Our Cypress Training Courses

Cypress Essentials

Designed for newcomers to Cypress, our course covers everything you need to know to become proficient at writing test cases in Cypress.

The course is online, live, instructor-led, and incorporates a comprehensive e-workbook for the course. In between each online session we give you practical exercises for you to have a go at. The sessions are recorded, so you can review them later, and we also provide resources through GitHub projects.

Cypress Advanced

We also provide a follow-on Advanced course for those wishing to expand their knowledge.

This covers ideas such as using JavaScript in your Tests, how to handle the Async nature of JavaScript, looping through Web Elements, C.I. integration, using GitHub Actions, utilising the Page Object Model in Cypress, Data-Driven Testing and many other topics.

Designed for those that have either sat our Cypress Essentials course or those who have used Cypress for a while and wish to expand their skills with the tool.

Course Delivery and Duration

Both the basic and advanced courses are delivered online, instructor-led (VILT) over 4 days, with each day being approximately 3.5 hours training. They can also be delivered on-site, classroom-based and this is over 3 full days.

None for the Essentials course, we do have an optional JavaScript primer chapter if you are new to JavaScript. We can also email you the setup instructions before the course so you can setup Cypress in readiness.
