Overview

In just 2 days, you'll learn how to run web and load tests in Microsoft Visual Studio.

Get immersed in your Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 - Web & Load course. You’ll get an introduction to performance testing, Microsoft Test Manager (MTM) features, and learn how to:

  • Record, edit, run and maintain web tests
  • Create and run load tests
  • Interpret load test results

Learn through Firebrand’s Lecture | Lab | Review methodology on this course. You’ll be introduced to advanced web testing techniques, like:

  • Refactoring web tests
  • Standard and custom extraction and validation rules
  • Transactions
  • Data driving using Excel/XML data sources

This course is ideal for users of Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) who create scripts to load test their web applications.

QA Engineers, performance engineers and performance testers will also benefit from this accelerated course.

Six reasons why you should sit your Web & Load course with Firebrand Training

  1. You'll be Web & Load certified in just 2 days.
  2. Our Web & Load course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. You’ll learn more Web & Load. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  4. You’ll learn Web & Load faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  5. You’ll be studying Web & Load with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 104,403 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
  6. You'll do more than study Web & Load courseware. We use practical exercises to make sure you can apply your new knowledge to the work environment. Our instructors use demonstrations and real-world experience to keep the day interesting and engaging

"A new course from Microsoft that was delivered by an experienced trainer who really knew the topic in-depth."
Paul Wilson. (3/5/2021 (Monday) to 5/5/2021 (Wednesday))

"Thank you for the course, I appreciate I was part of the 1st group of users to ever for this new SC-300 course. All materials were new, labs etc newly setup and i understand there was either limited details or unclear information, however the trainer leading the course was entirely honest and provided alot more information, demo and experience to the course. Highly recommend attending course led by trainer as not only reading text book paragraphes and slides to understand the concepts, instructor led will provide live demos and own experience in live environments."
W.C.. (3/5/2021 (Monday) to 5/5/2021 (Wednesday))

"Training was very interactive and easily followed, happy to answer any questions"
