Performance testing is a type of testing intended to determine the responsiveness, throughput, reliability, and/or scalability of a system under a given workload. It is a generic term that can refer to many different types of performance-related testing (load, stress, endurance, etc.), each of which addresses a specific problem area and provides opportunities for improvement and to find out bottlenecks. There are several automated tools available to execute performance testing – JMeter is one of the most widely used tools to simulate the load generation. It is an open source software, designed to simulate a heavy load on a server, group of servers, network or object to test its strength or to analyze overall performance under different load types. With the increasing demands and requirements placed on the software products and projects, PtU aims to help pave the path to a global standard in performance testing and the JMeter area.
Certified Performance Tester with JMeter (CPTJM)
PtU is a practitioner level course for testers involved in performance testing. The course covers JMeter as a open source tool to generate load. This design-focused course provides an undiluted JMeter experience, focusing especially on the critical JMeter concepts. This enables a better real-life implementation of the newly acquired knowledge in the participants' daily work, such as: Record and Play, Correlation, Parameterization, Controller, ThinkTime, Assertions and Monitoring.
The PtU-CPTJM course contains some technical content that teaches JMeter load testing techniques and is appropriate for Software Testers, Test Engineers, Performance Testers, Performance Engineers, Test Leads, QA Manager, Operational Support.

I completed my Certified Performance Tester with JMeter Training and Certification from Performance Testing United (PtU) and Brightest. The training was very well organised by Verity. The training materials were provided beforehand. The training included a lot of practical materials providing an insight into a real work atmosphere. Verity software personnel were available throughout the training for resolving any issues. The trainer was very good and provided us with both theoretical and practical knowledge. The training material and trainer also helped in preparing and passing the certification exam with flying colors and thus building more confidence in oneself. This training helped learn a new tool and upgrading my skill and I achieved all this from home. Thank you PtU, Verity and Brightest for such a smooth learning experience in this pandemic situation.

First of all, I would like to thank the Verity Software team that organized the training so seemlessly during these challenging times. The JMeter training provided was awesome and covered a lot of ground involving performance testing concepts and the tool as well. The training made sure we are project ready. The certification questions during the exam covered all the topics very well. Overall, I’m very happy with my PtU experience!
