Why You Should Take This Course

Web services and APIs have exploded in popularity over the past few years. More companies are adopting architectures such as:

  • Software as a service
  • Web service architecture
  • Microservice architecture


These approaches present new opportunities and problems for teams to solve. To help them solve these challenges, teams are looking for testers who can help with:

  • Testing features that lack a User interface
  • Working with platforms of interconnected web services
  • Building automated tests that integrate with APIs and web services
  • Conduct exploratory testing against web services and APIs


‘Testing web services and APIs’ offers you the opportunity to learn about Web services / APIs and how to test them. You will be shown how to build HTTP requests to query and create data in web services. These skills will then be put to use to explore, plan and create both automated and exploratory tests. There will also be hands-on time to learn about popular API testing tools such as Postman and web proxies to help you in your testing activities.


The course itself is highly interactive. You will take part in exercises that offer a hands-on approach to learning the tools and ideas required to be successful in your testing. By the end of the course, you will have tested live APIs, searched for bugs and build automated tests to give you a real taste of Web service and API testing.
