Performance Testing with JMeter and Blazemeter

English → Certification on Performance Testing with JMeter and Blazemeter


Description

In this course you'll learn how to be a performance testing rockstar! That's because the experts and PhDs behind Abstracta and BlazeMeter have partnered to share with you the best practices of performance testing.

The course is divided into 4 one-week long modules which should take you 5-10 hours to complete. Each week, you will be given different practical exercises using the tools that you submit to be reviewed by the instructors who give you feedback within a couple of days. This helps you to solidify and validate what you have learned. Students have up to two months to finish the course.

Upon completion, you will receive a certification from Abstracta and BlazeMeter to display on your Linkedin and add to your resume.

Our students form a community of testers who can exchange information and ask each other as well as the instructors questions via Slack.

Not only do we help you learn the tools, but we also believe in guiding testers and providing the mentoring necessary for them to have successful careers! We form lasting relationships with our students and do everything we can to assist them in their journeys throughout the world of software QA.
