Learn JMeter for Free - Launching the JMeter Academy

BlazeMeter has always contributed greatly to the JMeter community and today I’m happy to  share that we’ve launched a one-of-its-kind free online academy. The JMeter Academy will teach you everything you need to know about Apache JMeter™, from a user friendly one-stop portal.


While there are many resources you can learn JMeter from, they are often uncoordinated. The JMeter Academy offers a clear learning plan, taking you from A to Z. The academy courses include videos, demos, lab guides, and a test, ensuring you understand how JMeter works and how to use it.

Targeted at beginner-level testers, the course covers the following topics:
