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.

The course will start January, 8
from 5 pm to 9 pm (Pacific Time)
