QA usually means testing and only testing. Yet testing is a very expensive and ineffective method of assuring the needed quality levels. Testing is better used as a last resort, desperate attempt to assure quality. Quality Assurance is far more than 'test', and it can be far more cost-effective. 'Quality' is far more than 'bugs'. If you want real competitive quality, you probably have a lot to learn.

You will be introduced to a set of methods that are 10x more cost effective than test, and you will learn to perform an Agile Inspection.
