Practical Training in our Development Department

The Quality Assurance Bootcamp at Real Time College is a comprehensive and practical course that was developed by our Development and Training Center based on our extensive experience in QA and software development.
The QA course is highly recommended as it serves as a gateway to the IT industry today.

Software testing is an integral part of software engineering and software quality assurance. Therefore, the QA course is a crucial and significant step for anyone interested in entering the IT field, technology companies, and product development.

In the last decade, a wide range of students enrolled in our QA course. 80% of those students successfully completed the course, and 100% of the students who completed the final project in the Development Department of RT College found a job in the IT industry!

We designed the online quality assurance bootcamp syllabus to meet practical requirements as specified in numerous meetings by technology companies. As a student, you will have access to recorded lectures and presentations that will appear on the Student Portal, as well as preparation for software testing international certification exams.‎

A full online QA bootcamp is made up of two parts:

A full QA bootcamp lasts a year, during which students can reach us every day. Towards the end of the program, the student will begin a practical training period in our Development department as well as a job placement process.

1‎.‎ Software Tester QA Course:‎

  • Includes step-by-step instruction, from introduction to the software development world and on to understanding research and development methodologies and the various types of testing.‎
  • At the same time, students will become familiar with the Linux operating system, Bash script writing, virtualization, network protocols, python automation scripts, and working with databases.‎
  • Students will use professional tools for bug tracking, such as JIRA, and will acquire extensive knowledge in writing reports and documents such as STR (Software Test Report), STD (Software Test Description), and STP (Software Test Plan).‎

2‎.‎ Coding and Automation Course:‎

The QA Automation course is our next step. During the course, students learn more about the concepts of automated testing. Automated testing is based on tests that have been previously run and the implementation of tools that can execute them automatically. This is a highly efficient approach, especially when you need to run many similar tests.‎

  • The course offers a complete guide to writing test automation programs, starting from the basics of programming and key programming concepts, through object-oriented programming (OOP) concepts, to popular programming languages required in the market like Python and Java. Additionally, students learn how to write automation tests using SELENIUM, an advanced tool for testing applications and web interfaces.‎
  • In addition, students become familiar with code version control tools, such as Git. By the end of this section, students leave with a "toolbox" that allows them to become professional software testing developers.‎
  • To become a proficient QA professional and develop skills for advancement in the industry, it is essential to understand Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) processes. During the QA course, students gain a deep understanding of CI/CD processes and the ability to write code for test execution, utilizing logical thinking and advanced tools of DevOps methodologies and culture.‎
  • As we progress through the curriculum, we cover different options for writing scripts and creating pipelines in Git, as well as more advanced tools used in DevOps, such as Jenkins. At RT College, we know how to provide solutions and create QA multi-talented professionals with knowledge in DevOps.‎

Software Testing Tools

In order to become a software tester, you need to be familiar with the professional tools and technical skills that are used in the field of software testing, as well as gain practical experience. The QA course will teach you to work with bug documentation and management tools, ready-to-use automation platforms, programming languages and scripts, and databases. In addition, you will learn how to work with server-related tools.‎

QA test management is a crucial aspect of software testing. Test management tools help you track all the test cases written by your team. It is important to be familiar with and know how to use these solutions since most companies use them.‎

If you aim to become an automated software tester after a few years in QA testing, you must have a strong command of the tools of the trade and possess knowledge and practical experience. Being knowledgeable in scripting languages like Python, JavaScript, and Bash scripts, as well as languages like Java and C#, is advantageous if you are seeking a career in QA.‎

Tracking defects and the product life cycle are crucial aspects of software testing. It is difficult to manage and track defects if you do not use the right tools. The entire team should be aware of defects, including all stakeholders in the project.‎

Success in the ISTQB (International Software Testing Qualifications Board) certification exam demonstrates significant knowledge for candidates in the local and international market in the field of QA.‎

What is the ISTQB certification for software testing?‎

The ISTQB (International Software Testing Qualifications Board) sets the international standard for software testing certification. ISTQB exams are internationally recognized and serve as a professional accreditation for software testers.‎

Whether you are just starting your career in software testing or have been in the field for several years, obtaining ISTQB certification offers significant advantages:‎

  • Industry Recognition: ISTQB is a globally recognized certification, which enhances your credibility and marketability as a software tester.‎
  • Professional Competence: The certification validates your knowledge and skills in software testing, providing evidence of your expertise.‎
  • Career Advancement: ISTQB certification can open doors to new opportunities and higher-level positions within the software testing industry.‎
  • Global Opportunities: ISTQB certification is widely accepted internationally, allowing you to pursue job opportunities in different countries.‎
  • Standardized Practices: ISTQB promotes standardized practices in software testing, ensuring a common understanding and language among professionals in the field.‎
  • Networking: Being part of the ISTQB-certified community enables you to connect with other professionals and stay updated on industry trends and best practices.‎
  • Employer Confidence: Employers value ISTQB certification as it demonstrates your commitment to professional development and quality assurance.‎

Overall, ISTQB certification offers a valuable boost to your career and provides you with the skills and recognition needed to excel in the field of software testing.‎

What is the role of a software tester?‎

The main role of a QA software tester is to ensure that the final product meets the company's quality standards. In general, detail-oriented professionals are responsible for the development and application of tests, finding and solving problems, and the guaranteeing overall satisfactory results. These tests touch on many aspects and stages of the product development, such as planning, monitoring and controlling, user experience, and product design.‎

At the same time, a QA software tester must remain engaged in the support and ongoing performance evaluation stages of product development. Therefore, it is no wonder that QA software testers play a central role in many technology and product development companies.‎
