Our Objective: You’ll want to come to class eager to learn and prepared to work. At the end of six weeks, you’ll walk out of class as a new person. You are now qualified for your first QA or Tester position, and you’ll have a Certificate and Portfolio to prove it!
Our Curriculum: The processes and expectations for Test Automation and White Box Testing have undergone significant transformation. Our course is based on the new standards for web testing: robust, scalable, and trackable. You’ll build test scripts using Java, Flash, UI, DataDriven, and more. You’ll learn the same testing practices and tools that you’ll use on the job, like Ant and Maven.
Detailed Schedule: SQA Solution classes run from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., 3 evenings a week, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays. Classes vary between structured intros to exercises or projects and full day Testathons. During a Testathon, you may finish the previous day’s projects, or test and code a new project or exercise. Following is how a structured day will look:
§ 9 a.m.: Breakfast. We’ll discuss technology and testing over breakfast in the classroom. (Saturday only)
§ 6:30 p.m.: Events. We hold different types of events. You can ask our guest instructors about their job experiences, go to meetups, practice interviewing, or just work on projects. The program ends at 8 p.m. However, you may want to continuing working much later.
§ Weeks 1 – 2 include teaching the basics of Test Automation and programming.
§ Weeks 4 – 6 focus on project-oriented learning, both in groups and individually. This covers working on new projects from scratch and working on existing codebases. During this time, you’ll be creating your portfolio.
§ Towards the completion of the course, there will be a “hiring day” where we’ll present you to several potential employers. You’ll have time to speak with them individually and show them your portfolio. Don’t worry—this will be an enjoyable time. Because, during the course, we’ll be guiding you through practice interviews so that you’ll feel prepared and confident about what you’ve learned and what you can offer a new employer.
Tuition: Our aspiration is to teach motivated students how to be great Testers. However, we understand that motivated students have various types of financial backgrounds. So, although we charge a reasonable tuition, a certain amount of financial aid will also be available. If you’re seriously interested in our course, then please go ahead and apply. We can discuss details during the process of admission.
Housing: If you don’t already live in the San Francisco area, we may be able to help you with arranging housing. We know of some student housing, and we’ve contacted a nearby hostel who has agreed to house our students at a reduced rate. (You will be responsible for the costs of your own housing.)
