Selenium Syllabus

No Valid Certification for Selenium.

I think ‘Selenium Certification is not worthy’ since it is open-source software and no official announcement from ‘Selenium Developer Comunity’.

In Selenium job requirements (, etc, ), we can’t find that companies are asking for Selenium Certification.

Some Training institutions are offering Selenium Certification with their self-defined syllabus (not universal syllabus), and these programs are not having any recognization.

Selenium Developers community (official website is: is not referring to any Selenium certification.

Selenium is not an all-inclusive test tool, it requires some third-party plugins and frameworks in order to broaden the scope of testing, Role of Programming, Testing Framework, etc, are important in Selenium Testing.
