Thank you so much for your course! You guys are awesome and down-to-earth. I came with no IT background, but now I feel oriented and ready to talk about tech and to get a job at a tech company.

Omari A.

I am very happy that I made the decision to learn QA with Careerist. The instructors were extremely supportive and really helped me to find a job in tech. I feel I am set to grow in my career as a tester. Although there were long hours of tests every day, it was a really fun challenge. It took over 4 months, but I finally landed a job!! Careerist has been with me every step of the way. Thanks, Careerist team!

Amanda G.

Careerist provided fantastic service. I’m currently working full time and am further progressing in my tech career. Highly recommend the course and the company. The customer service and team always worked very closely with me. Thank you!

Lona P.

This is a wonderful course for learning not only theoretical information but also important practical skills. This course provides a broad understanding of testing, but you get to do an internship too. They also teach you how to sell yourself, job hunt, and get a job! I’m really impressed! I can’t believe I finally got a job in tech.

Liu H.

I joined Careerist QA training with my wife, and it was great! We both come from non-IT backgrounds and the way the course was taught in a practical way made things easier for us to understand. I feel getting hands-on experience from day one really immersed us. I'd recommend Manual QA training to everyone who wants to get into the tech industry. Within 5 months, we both landed jobs! Anyone who wants to learn QA should join Careerist!

Sara M.

My experience with Careerist has been great. They have helped me through the entire process starting from taking the training to landing a job as a QA Engineer. I think for me the best part was how honest and open they were about their program, which I was able to get from their free webinar. You can ask any questions you may have and they will clean up your doubts.
