QA Manual

Course duration

Level beginner
Course authorPavlo Matchenko
Start date

Overview

You don’t necessarily need to write code to start an IT career — you can check it instead. The quality of a product and the success of the team lie on the shoulders of the tester. If you enjoy evaluating a product as a whole, you have critical thinking skills, and you’d like to fix errors — we’ve got a course for you. That is QA Manual.

Even without any technical training, you will acquire the necessary knowledge about the QA profession. In this course, you will learn to find defects, write bug reports, compose test cases, checklists, and master test plans using the test design techniques. You’ll be able to conduct mobile testing, will get the hang of network basics, learn to calculate risks, and write autotests. You’ll become familiar with an all-purpose QA vocabulary as well as compile a portfolio. In the end, you will have a test interview with us and become ready to search for a new job.

  • QA opens doors to any other subfield such as PM, development, or business analysis.
  • Testers are the first ones to see the new software, get their hands on new apps, and learn the news of the field.
