    Quality Assurance

    Quality Control

    Key Focus

    Focuses on preventing defects in a software product or service. QA is process-oriented.

    The main focus is on correcting defects. Therefore, it is product-oriented. 


    Process edits and design, continuous improvement practices, and process development.

    Manual and automated testing, inspections, reviews, etc. 


    It is applicable during all stages of product/software development.

    It is applicable only after the production stage is complete. 


    To create a defect-free software product or service.

    To avoid defects in the finished product. 

  • What skills are needed for a career in Quality Assurance?

    To establish a rewarding career in Quality Assurance, you need the following skill sets:

    • In-depth understanding of software development

    • Familiarity with testing tools, including Selenium, Apache, JIRA, etc. 

    • Problem-solving skills

    • Risk analysis

    • Test planning skills

    • Analytical thinking and reasoning skills

    • Test case design skills

    • Expertise in scripting and programming

    • Ability to work with teams

    • Familiarity with Agile frameworks

    • Time management skills 

  • Why Choose Manual QA?

    Manual quality assurance is widely chosen for its ease of use and efficiency. Skilled professionals can perform manual QA testing without the need for scripting or coding. Similarly, on the other hand, automated testing involves complex tools, scripting, and coding, and even after all these, there is a probability of missing underlying defects. Manual testing has the least chance of quality compromise, and the accuracy rates are much higher. Therefore, the end results of manual testing are much more predictable and result in the satisfaction of end users. 

  • Do I need coding experience to become a QA Engineer?

    To become a skilled QA Engineer, it is mandatory to acquire coding skills. Coding abilities are crucial for performing quality and software testing; hence, mastering one or more coding languages is crucial. Some commonly used coding languages in quality assurance and software testing include Java, JavaScript, Python, SQL, and Ruby. 

  • I don't have experience in tech. Is this QA Course right for me?

    It is not a great idea to enter the software industry without technical experience or proper background. As the job roles in quality assurance and software testing involve core technical tasks, you must have the desired technical knowledge and skills to perform such crucial duties. 

    If you are a complete beginner from a non-tech background wanting to enter the tech industry, precisely the software testing field, you can seek help from comprehensive learning programs that help you start with basics, develop a strong foundation, acquire skills, and eventually get ready for the competitive job industry. A beginner with no technical knowledge may take years of learning and practice to gain appropriate knowledge and adapt skills, but the results will be all worth it in the end.
