As a new Provar customer, onboarding of new users can often be a challenge. Leaders may worry that their teams will be resistant to change, have trouble with team adoption of new tech, or have concerns about the time it takes team members to learn new solutions.
Luckily, new Provar customers and trial users have access to the University of Provar — a free, interactive platform of courses, certifications, and resources. Launched in 2021 to educate, empower, and elevate users through continued education and training, the content library nicknamed UP is a vital resource for team leaders onboarding or up-leveling their teams.
“The University of Provar was originally created for customers,” says Jenn Torres, Education Manager at Provar. “We wanted to provide content for our customers that would allow them to use our products effectively and with confidence. We also wanted to provide education around the testing space as a whole.
“Shortly after making the University of Provar content available to our customers, we began receiving requests from professionals who were looking to make a career change and wanted to upskill,” Torres said. “It was then that we made our courses available to everyone.”
Courses for Team Members of All Skill Levels
Provar offers solutions that improve quality and transform the testing experience across the Salesforce ecosystem and beyond. With nearly 40 interactive courses for users of all learning levels, University of Provar courses help teams quickly up-level their Salesforce test automation skills — regardless of their training or experience.
“The University of Provar provides engaging, interactive courses that walk our users through the basics of our products, so they can get started with Provar’s solutions right away,” said Torres. “UP doesn’t just offer courses specific to Provar products — we also offer content for anyone who may be brand new to testing, along with a variety of courses to take users through the quality journey. We have something for everyone at all levels of experience.”
Start Where You Are with University of Provar
University of Provar users have access to nearly 40(and growing!) certification and course tracks, covering Provar Automation and Provar Manager, as well as topics that cover all stages of the quality journey.
“We recommend our learners begin with our Provar Essentials certification when becoming familiar with Provar,” Torres continued. “Provar customers have the added benefit of earning their Provar Advanced certification as well.”
For users with less testing experience, or who find the concepts of Provar Essentials confusing or overwhelming, additional options are available.
“Your Quality Journey series is a great place to start,” said Torres. “The Quality Journey is made up of Intro to Testing, Testing in Salesforce, and Testing Types. These courses provide a great foundation for someone new to testing.”
Additionally, University of Provar has paired with the Salesforce Trailhead team to create the Explore Software Testing trail. These modules, including Software Testing Fundamentals, Testing Types and the Agile Testing Quadrants, and the soon-to-be-released Testing Salesforce, are designed to help students learn the fundamentals of software testing and the various approaches to quality assurance, and are recommended as part of team onboarding.
Instant Access to Interactive Curriculum for Teams
New Provar customers, as well as Provar trial users, have full access to University of Provar content, empowering them to up-level their Salesforce test automation skills. Created by the Provar education team, University of Provar course content includes an engaging mix of videos, articles and quizzes — making learning new skills accessible for everyone.
