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.
