    In order to study in community colleges you don't need GRE (That's only applicable for graduate school in some universities. George Mason U doesn't require GRE in many of their courses). However, you may run into TOEFL request in order to study in the USA (again it might be dependent on the college itself). As per as Community College goes, your best bet might be NVCC aka NOVA. Usually community colleges are county based but NVCC seemed to cover a wide range of counties/areas.

    NVCC Programs: nvcc.edu/catalog/cat2016/academics/programs/default.aspx

    As per certification course in software testing, I'm not aware of any in NVCC. CTFL you can study at home and complete it. Although I would also suggest to look into other certifications as well since the software testing field is over saturated these days (I'm a tester myself and going into cybersecurity).

    Look into the top paying IT certificates: globalknowledge.com/us-en/content/articles/top-paying-certifications/

    Good luck in your journey.
