Please join us for a LIVE interactive 3-day virtual testing class with virtual hands-on! This course will include all the instructional topics from our in-person “Protection Testing” class wrapped into 18-hours of online training. Alongside protection theory, the instructor will show you how to use CMC with Test Universe software to create automated test plans to perform various tests. We will respond to written questions throughout the presentation and verbally address your questions with the instructor at the end of each session.
