFT can also do continuous integration testing.  

This course is specially structured for the QA Tester who wants to learn test automation and want to start a new career in Test Automation by using UFT/QTP tool. The skills learned by participants can immediately apply back on the job. Using a real-world case study, students will encounter issues, decisions, and testing experiences comparable to those in a real-world work environment. This course will also focus on problem analysis, tuning, debugging, or tools. This course extends beyond the simple use of a tool to look at the nature of software testing, the challenges surrounding testing and how to overcome these challenges to make the performance testing more effective.  

In this course, an attendee will learn how to automate functional test scripts for a regression test suite automation by using HP UFT/QTP functionality and features. The attendee will get more control when they know how to handle dynamic object by writing descriptive programming through Visual Basic Language script.  

This course is planned for people who don't have any programming background and also the people who want to use their programming knowledge to become an expert in automation testing in UFT/QTP. The course will consider every attendee as a new in automation will cover every single step thoroughly to understand clearly everything from scratch. The Attendee can enrich their knowledge by participating in the discussion thread, mentoring, completing assignments and participating in the real-world problem-based Boot Camp. 

Prerequisite :

Bachelors or Associate degree from any background
