  • We prepare you to work as a manual tester. We start with complete basics – no experience in testing or coding is required.
  • You will learn the specifics of working in a testing team, learn to analyze business requirements, prepare and execute scenarios and test cases, and then efficiently report test progress.

It is widely regarded that a tester is a person who checks whether the software works as it should. In reality, the role of testers is much broader and their importance in the software development process is comparable to the role of programmers. Testers take part in determining requirements, act as experts in various areas of IT system functionality, influence the creation of new versions of software, and fixing the defects they find is often worth its weight in gold, it can save a lot of time, money and the company’s reputation, and where human life depends on machines and their correct operation – detecting and removing errors can also prevent serious disasters.
