Quality Assurance (QA) Specialist

280 Hours / 6-7 Months, Part Time Program

This part-time Quality Assurance (QA) Specialist program features expert instruction, hands-on projects, and a real connection to the industry to get graduates hired.

Software Developers are putting out new software products practically every day! However, they may find that having an additional specialist responsible for looking for bugs or problems enhances the overall software deployment experience. That’s where the role of a Quality Assurance (QA) Specialist comes in. 

A QA Specialist works with a wide variety of tech specialists to improve the quality and reduce the problems of a software product.  When the QA Specialist meticulously finds and fixes these problems, the eventual product released is more valuable to the customers that use it.
