It was a great experience to be trained at Portnov Scool for the Software QA courses. I was able to secure a Intership after I finished training with the help of the school. Through mock interview and clearance they make sure you are ready for the interviews. I would definitely recommend the training to anybody who wants to enter the software QA industry. Protnov School ROCKS!!

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 wonder if they are going to ask me about HTML/CSS or perhaps JavaScript or SQL or maybe even XML. I also wonder if they will ask about QA techniques and different testing types and methodologies or is it going to be about Automation tools. But amidst the normal interview anxiousness, I have this calmness inside me, because I know whatever the question might be, I am well equipped for it. I never knew so much can be accomplished in such a short time. But with experienced instructors, right approach and teaching techniques, anything is possible. And I’m proud to say, I found all of that in the three months of my stay in Portnov Computer School. I am grateful to all the Instructors and stuff members for their remarkable instruction, support and a shot for an internship. This is indeed an outstanding career changing program.

I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in the Software Quality Assurance field!

Hi everyone,

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


Mikhail is an experienced teacher and consultant in job search - he can

better than anybody reveal your strengths and weaknesses and advise you on

the best way to take a job. You should not be waiting that until somebody

does it for you, you have to learn hard and take full responsibility of

your future. Your success fully depends on you.

Thank you, Mikhail, Sofia, Olga and all others! Guys, you are wonderful.

Great Life Change Opportunity – Thinking about your career change? Want to be a part of high tech environment? Looking for fast and productive training with quick career start? YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE! Within 12 weeks you’ll get basic QA training by professional instructors, practical projects and QA course book. You will be ready to start your new career! I was looking for a complete career change. In November 2011 - January 2012 I took QA Express course with Yana – one of the best instructors I ever had. The lessons were very easy going, productive and interesting. I’ve received great opportunity to participate in multiple projects, which benefit me a lot as a practical exercise. Also, Portnov Computer School makes sure you are ready for an interview with your potential employer – that’s why you have smoke interview and clearance interview with instructors before the school starts arranging internship interview for you. Did I mention Portnov Computer School provides you with internship? THEY DO! And this is very important part of you new career start. I got contract offer from great company after my first interview. Thank you very much, Sofia, for your great support, help and care! I saw many people graduated from Portnov Computer School with very successful career and now looking forward to be one of them. This school can change you life for good!

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). Knowledge they share is always up to date and is adjusted in tune with new industry trends, which I find very valuable.

School provides the wide range of technology technology trainings, so I keep coming back to obtain new skills that I can apply at my work!

I can recommend this school as a great destination for those who are interested in advancing in their careers or those who are thinking of career change.
