Course Code



21 hours (usually 3 days including breaks)


  • Knowledge of web APIs such as REST or SOAP.
  • Software testing experience.


  • QA engineers
  • Testers and test developers involved in testing software and web service APIs


SoapUI is the most widely-used open source API testing tool for SOAP and REST APIs. It offers SOAP Web Services functional testing, REST API functional testing, WSDL coverage, message assertion testing and test refactoring.

In this instructor-led, live training, participants learn how to test web services using SoapAPI. We discuss how API testing can resolve some of the shortcomings of UI and unit based testing. The training includes practice sessions and an API test suite development project.

By the end of the training, participants will have a firm idea of when to implement API testing, how to explore and access APIs, how to carry out different types of testing on both SOAP and REST based APIs, and how to bring their work together into an integrated, automated test suite.

Format of the Course

  • An instructor-led course that includes an introduction to API testing, its tools and processes, and a hands-on SoapUI based test suite development project.
