    I met amazing people...

    “Thanks to the course, I met many incredible designers, who today work on social impact projects, people who in one way or another influence trends, solutions and guide me as inspiration. The support of the people in charge of coordination was excellent, even after leaving the academy they continue to support and encourage learning initiatives.” - Ana Maria

    User Interface Design and Product Management courses!

    I just completed my second BrainStation course. Last summer I took the Product Management course on campus in Vancouver, BC and this summer I took the User Interface course online. They were both one night a week for 10 weeks. 

    The quality of both courses was excellent. I like the 10 week format because I need time to really absorb what I am learning. The product management course is offered over 5 full time days (or was last year anyway) and I really don't think I would have lear...

    Data Science Certificate Review

    I thoroughly enjoyed the Data Science Certificate  at BrainStation. Being online, I thought perhaps the course delivery might be less than exceptional but BrainStation has certainly lived up to all the hype. Not only was the learning experience invaluable, it was also delivered smoothly and in a manner that my learning feel like a priority.

    My instructor was attentive and extremely knowledgable, and also was able to help me outside of class hours on questions and guidance for my f...

    Digital marketing course

    I took BrainStation’s Digital Marketing Certificate course in 2020 to refresh my knowledge, and to upgrade my skills to be leading edge. As someone in branding and marketing, I like a fast-paced environment with lots to explore and learn about, so BrainStation’s course was perfect for me. The classes were 3 hours, once a week, during which I would digest the equivalent of 2 days of learning at a college. The more you make notes and pay attention, the more you’ll get out of the courses. <...

    User Experience Design

    I’ve been working as a designer for the last 12 years, I got my start as an intern at a design firm where I went on to work as Sr Graphic Design, this gave me a great foundation for visual design before moving on to focus solely on User Experience and Product design. My career was mostly self-started and I felt like I reached a stage in my career where I wanted some fundamental training in User Experience design to address some areas where I thought I could improve.

The pace of the course was fast however, the learning outcomes after 12 weeks are vast and strong enough to make one feel...
