If you are at the point of your life when you NEED a career change, update your technical skills, increase income or just feel good, doing something profitable for your future – you have to search no more. Portnov’s QA Computer School is your answer.
For all levels, and I mean it – ALL LEVELS – from the true beginners to professionals with over 10 years experience, looking for some polishing in technology – it’s the most effective, professional, affordable and friendly environment to learn and achieve your goals.
We relocated to Palo Alto and I decided to switch from the development to less stressful, but not less fun occupation – QA Engineer. I didn’t know where to start - checked few community colleges, UC extensions, etc, but all looked like long and expensive way to go, with the fixed rigid schedule. After few hours at Portnov’s school, I realize that it’s “doable” for any budget, level and schedule. Beside well organized lectures and hands on material, the staff will babysit you with interview preparation, internships, encouragement. After 3 months I got a contract for $55/hour. Hooray to all the wonderful teachers, Michael Portnov and school administrator, Sofia.
You will have a lot for your time and money – GO FOR IT.
I recently completed four classes at Portnov Computer School (09/08), and a one-month internship at a software company. Classes, lab resources, minimum of one internship opportunity (with more possible), Resume preparation assistance, Job Search guidance, and staff dedicated to serving the good of the student. The school serves a student population with a wide range of technical experience, skills, and knowledge (from none of these, to advanced levels of these). One student might argue for more of "this" in a class, and another student might argue for more of "that." I think the school did a good job of juggling diverse educational needs and striking a balance. To anyone with a sincere interest and committment to build qualifications for employment in the Software Quality Assurance and Software Testing field, I believe Portnov Computer School, with its classes and services, provides a considerable and worthwhile advantage. The greatest value is gained by those who apply themselves to the study and lab practice of the material introduced in class.
