What People Say

Looking back now, the decision to change a career and the fact that I chose Portnov Computer School for that is one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life.

Deciding to change a career and start a path in a completely new industry was one of the hardest decisions that I made and to say that I was not skeptical at first would be a lie. Like anyone who has been working in a different profession and jumping into a new path, I had so many doubts, so many questions, would I understand it? Would I ever be successful? Would I get a job? … a lot of questions.

Looking back now, the decision to change a career and the fact that I chose Portnov Computer School for that is one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. This school has changed my family’s life to the better. My sister studied here 5 years ago, and she is currently a senior QA engineer in a big company in the Bay area.

Up to date curriculum, flexible schedule, incredibly supportive and talented teachers, information on current market trends, guidance and follow up until you land a job is only a few of the reasons why I feel so strongly about this school. Every single one of the teachers here are skilled and know their stuff incredibly very well. I would like to thank Janna, Olga, Tanya and Sofia for supporting me through this Journey. Special thanks to Sofia Pravdina who makes wonders in matching everyone with an internship either internal or external. The school’s good relationship with a lot of companies in the Bay area and across the country is also an asset. The external internship position that I just landed on is a great example for that. I am beyond grateful for what I have got from Portnov .

Even before completing my internship I got two offers. Portnov is really doing great in mentoring the students.

If you are looking for chabge of career i. Software as a QA Engineer, then this is the right place. I highly recommend Portnov school. Even before completing my internship I got two offers. Portnov is really doing great in mentoring the students. The Mentors here are amazing. They teach us all techniques. I would say, they teach us beyond what a QA should know. Even a 10 years of experienced QA Analyst are not aware of most of the techniques that we learn here. So I would say, please make use of this platform and sure you will end up with a good amazingly paid jobs. I really thank the school for providing me this amazing opportunity and exposure to the QA world with real time experience(Internships). And also I would like to Thank the mentors here, who take special care on each and every students in improving the skills.

Portnov Computer School is a perfect place for people who are looking for a job in the IT industry.

Portnov Computer School is a perfect place for people who are looking for a job in the IT industry. Besides of excellent Software Quality Assurance teaching methodology, the school also teaches a lot of helpful technical skills (Linux/Unix, SQL, HTML, CSS, JS, API, test automation, etc.), gives a practical experience with real projects, and provides a lot of support by preparing you for job searching. I’m very grateful for the opportunity to start my new job in the IT industry. Six months ago, before my decision to choose this school, I couldn’t even dream about that. What is most important is that this school has a team of great people led by a guru in this field Mikhail Portnov. The school really cares about each of its students if this student is ready to learn, practice, and follow school’s instructions.

Thank you so much.

I got a job right after my internship!

If you want to start a career in the IT field, Portnov Computer School is the place to go for training. The SQA course at Portnov has been a life-changing experience. I got a job right after my internship! All of the classes are designed to give you the best understanding of SQL, SQA, Unix/Linux, API, Automation, Mobile testing, and more.

Like nowhere else, teachers care about students and they are very supportive. My basic knowledge and technical skills improved greatly. The school prepared my resume and provided excellent counseling on how to answer interview questions and ways to project myself in the job market. Great school, great internship opportunities, and great instructors (Janna, Olya, Sofia, Tanya, Hanna, Galina, Anna). It is always a pleasure to hear Irina’s voice when I call the school.

A special thanks goes to Sofia Pravdina. She is an amazing, helpful and encouraging person. Another special thanks to Luiza, the director of the school, for support and guidance. I would definitely recommend Portnov Computer School to anyone looking to jump-start their career
