QA Training online

You deserve the best education
QA School by Mentorpiece
is top QA training
from top mentors
And we're not just making empty claims:
  • 1
    Only QA mentors with 10+ years of IT experience
    Our team includes carefully selected mentors who are current technical managers at the largest global IT companies, who have 10 to 20+ years of experience, who are involved in hiring testers at their companies, and who know the QA market's latest requirements.
  • 2
    Only live classes with live feedback in groups of 15 people
    Our mentors do more than give you relevant theory.
    They adapt the course for each specific group, lead practical exercises, answer questions, guide students, check homework, and conduct exams.
    For this to work, our student groups are limited to 15 people, not the groups of 30-40 or even 300 students that some platforms organize. Our customer reviews indicate that this is really effective QA training.
  • 3
    Only by proving yourself in the real world
    A world-class QA expert's training cannot be limited to studying theory and completing classwork. The would-be professional tester must develop comprehensive knowledge and skills and apply them to challenges that are not contrived.
    That's why many of our courses include internships involving work on real projects. As a result, after completing our QA training, 85% of our graduates find employment.
At Mentorpiece (a portmanteau of 'mentor' and 'masterpiece'), we're confident that mechanically transferring skills to hundreds of people at a time won't give students what they need most to achieve a truly impressive IT career. Such an approach doesn't provide understanding.

That's why our seasoned QA mentors not only share skills and knowledge, but also convey an understanding of the profession's nuances, deep experience and best practices.

Consequently, the IT market gains conscientious professionals rather than mere employees.

Is there an objective indication of the quality of the Mentorpiece course?
Good question.
Students who are just entering the IT field are not always in a position to objectively assess the quality of the course. Even after graduation. It may take a year after they start employment before they can tell whether it was really the best and high-quality.
But it's a good sign that well-known IT companies with their own experienced in-house QA experts take advantage of the course.

QA mentor is testing… Tesla website (stream)
Lilia Urmazova / School Founder, Chief QA Expert
As QA mentors, we want to see the most thoughtful, motivated, and generally cool people in testing. But when you just think "Should I maybe try myself in testing?", it's hard to make a decision: after all, the idea of QA work is rather vague.

We close this gap. Together with you, online, we are going to test the functionality of some well-known service.

This is how the stream “QA-mentor is testing…” works:
1. The mentor takes some functionality of the experimental site and studies it. Without having any documentation (as it often happens on real projects), she makes up his own idea of how it should work.
2. The mentor writes a couple of test cases related to the functionality together with you online.
3. Runs ready-made test cases.
4. If something goes wrong - the mentor fills out a detailed bug report.

Participation is free, the stream is available on the YouTube channel.

Webinar: Requirements for a fresher tester: Why so?
Evgeny Lozovan / Java Automation Expert / Lead Test Automation Engineer at Grid Dynamics (US)
What is expected from a tester on the interview? Who is responsible for creating these requirements, how are they written? Why they look like that, and why can you meet different requirements in different companies? How the automated testers are interviewed, and is this enough to write a code to be hired?

Find out if it's yours: QA X-ray
Lilia Urmazova / School Founder, Chief QA Expert
Why do you need a QA-X-Ray?
People have different experiences, personalities, and life goals. Many of them want to change a profession and come to IT, and some of them, to software testing. Somebody read about the profession, watched videos, and got pieces of advice from friends and relatives. But as with any other profession, software testing is not for everybody. On the QA X-ray, we will discuss your personality and experience and then tell if the testing is yours or if some other profession suits you better?

How is the QA X-ray going?
1) 2-3 participants are talking about themselves (live)
2) They answer questions and solve logical tasks
3) The result, in the end, is if the software testing suits our participants

Everything is honest, if this is not your profession, we will tell you.

Participation is free. If you want to participate, write us by any channel.

The stream is available on the YouTube channel.

Master class: Try yourself as a QA (Any computer will do!)
Fedor Kulishov / Linux and Security Expert / Lead Security Expert at Acronis (Switzerland)
What is a tester typically doing? Obviously, finding the bugs and documenting them. But a good tester is able to find not only a surface bug, but also jump into an application and find problems insight, invisible for a regular user.

You can try to be a good tester and jump into a system with Fyodor Kulishov on the master class "Try yourself as a QA"

Participation is free. If you want to participate, write us by any channel.
