Are there any certifications in Selenium?
Over the years, Selenium has become the automation testing tool of choice. Selenium 3.0 specially has made a significant impact and most of the competitors are pushed to distant 2nd position. As more and more professionals are moving to Selenium, the mute point is – are there any Selenium based certifications?
In this post, I am going to discuss two certifications, which are offered by Agile Testing Alliance and iSQI Germany.
