I have been in the Software testing game for over 10 years

I am a well seasoned Senior QA. I have been in the Software testing game for over 10 years. I needed to upgrade my skills to include more in-depth knowledge of automation testing tools. This school employs highly regarded, professionals who are not just talking heads. These people have day jobs in the industry. These are industry leaders, experts and lettered professionals. The instructors are hands on and accurate. As for the owner of the school, he stakes his professional life on each graduate. Now, that is saying something! I respect and adore my instructors. Tough and through. Smart and friendly, even the ones who act gruff!

I give this school big props. It has earned my respect. I would say this is one of the best scholastic experiences I have ever had. They have taught me cutting edge techniques and time saving short cuts. If you are in the QA industry, you know that short cuts to create robust testing is priceless! I know I am getting the training that I need to stay competitive and marketable.

When I'm in class, I feel happy. That's how damn good it is in class. I'm getting the training I need to continue my career as a Software QA. As for Sofia, all I can say is she is smart, sweet, kind and helpful. She is a true gem! I don't want to forget Olga, who will hold your hand and listen to any self doubts you have. She is helpful and reassuring. She keeps the front office moving. Also, the tech support of Nikita. Anytime I had any technical issue that I could not resolve, Nikki was there to fix it.

Really, this school is a win-win for both the student and our ever changing industry. Portnov is truly as good as it gets!

Is Portnov Computer School for real?

I like that question. It just came up on Yahoo Answers.

There is not much of a discussion around the question anyway. Still there is something in it, which makes me to think about how folks make their educational choices. I would rather go to the school and look at it myself. No matter how much others like it or probably dislike it what does that really mean to you?

And yes, 85% of students come by referral, not because they read something on our web site or any other web resource.

If you read that post, why don't you go and contribute to the discussion, whatever it might be.
