Course Description

This core course (Mercury Load Runner training) is designed for test engineers who want to learn software performance testing includes concepts, strategies, tactics, techniques, and automation frameworks. Our training courses not only give the students a thorough knowledge of LoadRunner but also, and perhaps more importantly, the very best grounding in performance testing techniques. The testing process is presented both through theory and hands-on exercises followed by a project.
