Video game testing is the easiest and most prevalent way that people enter the video game industry. No college education is required but specific skills and training help you get the interview and get the job. Classes in game testing should teach game testing principles, tasks and knowledge. Classes should teach you the theory and help you apply it so it becomes easy to do.

Make sure the author of the class is a true professional who has made a living and a career from it.

    I am almost fourteen years old. I have been playing video games ever since I was in the 2nd grade. Especially I have been playing games such as call of duty. I was wondering what the chances are of me being able to get a job as a video game tester. I am willing to take online courses for practice. Thank you so much for helping.

      Most Publishers want to work with people who are 18 or older for NDA reasons and being able to legally sign a NDA.
      If you want to break into the industry and you are 14, I would start learning all you can about video games. Build your own levels, participate in betas and go to any industry event you can get into. As far as a job goes, look at our jobs board, there are a lot of jobs listed for game testers. Let me know if you have any additional questions.
