    Great introduction to Product Management

    I really enjoyed this course, and the instructors were awesome. They really devoted a lot of time to discussion of the topics and provided real world examples. The other students in my class were also really insightful about their own experiences and this contributed to to the healthy learning environment. 

    A downside to this is that we didn't have time to cover all of the material, so I would suggest to the instructors to plan the courses a bit better to accommodate time for both...

    Great learning experience!

    The educators at BrainStation have been phenomenal. The whole learning experience from start to finish, has been amazing. 

    I started this bootcamp with zero knowledge about any lang/framework, and I would say I have a pretty good grasp of it now (even though I still have a lot to learn). This 3 month bootcamp is very intense but I did find it very manageable with the help from the education team. They're very supportive, knowledgeable, and genuinely are there to see you succeed wh...

    Invaluable knowledge, unmatched elsewhere

    Starting over at 41 has been quite daunting. I have had my eye on Brainstation for months and finally made taking a certification there possible. I am so happy I did because I learned more in ten months than I did in college. The instructor answered any questions we had along the way and he gave real-time, industry examples. I'm so grateful to Brainstation for showing me that starting over isn't as scary as I thought. I cannot wait to take more courses!

    Fun, fast-paced learning!

    While this was the fastest 10 weeks, each week was packed with great information and insights about digital marketing that I will be using in my day-to-day position. I took this course to fill in some gaps as I had switched industries during the pandemic, I feel like I have learned what I needed to continue excelling in my career. I'm looking forward taking the SEO course next!

    Great learning experience

    I took part in the UX Design Bootcamp at Brainstation and had such a great experience. The teachers and the learning experience were excellent and we got to work on industry projects. I came out of the course with 3 case-worthy projects and plenty of new knowledge under my belt. 

    The pace of the course is fast and requires motivation, but I received great support and lots of time from the teachers. It's was also great to get the opportunity to work cross-collaboratively with Devs ...

    Loved my course!

    I took the Search Engine Marketing course a year ago and I really enjoyed the content! Our instructor made a point to support every student individually despite his busy work schedule. The final project was more work than I expected - so I suggest getting started as soon as you can.

    Starting my first UX role a week after my graduation!

    Antonello and Taylor are incredible educators and their attention to students is second to none. For those coming from non-designers backgrounds (which is majority of the students). The educators spend a lot go 1-on-1 time ensuring each student is developing their skills and confidence. Their industry knowledge and understanding of platforms is valuable and provides students with confidence that when completing the course students will be using the very latest design tools.

    Challenging but helpful

    I enjoyed the community, and the teaching was able to get me to a good level of knowledge after such as short time. I feel far more confident going into the industry, as I have learned what the differences are such as not using Jupiter notebooks
