Here's what Forte Knowledge graduates have to say


After graduation, I was offered a four-week internship with the help of Forte Knowledge and it was a great experience. Then I started working as a QA Analyst. I like this job and am very happy I decided to take the QA manual testing course with Forte Knowledge!

Alla Perepelytsia, QA Automation Engineer at Avanade

A very well put together class. The teachers and staff at Forte Group and Forte Knowledge really try and prepare you for the workforce. I took the class just for a better understanding of the manual and automation testing fields and am very glad that I did. The recruiters at Forte Group are very pleasant to speak with and can make sessions like resume preparation fun.

Shishir Gupta, Lead QA Analyst at Assurant

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 role and providing vital knowledge of industry standards. The Forte staff regularly checked in our progress to ensure our success. They also assisted in structuring my resume, which led to my first role as a test engineer for SG interactive.

Modesto Rosario, System Integration Engineer Lead at Kapsch TrafficCom North America

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.
