Fundamentals of Performance Testing — A 2 day course

contact usEnquire about this course


Performance testing is a critical part of mitigating the risk of implementing an IT system, yet the number of testers who can effectively carry out this vital role is low. Out of those performance testers who have received training, most have only been instructed in how to use a particular tool, rather than how to carry out performance testing effectively. It can take years of trial and error to learn how performance testing should be done. Businesses need to be certain that performance testing is carried out effectively, in a way that minimises cost, as well as protecting their service level agreements (SLAs).

This course will extend beyond the simple use of a tool to look at the nature of performance testing, the challenges surrounding performance testing and how to overcome these challenges to make the performance testing more effective. This course will focus on what performance testing really is, how it should be carried out and how it should be managed.
