This is more important for software applications at a time when software applications are used to perform many important functions in the day to day life. Even a minor error may end up in severe losses and a lot of panic. Hence, QA testing is important for all software applications.

At a time when software industry is thriving, QA testing has emerged as a promising profession. Unlike in the past there are many levels for QA testers to rise in the career. When there was only QA testers, now we have testers, test leaders, test managers, testing consultants etc. Thus QA testing has become a lucrative profession and many are getting attracted to this.

When the rush for QA testing training courses has increased, many QA testing training courses have been come up. Most of them are online training courses which allows working professionals and students pursuing some regular courses to learn the topic and make a career in QA testing.

As you are aware, most of the software testings have been automated and different test automation tools are being used for different types of QA testing. Any QA testing training course will cover all the major test automation tools in detail and all types of QA testings. Below given is the contents of course offered by most of the professional trainers
