A new Test Automation class that may lead to employment.

The Instructor is Marina Leitman – Senior QA Director at DTCI Disney with 20+ years of industry experience. She supervises over 150 employees and manages the hiring and training processes of novice staff members in her team.
After successful completion of the class, the best students will be offered a job in her company.
Knowledge of automation or previous programming experience is not needed; you will start learning from scratch! During the course, you will be taught everything you need to know to get hired by Marina Leitman.
The skills you will acquire are universal to automation in any programming language, and you will be able to apply them to any framework.
Is it possible to get a job after this course? Yes! Coding is the same as writing. Basically, you start writing at the 1st-grade level, work up to middle school, go on to the high school level, and maybe become a Shakespeare. So, by association, this class will give you the basics, and you will be able to automate at the middle school level – but it will work! After that, everything will be in your hands: you can stop at this level or you can keep learning and progressing. There will be 12 lessons with unlimited after-class support.

Starting Date: March 1st, 2021. Lectures will be twice a week (Monday/Thursday at 5pm PST), with practical sessions on Tuesdays/Wednesdays at 6pm PST (to work on tasks, troubleshoot/solve problems).
Promotional price is $550
