Certified Selenium Tester Foundation


Selenium is an Open Source Tool for automating web browser/web application testing. Many organisations use proprietary tools from tools vendors that are integrated with Selenium so Selenium skills are very useful.

The A4Q Selenium Tester Foundation certification is based on a practical training course aimed at test professionals who desire an understanding of how to design, implement and maintain automated solutions using Selenium WebDriver.

How do I obtain the A4Q Selenium Tester Foundation certification?

To be certified you must pass the A4Q Selenium Tester Foundation certification exam. We recommend that you attend a training course with an accredited A4Q Selenium Tester Foundation course training provider; participants will have relevant content and topics clearly explained and taught to them with a high level of hands on practical learning. For those wishing to self-study and apply for direct entry to the exam please refer to the syllabus. The detailed syllabus covers factors to consider when deciding to automate testing as well as specific techniques for navigation, interacting with GUI elements, logging, reporting, and more.

What are the entry requirements?

Candidates should have a general knowledge of basic programming and some knowledge of Python.
