HP to Groom Quality Software Testers

Date:   Wednesday , April 01, 2009

In a bid to fill the gap between education and employability and help the graduates to become well-trained software testing professionals, the testing major Hewlett-Packard (HP) has launched HP Software University (HPSU) in partnership with Indian Institute of Hardware Technology (IIHT).

The program will offer students accredited training on HP software and a curriculum path surrounding various testing software from HP, like Quick Test professional and LoadRunner. Certified professionals would gain access to special HP software online resources that provide the latest in software news, product information, job openings, and more.

"As applications become more complex testing is going to be the need of the hour, while the sector, which is growing at about 45 percent annually faces shortages of trained testers," says Neelam Dhawan, Managing Director, HP India.
