Successful test automation pays off greatly by enabling you to perform more testing, faster, and with increased precision. And the more you can automate the repetitive and tedious aspects of testing (what many refer to as “checking” rather than true testing), the more you can focus on the fun aspects of testing—the creative, analytical exploration testers thrive on.

Getting to that point does require an initial investment, though. Reaping the rewards of test automation requires familiarity with some core test automation principles, as well as a tool or framework that helps you put those principles into practice. But this doesn’t have to be a long, painful process. Many testers are pleasantly surprised by the ease of applying approaches like model-based test automation and AI-driven test automation with Tricentis Tosca.

To help you become a test automation pro, we’ve centralized the top resources that have enabled thousands of testers to get started with Tosca test automation, fast. This includes a certification program, video guides, and more!
