What People Say
Joining Portnov Computer School in June 2022 has been an incredible journey that I am truly grateful forJune 5, 2023
I enrolled in the course in June 2022 and immediately wished I’ve done it sooner
I enrolled in the course in June 2022 and immediately wished I’ve done it sooner. You spend 4-6 months in school learning about QA extensively and then you change your life forever. I never thought I’d end up in IT without specific college education, but Portnov Computer School made this dream possible.
The teachers are extremely knowledgable and work closely with their students. The material presented is up to date and covers the basics of different QA avenues. The internship offered at the end of the course is an extensive program that covers all your gaps from the previous classes.
Me and my husband both attended Portnov Computer School and as of today, we are both employed as QA Engineers.
Portnov Computer School is like Santa on Christmas – they make your wishes come true. Thank you, dear School, we will always be grateful to you!
In March 2023, right after Portnov Computer School, I was hired as a QA Engineer. I am very grateful to the school!
I had previous experience in the IT field, some programming skills, graduated coding bootcamp, but wasn’t hired directly as QA. Although I had good combination of in-demand skills it was the projects of the Portonov Computer School that became the final touch in getting the desired position. The structured presentation of the material without haste and leaders who gave right altitudes and directions – this what I was looking for as an advanced student. Also I met a person couple years ago who moved to my state for a new role QA Engineer – this made me sure in my choice.
Wish everyone good luck! Keep learning no matter what!
Everything I have, I owe to Portnov Computer School. I am a second generation Portnov Computer School Alumn.
My father became certified here a long time ago when we came to the United States from Russia, and has been working in the field for more than a decade. I too have followed in his footsteps. I started my journey in June of 2022 and have completed a very comprehensive course, as well as an internship with the school. The covers all the bases, which included understanding test methodologies, creating test cases, using web technologies for testing, API, command line, database verification, introduction to automated test scripts, mobile app testing and most importantly: the course offers a look into a real software development environment, with necessary resources to make you job market-ready. I have completed the course and have started working at a company in the medical/biotech field called Lighthouse Worldwide Solutions and have been there since February of 2023. I believe that PCS offers the most insight to become a certified Software QA and your success story may just start here too, same as it did for my father and same as it did for me!
During the course, I’ve gained practical, hands-on experience in various testing methodologies
For several years, I’ve been contemplating a career switch and whether I should take the QA course at Portnov School, and now I’m glad that I did. During the course, I’ve gained practical, hands-on experience in various testing methodologies such as manual and automated testing that I can apply in real-world scenarios. The program is both rigorous and very comprehensive which made it challenging for me at times, but the rewards are definitely worth it!
The school staff and the instructors are very knowledgeable, patient and dedicated to ensure that their students receive the best possible education. That being said, I’m particularly grateful to Janna Spector and Olga Chekhanovskaya for their experience based insights, support and encouragement during the times of doubt – it made a huge difference. They are truly great instructors! I would like to express my appreciation to Julia for her prompt responses and assistance whenever I had questions. Also, a big thanks to Sofia Pravdina for helping me to find the internship.
Overall, I had a very positive experience with the QA course and I’m excited about the opportunities that lie ahead for me in my new career path.
