Without any training, you are being as reasonable as the QA testers who
are apprehensive about writing without any training. If you can get some
training (or even lose guidance from the testers), I think it's a great
opportunity to broaden your skills, get to know the product better, and
make yourself more employable. Unless, of course, you wind up hating it,
then ignore everything I wrote.
