Automation Tester course
Take the next step in your testing career - learn how to write automated tests in Java.
Why the Automation Tester course?
This is a second-level specialist course aimed at manual testers. The course is delivered remotely on a weekend basis, so you can easily combine it with work.
Why is it worth it?
This is the next step in your career as a tester. The course will allow you to advance at work and open up to new opportunities as you will also learn the basics of Java. According to a uk.talent.com, automation testers earn on average EUR 12,000 / £10,000 more than manual testers per year.
This course is aimed at people who know manual testing. If you are patient, meticulous, you enjoy working with people and are able to empathise with users, the job of an automation tester is for you.
What will you learn?
During the course you will learn about the tools and working environment of a tester. You will prepare your first test scripts. You will also master the use of test machines in everyday work and learn how to use frameworks for testing.

Frequently asked questions
How does automated testing differ from manual testing?
Manual and automated testing differ on several criteria. These include time, accuracy, reporting and pre-requirements.
Above all, automatic testing is much quicker than manual testing. A human is not needed during the process of testing applications or websites. It happens automatically.
Opinions are divided as to the accuracy of tests. On the one hand, manual tests are performed by a human being, who may simply make a mistake or fail to notice something. On the other hand, automatic tests execute specific test scripts describing one particular behavioural variant and may miss apparent defects. Therefore, it is worthwhile for testers to gain both manual and automation competencies.
Results and reports from automated tests can be easily found in the system. They create themselves, which saves the tester time.
The entry requirements are also different. The main difference is that it is helpful to know programming languages to perform automated tests. Java, for example, is quite a popular language among testers.
When is it better to perform automated tests?
In the beginning, it is worth knowing one thing - it will be rather difficult to replace manual tests with automatic ones once and for all. However, there are situations in which the latter definitely work better, as they save a lot of time and work. We can list here e.g:
- performance tests (which check the functioning of the system under heavy user traffic),
- load tests (testing the system under the conditions of processing a large amount of data)
- functional tests (allowing to introduce quick changes).
A separate category is also simply repetitive activities, which can be put into the hands of machine checking.
Is it worth going to the Automation Tester bootcamp if I haven't done the Manual Tester course?
No. The Automation Tester course is a second-level course. This means that it builds on the knowledge from the Manual Tester bootcamp. One without the other does not exist or rather - should not exist.
Therefore, the Automation Tester course is designed for those who have already started their testing adventure or want to increase their market advantage right from the start of their IT career.
Test scripts created by an automation tester will be better and much more accurate if they are created by someone with a background in manual testing.
Do I need programming knowledge to carry out automated tests?
Automated testing requires knowledge of at least one programming language that allows the creation of test scenarios.
Testers do not need to be able to make the recommended changes. They simply carry out automated tests. On the other hand, Java programmers or other programmers must implement the changes indicated by their colleagues. However, in order for the programmers to have something to implement, the tester himself must write a script that checks the functionality of the website or application. And this cannot be done without the knowledge of a programming language.
Where do automation testers work?
Testers - both manual and automation - work where websites, applications or games are developed. Their task is to check and test the operation of these products in various situations.
Testers with a bootcmap will find their place, for example, in software houses, marketing agencies, research teams or large corporations.
