I'm a beginner on software testing issue.
Can you recommend me some courses and centers - giving training on designing test cases, developing test plans, white-box testing, unit testing, integration testing, etc.- that me and my colleagues can attend..

I need to disagree here. When projects have bad habits, it's always a help to try to put SQA processes in place. Anything at all is better than nothing.
One example might be defects.
Say the process is to "holler" over the wall when you find a bug, wait for it to be fixed, re-test and go on.
A very small SQA process that's possible to put in place is to jot down a couple of details about what you found and what was done about it. All you need for that is a piece of paper, little time and virtually no cost, but the end result is that you have a test log and will be able to produce some metrics at the end of the project.
That's a LOT of help even if implemented in the middle of a project. And it will prove to the project team that there is some value to processes for the next one.
