Which Language Should I Choose?

To help you decide which programming language is best for you, we’ve written the following blog post:

Choosing a Test Automation Language

If you’re still not sure, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Who is it for?

Test Analysts, Developers and DevOps. No prior knowledge is needed, an introduction to object-oriented programming and code samples will be part of the course.


Key Points

  1. Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming

  2. Behaviour Driven Development (BDD)

  3. Code Control

  4. Test Automation with Selenium

  5. API Testing

  6. Continuous Integration (CI)

All in one hands-on course.





The Manual to Automation Tester training course is designed to transform any manual tester into a complete technical tester with all of the most desirable skills on the market and the ability to instantly add value to any company. No prior knowledge is needed, attendees will learn how to build BDD, Test Automation and API test frameworks, and add it all to continuous integration with industry-leading tools.

Learn the right way to implement automation, BDD and CI to really revolutionise your role. Make project testing joyful, inclusive and easy.

In addition to the hands-on practical training labs, attendees will be able to download their project test framework when they return to the office, allowing them to practice with additional exercises and support provided by Safebear.



Generally, you will choose the language that your application is being developed in (e.g. if your application is written in Java, choose the Java course, and so on), so your framework can sit alongside application development.

However if your application uses Angular for its front-end development we recommend the JavaScript course which covers Protractor.


What tools will I use?

We have selected the key tools in the marketplace that are highly-demanded and essential to any IT project. 

The course is aimed at ambitious attendees who want to develop an expert skillset of modern tools and techniques.


What will I learn?

Attendees on the course will build a test stack around a web application throughout a typical project lifecycle. The course will guide attendees through the tools and technical aspects of the following techniques:

Test Automation
  1. Best Practices with Project Development and Code Control

  2. Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming

  3. Behaviour Driven Development

  4. API Testing

  5. Test Automation with Selenium

  6. Continuous Integration

Is it OK that I have no technical experience?

Yes. The course is intensive, however the majority of attendees find it a rewarding experience that helps them and their company when they return to their workplace. 

Companies are on the look out for trained Technical Testers and we partner with recruitment agencies who will support your search for your dream job.


What will I leave with?

You will leave with:

  • Access to a cloud-based repository containing the test frameworks and project you built during the course.

  • A copy of all the course materials to practice at home on your environment.

  • A network of contacts to help when you most need it.

  • Support from partner recruitment agencies, if needed.
