The Full-Stack Test Architect course is suitable for IT professionals who wish to develop an expert skillset of modern test automation. It includes techniques and methodologies covering every project stage and technology stack for Java applications.

Current Test Certifications focus on Manual Testing, with no consideration given to the technical side. This leads to the anti-pattern of large amounts of manual testing and little to no Automated, API, Integration or Unit Tests.

The Full-Stack Test Architect course is designed to address this, introducing attendees to the full stack of software testing from Unit Testing all the way up to GUI Automation. Attendees will learn how to build BDD, Test Automation and Continuous Integration frameworks with industry-leading tools.

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 their BDD, Test Automation and Continuous Integration skills and grow them further with additional exercises and support provided by Safebear.


Who is it for?

Technical Test Analysts, Developers and DevOps.

Key Points

  1. Behaviour Driven Development (BDD) with Cucumber and Gherkin

  2. Test Driven Development (TDD) for Unit Testing and Integration Testing

  3. API testing

  4. Test Automation with Selenium

  5. Continuous Integration (CI)

All in one hands-on course.


What prior knowledge/skills do I need?

You must know Java or Object-Oriented Programming. See this blog post for more information about the course requirements.


What tools will I use?

As a course attendee, you will build a technical test stack for a Java project using the tools listed below.

Project Development and Code Control

  • IntelliJ

  • Maven

  • Gradle

  • Git

Behaviour Driven Development (BDD):

  • Cucumber

  • JVM, JUnit and Java

  • Gherkin

Test Automation

Why have we chosen these tools?

We have selected the key tools in the marketplace that are highly-demanded and essential to any Java software house. 

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


What about Security and Load testing?

The tools listed on this course are essential to most Java projects, however not all projects need Security or Load testing. To acquire these skills, we will be developing additional Security and Load Test Architect modules in the near future.


What will I learn?

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

  1. Best Practices with Project Development and Code Control

  2. Behaviour Driven Development

  3. Test Automation

    1. Static Analysis

    2. Unit Testing

    3. Integration Testing

    4. API Testing

    5. GUI Testing

  4. Continuous Integration

What is the Practical Exam?

In order to gain the certification, attendees will be required to build a full-stack test suite around a Java application on the final day, using the skills they've gained on the course, in addition to a multiple-choice exam. 


That Sounds Pretty Hard!

The course is intensive, and attendees will be given homework to complete each night of the course to practice ahead of the exam. The majority of attendees find it a rewarding experience that helps them and their company when they return to their workplace. 


What will I leave with?

In addition to a certification if you pass, you will leave with:

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

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

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