I found Portnov Computer School online and I'm so happy that I did.Thank you Mikhail, Sofia,Olga K and Olga C for helping me to find an Internship even before I completed my course.Portnov offers you with all the knowledge needed to start your career and they provide all the necessary material,hands on experience with real time projects,mock interviews and the proper guidance.The instructors are very knowledgeable and very friendly.I highly recommend Portnov Computer School.
I started at Portnov in January 2013. Portnov uses teachers who are SQA Engineers/managers in Bay area companies. Content is very relevant – they cover Agile, Selenium, Mobile testing, computer networking etc. They start with basics of Software quality assurance such as writing and executing test cases, writing bug reports. Even someone very new to technology can come up to speed. Classes are a combination of theory and practice. Flexible schedule and instructors are very friendly.
My personal experience – I have background in Biology. I wanted to change my career. Sofia found the perfect SQA Internship for me which used my biology background. In fact I started the internship when I was half way through the course. I would highly recommend Portnov computer school for those who are trying to make a career change or get a job in silicon valley.
Seating in the lobby of Portnov Computer School, nervously awaiting my name to be called for an internship interview, I look back and remember – about the same time three months ago – coming through those doors to the same lobby to ask about the Software Quality Assurance program. Now looking back – between the intense lectures, technical training and live projects – it seems three months flew so fast. However, at this very day – few minutes before my interview – the amount of information processing in my head is enormous.
I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in the Software Quality Assurance field!
I am a new immigrant-only 2 years in the US. I had a strong background in
my country but in America I had to start as a pizza delivery driver and
later on worked as a salesperson in a Russian store. I found an ad about
Portnov Computer School in a local magazine and asked my friends about
this school. I heard a lot of success stories from real people who
attended this school and were able to find a good job in QA. Many of them
were not very young, same as me.
I received a very warm welcome at Portnov, and was given an opportunity to
attend several classes before making the final decision to join the
program. Sofia is really great! She guided me through all the stages of
studies and internship placement, being always patent and polite to

One of the best Sofware Technology Schools – I had great experience with this school. Their instructors are outstanding, all working professionals in software industry. Their curriculum is very practical and oriented to provide the maximum knowledge to the students in the short time frame (about 3 months long classes).
