Quality Assurance Engineer at Digitain Armenia

My professional success story begins with ACA, as here is where the groundwork for my new career was laid. The course featured the study of practical tools, which encompassed both theoretical and practical information. The mentor, Mariam, led the courses with a casual approach, which aided the accessible acquisition of knowledge. I started working as a quality assurance engineer at Digitain Armenia a few months after finishing the training.

The Manual QA course from ACA provides the knowledge required for success in that profession. During the lessons, material for practical work was distributed, which was then thoroughly studied and interpreted. Theoretical knowledge is therefore enhanced and made more understandable. Due to the specified lecture content and direct lesson structure, there are no unanswered questions at the end of each topic. I'm sure that ACA's Manual QA course was the best start for me to acquire a new profession and find a job in a new field.
