Well-organized training system

The school gave a clear idea of the profession of a tester and a wide range of tools used in manual and automated testing. Well-organized training system, interesting speakers, a large amount of practice. Quick help with administrative issues and support in the employment process. Ideal for entering, understanding and further development in testing. It doesn’t give false hope.

The best place to start career in Software Testing

There is a reason why so many people around the country move to California (like me) and choose Portnov Computer School among other schools – it is simply the best place to start career in Software Testing. I came here from New York and I think it was one of my best decisions I made in my life. Students here receive all the fundamentals and more to start their careers in IT world. The learning process is so enjoyable and all instructors are real professionals. Students have opportunities to work on real Web or Mobile applications, so by the time they finish all the classes, they feel confident about their technical skills. The whole curriculum is a mix of theory and practice at the same time. The only sad thing is when the classes are over and you start missing the studying vibes, colleagues and teachers.

Now, I have an offer and I can’t wait for the first day at a new place. I highly recommend Portnov Computer School to everyone who wants to change their career!
