Awesome institute !!!!! Want to sincerely thank the whole Portnov team - Mikhile, Sophia, Elena,David,Janna, Olga and other people around them. These people have led me to the great future. Thank you all very much for everything you have done for me. During my training I was so very much enthusiastic to learn and I am aware that sometimes It had made my faculties frustrated. But there was no bad intension just wanted to get best on subject. Even there was time when I had doubts about placement. I was scared , unsecured and unaware about future. But today I regret for all my negative feelings. I have just finished my training and I got placed through institute.

If you want to kick start a career in the IT field, Portnov Computer School is the go to place for training.
If you want to kick start a career in the IT field, Portnov Computer School is the go to place for training. I was a bit skeptical about a career change, however taking up the SQA course in Portnov has been a life changing experience. The instructors (Olga C & Marina G) are very friendly and patient. The projects we did in school gave us good hands on experience on software testing. The best part for me was their intense interview training (Thanks to Janna, Olga K & Anna). They prepare your resume, conduct a couple of mock interviews and provide excellent counseling on how to answer interview questions and ways to project yourself in the job market. Everybody is given an opportunity to get into an internship program. I landed a really good internship and hope to find a job very soon. Special thanks to Sofia for helping with the internship interviews & job searches. I would also like to thank Mikhail for his support and guidance. I would definitely recommend Portnov Computer School to anyone looking for a jump start to their career.

This place is really wonderful if you are looking for a career change. I completed all my classes and started my internship with a wonderful company in bay area. 'Portnov' is the best place to go if you want to get a good training of QA. They have wonderful instructors who have very good knowledge and extensive years of working experience in QA field. So they know well what they are doing. I am really thankful to my instructors Olga C, Olga K and Janna. They are really wonderful instructors. Of course they are very strict and will not let you go unless you are very well prepared and have good confidence as a QA engineer. I really admire their mock interview and clearance process which allowed me to learn a lot. The most critical part is finding an internship and Sofia is the one who will come to help you. She is very kind and helpful person and I am really grateful to her for all the support she gave me through my internship interviews. I am really thankful to all my friends I met there. You will meet people from all over the world and will find lifelong friends. I really enjoyed the time I spent at Portnov and made bunch of good friends. This place did the magic for me. So I highly recommend it for anyone

Portnov is an amazing place for someone who is looking to change their career. It has been a blessing for me to be honest. I went to High school here in the USA. I got my degree in B.S psychology from San Jose State University in july 2015. I tried to find a job in this field, but it was not to be. Those who are currently taking any social science major, they know what I am talking about when I say that all these majors are heavily impacted.
After searching for a job for good 4-5 months, I knew I had to start doing something else.
I came across Portov school when I was searching for IT schools in the bay area. I joined Portnov in December 2015. Once I completed the course, I was able to get an internship at a Start up company. So, anybody who attends this School, Sofia Will help with the internship. Once your internship is done, Ask Mikhail to prepare your Job resume.
I spent about 3 months at this start up company. I learned a lot here, This is very good experience before you get a job, as it trains you for your next career step. I just received a job offer from a very well known company in the world (hint hint: It keeps the doctor away), and all of it is possible because of Portnov School. Now, do not expect to not work on your own and find a job. Portnov prepares you well, but you have to spend time on everything they teach and practice.
I would like to give a shout out to my favorite human being at Portnov, Sofia. She definitely has been one of the biggest part in this career change. Everybody at Portnov is very helpful, but Sofia has been the biggest reason why I got a job at this big company. If you are reading this Sofia,I just want to say thank you for caring.

I am about to finish all the classes and I already got an internship offer from a very good company.This is the BEST place to go if you want to get formal training on quality assurance. I found this school from internet after I made my decision to be a SQA engineer. I read a lot of reviews, positive ones, negative ones. I had my doubts before I went to this school, but after I started my classes here, I no longer have any doubts. The knowledge you will learn are very practical and useful. What you need to do is attending every class, concentrating, making notes, ask questions, do your home work and spend ALL of your free time studying. Think about it, you sacrifice your time for entertainment for only three months but in exchange you get your dream career and benefit from it for life time. You really need to treat seriously with every project as those projects are from real companies and it is a great opportunity for you to apply the basic theories you've learned so you will have a lot to say about your project in the interview.
Great school, great internship opportunities(special thanks to Sofia), great instructors (Olga K, Marina, Olga C and Janna), learned a lot practical experience from the projects (thank you again Marina and Janna), my basic knowledge and technical skills improved a lot (thank you again Olga K).
I will finish my review by quoting "Always remember that all of your hard work will eventually pay off" which is always the truth. Good luck everyone!
