Planet Test Automation: First Steps 

A Level 2 Automation Certificate Webinar Series


1. Who is this series for?

This series is for a number of target groups:

  1. Software testers who wish to transition into test automation, and who have basic understanding of what-how-when of using tests automation in their work
  2. The participants of the Level 1 Test Automation series called Test Automation, Demystified who wish to continue to dive deeper into test automation theory and practice 
  3. Current Rapise users interested in improving their effectiveness of using Inflectra’s scriptless test automation platform - Rapise in their test automation efforts.


2. Is the webinar series free?

Yes, both the live webinar series (including all 5 webinars) and the certificate are free.


3. Are there any pre-requisites for the series? 

There are a few pre-requisites for the webinar. As test automation verges on software engineering, the participants are expected to have a basic understanding of programming concepts and software testing.

There are no other pre-requisites for attending the 1st webinar, but if you are planning on joining any follow-up webinars, please make sure you are all caught up with other participants.

Additionally, we strongly encourage you to sign up for a free trial version of Rapise to follow along the practical aspects of the webinar series.


4. Are webinars recorded?

Yes. You can find all webinar recordings at Inflectra’s Youtube Channel. Webinars will be unlisted or private until February 1, 2020. If you registered for a webinar, you will receive a link to the webinar recording via email.


5. If I miss a webinar, how can I catch up?

As long as you are registered for any of the webinars, we will send you an email to help you stay on track. The following will be sent in each post-webinar email:

  • Webinar overview/blog
  • Webinar recording
  • Post-webinar quiz

6. I am in a completely “wrong” time zone for 10 AM/ET webinars. How can I “attend” (and/or get a certificate) the series?

If you are in a time zone that prevents you from attending the live webinars, please let us know and we, as an exception, will grant you access to webinar recordings as they become available. You will still need to pass all 5 quizzes before February 1, 2020 to qualify for the Level 2 Automation Certificate.


7. Is there a Level 2 Automation certificate exam?

Sort of. We set up a series of short quizzes to be completed after each webinar. Links to quizzes will be e-mailed to participants shortly after the live webinars. Participants can submit their answers until February 1, 2020.


8. Where can I find webinar quiz(zes)?

These will be emailed to all registered participants a few days after each live webinar.


9. What can I do to qualify for the Level 2 Automation Certificate of Completion?

At the end of the series you will be eligible for a Certificate of Completion. We will issue certificates of completion to those who attended at least three (3) live webinars, listened to the recording of the other two (2) webinars and passed follow-up quizzes with at least 60% of answers, per webinar, deemed correct by the course administrator. Certificates will be mailed in March 2020.


10. Can I retake a post-webinar quiz?

Sort of. If you get distracted the first time around, you will have a chance to retake any of the 5 quizzes (or all quizzes) after all live webinars have been completed on December 4, 2019. Please make sure you submit your answers before February 1, 2020.


11. My 30-day free Rapise trial is expiring, what do I do?

Please email Inflectra at marketing@inflectra.com to get an extension on your free trial. If you are a current Inflectra customer, please use your local Rapise instance to participate in this series.
