Short description:

Our goal is to reduce the shortage in adequate technical software quality profiles by training people to become specialists during an ambitious 40-weeks swITch to IT training track.

After receiving an in-depth training on IT basics and software quality (Bootcamp Professional Testing & Bootcamp Test Automation), our trainees kick-start their career as an Agile Software Quality Engineers.

But for those with the right attitude and motivation who really want to become a true BrighT-shaped profile, we have created a challenging 40-weeks swITch to IT training track.
This track redirects and schools the trainees into testing experts who both understand business needs and shape the company’s future while working in agile teams, which requires T-shaped Quality Engineers with a technical skill set.

The training track is a combination of online self-learning with exercises and classroom trainings. For both, our swITch experts are at the trainees disposal to answer questions and review the exercises (incl. feedback, tips&tricks, etc.).
