Free Software Testing Programmes

Here is a collection of free software testing programmes that I am aware of.

Please note that by “free” I mean there is no upfront cost to enroll, but for some of them, you may have need to work at their company for a specified period of time or pay a fee if you leave too early.

A software testing programme, is where you can learn to become a software tester as part of a structured programme. Self-study would not count. If you are looking for a list of useful resources for self study, check out my book Starting Your Software Testing Career.

Also note that these organisations/companies might not be enrolling people at this point in time, feel free to reach out to them to see when enrollments open.

I’ll do my best to keep this updated but I take no responsibility for the accuracy of this information.
