  • Alla Perepelytsia
    QA Analyst at FGS Inc.
    I found out about Forte Knowledge from my friend who finished the manual testing course and was successfully employed as a QA Analyst. After doing some research I decided to take this course myself. I was very optimistic because I have heard only good things about the school. I decided to put it in all my time and effort and get the best grades, attendance. The class was interesting, we have learned the theory, practiced creating test cases, worked on a presentation. The teacher has a great personality so his classes were always interesting and never boring. After graduation I was offered a 4 week internship with the help of Forte Knowledge and it was a great experience. Then I started working as a QA Analyst and have been working for almost a month now. I like this job and am very happy I decided to take QA Manual course with Forte Knowledge!

    Between the Android training I took at Forte Knowledge and Forte’s consulting arm, I was quite confident that I would secure an Android Software Development position. The training increased my Android knowledge considerably, and I ended up accepting a job offer prior to the class finishing.

If you would like to learn how to develop Android Applications, I strongly recommend Forte Knowledge.

    I needed a career change and decided on transitioning into Quality Assurance. I was made aware of Forte through a friend and decided to enroll. The classes were informative and lively. Our instructor, Yemi, did a great job preparing the class for a testing roll and providing vital knowledge of industry standards. The Forte staff regularly checked in our progress and to ensure our success. They also assisted in structuring my resume which has led to a role as a test engineer for SG interactive.

  • Ernesto Rodriguez
    Product Manager at ContextMedia, Inc.
    I am now the first QA Analyst at ContextMedia. I wanted to let you know that this is highly due to Yuriy’s great instruction, and ability to integrate Real World Examples throughout each lesson. The information and examples I learned in class allowed for me to be promoted from within with the newly gained QA knowledge, instead of the business hiring someone else that is not as familiar with the core products. I look forward to finishing the class, and I just wanted to say thank you for your program and the opportunity that emerged as a result of taking this course.

    Forte Knowledge and Forte Group prepped me with all the tools I needed to get a job. The instructors and everyone else in the company were eager to help and were very accommodating.

  • Svetlana Deryuga
    Lead QA Analyst at FGS Inc.
    I think Forte Knowledge’s classes were very informative, containing a lot of examples from real life. Instructors chose up-to-date materials, worked well with the whole group, and were able to help us personally with any issues that occurred. When I started my interviews, I knew already what to expect and how to behave. Theoretical classes and experience gained during the internship made me confident and allowed me to easily answer both theoretical and practical questions. I received a couple of offers in the month after I finished classes. Now I work in the Chicago Board Options Exchange as a programmer/analyst. I started my work being fully prepared for my position. Due to my knowledge and skills, I became a competitive member of the team. Forte Knowledge’s QA courses helped me a lot to get my current job.
