There are a lot of things you can do in a month. You can read 10 books, watch 20 films, start a new diet, start jogging, get a pet, join a public library, follow Kanye West on Instagram, and you can vote for someone at an election and feel extremely disappointed with the outcome. Obviously you get the picture, we do lots of things that are useful in life, and loads of things that are useless, and could be considered a complete waste of time! 

Yet, the one thing we can all do that isn’t a waste of time is learning. Learning with Careerist, for example, is never a waste of time, and, in fact, it’s always a gain for you and it’s a way of ensuring you have a successful career.

The focus of our article is the manual testing course at Careerist. Here is a short reminder of who a manual tester is, a manual QA tester is a quality assurance engineer who is responsible for checking software development processes. Their job is to improve processes, and to prevent and eliminate deficiencies within this software development process. 

All work processes are performed manually by manual testers, including the software testing itself, identifying problem areas, entering data into the database, and re-testing for errors. 

At Careerist, we offer courses in manual testing for everyone to enjoy. This includes people who have tech experience and those who have no experience in the tech field at all. Our course is both useful and enlightening, and not boring at all! (We know it’s an unlikely combo!) Our aim is to enable students to obtain a level of knowledge and understanding about the manual testing field that will allow them to apply, and get hired, at high paying jobs in the tech field.

So, how do you become a manual tester in just a month?

Now let us look at each of the topics and lessons in some more depth.

The first two lessons on our manual testing course will be dedicated to having a career in software quality assurance, and examining the job market with you. Within these lessons, we will also cover the basics of testing software products including; user interface testing, discussing a bug’s life cycle, and the use of the JIRA bug tracking system. Additionally, we'll also talk about client-server architecture and BrowserStack.

We devote lessons 3, 4, and 5 to web application testing processes. We will consider different kinds of testing, in particular, the Waterfall, Agile, and Scrum approaches. These lessons will also include a practical task, whereby you, the student, will be asked to write web test applications, test cases, and bug reports of your own. Instructors will also be on hand to provide advice and mentorship during these lessons.

Lessons 6-8 will touch up on the topic of mobile application testing. Looking at; How are iOS and Android apps, Xcode, and Android Studio used for manual testing? How to install and uninstall applications and log files? And again, we will introduce a very important practical aspect to these lessons. You, the student, will test mobile applications, write test cases of your own, and report bugs back to your tutor.

During lessons 9 and 10 we'll move you onto learning some more advanced skills, such as, Unix and ADB commands, continuous integration, and working with databases. These lessons also contain a bonus. You, the student, will also be introduced to the API  testing processes and to the many different formats of transporting data.

The final stage of the course is dedicated to preparing you for the job market. Your instructors will not only share effective job searching strategies with you, but they will also give you a list of job market hacks. Plus, as a student you'll get a chance to practice for a job interview with your tutors, so you can perfect your interview technique!
