Supercharge Your Career in Software Testing with Our API Testing and Automation Course!
Are you ready to elevate your software testing career by exploring the dynamic field of API testing? Look no further! Enroll in our intensive, 5-day, hands-on course, guided by experienced, certified professionals, and take your skill set to the next level.


In today's interconnected, digital landscape, APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) are the backbone of modern software development, enabling different systems to communicate and work together seamlessly. Ensuring the reliability and performance of these APIs is critical for any successful software project. Our API Testing and Automation course is designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to effectively test APIs, ensuring they meet high standards of functionality and performance.

Course Focus

  • This course begins with the basics of APIs; their role in modern software development, and the fundamentals of API testing, including types of tests and how to ensure API reliability and performance.
     

  • Master the essential Create, Read, Update, and Delete (CRUD) operations for interacting with APIs, and learn practical implementation techniques using various tools.
     

  • Gain practical experience with Postman (a leading API testing tool); including the creation and validation of requests, exploring advanced features like scripting and automating tests.
     

  • Discover Newman; the CLI for running Postman collections, and learn how to automate API tests, integrate with CI/CD pipelines, and generate test reports.
     

  • Understand Data-Driven Testing principles, and implement DDT as part of the API-testing framework, to ensure comprehensive coverage and accuracy using Postman and Newman.
     

  • Learn the basics of API monitoring; set up monitoring tools and implement proactive maintenance techniques to maintain API health and performance.
     

  • Explore the importance of performance testing for APIs, learn various testing tools and techniques, and analyze results to optimize API performance.
