QA Flex

QA Flex™ is an evening (5:00 pm – 9:00 pm) career change program perfectly suited for students who are working during the day or who have other scheduling challenges. This flexible program allows the student to complete their training while affording them choices in time allocation. QA Flex™ takes 16 weeks to complete.

Imagine learning a new skill from scratch — no matter your current background — and getting a job that has plenty of potential for advancement. That’s QA. It requires no special background and can be done in person or online. In fact, your current background will probably help you be a great QA tester.

While many other jobs are getting outsourced, tech jobs are so much in demand that companies can’t hire fast enough.

Most programming jobs take years of education — but you can become a QA specialist in just a few months. The industry is growing so fast that people are often getting hired right out of our courses at $35+/hour. People who previously worked minimum wage jobs in factories, grocery stores, etc., people for whom English is not their first language, people with zero programming skills or IT background — everybody can become a QA specialist and be ready to ace the interviews (and get a job) after completing our QA course.

Portnov Computer School is known as the pioneer in QA education. It is not only the oldest one in the U.S. (over 26 years) but is the only one backed by the U.S. Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education.

Our graduates have an unheard-of success of 79% placement rate. That’s partly because we take care of our students like no other computer school. Every student goes through an internal internship and then can do one of several external ones (working in real IT companies) to be ready for a good-paying QA job.

The secret to our program’s success is simple: we don’t pack 300 students into each class — every class is limited to 40 students, with 1-on-1 teacher attention to each student. Students learn to work in small groups of 4-5 (just like in a real job), discuss topics in class, and can always privately ask the teacher any questions.

Each student gets 400+ hours of QA education, interview prep, and job training, including:

160 lecture hours of in-classroom education plus over 240+ hours of instructor-led HANDS-ON practical activities and training. This is not memorization or copying what the instructor does but actual practical learning that you remember, that teaches you how to be good at QA. These are the skills employers look and hire for.

Here is how the lesson hours break down:

40 hours of Software QA Fundamentals, including:

  • Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC)
  • Software Development models: Waterfall; Agile: Scrum, Kanban, Extreme, and other methodologies;
  • Test Documentation; Bug reporting and tracking; JIRA, Confluence

40 hours of Frontend Testing and Information Technologies: Web Technologies (HTML, CSS, JavaScript); Web Services (REST API); Networking)
24 hours of Backend Testing: UNIX/LINUX OS; SQL & RDBMS
40 hours of Mobile Testing plus 40+ hours of hands-on live project testing activities
40 hours of Test Automation (Selenium WebDriver)

This way, you can work on any device and any part of the tech stack — making you more valuable to employers than hiring separate people for each.
20 instructor-led hours plus 20 hours of practical hands-on activities on Software QA Testing Live Projects. This will be similar to the work employers require. After 26 years in business, we know exactly what most students will encounter in the job.

20 hours of interview preparation: most common interview questions; detailed review and best practices with examples for answering each question. We want our students to get the best jobs available ASAP. That’s why we make sure that you show up to an interview ready and confident.

65 instructor-led hours plus 140 hours of practical hands-on structured activities in the internal Internship/Bootcamp that every student completes after the main course to get a good feel for how QA works in the real world and be ready for doing QA in their job once hired by an employer.

15+ hours of the job market and latest industry trends review and analysis, knowledge & skills evaluations. Because we want our graduates to be ready for the best QA jobs both today and into the future.

Portnov students always get the best support, including:

  • Unlimited hours of personalized Job Interview Coaching: Mock Interviews for graduates so they are ready for any question a hiring manager throws at them.
  • Unlimited hours of Navigating Job Market Services: Job search webinars; placement assistance; resume preparation; etc. You are never alone in your job search. The reason we have such a high job placement success percentage over 26 years is that we are like a big family: taking personal care of each student while also making sure that you learn the newest QA testing instruments available on the market. The goal is for you to get a well-paying QA job no matter your previous background. And no other school has the expertise and learning environment that’s so perfect for getting you the skills you need to get that QA job.

    Portnov is amazing. I always think why i did not know about it before a year or two! Staffs,teachers are amazing and exposure to knowledge is immense, i like the pace too!! Thnks to all the people and staff i have come across. Definitely going to recommend.
  2. Irina ZJune, 2023

    I enrolled in the course in June 2022 and had my internship in the middle of February. I was able to find my first job pretty quick. The Teachers are highly professional and create a perfect balance between theory and hands-on practice. School really gives you everything you need for getting your new dream career. Knowledge in Manual testing, mobile, SQL, API and even Automation testing and understating the filed itself. Gratefully I highly recommend Portnov Computer School to anyone looking for a successful career in IT field. Thank You once again, you have changed my life 🙂
  3. Alexandra G.June, 2023

    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.
  4. Dinara BJune, 2023

    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.
  5. Sergei C.June, 2023

    I have known about this school for many years, I’ve heard only good things about it and knew several people who went through it personally. It took some courage for me to make a decision and change my career path, but when the time came, Portnov Computer School was my first choice. I signed up for QA classes and did my best attending sessions and learning new things. In the end it all paid out – I got a job as a QA Engineer! I could not do it without my teachers who shared their valuable knowledge and were always there for me and my classmates. I recommend this school to anyone who wants to start their career in tech industry. Thank you Portnov Computer School!
  6. NikolayDecember, 2022

    I am endlessly grateful for the opportunities open to me after finishing the QA program at Portnov School.
  7. JassmynOctober, 2022

    I highly recommend Portnov. I utilized their QA Express program and I could not imagine being successful in the QA market right now without what I learned. More than that, I could not have been successful in learning any of it without instructors like Janna. There were many times I felt like I should quit or that perhaps I wasn’t doing that well, and she was always patient with the class. She always took the time to demonstrate and thoroughly explain what was being taught. So even though, as she always reminded us, I was successful because of the work I put in, I could not have made it to the end without her wisdom, knowledge and guidance every step of the way. If you are considering a job in the QA world GO HERE! You will not be disappointed.
  8. PavelOctober, 2022

    For several years I wanted to change my occupation and start earning a living from intellectual work again, as I did before moving to the USA. And at one point I decided to go to a Portnov Computer School and now I am grateful to myself and the school that this is happened to me. The training was so intense that sometimes I did not believe that it was possible to learn all the material even if the training period was doubled. But in fact, everything is possible, because now, as a result, I successfully passed all the exams, completed an internship and just as successfully received an invitation to work in a company that I could not even dream of. Thank you school for everything!
  9. MonmitaOctober, 2022

    The teachers are so highly knowledgeable and made sure that the fundamental concepts are very clearly understood. It helped me boost my confidence to prepare myself to face interviews. I am really thankful to Janna, Olga. Anna, Artem for their excellent guidance to quickly grasp some of the complex topics and materials of the course. I am grateful to the entire Portnov team for the excellent experience they provided that helped me to be successful in getting a job as a Software QA Analyst. I shall definitely recommend this school to all my friends.
  10. AlexandraOctober, 2022

    I’ve got more self confidence because of kind words, support and feedback which teachers provides during classes. The school program gives the opportunity to learn must have QA skills like creating test cases, bug reports, API testing, working with databases and basics of Selenium Web driver for automating web application testing. If all the assignments were completed student get knowledge of QA processes and guidance for the future professional skills development. Thank you.

    The school thought me all the necessary technologies required for software QA Engineer. Also, the internship provided by the school gave me real time Software QA engineer experience. The job clearance interview by Olga from the school gave me more confidence and courage to face the outside interview. All the questions that were asked me in the interview was covered in the classes and I would say there were no surprise questions or topics in the interview. I would highly recommend Portnov Computer school for anyone looking to restart their career or anyone who wants to join IT industry. I am very grateful to my instructors Janna, Olga, Anna, Artem for all the guidance. Special thanks to Portnov staff Irina and Julia for helping me schedule my job clearance interview.

QA Basics, SWDM, QA Testing, QA Methodologies, Documentation, Bugs, HTML, CSS, JIRA, Confluence, JavaScript, SQL, XML, UNIX/Linux, Mobile Testing, API Automation, UI Automation, Git/GitHub, Cucumber/Gherkin, Selenium WebDriver, Xpath, Jenkins CI/CD. Can you ask of any other school that covers so much testing software and tools? The most important part is that students get help in their resumes as well as interviews and any and all questions. Highly recommend would be an understatement. Thanks for everything.

  24. OksanaMarch, 2022

    A year ago I was browsing these pages wondering whether this school is for me. I had a very vague idea of what QA is and had no clue what HTML, JS, or SQL are! ))) But I took a plunge ...and now working as an Automation QA Engineer in a big and respectable company. So, how could it happen in just a year?A big part of it is your dedication to learning. If you want to succeed you have to prepare to do your part of the work: lectures, homework, exploration, practice...daily! If you are willing to do your part then I can assure you that this school will do everything possible to teach and help you each step of the way!!! You see one incredible feature of the school is its staff. Amazing people! Everyone is extremely knowledgeable and experienced. But someone can say "Well, there are knowledgeable people somewhere else as well" and probably will be right. But what sets this school family (yes, it feels like a family)) apart is a true passion for the profession as well as deep care for students' success! Everyone in school wants you to achieve your goals. They are not satisfied with you just getting through the course but want you to get a job and are ready to help you out anytime. If you will have problems they will try their best to help, if you land a job of your dreams they will celebrate it with you the way the only family does. It's a place where people care!!! And I cannot stress it enough. I think that it's crucial when you are climbing a mountain of new knowledge. You need support and care and you have it here !!!! Truly. And you can't help but get inspired ))). I was hooked during our first lecture with Janna Spector -"amazing, wonderful, beautiful" )). Her passion is highly contagious! Be warned! ))) Janna will make sure that you know the base of QA like your own name! ))) If you need a shot of self-confidence then gorgeous and intelligent Luiza will deliver it to you! ))) You will learn API testing with very calm and patient Sofia, and maybe will be lucky to go through the practice with her! )) Olga Chekanovskaya will teach you the most technical parts. It's not scary, its fun, in big part because inside of Olga still lives a small curious girl who is open to continuous learning from students also ))) She also introduced us to my current love - Automation testing!))) Tanya was spectacular at teaching us Mobile Testing! Incredibly nice and funny person!))) Galina Logunova who was my instructor during the practice blew me away with her presentation of material and extra attention to students' needs. If someone was struggling she was there ready to work with that person one on one. It takes true dedication. Amazing lady!!! Also very calm but warm ))). Anna and Irina, two great ladies, who were working behind the scenes to assure that the process goes smoothly!)) Sofia Pravdina! Extremely energetic, caring "mom" of the school who wants to help everyone and does!))))) ...I just can't express all the feelings and gratitude I have for every person I was lucky enough to meet at school! ))) It was a tough road but well worth it!!! And I'm extremely happy that I climbed it together with such wonderful people (and my smart and enthusiastic fellow students!!! Almost all of them are working now whether as a Manual QA or an Automation one!!!!)))) ( Guys, if you ll decide to go into Automation after the basic course then I cannot recommend enough the course of Slava Skryabin "Automation with Java"! It's the Universe of its own!) Portnov School, you are the best, dear people! Thank you for teaching, guiding, caring. Thank you for the tough times and laughter shared! Potential new students, guys, I envy you ))) If you take this road in 4-5 months you will look back and will be amazed by how much you have learned and how much it transformed you! Best of luck, future colleagues! You can do it)))
  25. VladFebruary, 2022

    I have no regrets for joining Portnov Computer School. Their knowledge in SQA and employment process is unbeatable. Moreover, they have professional teachers with great attitude towards their students. If you are looking to enter SQA field PSC is your best bet.
  26. Edgar SanchezJanuary, 2022

    Phenomenal program and class. The school provides a life changing opportunity with their programs that lead to a great career in TECH..

    Portnov Computer School. Not only does it provide training on all contemporary technologies in the quality assurance field but it also helps people find jobs by elaborating on interview questions and sharing former students' interview experience. Following the teachers and other school staff's instructions will help the overwhelming majority of students find a job as a software quality assurance engineer or similar. All the above said is based on my personal experience at school.
  29. GenrikhDecember, 2021

    I am really glad I went to this amazing Portnov school which thought me a lot about Qa and helped me to learn all about it. School has amazing teachers and overall everything is perfect. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone who is interested to be in IT world.
  30. Anna S.November, 2021

    The one thing that I regret about Portnov Computer School is not starting it earlier! I should have done it earlier. It changed my life, it changed my vision of IT field. This school taught me not only to understand technical stuff such as HTML, CSS, JS, API, SQL, Linux/Unix, but also become more confident as a person. I would love to thank all the teachers Janna, Olga, Sofia, Michael who are not only knowledgable and experienced in this field but also super patient. Also, I would like to thank Director of Operations, Sofia Pravdina for being so care about the students. I would recommend PCS to all my friends who want to get into IT field. It’s a great and effective start, but don’t forget that it is not easy, it’s a hard work, but teachers will teach you how to work smart)))
  31. AngelinaOctober, 2021

    I can safely say that the Portnov Computer School taught me about confidence during the interview process, and if I have any questions, the teachers are always happy to answer and help me. I have already received three offers, with very decent salaries. Portnov School provides exactly that practice and process that would be useful in your future dream job.
  32. GarimaOctober, 2021

    I have been going to Portnov for 3 months, and I already got an internship. I would recommend people to go to Portnov who are looking for a career change. This school is life-changing, but only if you are willing to put some efforts and work hard during study cycle. Great school, great internship opportunities, great instructors, learned a lot practical experience from the projects, my basic knowledge and technical skills improved a lot. A special thanks goes to Sofia, she is really awesome, helpful and encouraging person I have ever meet. Thanks all!!
  33. PiterOctober, 2021

    I started Portnov Computer School at the end of April. Despite all other good or bad reviews I can tell one thing, if you want to find a job and start a new career the school will definitely help you. You have to be ready to work a lot. The teachers will give you tons of information, but it’s your job to study. Everybody at the school is helpful. They navigate you through the curriculum. Just work hard and you will achieve your goal.

  37. EvgeniyJuly, 2021

    Hello everyone! To everyone who is considering Portnov Computer School to gain knowledge in the field of Software Testing! I highly recommend this school for the following reasons: - Basic knowledge of theory in Software Testing! - Practical and homework! - Familiarity with many tools and technologies! - The school can organize practice on several real projects and in my opinion this is the most valuable thing that I got in this school! - Help and support when looking for a job! Let me draw your attention once again to: The school provides basic and structured knowledge and this means that in any case it will be necessary to improve many topics on your own or take additional courses. It all depends on what you like or where you feel there are gaps. But!!!!! This is not a bachelor's degree in computer science !!!!! The school gives everything for the start and further self-development !!!!! In general, the school is worthy of attention and I do not regret that I chose it some time ago! (And here's another thing, since the school has existed for more than a dozen years, Mikhail and the teachers have a large number of friends in a huge number of companies where you can get to practice, as was the case in my case) If my wife decides, I will definitely send her to Portnov School! Thanks a lot from me: Michael, Janna, Olga, Sofia, Sofia Pravdina, Galina, Anna Mazur and of course Galina Ilchenko (the best mentor in my life !!!)
  38. Grace LooJuly, 2021

    After being a stay at home mom for a decade, I decided to return to work and explored a new career. My friend recommended me to Portnov Computer School after her success in her new career in SQA. I took the courage to go for it despite my old age and commitment to my family. After all the perseverance and encouragement, I did it. I honestly had a great time learning at Portnov. The teachers (Janna, Olga, Tanya, Galina and Sofia) are all wonderful and full of passion. They not only gave us extra classes to complete the course but also gave me one-on-one attention from their personal time. They not only taught me the technical skills that are needed to be a SQA Engineer, they also taught me how to ace the interview. I also wanted to thank Sofia Pravdina who helped me with job placement. Right after the SQA course, I was given multiple internships/projects where I could work in a company to gain real working experience. Last but not least, I want to thank Mikhail Portnov. He gave me personal attention on how to improve my resume and jobsite profile. He even gave me good advice when I had multiple offers. I highly recommend Portnov Computer school to my friends. Everyone there is so supportive and they have lots of resources for me to further my skills too. I will never stop learning and I am going to take an advanced course (in Test Automation) there.
  39. IlmiraJuly, 2021

    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.

    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!

    It is evident that choosing a boot camp is a big decision that can change the course of your life, so who better to get advice from than learners who have been right where you are? This is Eyob who wants to vouch for Portnov Computer School to all who wants to start their career in IT with or without any prior experience. Coming from a non-IT background, I was a bit skeptical whether I can really make a career in this field but as I started attending the classes for Software Quality Assurance, I quickly realized that the teachers: Michael, Janna, Olga, Sofia, Galina and Tatiana go above and beyond to prepare everyone for the long run. They deliver an up-to-date curriculum that suits the market needs and provide students with hands on software training with top leading and efficient programs such as Java, Selenium, Cucumber, SQL, Linux, API, Networking, Mobile testing etc. Not only that, at the completion of the course the school will provide internship opportunities and an intensive boot camp training where the mentors go out of their way to assist with resume building and job applications. Going through this program was significant in helping me make a career change and I am very much pleased to share you that I managed to land in a decent job in the Bay area. Hence, I would strongly recommend anyone looking to get a career in IT to not think twice about enrolling in Portnov’s program. Kudos to Michael for creating such a life changing program and to Sofia in helping us find such decent jobs.
