Software testing is a critical component of the software development cycle and therefore a high priority for Information Technology (IT) companies. Today, the demand for Software Testers in our region and worldwide is vast. 

The McKenzie College Software Testing diploma program provides students with the main concepts, processes, tools and skills necessary to complete professional and compliant software testing in a test environment. In addition to working on projects that reinforce skill acquisition, students will have an opportunity to gain real world experience during an Internship with local companies.  

The curriculum will also prepare individuals to acquire industry-recognized certification in quality assurance testing.

Graduates from this program will be qualified for entry-level software testing positions in the Information Technology (IT) quality testing industry. 

My favourite aspect of McKenzie is that I get to learn new things every day. Each day the instructors reinforce past material and deliver new, relevant material.
