How are the Online courses delivered?2018-02-15T03:37:24+00:00

All of our online courses are Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) training. This means that you are part of a ‘virtual classroom’, and just as in classroom training, there is an instructor, you can see and hear and talk to the instructor, but you have the flexibility to attend from anywhere in the world. We use GoToTraining as the training platform, it provides desktop sharing, telephone & VoIP, messaging and other features. You can connect from any device with a web browser. For audio best experience is using a USB headset.

What is the format for the courses?

The courses are all divided into sessions of no more than 4 hours (usually 3), in each session you will cover a number of topics. The sessions are usually scheduled for the morning, so you will be finished at lunch time and can fit them around your working day. You will be sent a workbook before the course and this also contains some optional ‘homework’ exercises for you to try between sessions.

Do I need to be a programmer for the courses?2018-02-15T03:31:21+00:00

No. All of our courses are designed from a testers perspective. However, some of the courses are more technical than others. For example, the Selenium WebDriver courses in C# or Java. As WebDriver does not provide a nice easy point & click, record & replay interface – it is just coding, some basic knowledge of C# or Java is assumed. If you haven’t got any programming experience, then following some of the free web tutorials first will help you with the course.

For Ranorex, the Advanced course does introduce programming in .NET. We usually use C# for the demos, but the workbooks also have any code examples in VB as well. If you have not done any programming before, then you may want to try out a free C# tutorial before attending the Advanced course such as https://www.microsoft.com/net/learn/in-browser-tutorial/1

Do you offer private courses just for our company?2018-02-15T03:36:18+00:00

Yes! We deliver closed/private courses all the time. This is usually a more cost-effective option if you have 4 or more delegates looking for the same course.

For example, a closed, company-specific course in either of the Ranorex courses costs $3100 (up to 5 delegates), then $100 each extra delegate
