    Great Foundational Start

    I had no previous experience in UX/UI Design. The course was awesome and I learned so much. All of my interactions with my teams and the staff were amazing, and there was lots of support throughout the course completion and client project completion. I'm so glad that this bootcamp allowed me to get some real client project experience. It just sucks because I paid 6,000 dollars total for the Foundations course and Career Jumpstart, just for one first interview to come out of it, aside fro...

    Best Investment I've ever made!

    Not only does Avocademy do a wonderful job in their foundations course to prepare your skills for real world design projects, but the access and support for mentors is one of the most valuable resources I've ever had. They have a variety of mentors available for all areas of your foundational and career development needs. From general reinforcement and positivity, to real world experience, to career guidance in your job hunt, they will guide you for any decisions you have to make. I woul...

    Switching from Healthcare

    I graduated with an Associates Degree in Radiologic Technology in 2017. I loved being a CT Technologist but COVID rocked my world and certain perspectives changed and I no longer had the drive I once had. I searched long and hard for the right BootCamp because I'm sure you've seen a million that guarantee this and that but are super expensive. It's a daunting experience trying to find the right BootCamp that isn't just in it for the money. What drew me to Avocademy was that it was the mo...

    Avocademy Review

    I enrolled in Avocademy’s UX/UI Foundation course in May 2023 to learn the foundations to become a UX/UI Designer and they gave me that plus more. Everything was clearly organized and laid out for me. I knew what I needed to do, when I needed to complete work by, how long it would take and most importantly how easily and quickly I could receive support from mentors who do the job I wish to have. Without any background in design or UX/UI I was able create work I am proud of and expand on ...

    Design focused & leaves room for independence

    I loved the Avocademy UX/UI Foundations course. You really are learning so much in a condensed amount of time so you need to be someone who can manage your time well and enjoys independent learning, I took a bit longer to finish the course because of my lack of good time management skills but they were so helpful to pushing me through to completing my project. With that said, the course material is thorough and consistently updated. The mentors are readily available to give you feedback ...

    I'm so happy I chose Avocademy

    Changing careers can be very scary especially when someone like me has been a stay home mother for the last five years. Choosing Avocademy was the best decision I could have made for my future. They gave me the guidance and the confidence to step into this next phase of my career! I am thrilled to have the skills I do under my belt. I chose this program for the real-world experience - because, after all, that is what everyone wants! The mentorship was incredible and I felt their help the...

    Amazing

    You enter scared but you leave very excited to explore more about UX design. By far one of the best steps I have taken for my growth as a person. Just take your time and do not rush in and out of it. Mentors will always be there to help and support you. If you feel overwhelmed they are always there to give you 1 on 1 support to better your understanding.

    T’was simply SUBLIME

    I have great respect for Maca and the mentors who made Avocademy possible, as well as what it is today.

    I who had no prior background in UX/UI found great success and had a fun time learning and gaining its basic fundamentals. 

    It should come as no surprise that there’s more to know and learn. Maca, aware of this fact, does a great job in encouraging those who come through to maintain their aptitude for learning and growing. “Always ask why,” you’ll hear her say.

    I had a fantastic experience!

    When I enrolled into Avocademy's UX/UI Foundations course, I honestly had very little knowledge of what I was getting into, but the coursework and mentorship structure was incredible! By the end of the program, I decided that I loved UX/UI so much that I signed up for their Career Jumpstart course which I just started this week!

    Supportive,well-rounded,inspiring

    I had the pleasure to get my UX/UI Design certification through the Avocademy program. My experience was great , I love the details in the content they provide us to ensure we understand how to move forward with any activity. The mentors go above and beyond to make sure you are on track and are able to explore to new methods. I myself found it easier to always ask mentors for help and reassurance that my design is on track. Thanks to the program and mentors I found new ways to design. Th...

    This experience has been amazing!

    Avocademy Foundations course has changed my life! As a veteran teacher, I was hesitant to pursue something so outside and beyond my comfort zone. But I took the plunge, and I did it! It took me about three months to finish the foundations course, and I'm currently a member of the Career Jumpstart program where I'm learning advanced skills and getting to work on actual client jobs. What I appreciated the most was the feedback from the Mentors that Avocademy has. I really needed to hear fr...

    DO NOT TAKE THIS COURSE

    I want to kick things off by saying that I had a blast during this course, and the staff was top-notch... at least, until graduation came around. The CJ course rolls out this job guarantee program, promising that if you tick all the job requirements and still don't land a job by your graduation date, you're off the hook for the course fees. Unfortunately, this is where things took a nosedive.
    I went through the entire course, checked off all the job prerequisites, but gues...
