Software Testing Course

Are you ready to switch careers and make a living from tech?

The world is becoming more digitalized by the passing day. You use software and applications daily, from your smartphone to your laptop. Who is responsible for ensuring they work properly? That’s where QA (Quality Assurance) specialists come in.

If you want to learn about software testing and land a job right after completing a bootcamp, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll learn about the different QA specialties and how to become an expert in these fields with the best courses. But let’s begin with the basics.

What is Quality Assurance?

As its name suggests, QA stands for ensuring the final product is ready for users. In the tech world, that means that applications and devices are bug-free. It gives the company and the product credibility, and users have the guarantee that they won’t waste their money.

Quality Assurance is about meeting the expectations and needs of customers regarding design, functionality, durability, and price. Users want good value for money, and you are there to provide.

Quality Assurance in Software Testing

Once you become a tester, you will be responsible for improving the software development process, which contains different phases:

  • Defining the requirements and analyzing needs
  • Studying the feasibility
  • Designing the product
  • Coding the product
  • Testing the product
  • Installing the product
  • Maintaining the product after the launch

As a QA tester, you will work closely with programmers, marketers, and developers. It’s a teamwork position – Should something go wrong, every department must collaborate to fix the problem.

The Average Salary

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average annual salary (nofollow link) for software developers, QA testers, and QA analysts was $110,140 in May 2020.

Stats also expect the number of positions to grow by over 20% by 2030 as technology becomes more ingrained in our modern society. It’s uncontroversial to say that becoming a QA tester is a safe bet.

QA training and placement for beginners

Do you need a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree to become a Quality Assurance specialist? The truth is that most companies don’t care about said degrees. In fact, you can become a software tester even if you are a beginner with little to no experience or background – All you need is training.

No one is born an expert in their field, and neither are you. Fortunately, there is always room for learning and improving. Now that you are ready to make a career in tech and land a new job, it’s time to find the best QA training bootcamp.

The complete 2022 software testing bootcamp

Our Test Pro bootcamp prepares you to enter the workforce. You’ll work on projects from day one – Tech companies don’t care so much about degrees but that you can solve problems and implement solutions. Therefore, experience in real-life projects is the number one requirement when choosing a QA training course.

What is a bootcamp?

QA bootcamps have become a popular way to learn and land a job in the tech niche.

The tech market lacks qualified professionals, even when more people are now switching careers to tech. The educational institutions don’t seem to prepare candidates well enough to do their job, so bootcamps were born as a means to solve this issue.

Our QA engineer bootcamps and QA tester bootcamps focus on teaching what large companies seek from potential candidates. You won’t waste time learning unnecessary skills but rather work on real-life projects and build an impressive portfolio.

Our QA training courses are defined by:

  • Very intensive learning in the short-term (3 months)
  • A focus on acquiring necessary and practical skills
  • Learning by doing – It’s time to solve real problems and gain experience
  • Packing into months what traditional institutions teach in years
  • Preparing you for future job interviews to land a job

And the best part is that you don’t need a background in tech. All we require from you is a passion for software and the will to make a well-paid career in one of the most demanded positions.

Do bootcamps guarantee a job?

The vast majority of bootcamp students land a job after graduating. Our courses focus on teaching you the necessary skills to ace the tech interviews (which are known to be hard!) and get hired.

Thanks to our focus on building a portfolio and acquiring experience via real-life projects, you are more likely than other bootcamp students to stand out in a tech-position interview.

Some of our students have landed jobs in the most prestigious tech companies, the famous FAANG: Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Alphabet (which stands for Google).

What do you learn in our QA testing courses?

We offer two different levels for you to make a career in tech. Every session is recorded and uploaded afterward, so don’t worry if you miss a meeting. We got you and ensure no one misses a thing. There’s no need for previous Computer Science knowledge, though it’s always a bonus!

review on qa training and placement for beginners
Kate T
QA Automation Engineer
Thank you, Evgeny and Denis for such an amazing, super helpful, and very well-structured course. My favorite thing in this course was the amount of real-life practice and every day control from the teachers. I got 2 offers and then got my job in 2 weeks. One of the most important aspects of getting a job is the interview, so personal Skype calls helped a lot. Thank you again, and I wish you and your students all the best!
review on quality assurance classes
Alene N
QA Enginee
I was surprised by how the complexity of the course auto-adjusts to the level and professional interest of each student. If the goal is to learn test automation 101 and penetrate the market – the boot camp is for you. If you already have significant experience but want to learn some specific skills – the boot camp is for you as well. I’ve been working almost a decade in test engineering, including low-level automation, and have seen so many un-scalable, poorly implemented, crappy testing frameworks… Don’t go down that road; go to TestPro way instead.

Nadia M
Software Developer in Test
I was lucky and happy to be your student. You make my vision of QA very clear. I feel like the last couple of years I really was working on projects! It gives me more confidence and understanding of workflows. And I made a lot of friends and good people here!
