Start Time : 10:00 am (Indian Standard Time)


Please join us for a LIVE  interactive 3-day certified virtual class! This course will include all the instructional topics from our in-person “Protection Testing” class wrapped into 15 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.
