Selenium WebDriver C#

Special Notice

Please note that from November the Selenium WebDriver C# course will be 3 days, not 2. This is to bring it in line with the WebDriver Java course, where we will cover more advanced topics on day 3. This is currently in development and the new syllabi will be available once finalised.

This introductory course covers all the essential principles of using the Selenium WebDriver automation framework in Microsoft Visual Studio.

Designed for beginners as well as testers with previous automation experience, it takes the new-comer to Selenium through all the basic techniques of writing effective automated web tests.


Throughout the course practical examples are demonstrated, and the delegates get to practice what they have learned in each chapter against a Web training application.

Key Technologies used

  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2015, Nunit 3, WebDriver 3

Target Audience

The introductory course that takes you from beginner through to writing effective automated tests in Selenium WebDriver .NET

Recommended for anyone new to Selenium
