What is CP-SAT?
CP-SAT stands for “Certified Professional – Selenium Automation Testing” certification prepared and honored by “Agile Testing Alliance” & “University Teknologi Malaysia (UTM)”. CP-SAT is the only global accepted certification exam which has practical assessment.
Having basic knowledge of Java Programming and Manual Testing is the only prerequisite for this training.
The course is applicable for all roles and not just “testers”. Knowledge, experience & certification is consciously designed to focus on “agile testing” and not on “agile testers”.
The course covers IDE (older IDE), this was also a part of the syllabus earlier. Now it is not. You can directly start from the WebDriver section if you want to skip this entirely.
RC is also for older versions of Selenium and may be relevant to those who are still maintaining legacy scripts and are still using RC. This is also not part of the latest CP-SAT syllabus.
How is it useful?
CP-SAT is designed to train agile professionals with the basics of testing web applications using Selenium leading to advanced topics. You can build, enhance, and maintain scripts in the Eclipse IDE Editor and port Selenese scripts to execution in RC and Selenium 2.x (WebDriver). The training is combination of theory as well as hands-on execution of scripts using the features of Selenium with ample time given to practice until you have mastered the concepts. The Selenium IDE plug-in builds effective and resilient test scripts using a wide variety of current programming languages. The focus is on the practical application of Selenium to resolve common web automated testing challenges. This course focuses on Selenium IDE with RC/Selenium 2.x configuration and execution related concepts using JUnit and TestNG. There is an extensive coverage on Selenium Reporting mechanism, Data Driven Testing, getting started Grid concepts, Continuous Integration (CI) with Jenkins/Ant.
Am I Eligible?
Anyone having basic experience Java programming and manual testing can go for this certification.
