    Most affordable course for Manual QA's

    I was able to enroll in the Manual QA program during a special Black Friday sale.  All of the teachers are experienced QA's who are friendly and pleasant.  This course is the perfect bridge into the tech industry, especially for those without a technological background.  No coding experience is required.  Furthermore, the course includes an internship and externship.  They teach you everything you need to know and the supplemental materials are extremely helpful.

It took me a little bit longer than what I had expected in the beginning. I came in thinking I would be employed in less than one month, it took me until March of 2023 to get hired. However I must admit that I was not applying to many jobs, in fact I'd go weeks without submitting a single application. However I'd still have recruiters reach out to me consistently a...

    Informative and easy course

    I've decided to switch careers from the restaurant industry to the tech field.

    My perspective on tech was changed!

    I was introduced to the world of Tech Sales Engineering in this course and learned a lot about navigating this industry as a newbie.  I would say to attend the first few free courses to really gauge if this course is right for you. This is something they offer.
