Great course!


This is very good course for QA people who does not have any programming experience and willing to start with java/selenium/automation.

It gives you flexibility to communicate with developers in one language, not only explaining the functional part but operate technical terms.

Of course in order to make good progress it require some self learning time but if something is not clear you can always ask teacher via email and get answer quite quick.

I got a lot from those lessons and i will definitely will recommend it for my friends.


The way you present the course is great.

Being a manual tester, I always said No to automation for reasons like now who will write the code after so many years, my worried-ness after seeing the code.

I am confident now that I will get fruitful results from your course and under your guidance.

I appreciate it and feeling good to be part of your class.

From the first lesson I was sure that this was right choice.

Alex is very organized, on time and has the right pace even if things seam to be a little bit easy at the beginning.

He knows when he will speed up and he always asks if everyone is following his pace.

Willing to answer every question even if it has been answered in the course. Willing to stay for more time if someone needs more help.

At the end of every course there is conversation with the attendees about what was presented by Alex and after a day or two he sends an email with relevant exercises.

At this time two more lessons are left for me to complete the 8 courses of this Automation Testing learning experience with Alex.

I am very happy that I have chosen it.

I suggest to everyone that wants to extend his knowledge in Automation Testing to attend these courses.

Very good course.

I had found all needed information to start test automation with Selenium.

You had delivered all ideas and thoughts clearly and in concise manner.

Great job, Alex.

Thank you very much.

I liked the pace of the course, once a week on Sunday was perfect for me.

I would love to continue learning test automation with you in future.

I felt the course was completed very quick, didn’t felt it took 12 – 13 weeks at all.

The classes are excellent and the instructor very helpful. I recommend the course to anyone interested in learning test automation.
