Introduction to Selenium

What did you like the most about the training?:

Mr., Joy (the trainer) listened to our needs and accommodated us to help us to get familiar with the material and to be able to use the material for our needs. Mr. Joy is very knowledgeable of the material and was able to answer any and all questions we had.

Overall I feel like the training material and instructor was presented very well. I can start using Selenium on my mine with minimal help or support.

Introduction to Selenium

Donald (the trainer) was great. He adapted to our training needs.

The last part where we could use selenium IDE with our own applications so the examples were focused on our actual applications we use at TWIA.
