CF109 “Software QA and Software Testing” Online Program

Hitek Computer School really helped me to develop my QA skills to fit in the ever changing tech industry. The offered courses were so detailed yet simplified for anyone to understand even without prior tech experience. Doing more assignments and actual work was my favorite part of the course. Apart from specific software skills, the course also covers general software industry information. The most notable thing during the course was the great instructors, who are very knowledgeable and genuinely care about their students and constantly update the course with new information as the technology changes. The course offers a real time application to work on, internship, interview tips and all the advice one could get to land a job. I would highly recommend Hitek Computer School to anyone looking to have a career in Software testing.

Hitek Computer School is such an awesome and wonderful school with a good selection of courses. I was delighted to enroll in the CF109 Software QA and Software Testing Program. It not only covers manual testing but also popular automation tools with a handful of practical applications, which are popular and in demand. It has been a pleasure to complete this course under the supervision of instructors Oleg and Igor, who are very knowledgeable, professional, and helpful. The internship provided in this course is a vital step in the path of success because you get the maximum amount of exposure to an almost-identical to workplace IT environment. After my first internship, I was able to find a job in a reputed company. I am really thankful to my instructors whose guidance and quick responses to my queries are incredible. I would highly recommend this school, and especially this course to anyone who is interested in software testing. I feel honoured to have had this experience. Thank you so much.

Hitek Computer School is a great place to learn and enhance your skills and then getting internship is the advantage they provide. I would definitely recommend the QA course at Hitek School. Course materials are very useful and up to the mark. I got the job after finishing my course over here.

Nidhi, Edmonton, AB, Email:

I am glad that I decided to take this course. I switched my career path drastically when I went from Mining Technologies field to IT/QA field. At first I was worried that I won’t be able to handle the program and that I will struggle just as much in finding a job in QA field as I did in Mining. However, the CF 109 “Software Quality Assurance and Software Testing” program was structured nicely and gradually increased in complexity with instructors ready to answer any of the questions that I had. At the end of the program I was offered a few internship positions which in the long run would add valuable experience to my profile, within 3-4 weeks of finishing this program and starting an online internship I received a job offer from an ISV company. Currently, I am working as Jr. Quality Analyst with a team which develops ERP software. I would recommend this program for people who want a career in IT.

Neha, Surrey, BC, Email:

This is a great course for anyone looking to start a new career with lots of opportunity. I got more value out of this class than I did from a 4-year college degree. The assignments provide both theory and hands-on testing work so that you are 100% ready when it comes time to interview. In a span of a year and a half I doubled my salary and feel confident that there’s plenty of room for even more growth in my career.

Paul, Philadelphia, PA, Email:

Here is my story. I had no QA experience before arriving in Canada. After completion the “Software Quality Assurance and Software Testing” course, I landed a six-month internship. At the end, I got a QA Engineer position in a very successful company. These facts speak for themselves. What do you need in order to reproduce my success? A desire to be a QA professional and knowledge of WHAT to do in QA and an understanding about HOW to get a job. Hitek Computer School will give you all of this, but your desire is your own responsibility. The instructors are not only professionals in the IT field, but they genuinely care about their students. I got support from them even after my course was finished. Looking back, I can see that Hitek Computer School was an extremely important stepping stone in my new career in Canada. I believe Hitek Computer School is the place to start!

Andrei, Burnaby, BC, Email:

I have really enjoyed taking the QA course from Hitek School. Both instructors are very professional and have very good teaching methodology. Course material is up to date and well organized. I was able to find a job within a month after graduating. Would wholeheartedly recommend Hitek Computer School!

Ivana, Toronto, ON, Email:

My story. New to place with no idea of the labor market and also no experience in QA. Hitek Computer School had helped me to make my decision regarding my career in QA. The lessons are well organized, full of examples which really help to understand the topic. The most valuable part of the entire course is “Assignments”; it consists of exercises which give hands-on practice to compete with the real world. The quiz and interview preparation at the end of each lesson helps to increase the confidence level. The instructors are very attentive in answering to questions.

Shalini, Vancouver, BC, Email:

Excellent course, well organized and conducted, and memorable. It had thoughtful theories, models, many quality assessments and tests. The whole process was really interesting and engaging. The amount of provided help and confidence was tremendous. All these gave me strong support going forward in my career… My only advice to anybody doing it in the future would be to go in with an open mind, be prepared to read Units more than one time, get stuck in, accomplish tasks and finally, as the result, to develop perfect QA skills!!!! Overall, it was very competent, actionable and informative experience. Highly recommended.

Dmitry, Burnaby, BC, Email:

I have just completed Hitek Computer School’s course in Software Quality Assurance. The course has taught me valuable skills that I have immediately put into practice in my role as a Quality Assurance Analyst. I thoroughly enjoyed the course. The materials were easy to read and well structured. The distance learning really suited me as I work full time, but I found that I still had plenty of time to get the required assignments completed on time. The instructor coaching and support were excellent during the course, through the internship, and until I got my job position. The internship program offered by Hitek helped me gain real work experience and further helped me secure a position with reputed organization. Thanks so much! I strongly recommend this course for anyone who wants to succeed in IT.

Preeti, Surrey, BC, Email:

The course is very organized and contains only information you’ll need in your practical life as a Software Tester. Instructors are very helpful and responsive and know what they are doing, that’s for sure. I graduated in July 2014 and after 7 weeks of job searching after my fourth interview got the full time permanent position at as an SQA Engineer. This changed my life. Not in a financial way (I had pretty decent salary as a Procurement Analyst) but now I am doing what I like at work not AFTER work… I am happy. Thank You, HiTek!

Vladimir, Portland, OR, Email:

I am very grateful to my friend who recommended Hitek Computer School to me. I had a post graduate diploma in computer application from the back home country. However, I was not able to get a job after arriving Canada. After I enrolled I was able to get my first full time permanent job as a Software Tester just after 4 months. This  course offers a very comprehensive and a well-structured program with the practical assignments. The instructors are very knowledgeable, helpful and very quick to emails regarding any questions and concerns. I am happy that I chose Hitek school. I highly recommend “Software QA and Software Testing” to those who want to start their career in a well-paid IT sector.

Sonika, Vancouver, BC, Email:

If you really want to change your career and to work in a nice, professional environment in less than in a year – then Hitek Computer School is the right choice for you. I was an online student. The course is very organized and contains only information that you will need in your practical work. The course load is intense, so be ready to devote a lot of time for studying if you are really serious about getting a new career in the IT field. It took me 6 months to complete the CF109 Software QA and Software Testing course. I found a job a few weeks after receiving my certificate. The material is easy to read and well structured. The practical part is awesome. You will do a lot of practical assignments and get real skills needed for the job. Instructors are very professionals and supportive. Thanks so much for all their help. I will recommend this course for anyone who wants to succeed in IT.

Maryna, Burnaby, BC, Email: 

I highly recommend this course because the syllabus is designed in such a way that people from non-IT background can also choose this to change their career. Well structured assignments, timely support, and proper feedback are really appreciable. The internship is a part of this course and helped me to gain Canadian IT field experience, which is really a bonus when I started the job search. After completing this course, I got a job as a Software tester. Thank you Hitek!

Manju, Delta, BC, Email:

I never thought that Hitek Computer School could change my life in the way I became ‘live’ again. Even though I had some experience being QA in the past in my home country, here I gained necessary knowledge required to become ‘expert’ on the Canadian market. Automation and an internship with real companies this is what I needed for success. Hitek Computer School not only provided with both but always kept track on my achievements and gave me very valuable advice. It does take the time to succeed but if you have a dream, it will come true as you go with Hitek School!!!!

Natalia, Abbotsford, BC, Email:

I would recommend Hitek’s QA program to anyone who is interested in finding job as a software QA.

It also include excellent lessons preparing students for job interviews. Their customer service as an online school was very good. They always responded to my questions kindly and promptly.

Mojdeh, Delta, BC, Email:

I’m very grateful for this course. The course is very well structured and understandable. I see that you are constantly adding and changing the content of lessons, ‘keeping your finger on the pulse’.

Thanks to your course I’m already working as a QA Analyst. I wish You and your project to achieve all possible heights!!!

Alexander, Burnaby, BC, Email:

A comprehensive course with clear instructions, valuable information and lots of practice. This course helped me develop skills and knowledge relevant to professionals in my field and find a job very quickly. Most importantly, questions asked in job interviews, are covered in the course. I enrolled in Hitek school 3 months ago. Today, I have a well paid job. Thank You HItek!

Natalya, Burnaby, BC, Email:

I do not regret for having this training. This is the best training I could have: a real hands-on training. This is what I needed. Hitek Computer School and staff are amazingly very organized and disciplined. Before my enrollment I asked many questions to staff to see whether I was doing the best thing or I was not at the wrong place. Every single question was clearly answered. Everything I was promised was realized, with the possibility to customize the training. I thank you so much!
The courses are very well structured. Every single course let you to reach its objective at the end of each course by the accomplishment of your assignments. The contents of courses are concisely designed in the way you can easily understand the matter. There is not any useless phrase/literature in the courses. Even if you are francophone like me, with a minimum of English skill, you will not have any problem to understand the content or jargon of the courses. However, every time you have questions, the staff is there to answer any of your questions. All the time the instructors have been available to answer my questions on the basis of there is no dumb question. Also, they assisted me with writing my resume and cover letter before internship and will do so after the internship, as a part of my training. Finally, taking the training on-line let me studying in the comfort of my home and on my own pace.
It was important for me to have an internship. I was promised an internship when I enrolled, and after I submitted my last assignment, an internship was ready the next day for me and was put in contact with a company. I found this training efficient and fabulous so I am confident that at the end of my internship I will get a job without any problem: I am positive. And I strongly recommend Hitek Computer School to everyone interested in SQA & Software Testing training. Thank you again, Hitek, your are professionals!

Herve, Gatineau, QC, Email:

I completed the Software Quality Assurance and Software Testing program a bit more than a year ago. I had no previous technical experience and I found the content of the course very informative and interesting with great examples and practical tasks. The subject matter was covered thoroughly; the instructors were always helpful and knowledgeable. Now, I work in a small Vancouver-based IT company and can state that a lot of the content, processes and procedures that I was taught in Hitek are used within my workplace. This course became a good start for my new career in Canada, so I would definitely recommend it.

I would like to thank all your team for your help and patience provided during those months I was trying to learn something new and completely different from what I usually used to do.

Eugene, Victoria, BC, Email:

When I moved to Canada, my main goal was to find an interesting job in IT area. The Software Quality Assurance Course from Hitek Computer School helped me adjust my knowledge to local requirements, receive new skills and – one of the most important things – get internship, after which I was able to receive valuable references from a local employer. I really recommend this course to people who are interested in working in QA. I also want to thank instructors for their great job.

Natalia, Burnaby, BC

Hitek Computer School course material and assignments were so practical oriented and is designed such that it covered all the fundamental areas that a good tester should be familiar with. Preparing Resume and Interview questions were the most helpful section and it gave me an idea of what employers expect from the interview candidate. Additionally, Internship provided me hands on experience. I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested in Software testing. Thanks a lot!

Bhavana, Victoria, BC

Hitek Computer School provides excellent training in software testing and QA and has one of the most affordable prices for onsite and online courses. Those courses are being updated frequently to suit evolving IT industry. Instructors are very knowledgeable, respond fast to inquiries, and willing to assist in many ways for you to succeed. I graduated from taking the main CF109 online course, and after my internships (which were set up by Hitek Computer School as well), I was able to get a job right away as Software Tester & QA and Support. I am highly recommending to take classes from Hitek Computer School, either to start your career in software testing or to enhance your knowledge and continue your education in the amazing field of computer science.

Igor, Denver, CO

I thoroughly enjoyed the course designed by Hitek Computer School. The tutorials gave me a strong base and allowed me to practice what I learned via practical assignments. The feedback provided by the mentors was very helpful and they were always quick to reply to my questions.  I was very confident at my interview and got a job a month after completing the course. I highly recommend this course to all who are interested in software testing.

Jinu, Surrey, BC

Hitek Computer School provides excellent training for a career in Software Quality Assurance and Software testing. The course material is up-to-date, systematic, and well written. The assignments are very intelligently designed and extremely interesting – makes one want to do more! The instructors who are experts in the field are very quick in marking assignments and they provide useful feedback. This course also provides hands-on practice with various tools. Within a very short space of time I learedt so many different tools I cannot even imagine. I am happy I did this course. I recommend it!

Krishna, Ottawa, ON

The course of Software Quality Assurance offered by the school is the best that I could find. Looking back, I can tell that the course covers absolutely everything that is necessary to find a job in the industry. Besides theory, the course contains lots of practical exercises, assignments and quizzes after each lesson. Lessons are carefully crafted, and contain a lot of information in compressed, but easy to understand form, even for students without previous programming experience. The course not only covers manual and automation testing and most popular tools, but the whole QA process. It also gives you excellent resources to research on your own and get knowledge in database development, UNIX operating system, different models of software development practices and such. Very important part of the course is teaching you how to make a good resume, cover letter, how to behave during an interview and possible interview questions. I found this a very valuable experience as I had 7 interviews in my first 2 weeks after finishing the course, and was able to find the job. 90% of questions asked by the employers were covered in the course. Finally, I would like to thank people from Hitek School for their effort. Good job, guys.

Alex, Vancouver, BC

This course has exceeded my expectations. Comprehensive theoretical material, excellent practice, great career tips, and such a caring attitude! Within a few months after finishing the course, I have sent around 30 resumes, had 3 interviews, and got a full-time job as a Software QA Analyst. Thank you, Hitek! Good luck, future testers!

Natalia, Toronto, ON

I took the course for six months and after a month later, I got a full time position as a quality analyst. It is a great experience to study this online software testing course. The instructors are nice and very helpful.

Eva, Richmond, BC

I must say, I had a large dose of doubts about this course at the beginning. I feared that even if the course was good, how easy would it be for a mid-aged woman to change careers and find a job? I started searching for jobs immediately after graduation while still finishing my internship provided by the school. Within first month, I had 2 interviews and got a job offer after the second one. Looking back now on my experience with Hitek Computer School, I must say that the software testing training they provide is more than adequate. There is a lot of theory and exams, but the real highlight of the learning process in Hitek is the large amount of practical assignments that give students practical skills in testing. Throughout the process I always felt that the teachers at Hitek were cheering me on from start to finish, and they were ready to assist me in any problem that I had. That meant a lot for me, and it encouraged to continue in times of difficulty. Thank you!

Helen, Toronto, ON

Hitek computer school was an awesome choice. After searching on internet for weeks to find a decent online school, I found their website and after reading and sampling I had a good vibe about the creators of that school. So, I enrolled and began my studies. I really enjoyed the precision of information, tests and practical skills this program allowed me to develop. I studied at home, during hours convenient for me. I learned and practiced exactly what is needed to get a job in this profession. I also liked the support and help with resume. Getting a job was easier that I had expected.

Tanya, Toronto, ON

I was really happy to find out that the Course contained not just theoretical and practical parts, but also really big and full chapter to help you get ready a Resume, Cover Letter and the most important – an Interview Questions. Speaking about the first part (theory and practice) I would say it’s very easy to learn. Speaking “easy” I don’t mean it’s not serious, but it gives you a chance to go through it step by step and finally -you get understanding of basic principles and methods of testing.

Second part of the course – “Test Automation” is different from the other lessons – some programming experience would be an asset. But even without one everybody can get basic knowledge and skills to start working with Automation tool, and it’s really great and interesting opportunity! The course is written in really clear and gradual manner, so you’ll feel confident, doing it step by step.Try to do every task several times (even if it works fine from the first) cause it will give you good understanding of principles tool’s work. Now, after graduation and getting a job I can say that the course was just great! On the one hand it gave me enough knowledge and skills to start working, one the other hand – I’ve got excellent training to be ready for an Interview. So if you decide to become a Tester – don’t hesitate – you’ve found the best course to make you ready for it!

Anna, Coquitlam, BC, Email:

Taking this course has helped me to start a new career in IT. The course is great for people who are new in IT or testing. It’s great because it gives not only knowledge, but experience in software testing and quality assurance services. Also, I could not have appreciated the interview training part of the course any more. I will recommend this course to anyone who seriously consider making Software quality assurance his/her new career turn.

Veronika, Burnaby, BC

I found the content to be well structured and organized, providing me with a solid, practical foundation in Software Testing. The course really came to life with practical assignments and quizzes, both fun and challenging and making sure I was absorbing the content. I would definitely recommend this course!

Peter, Denver, CO

This course is very well structured and the lessons are presented in simple language that is easy to understand. It gives you a deep knowledge and understanding of software testing methodologies, as well as prepares you for a job interview. The most important thing is that you not only get good theoretical knowledge, but real software testing experience, which is essential for future work. The big advantage of this course is that while having a full time job I was able to study at my own pace. Although I was enrolled in an online version of the course, I got all the help and support I needed from the course instructor to successfully complete it. I recommend this course to everyone who really thinks about a career in software testing. smile

Dmitry, Burnaby, BC

The course was well prepared, organized and compiled. The instructors were well-qualified and helpful. It’s worth it to get involved in that online course. Thanks a lot!

Edward, Toronto, ON

It was important for me to be able to study at my own pace and never feel pressure or stress to meet any deadlines. This allowed me to have as much time as I needed to fully understand the material as well as keep my other daily activities. The instructor, who was supportive and knowledgeable, helped me so much whenever I need throughout the course. And the greatest thing is that I found a job in only 3 weeks after graduation!

Karina, Coquitlam, BC

In general the course was great, the content was impressive and the way the information was presented was simple, straightforward and easy to understand. I think the best thing in the course were the practical assignments, which were exactly what I hoped and expected with an online course. Nice job! Thanks!

Marina, Portland, OR

Hi all! I really recommend taking the Testing Software Applications course. It gives students the necessary experience and knowledge in testing and QA. The school can be a good start or an upgrade of your career. Oleg really cares for his students during the course and even afterwards, and provides all the essential materials and information. It is very exciting to be a tester. You help build the best flawless software.

Natasha, Vancouver, BC

Hello all! ‘Software QA and Software Testing’ is the only decent QA course I was able to find in Vancouver and area. It is a well delivered and it covers all the important part of the QA process. The learning process is well built and allows you to easily navigate through the terms and definitions. The major advantage of this course is that we did a lot of practical assignments. We were introduce to a real defect-tracking tool and tested an application full of errors. It was excellent opportunity to work almost as the real testers at the real work place. I actually finally understood what it takes to be a tester. I started my job hunt in early July, had a few interviews and finally received a job offer only within 4 weeks after the completion of the course. I truly appreciate all the effort our instructor invested into my classmates and me. If you want more feedback from me about this course, please do not hesitate contacting me.
