Manual/documentation for Mercury's TestDirector - Where to get Soft Copy?

Manual/documentation for Mercury's TestDirector

TestDirector is part of a suite of products for testing computer software (quality assurance). It's major functional areas included requirements management, test management, and defect management.

I work as freelance Quality Assurance analyst and have never used this product.  Thus I am not eligible for many positions that call for experience with it.

I would like to obtain a soft copy of the documentation for TestDirector so that I can read and learn the product.  Thereafter, the plan would be to use this fact as a "..foot in the door.." to at least get employers to consider me for positions that call for TestDirector experience.  Otherwise it is Catch-22 – no knowledge and no way to get it, further compounded by no experience and no way to get it.  I know that there are courses but they are quite expensive and even if I took one, the usual employer refrain is “…yes, you took the course, but we really don’t know how good you are and besides, you have no experience   ‘’’.  A lot of money and time more than likely wasted.  Hence this posting.


Any help, including redirecting me if appropriate, that anyone could provide towards this goal would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks very much.
