Certified SDET Foundation


Manual testing remains relevant since the inception of software development life cycle, however, the recent change in market demands faster deliveries with excellent quality. Today, the industry is awakened to the fact that testing is actually more important than programming, and testing applications require a bigger budget for tools and resources compared to programming.

Organizations are continuously adopting new ways to reduce delivery cost and it demands professionals in engineering roles like SDET (Software Development Engineer in Test). Today, every organization is hunting for the best possible talent available. Earlier software developers used to write code and testers checked it for quality. This is not sufficient today. Software Development Engineer in Test (SDETs) are skilled professionals who are adept in the area of QA Engineering as well as of Software Development.

SDET engineers are high in demand, as most of the organization are moving towards engineering culture. If you want to put yourself in a better place of cutting-edge digital automation world, Certified SDET Foundation course will certainly help you

In this course, you will learn Core Java, IDE Features, Selenium Webdriver, Selenium Basic and Advanced concepts, ATDD, Apache Maven, TestNG, JUnit, Cucumber, Test Reports and Code Coverage Tools. After completion of this course, you will understand the major technology trends which are driving the software automation industry.

SDET stands for Software Development Engineer in Test.

SDET is highly skilled resource with development as well as testing skills, on the other hand tester is involved in preparing and executing the test cases either manually or by automation. Moreover Testers are resources with limited programming skills and they are much focused on functional testing (black box testing) whereas SDETs are skilled resources with good programming skills and do the job of tester (white box testing) as well as developer in test automation. SDET can participate in test automation tool development and may make it for generic use. Testers are not expected to develop test automation tools, they may use these test automation tool to perform the testing required for their software application or project.

SDET tests and critiques software components and interfaces in more technical depth, writes test programs to assure quality, and develops test tools to increase effectiveness whereas an Automation Engineer normally uses tools for doing functional testing which do not require any technical knowledge.

To become a successful SDET, one should be involved in both the development of application as well as in testing of the software developed. SDET plays an important role in both the Software Development Life Cycle as well as Test Life Cycle. SDET engineer plans, designs, develops, optimizes as well as test the code using automation. SDET can think about the probabilities the application code can fail and design his test framework accordingly to ensure robustness of the product. SDET needs to understand the complete flow of the code about how it interacts with all other components and can write his own code for creating speciality test tools for automation. To become a successful SDET, one should possess excellent debugging skills in order to find out the reasons behind the failure of test cases, inefficient code, memory leakages etc., in order to improve the quality of the code. SDET should be able to create a report of all his testing activities which will help in tracking all the task.

SDET is a mix of developer as well as tester who has exposure to project management, interacts and understands end user software requirements, knows product or domain knowledge, participates in product or software designing, knows how to code and build test automation tools. Roles and Responsibilities of SDET includes the following:- Participating in Design and Architectural discussion – Capability of building, deploying and managing own environment and test automation framework – Developing automation code for the application and maintaining the same – Ensuring maximum unit test code coverage – Able to build different test scenarios and acceptance tests – Write the automation code for himself and should have excellent debugging skills

In prior days, the software engineer used to write the code and the tester was compelled to test it for quality. Today companies are searching for an expert who can partake in software development. We are just shifting from a pure manual testing to a more technical reality of testing a product. SDET is a software tester with expertise on writing code. SDET isn’t only a test professional with advanced level programming skills, yet a professional who can create testing frameworks and tools to help the manual testing process. So the companies are hiring SDET who can work for designing the testing system or high-performance code. SDETs, with their dual capacities in the domain of performing tests and also the code development are an incredible fit in today’s’ advanced age. They help to enhance the Code Quality by performing strict and complete source code inspections alongside checking for the Testability of the code.

The industry today has awakened to the fact that testing is actually more important than programming. Testing apps requires a bigger budget for tools and resources compared to programming. Every organization today is hunting for the best possible talent. Earlier software developers used to write code and testers checked it for quality. This won’t suffice today. Software Development Engineer in Test (SDETs) are skilled professionals who are adept in the arena of both QA Engineering and Software Development.

Refund/Money back does not apply in any other condition, except the batch is cancelled by DevLabs Alliance due to instructor unavailability insufficient enrollments, or forced measures(like floods, earthquakes, national/global pandemic, political instability, etc.). However, the learner can choose to join another batch of the same training/course after discussing with DevLabs Alliance management.

For refund conditions, please refer to the “Refund” section below.

For Classroom Training

We may need to postpone/cancel an event because of many reasons, such as insufficient enrollments, instructor unavailability, or force majeure events (like floods, earthquakes, political instability, etc). For refund conditions, please refer to the “Refund” section below.

For Refund(applicable for IVLT and Classroom training)

If we cancel an event, 100 percent of training/course fees will be refunded to the learner.

If a cancellation is done by an attendee, 7 days (or more) before the batch begins, a total of 10% of the total paid fee will be deducted and the remaining amount will be refunded to the learner.

If a cancellation is done by a learner within 7 days (or less) of the start of the batch or after attending a maximum of 2 classes, 25% of the total paid fee will be deducted and the remaining amount will be refunded to the learner.

Refund requests can be initiated by sending emails to the DevLabs Alliance team at training@devlabsalliance.com or accounts@devlabsalliance.com. Refund request usually takes 3-4 working days to get approved by Finance and then 10-15 working days to get the payment back into the source account of the learner.
