September brought exciting news for the SmartBear Academy, our great free learning portal. We released two new courses for TestComplete:

     - Testing SAP Applications with TestComplete

In this course, you'll learn about the features of TestComplete that assist with the automation of SAP GUI desktop applications. Also, you'll learn to standardize automation practice. This course is extremely useful for anyone looking to automate SAP apps.

     - Automate Manual Testing with TestComplete

This course is for manual testers who are moving towards automation. It explains which TestComplete features will assist in this transition. It also showcases how to record a functional test without a single line of code, view the results, and edit the test. This course has a knowledge assessment module at the end – pass the exam and get a course completion certificate!


The collection of TestComplete learning courses in the SmartBear Academy keeps growing. Check out the full list of free TestComplete courses and enroll today!
