Selenium is an Open Source Tool for automating web browser/web application testing. Many organizations use proprietary tools from tools vendors that are integrated with Selenium so Selenium skills are very useful.

The A4Q Selenium Tester Foundation certification is based on a practical training course aimed at test professionals and anyone who wants to validate and demonstrate skills in using Selenium Test Driver in test automation.

This course is ideal for automators and those who want to learn automation using the Selenium WebDriver toolset. While this course is accessible to anyone wanting to acquire a basic, hands-on knowledge of Selenium, the main audiences are:

  • People with no test automation experience who are starting to automate in Selenium (or who want to get a job doing that)
  • People with some GUI test automation experience who are new to Selenium or starting to automate in Selenium (or who want to get a job doing that)
  • People with some non-GUI test automation experience who are new to Selenium and starting to automate in Selenium (or who want to get a job doing that)


  • Testers wishing to become test automation specialists.
  • Test automation specialists looking to learn Selenium
  • Agile testers


The business outcomes from the course are:

  • Correctly apply test automation principles to build maintainable test automation solution
  • Be able to choose and implement correct test automation tools
  • Be able to implement Selenium WebDriver scripts that execute functional web application tests
  • Be able to implement maintainable scripts


Although it is beneficial for attendees to have a coding background (ideally in Python), this is not essential.

Code examples are provided during the course and are available in the training delivery environment for attendees less experienced in Python to access.
