    Portnov is the best school to begin or change your career as a QA engineer. The curriculum teaches different aspects of software testing and new technology in the field. The school also provides an internship which helps you gain practical experience. They are up to date with the current job market and also prepare you for the interview. After graduating from Portnov, I was hired as an automation engineer!
