what is selenium and what can you learn in the training?

Selenium is a suite of different tools meant for browser automation, including Selenium WebDriver and Selenium Grid. Although not limited to be used for testing web applications, it has become the most sought-after tool by software testers. With support for all of the widely used browsers, it has also grown beyond just being another software testing library. It is the backbone of countless browser automation tools, APIs and frameworks. The WebDriver interface introduced by Selenium WebDriver is under review for becoming a W3C standard, which would further increase its importance in the space of test automation.

About the course

SeU - Certified Selenium Engineer (CSE) is a practitioner level course for testers involved in web test automation. The course covers Selenium as a browser automation library from the ground up and includes coverage of advanced concepts such as page object design, custom implementation of listeners etc. Test automation constructs and design are kept to a minimum to better focus on code constructs that enable usage of Selenium in a properly designed manner. This course, together with future test automation design-focused courses from Selenium United, provides testing practitioners everything that is required to become successful test automation engineers in the web test automation space.

content & syllabus

SeU - Certified Selenium Engineer (CSE) offers its participants the un-diluted Selenium experience. Other similar courses tend to cover non-Selenium topics such as TestNG, Reporting, CI, Cucumber etc, which tends to bulk up the course, but alter the focus on key features of Selenium that are crucial in practice. This is why SeU - Certified Selenium Engineer (CSE) allows the participants to focus more on the critical Selenium concepts, so they better understand how to implement Selenium into their daily work.

Another important differentiator is that Selenium United believes in the importance of practical training, which is why over 70% of the course consists of hands-on exercises, which allows participants to also gain experience and implement as they learn.

SeU - Certified Selenium Engineer (CSE) is a hands-on course that deals with the Selenium concepts in a very practical way (30% theory, 70% practical)

  • This course is a comprehensive certification aimed at anyone involved in developing and implementing automated web app automation using Selenium
  • This course also provides full coverage of web test automation using Selenium, including all relevant techniques and terminology from the most basic to the most advanced concepts
  • SeU - Certified Selenium Engineer (CSE) is a 3-day course, followed by a 60-minute certification exam at the end of the last day.

target group

If you are a tester mainly focused on manual testing and want to step into the world of test automation, this course is for you.

If you are a test automation engineer who has just started with Selenium or you have done test automation with other tools, and now want to explore Selenium, this course is for you.

If you are an engineer with an intermediate level of Selenium knowledge, and require some support on how the Selenium components best fit together for professional Selenium-based automation, this course is also for you.



  • Basic knowledge of Eclipse is recommended
  • Basic knowledge of core Java is mandatory


Java Knowledge Prerequisites

The facilitator of the workshop will briefly cover relevant Java concepts as they are used in the course. Please note that Java concepts cannot be fully explained within this 3-day course. An extra day may be required if these prerequisites aren’t met by the candidates.

Participants who are well versed with the following concepts would be able to focus on the Selenium concepts in a much better manner, without diluting their attention to understand Java constructs.

No direct core Java questions would be included in the exam.

  • Concept of main() method
  • Compiling and running Java code
  • Primitive data types
  • Classes counterparts of primitive data types (e.g. Integer for int)
  • Arrays
  • Basic collections: List, Map
  • String formatting and manipulation
  • System.out and System.err
  • Conditional control structures: if/else/else if, switch
  • Looping Control structures: for (the 2 styles), while
  • Exception Handling – throw, throws, try-catch-finally, Exception hierarchy
  • Writing a Class with getter, setter and other methods
  • Constructors and Class instantiation
  • Class variables vs object variables
  • Access modifiers – public, private, protected
