Frequently Asked Questions

When does the next class start?

Upcoming classes will be updated periodically on the course section in our website.

Do I need to bring a laptop?

Yes, please bring your own laptop to class. We prefer a Mac but  Windows can be used as well. (The instructor will be using a Mac)

 

What is your admissions process?

Once you sign up from the website, an admissions counselor will contact you by email to schedule a call. Before you are admitted, we’ll sit down for an informal discussion on what motivates you, education background, work experience and general awareness in the IT field. From our experiences, we found many students who didn’t have any core programming skills to be able to learn and transition into professionals in the field

I have a day job. Can I still make time for this course?

Our classes take place on evenings on weekdays and daytimes on the weekends. The curriculum is designed to be part-time so that it does not interfere with anyone’s day-time commitments. During the end of the course, however, we ask students to dedicate additional time to reviewing coursework and project assignments

We are located in Long Island City in the Falchi Building, one block away from LaGuardia Community College We can be reached by the 7, N, R trains

I do not have a computer science background. Can I still take this course?

Technosoft’s program is designed for those new to software QA automation. You will start from basic test automation concepts to learning key Java programming fundamentals. There will be homework and in-class projects so that you get a chance to apply what you learn and trying things for yourself.

Although we do not assume any prior programming knowledge, it would be helpful for you to get a head-start by checking out the Java track on codecademy.

I am in the QA field but have no automation experience. How can this program help me?

Automation testing is starting to be considered an expected skill set in today’s software testing industry. The QA person should not only be experienced in manual testing, but he/she should also have the technical fundamentals to automate long regression testing for more test coverage at a shorter time.

In our classes, we will go over basic Java fundamentals and build projects using Selenium and Appium which are industry leading automation tools. Upon completion of the course, you can be sure that you are ready to be promoted or find another role elsewhere as an Automation Engineer/Software Engineer in  Test.

What about this program differs from other courses with similar offerings?

Our goal is to help you understand Software QA Automation end-to-end; not just specific core topics and selected interview questions. We do this by starting from the very basics to computer programming and showing you how an automation framework is implemented from scratch. Without real project experience, it is difficult to acquire the skills that you will need for building real products.

Specifically, our curriculum will cover the full software development lifecycle and how systems are designed. You will understand the role and responsibilities in a professional setting. You will get hands-on experience through our classwork and homework provided. Upon completion of the course, you will be assessed for our boot camp and internship programs based on your eligibility. All of this will be offered to you in addition to the classwork. In other words – you will learn what is needed to do a real Software QA Automation Engineer’s job.

Will I get a job after completing this course?

Your skills will be in high demand, and you’re future will be bright, but like most things in life, your prospective employment in the QA automation engineering world depends on how hard you work. If you consistently apply throughout the 16-week job marketing program and during your job search, then your chances look really good. You will also need to be well-prepared for your interviews. The good news is that we will be with you every step of the way. We don’t just teach you to code and build project, we also work with you on your resume, help you prepare for interviews, and connect you with job opportunities. We maintain relationships with a vast network of companies in the software development world as well as with our alumni base, which provides our students a variety of potential employment opportunities.
