    I have an interview with Train2Game on Thursday about applying for a games testing course. The interviewer is going to come to my house, has anyone done this before and does anyone know what type of questions they will ask?

    If you do about of googling you can find quite a bit about Train2Game and their 'interviews'.

    Bear in mind that the 'interviewer' may be, in fact, a salesman - I wouldn't sign anything while he's in your house.

    Game testing course? I never heard of a course to become a game tester, to my knowledge - you apply directly to a gaming developer or join an agency. All you do is play their game 50-100 times then write a detailed report..hardly need a course for it.


    Game testing is almost always used as a job to open the door to do 3d art, programming, game design etc.

    Doing the course will not put you in any better position.

    A waste of money. All their resources are available online, and the people who are on the course only say good things about it because they'd look like idiots after spending £5000 on a course that isn't recognised in industry.

    I don't know why you'd even need a course to do games testing to be honest: most companies test internally in their dev department. They will come to your house and pressure you to sign the forms as they have with everyone else. :/

    All in all: if you're really interested have a look at options that aren't going to cost you so much money and give you very little help. Message some game companies and ask them what sort of experience or qualifications they look for. Good luck

    I cancelled the meeting anyway when I found out how much they money ask for, I didn't trust the guy on the phone, he kept calling like 3 times a day and seemed a bit shady and desperate.

    Lol I wouldn't have even bothered if I knew the price of the course.
