Test Automation Training While You Are Teleworking

March 27th, 2020 by inflectra

As we discussed in our blog on Teletesting (testing while teleworking), working from home has its challenges, with difficulties in setting work/home boundaries, avoiding distractions and knowing when to take a break. However teleworking and being at home during a quarantine or lockdown is a perfect time to brush up on your skills and get some training. So, building on our new Rapise Quick Start implementation packages, we are pleased to offer some free training while you are sequestered.

Free Rapise Test Automation Training

We are right now (and for the next month until April 30th) offering Rapise training for free for your employees. Yes, you read that correct!

This offer includes training sessions, labs and if your employees successfully complete the basic course, a certificate in the end.


What Are The Benefits of Doing it Now?

Even though it feels like an eternity right now, when the current Covid-19 Coronavirus situation is over you and your employees will be ready to optimize your business processes and software testing by applying automation.


What is Covered?

We have a comprehensive list of Rapise training courses available, see the section below for more details.
