    Web Development Diploma Bootcamp

    I attended the Web Development Bootcamp in Fall of last year. When I first started, I didn't know up from down when it came to coding. I was as green as you could be, but when it came time to develop my own full-stack web app during the capstone portion of the program, I surprised myself with just how much I had picked up during the three months of instruction from my teachers and amazing TAs. 

    I didn't realize that I would enjoy coding as much as I do, and I'm thankful that my in...

    HIGHLY OVERPRICED AND USELESS

    I have taken the cybersecurity course that brainstation has to offer because it was recommended by a friend, The sales consultants said you should find a job after taking this course, no problem (as they always do). Now after a year of applying, I could not find a job in the cybersecurity sector. The course cost me around $3297 because I chose the 12 month payment plan. This was a 5 week course, each week has one 8 hour class and cover 1 modules per day, total 5 modules in the remainder ...

    UX Diploma Program

    BrainStation's UX Diploma program was very helpful with my pivot into the UX field with no prior design experience. The success of a student will depend on how much they put into the program. It is a very challenging 12-week program and a lot of self-guidance is needed to really hone in on your craft. However, the education team as well as the career success team are very approachable and provide a great amount of support throughout.

    My experience was great as I have had the oppor...

    BrainStation review

    For my situation, it was absolutely worth it. I was able to fill in some knowledge gaps and learn up-to-date technologies in a fast-paced environment by building projects, collaborating with others etc. The instructors were also very helpful and knowledgeable. I was also able to utilize career services throughout the program and after graduating.

    Couldn't be happier

    With the guidance of the educators, I was confident to begin my new career in UX. The workload is heavy & challenging but is conveyed at such a level of detail and care that you never feel over encumbered. My favourite thing about this bootcamp is that every minor idea, concept or tool that is mentioned or covered, is almost immediately put into practice through labs/ homework study. Sure, you'll still be lacking real-world experience, but you'll be aquatinted with all you need to kn...

    Data Science Bootcamp - Not for the Faint of Brain

    The full-time Data Science bootcamp is both as vast and as concise as it could be for a 12-week program. The curriculum was amazing and focused, as well as truly challenging. The assignments make heavy use of intelligent ambiguity to give you a feel for how real-world projects will go, but the class time will not leave you wondering what to do.

    The grading for assignments is thankfully very strict and the level of data scientist they want to see you achieve is evident with the bar...

    Web Development Diploma Program

    Changed my life! I went through their 3-month full-time web development diploma program and it jump started my career in web development. The quality of learning was incredible, I went through the program completely remote and cannot believe how effective it was. The tech stack they cover is super relevant to the industry right now and is in demand, learning React sets you up to learn many other frontend frameworks easily so it's a great starting point.

    Best Instructors I've had!

    I recently completed a cyber security bootcamp with Brainstation in December 2021.
    Having previously completed several courses and the Security+ I did not expect to learn anything groundbreaking.

    I was pleasantly surprised with how well the instructors went through the course material and they spent lots of time answering questions. Both instructors were professionals working in the industry at large companies and from different areas in Cyber Security.

    Data science

    I really enjoyed the data science with Brainstation. Sure it requires time and effort, but so does any coding language. I am really glad I put the effort as I feel confident and motivated in taking up data projects and continuing the journey. The duration of the course was adequate, the exercises given pushed the students to go beyond the scope of the class and the instructors were extremely knowledgeable and supportive with the exercises and the project.
