Automation Implementation Training
I am looking for non-biased implementation training for automation tools. I have not had much luck. I have gotten in with Rational but find their push for RUP to be out of line with what I want....
any comments/ideas would be appreciated. Location unimportant.

Re: Automation Implementation Training
I suggest looking up whitepapers by Brett Pettichord, Steve Splaine, Ed Kitt, and Linda Hayes for implementation methods for automation on a project. Also the books "Automated Software Testing" by Elfried Dustin et al., and "Software Test Automation" by Mark Fewster & Dorothy Graham are great references (both books are a bit long for some people).
Hans Bulwalda's material is great also, he talks about "Keyword" or "Action Word" driven systems. That is a bit out of range for first time implementors though if your doing the work, if you have someone come in who knows the methodology and can implement the framework then your okay.
There are really no un-biased classes out there, especially from the tool vendors. What you may want to do is look at classes from SQE & IIST.
Hope this helps. At least you can find a class, when I started doing this 16 years ago there were really not any classes on automation (on the PC that is). I had to learn the hard way.
