Can I really learn all this in 2 days?

Yes. You will be surprised at how much you will take on. Our trainers are experts at demystifying complicated technologies and concepts. We also have a unique way of answering questions that is fast and memorable!

However, as with any course, you will only really understand it when you put it into practice in a real-world environment. We know the framework you build and the course materials you take with you will stand you in good stead when you return to the office.

Please be aware that the day is intensive as well as fun, so no late nights the day before. And we start at 9:30am on the dot. 


How competent will I be after the course?

You'll leave with a framework that you've built and can understand so you can instantly start automating tests back at the office. In order to continue the learning process after the course and master some advanced coding concepts, SafeBear also provide Additional Materials to make it easy for you to practice at home.
