UFT One (Formerly QTP)

Microfocus’s UFT is one of the most popular, long-established automated functional testing tools on the market. It provides a point & click interface for developing automated tests across a wide range of technologies; Desktop, Web, Mobile, Terminal Emulation. It has close integration into the other ADM tools such as ALM.NET and Octane.

Complete UFT One

This comprehensive course covers all the essential principles of using Unified Functional Testing (UFT). Designed for beginners as well as testers with previous automation experience, it takes the newcomer to UFT from the basic techniques of record and replay in the keyword view, right through to advanced programming skills in the expert view. Throughout the course practical examples are demonstrated, and the delegates get to practice what they have learned in each chapter against windows and web applications.

Please note that this is a compact course covering both our introduction and advanced courses in a short timeframe. If you wish to have a more relaxed pace, then we would recommend doing the Intro and Advanced courses separately.

Course Delivery

This course is available as an on-site, or on-line course. Our online training is live, instructor-led in our ‘virtual classroom’. All of our delegates receive comprehensive workbooks for the course. The Complete UFT online is over 5 days, with each day approximately 3.5 hours online.
