What you’ll learn

It’s not a bootcamp or an internship. You’ll be paid to learn. Through a combination of lectures, activities, group discussion, and hands-on labs, this intensive, comprehensive curriculum consists of 20 custom-created modules designed to teach all aspects of QE fundamentals. You’ll cover topics such as:

Test strategy and test case design


Agile development methodology and Scrum

Testing data and analytics pipelines

The role of the QE in modern teams

Native mobile app testing

Unit, API, and UI automation

Performance testing

CI/CD pipelines

And much more!

Who should apply

This program is designed for early career engineers, bootcamp graduates, or anyone looking to make a shift into a more challenging, rewarding field. There’s no ‘typical’ academy candidate. Previous academies have included people from widely diverse backgrounds and experiences. However, a working knowledge of at least one modern programming language (JavaScript, Python, C#, Java, TypeScript, etc.) is required.
