    I'm taking digital marketing at brainstation. I'm really enjoying it so far and learning a lot. I personally could go a tiny bit slower at times (i don't have much experience) but the instructors are understanding and are available for one-on-one clarification each class. so i'm not finding it too difficult to follow. better to have too much info than too little. what i really like about the course is the people. the instructors are really friendly and insightful and networking with the other students is an awesome added benefit. 

    Looking forward to the second half.

    We approached Brainstation and asked specifically if this course would give us the knowledge we needed to sell products online using Facebook, Google etc.  We were promised that not only would they deliver but would help us along the way with our project and services.  Unfortunately, this was not even close to what happened.  The class started out with 22 students and ended with 7 as the content was very vague and very disappointing to say the least.  I complained on behalf of myself and many of the students in the class that the content was not going deep enough and that they probably could have put the first six classes into one.  The instructors appear to have the knowledge but really are not imparting value to the class. The class is very new and the instructors very young, some of the people that are running Brainstation openly say that they have no experience and are learning on the job.  It is my suggestion that you stay away from this particular course until they understand it better themselves.  If you are looking for a basic overview this is a good course but if you are really looking for a good course that will really teach you how to market a product or service it is definately not for you and I would strongly suggest you look to another venue.

    Hi there, 

    We appreciate you sharing your feedback. 

    Our Digital Marketing part-time certificate course incorporates many elements like search engine optimization, search engine marketing, email marketing, social media marketing, brand strategy, analytics, and more to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of digital marketing and how to create their own integrated digital marketing campaign. 

    Students do learn relevant marketing tools, but this course covers a widespread topic. This is why we always recommend that before taking a course, you speak with a Learning Advisor to make sure it is the right fit for your goals. If students are looking to learn more specific tools, we offer specialized training courses including Google Analytics or Google AdWords training.

    I am currently taking the 'Intro to Web Development' class. The instructors are great and are putting a lot of effort into teaching the course. I am not so convinced by the Curriculum. It goes greatly into depth. I wish it would link each coding example with a practical example. I have absolutely no coding experience. It is honestly too fast/advanced for me for an intro course. Be prepared to do a lot of extra work at home. Unfortunately the courses are also on the higher end, when it comes to pricing. I am tempted to try another class as I like the environment. This class might just not be the right fit for me.

    I am enrolled in the Intro to iOS Development course and I love it! The structured classes and expereinced instructors makes learning Swift much more enjoyable. The class learning style gives students the ability to learn and solve REAL WORLD problems, which is applicable to our everyday lifestyles. The instructors are personable and can guide you in the right direction. So far I am loving my investment into the iOS course :)

    My experience with Brainstation has definitely been a positive one! While much of the information covered could probably be found by scavenging the Web, the structured format of this course and the method by which the instructors conveyed the material definitely expedited that process ten-fold. Concepts covered include: HTML, CSS, Javascript, Bootstrap. The laid-back class atmosphere and friendly instructors made asking questions very easy, and contributed to the productivity of the class. However, keep in mind that this course is only 3 hours per week, so if you're looking to become a pro web developer at the end of it you will need to put in significant amount of time outside of class.

    Brainstation provided me with such an amazing digital marketing course! Im currently enrolled in school as a full time student, and brainstaiton made it easy to coordinate my schedule with my classes. The instructors were so insightful and helpful, with such small classes it really felt like a community! I'll definitely be taking more classes at Brainstation.

    If your goal is to get a handle on web development in a supportive environment full of living beings I think you will be well served.  Much of the information may be available on-line for next to nothing, but still there is something about being in a class with real students and instructors that is particuarly motivating. It clearly is not meant to be as immersive or intensive as an 8 hour a day course as it is 3 hours 1 day a week plus whatever time you put into it outside of class. Anyone going into should understand this and not expect miracles - although I am impressed by what I am able to do now!

    By neccessity the course focuses on a few big technologies, namely HTML5, CSS and Bootstrap with a touch of JS. There is no job assistance in this part-time course which is understood going in. It's geared towards projects rather than tests - so it's up to you to use what you learn - no grades are given. The course leaders are often soliciting input from students in order to improve the material and delivery and I think with this intention to improve, it should only get better with time.

    I chose to attend BrainStation's Digital Marketing class because the part time evening hours fit my full-time work schedule, and I attended a workshop where I got a taste of their interactive teaching style.

    What I didn't expect was for BrainStation to surpass my expectations entirely. The class has 3 instructors that are all highly knowedgeable in the fields, as well as expremely passionate about sharing what they know. My classmates are from all levels - some are starting a business, some have marketing experience, and some are students fresh out of school. Yet they've taken the time to learn what our individual class wants to learn, and tailored the lessons and activities to the needs of our class. Plus, there's one on one time to work on our individual "projects".

    If you take tis course, I highly suggest you come in with a project in mind, whether it's promoting your own business, starting a blog, whatever. It'll help you focus the lessons and help guide your questions and what you want to learn. You'll get the most out of your experience this way.

    The way BrainStation's classes are structutred are exceptional!  The instructors really make sure you understand the lecture and since the classes are generally small, there is a lot of opportunity to ask questions and clarfy concepts.  Even the classmates I had were driven and passionate making BrainStation an even better environment to work in.  The instructors are extremely knowledgable and try to make the class as enjoyable as possible.  I loved the BrainStation experience and I am definitely returning in the Fall to further my digital skills!!

    What I liked best about BrainStation was the relaxed atmosphere in the classroom. It was really laid back and collaborative. Instead of the teacher talking for 3 straight hours, there was a lesson, and then we had time to work on our projects and ask questions. All the learning was hands on and I applied most things I learned directly to my project. Everyone else in the class was friendly and gave me lots of feedback on my work.

    I'm taking BrainStation's Digital Marketing course and so far it's been awesome. I'm a university student, so BrainStation is a breath of fresh air. I'm used to lectures with hundreds of students and 1 instructor. My Digital Marketing class at BrainStation is about as far from that as possible. The class is small and we have 3 instructors. All of them are so helpful and knowledgeable. They're always happy to answer our questions and provide feedback on our work. I love being able to collaborate with the other students on projects and bounce ideas off each other. Everyone is friendly and eager to learn, which makes class a lot of fun. Instead of dreading lectures like I do at university, I can't wait for my classes once a week.

    I was a bit hesitant about investing that much money in a Bootcamp, but now after this 3 months have passed, I can say it was definitely worth it. It was intense, fast-paced and challenging, everything you should expect from this sort of program. Overall the curriculum is great and the atmosphere is amazing.

    Great program to transition into a Data Science career. Was very happy with the knowledgeable and helpful instructors. They are great resource but they only make part of the whole experience. The whole BrainStation team works around the clock to give relevant and up to date material. From career development workshops, projects, cross program workshops and more this program really encompasses more than I expected. Would 100% recommend. You definitely get out what you put in.

    I really like the course, it wasn't too deep and it wasn't too top level, I learned so many things, but if you want to be successful in this course, you should know how to programming in python, it doesn't mean that you must know to advanced programming in python, but you should know how to develop a simple app in python. 

    The instructor of the course knows enough and can help you learn more industrial ML instead of academical ML.

    I really really recommend this course to everyone that wants to learn ML.

    The Digital Marketing certificate was an excellent introduction into the world of Marketing and Digital Marketing. I had very little experience coming in, and it really is designed for people without a background in the field or who need to brush up on older marketing strategies/need a refresh. While it moves at a very quick pace, I felt that it covered everything that I needed to get my feet wet and prepared for at least some baseline marketing knowledge in my next role.

    I came into the course with a good understanding of basic Python programming and Data Science Algorithms from a few online courses.  I was looking for the opportunity to sit down with an experienced Data Scientist for hours, to gain some practical problem solving and technical experience. 

    Jeremy was the Data Scientist teaching the course at the time, and he was terrific! He took great care and providing top-tier education. The most significant benefit from the class was watching Jeremy's workflow in solving common and other uncommon Data Science problems. These observations set a very high standard of quality in my work and helped me further my studies in DS via my self-studies after the course (always be learning). 

    The second largest benefit from the course was the network that I built in the class of fellow Data enthusiasts in Toronto.  I have remained close with my classmate as we all transitioned into Data Science roles in industry. Support each other when needed. 

    After the program, I transitioned from a job as a client services consultant to a Data Analyst and had to increase my annual salary by 20k (quickly making up for the cost of the course in the first year).

    Brainstation has some amazing programs and some not so amazing programs.

     

    Unfortunately CoureReport does not do a great job of distinguishing which sections of Brainstation are A+ 

    and which parts are C- at best.  I can tell you, without a doubt, that Courereports was instrumental

    in my making the decision to go to Brainstation.  Boy Was I Wrong !

     

    As stated earlier, whereas some programs at Brainstation are truly exceptional, other programs

    are truly works of amateur art and in need of severe assistance.  The instructors, if you look closely, 

    who started these new sections had no teaching experience but where told by the new owners to

    make a program.  Those instructors are no longer found herein, and you find brand new instructors

    who very clearly state that this is their latest version of the program, as if though you are a guinea pig.

     

    The class sizes here vary widely from term to term.  The summer session you can have twice the number of students than in Winter session.  You cant help but think to yourself, my God these people have no idea what the hell they're doing.  How in Gods name did I get here ?

     

    As good as CourseReports professes to be, it does the students a distinct dis-favor by not itemizing the 

    items on the menu and assuming that the Kung Pao chicken is as good as the Burger offered.  

    If a school limits itself to only one program, then the ratings would be accurate.  If the school

    has multiple programs and you have one rating system for all those programs, then the

    review system is fundamentally and profoundly flawed.

     

    Yes, absolutely, Brainstation is fabulous for some programs and total absolute rank amateurs for their others,

    and the applicant would be gravely mistaken to think a 5 Star rating for one of their programs equals 5 Star

    for every program under the same roof.  They could not be more wrong.

     

    Course Reports attempts to guide the students, but by not clearly advising on the various different

    programs under the same roof, it is profoundly misleading the students to believe the quality

    is consistent all around for all programs under the same roof.  That would be a fatal flaw.

    Hi there, 

    We appreciate your feedback on CourseReport’s rating system. Because the site only allows for overall rankings, we always recommend that you reach out to one of our Learning Advisors who can share more details about the course curriculum. 

    At BrainStation, our Instructors come from some of the best corporations in the world, bringing real-work experience and industry acumen from the field they are teaching. BrainStation instructors work in the discipline they teach every single day. This is important to us because we want to ensure that our students are learning from individuals who have the technical skills and industry knowledge that you need to succeed in a role in that field. Our courses are constantly updated to ensure that our students are learning the latest and most relevant industry skills, technologies, and trends.

    I attended BrainStation for the full time web development course in the Summer 2017 cohort.

    Overall, I have nothing but great things to say about the course, its instructors and the people I met throughout my ten weeks there. I personally had dabbled in development before taking the course (not web), and I certainly still found the course challenging and fulfilling. From my own experience and from others, I believe that to get the most out of the WDFT course, you should have at least some beginner understanding of programming/logic/development. The course moves very fast, and concepts and content get stacked upon itself very quickly as the final weeks close in.

    I believe that what you learn in those 10 weeks would be the equivalent of a self-taught learner spending 4-5x longer on the same content. Also bear in mind that upon completion, you earn a certification, have more networking opportunities, and have an up-to-date record on what technologies are being used at that very moment (as frameworks, languages and services become deprecated rapidly, all the time).

    I recently completed Brainstation's Digital Marketing (part-time) program this summer, and was pleased with the learnings I took away from the course. Coming from a Communications background, and having dug a little into digital in my own spare time, this program was a great refresher about the general scope of digital marketing - from SEO/SEM, social media best practices, Google Analytics/Adwords, content creation, and generating ad campaigns. That being said, if you're looking for a deeper dive into SEO/SEM, I would recommend looking into their SEO-specific program as what's touched on in the DIgital Marketing course is very high level.

    Beyond the course material, Brainstation has an unbelievable network of educators that lead their various programs, and I was fortunate to be instructed by Emily and Britt. They were able to integrate their professional experiences into the course material, bringing knowledge from both the corporate and freelance worlds.

    If you don't already follow Brainstation on Instagram (@brainstationyvr), you're quite possibly missing out on one of Vancouver's most aesthetically pleasing interior design spots. Brainstation recently relocated their Vancouver HQ from Yaletown to downtown Vancouver, and so the facility sports fresh white walls, and minimal finishings. It's also within walking distance of a multitude of shops and great lunch spots.

    The Brainstation community is welcoming, and their customer service is on point! If communicating via email, you can expect a response within 24 hours, not to mention follow-up emails to ensure your questions/learning goals (if you've enrolled in a class) are being met.

    In short, if you're looking for a quick refresher on all-things-digital (without diving too deeply into any given area), this is the course for you. And beyond the actual lecture slides and course materials, it's a great place to meet likeminded students/industry professionals. (Make sure to check out their available scholarships too if the course prices are a bit steep for you!)

    I took the full-time web development course and I have had a very bad experience for various reasons:

    1) the teacher is generally ill-prepared for class, and he rushes through concepts without clearly explaining them

    2) When you ask for help, instead of giving a clear answer, the teacher will give you 10% of the answer, tell you to go off and figure it out yourself, and then punish you or asking him a question in your assignment grade which is demoralizing 

    3) There are not very many resources available for students to self-study 

    4) This course has been a huge waste of money and time

    Hi there, 

    We’re sorry to hear that your experience with BrainStation was anything less than excellent. At BrainStation, student feedback is important, which is why we urge students to complete the Instructor feedback forms at multiple intervals throughout the course. This is to ensure that our education team has an indication if they are moving too quickly through topics, and can adapt their pace to student needs. 

    With regards to the pace of the course, our full-time Web Development diploma program is designed to give students the skills they need to step into a role as a junior full-stack developer right after graduation. The program is immersive, covering a great deal of material, and training students so that they can perform as a developer in a workplace environment. Often, these environments require self sufficiency, which is why we encourage our students to do extra practice and work outside of class to really hone their skills. The course is challenging, but we believe that this is the best way to prepare students for the real world. 

    Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us directly at contact@brainstation.io so that our team can try to help improve your overall experience.

    Took an accelerated, 4-day full time, product management course and have to say it was relatively disappointing considering the cost. I'd recommend instead to take an online course if you have the discipline.

    Pros:

    • Great instructor: Knowledgeable, friendly, easy to work with.
    • Cool space, unfortunately highly underutilized. 

    Cons:

    • Very pricey: Full price = $2250 or $563/day
    • Curriculum was far too overpacked to do much more than review slides and lecture
    • Little meaningful practice of the content
    • No prep work/homework so lots of time wasted in class
    • No accreditation
    • Lack of attention to details

    If I were to sum up my experience, it was a very expensive 6.5 hours daily, with about 4 hours of that being review of slides in a very rushed fashion. The instructor had to skip some sections of content to keep up.

    The instructor was great, really knowledgeable and did what he could to deliver as much value as possible in the 4 days.

    Unfortunately, the curriculum is far too packed for this format and allows for almost no time to actually practice anything in a meaningful way. Our final projects were very hastily put together with little feedback and definitely not something you would want to add to a portfolio. All we really had time for was reviewing slides, and doing rushed exercises.

    Given that there is no accreditation, I felt my money would have been better spent on a bunch of really good books, an online course and investing some time to meet with other product managers for coffee.

    As a side note, the space, administration and introductions of the course were rather unwelcoming. At one point the school was actually being rented out for a private hair styling event during our course and we were sequestered in our classrooms for a day. Considering the price it seemed there was a general lack of care for students and that it was more of a money grab. I shared most this feedback on our course wrap up, but never heard back.

    "Just wanted to give some feedback for the Digital marketing course. I don't know where you found this guy, but Josh is hands down the best educator I have had, in anything. Always keeps the class engaging, makes it exciting from 6:30-9:30pm on a work night, extremely knowledgeable, great communicator, makes everyone feel comfortable for a very diverse group, hilarious, empowering, and made Thursday nights at Brainstation something to really look forward to. I think I speak for a lot of people in the class. Like I said, BS Toronto couldn't have found a better guy to lead this course. Kudos to Michelina and Hailey too, they were super great supplementary educators and kept the 10-weeks fresh and experiential. Thanks to the whole team for the great experience."
