About the Developing with SpecFlow Course

The course consists of 3 days, with different agendas on each day that cater to different target audiences. Attendees can choose which days to attend, with most attendees only attending those days that cater to their interests. For a more complete breakdown of the material covered each day and the intended audience, refer to the course agenda. The course is designed for classes of between 3-20 with a range of exercises that need to be completed in pairs or groups of three.

Accreditation

Before you can become an accredited SpecFlow trainer, you will need to participate in a 2-3 hour preliminary session, which can be held remotely. You will also need to attend all three days of the course at one of TechTalk’s training sessions, as well a train-the-trainer session on a fourth day exclusively for future trainers. This session allows you to discuss the course and ask any questions you may have, as well as share any feedback. The session also allows TechTalk to assess your suitability for holding the course.

A list of currently scheduled training courses can be found here. You will need to pay the full course price plus an additional attendance fee of EUR 1,200 for the train-the-trainer session on the fourth day. This additional fee for the fourth day will however be waived if three or more candidates from your company are attending all four days.

Course Material Licensing Fees

TechTalk charges a small license fee per attendee per day for the use of the course material and to cover the costs of issuing certificates for each attendee.

Course Fees and Organisation

Organising the course and venue is up to you, as is the attendance fee you charge participants. TechTalk will announce your course on the official SpecFlow website and can provide you with basic marketing material, but the remaining organisation is your responsibility.

Other Languages

TechTalk currently only offers courses in English, and all course material is only available in English. You can hold the course in any language you are comfortable with, but TechTalk cannot provide you with the course material in other languages. If you require the course material in another language, you will need to arrange for it to be translated professionally.
