Exploring free alternatives

One of the most promising aspects of online courses and guides is of course the ones that come at no cost. And make no mistake: some of them are great. However, when it comes to free online education it’s important to keep a realistic approach.

Are there high-quality free courses for QA testing? Of course, in fact, you can apply for free webinars right here at Test Pro, and many of the previous blogs and guides will also make important learning tools for your future career.

However, it’s also important to understand that anybody can now make a course online and advertise it as something great. So keep this in mind: Look for certified and verified companies to know just how much stock you can place on their claims.

Beyond that, it’s also important to truly understand the real advantages and disadvantages of free courses and guides


  • There’s no monetary commitment, so you can try out the field without worries.
  • There are guides for almost anything you can think of, so you’ll never run out of reading material.
  • You can study at your pace.


  • If the course only has theoretical knowledge you won’t be able to build a portfolio.
  • Not all companies will accept all free certifications.
  • You might not have access to dedicated paid tools to practice with.

Opting for a dedicated course

For those who have already decided that they want a future in QA testing then taking a dedicated online course is the best option.

Take for example Test Pro’s own QA Manual Tester Bootcamp. This beginner-friendly course only takes 9 weeks and doesn’t require any coding background, and yet: it ensures wages of up to $50 an hour once the student has completed it.

The reason for its success lies both in the expertise of the Test Pro team, as well as the practical focus of the whole experience. Students will get real experience working on commercial and open-source testing projects and will be trained for interviews and job hunting. Making it so that they have all the tools to successfully get a job on top of all the theoretical know-how.

So if you are interested in making a change in your career and feel QA is your calling, feel free to apply today.


How beginner-friendly is the QA Bootcamp?

You can apply to the course and complete it even if you have zero coding experience. As long as you have basic computer skills, you have nothing to worry about.

Do online certifications help when applying for jobs?

If the certification comes from a reputable firm or company they will help your case. But a practical portfolio like the one our students build at the Bootcamp will grant even better results.
