SmartBear Live Classes

We hold 30-minute or 1-hour live classes on a regular basis (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly) for five SmartBear products: TestComplete, ReadyAPI, SwaggerHub, Zephyr Scale, and Zephyr Squad. Going to our live classes is a great way to become aware of the powerful features a product offers, get answers to your questions live, and create your first working project right after the class.

SmartBear On-Demand Courses

In the Academy there are 33 different courses available, varied enough so that they’re sure to match your current needs. Most of the courses are 30-40 minutes length, and you can watch the lessons when you have the time. The system carefully tracks your progress and lets you know which lessons you still need to watch.

As mentioned earlier, in 2021 we released 17 totally new courses for six SmartBear products. Here are the most popular courses, in case you’re interested:
