    The Digital Marketing course at Brainstation was great. There were a lot of practical skills transferred and I appreciate how it was case study based - having us work with a single business in mind throughout the whole course. I would have to say my favourite module was 'growth hacking', although they were all fascinating. You can expect to learn the beginning principles of all things social media related, as well as how to craft ads and take a small to medium sized business and grow it. I would highly recommend this course to anyone thinking about taking it. Great teachers, TA's and guest speakers make it a fun and non-stressful environment. Looking forward to the brand new campus!

    I'm just about to complete a 10-week course in Product Management at Brianstation and it has been a fantastic experience. My educators are not only knowledgeable experts in the field but also extremely friendly and supportive, sharing valuable insight and guiding us through completing our projects. Through Slack, they're always available to help and go beyond the course to answer any questions that we have! My class size was small so we were all able to receive individual feedback from our educators and they really made sure that we all had a chance to talk about our projects after mid-course presentations before moving on. As someone who comes from zero experience, I can certainly say that I've learned tons about product management and feel more confident now talking to others in the tech world. The campus is convenient to get to and a wonderful space to learn in with a big sense of community. I would definitely recommend this course!

    BrainStations course on Product Management is a great resource.

    I worked for two years as a Product Manager prior to taking this course and have found the subject matter to be very relevant to both myself and my co-students. 

    The instructors have been fantastic and are always available to discuss any questions. They consistently go out of their way to assist students and have extensive experience to back up what they are saying with concrete, real world examples!

    BrainStations facilities are excellent for collaboration and are available for current students to use any time.  My experience with BrainStation as a whole has been very useful and positive, I highly recommend!

    I'm energized, re-tooled and ready to go!

    I took both User Experience Design and Data Analytics, both were awesome.

    - Great structure to the UX course. Builds up on concepts very well and gives you the tools you need to complete your course project, which you work on from day 1 applying the concepts taught in class

    - Content covered everything I needed to meaningfully use UX in my work

    - Can't say enough positive things about the educator Sarah, always made class awesome.

    - Data Analytics provides a great into on statistics, and builds on that understanding to help me analyze and visualize data. Exactly what I needed for my job.

    - The space is beautiful. Besides looking good, and the free coffee, the people that are there are always willing to chat and share ideas and help.

    So far, I have loved this course. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who is interested in producing any type of content. I feel like this is hugely beneficial to understanding the ways that ecommerce thrives as well as getting digital content out and seen. I wanted to take this course because I had seen so many application for it in unexpected places. I was looking for work with environmental groups and small companies alike and they were all looking for digital marketing experience. 

    The location is great. Good vibes all around. I really feel like I can focus there. But I can also relax. Sometime I arrive early and I get right to work on my final project, sometimes I make tea and play ping pong.

    The teachers are awesome, smart, funny, talented women and the guest lectures have been on point! Christie, the main instructor works for Hootsuite and is very au courant. I really appreciate having someone who is actually in the industry represent what they deal with on a day to day. I feel that a huge benefit of this course is that the instruction is based on current jobs and realistic job demands partly because jargon and terminology is half the battle and partly because things change so fast in this field that that it is necessary to have someone who can explain why and how some of the new things that have come out are important, or what deeper significances they have, with examples.

    Content wise, I find this course a little bit softer than I had anticipated. Not lighter in content, just a little more conceptual. I think this speaks more to the field than to the instruction. I feel inspired by the instructors to be innovative, because ultimately critical thinking is key here. I was surprised by how heavily creativity is balanced with procedure. They really illustrate how data analysis is the number one key to strategic and effective marketing.

    overall positive experience, I am even thinking of signing up for class that takes a deeper look into one specific aspect of the wonderfullly broad categories that class has focused on.

    I am on my final week of the Digital Marketing program at Brain Station in Vancouver. I was firstly so thrilled to know that there was a program to help me increase my skills in this area without having to spend years at a local college. Once I heard about Brain Station through word of mouth I knew I had to take this program. I have learned SO much within the past 2 months that a billion YouTube videos could never teach me. Both of my leaders, Christie and Zamina, were extremely knowledgeable, passionate and up-to-date within this industry and brought many personal stories through their work experience to the classroom to share. Besides the informative and interesting hands-on classes that are themed each week, I really enjoyed that I had access to multiple tools to help elevate each week's theme in the form of suggested articles, websites, and programs. Being able to have a local brand to focus on was another bonus as I got to dig deep into the community of Vancouver and gain a full understanding on how to research your market, set objectives and build out a marketing campaign from start to finish. I would have NEVER been able to even have completed step 1 of 10 when building out a campaign before this program. I am excited to bring my skills to my work, applying all of my knowledge and feeling confident that I can tap into my market while gaining new interactions more than ever before. I would highly suggest this program to entrepreneurs and digital marketing enthusiasts alike.

    Almost finished taking the 10 week Product Management course and have absolutely loved the experience. The classes are small, the instructors are super knowledgable and the course content is current and relevant. I recommend taking the course with Jeff as he brings with him a ton of experience and knowledge. He also encourages people to reach out to him outside of class if they have any questions and he's very good about suggesting supplemental reading materials he thinks are worth while. I definitely recommend taking the PdM course if you are interested in becoming a Product Manager or if you'd like to know more about the product lifecycle from idea to creation.

    I enrolled in the Digital Marketing course at Brainstation Vancouver with very little background in technical skills or understanding the online marketplace in general.  I can happily say that after 8 weeks (I still have 2 classes left) I feel so much more confident in what it takes to create a successful marketing strategy as well as understanding the behind-the-scenes details of implementing marketing goals.  The instructors are both so lovely and highly encourage questions throughout class and on Slack throughout the week.  Though some of the concepts at first seem very daunting, the instructors make sure that they walk through everything step by step to ensure everyone understands what they are talking about.  

    It should be noted that the course revolves around a singular project where you are sorted into groups the first week and assigned a local company that you create a marketing strategy for by the end of the course.  This is to ensure that all the topics addressed in class can be applied to your project.  While I think this is a good idea, for me it is a little frustrating to learn a topic and immediately apply it to a business that you don't work for.  I like the modules for the class and I really enjoy the different examples of successful uses of digital marketing strategies but I think I would prefer less of an emphasis on your assigned company and project.  It feels like a lot of time spent (for example) performing different iterations of google adwords for just one company as opposed to understanding how something like that would work for different businesses.  

    All in all, I think it is a great course with awesome content and fantastic instructors!

    There were two teachers for the part time web development class. This was super helpful because they could spend time and give a great deal of help to everyone. I found that they were both patient and knew how to work around the various challenges. Both instructors are currently working in the industry which was reassuring that the advice the class was being given was valid. Before taking the class, I knew a little bit of coding. However, this class helped refine my code and follow the best practices in industry. A lot of the content were things I have been asked in interviews before which was also reassuring. Everyone taking the class are working and want to learn more skills to stay current. It was nice to connect with other designers who had a same goal as me and share ideas. I found the space quiet and especially clean! They make it really comfy and open for a large volume of students. I would recommend this course to anyone who is working and wants to upgrade their skills. Having the class only once a week gives more time to catch up with the content and prepare for the week coming. It's a great course for people who don't know any code and people who have previous knowledge.

    Great school for learning digital skills. The educators are seasoned professionals in the industry they are teaching in, and the content was tailored to be able actually help you in the skills you need to master to be the best in your field. The Yaletown campus is a sweet learning space, and you get to connect to an amazing student community. Plus, you get to stay connected with your classmates and professors over Slack, and they go the extra mile to answer your questions and help you in your career. I would highly recommend Brainstation to a friend.

    I am just about done my 10-week tenor at Brainstation in their Product Management class with Jeff. I took this course as a means to compliment my current role, but it became so much more. Being back in a learning environment after nearly 5 years of graduating university was amazing. The Brainstation environment is unique - very small class size, one on one training, and your instructor is a talented professional in the industry. I learned a lot, but I also made connections/mentors, and was able to properly execute the means for a product idea I've had for a while. I would suggest this course to anyone looking to learn more about Product Management in a learning style that is very suitable for our time. By no means are these courses 100% textbook and theory based. You gain the knowledge but also are able to do a lot of hands-on learning to, and take away a tangible product at the end. I'm sad it's over!

    My experience at Brainstation has been a truely positive one. The content is up to date, informative, and led by Vancouver's industry professionals. Brainstation offers up a very helpful community, which is really useful whenever you have some extra questions about the content or just want to meet people with a similar interest in Digital Marketing ( a great place to network)!

    I was enrolled in the digital marketing course at Brainstation Yaletown and I think it was definitely worth it; I am so glad I chose to take it! The content was relevant, focusing on one (out of ten) aspect per week, with real time (no useless 5-year-old examples), real life (all companies used were locally based), and applicable examples. In addition to the content itself, the space in which the classes are held is modern and clean with exposed brick and glass, while the classes were small enough that you actually felt involved. Not only was the environment warm and welcoming but the instructors are so passionate about their field that you can really get a sense of their enthusiasm for the subject. For anyone looking to expand their knowledge in the world of digital marketing, I 10/10 would recommend.

    Fantastic course for the beginner to product. You will gain a very good foundation for building the specific skill sets required to be a Product Manager. The curriculum is well thought out and taught in a strategic order. The instrutors are very knowledgeable and, most importantly, are VERY enthusiastic about the content. I took this course with NO knowledge of how products are taken from ideation to market. The goal was to help transition out of a Sales career and into product. Goal achieved. Definitely worth the investment if you can. 

    Areas of Improvement: speaking more on how to make the transition into product. Take a real job posting and bring lessons back to skillsets required on a resume. Show how concepts we have learned speak to the desired skillset.

    Thanks BrainStation.

    Overall, taking the web development immersive proved to be a great calculated risk.  The community/environment was very supportive of your goals and where you want to end up.  The course content was based on the most modern tech stack which is trending upwards which means that most organizations out there might not be using that stack. The educators/TA's were awesome, very approachable and explained concepts very well; & with me being a total beginner with no prior experience in developing this gave me the boost I needed.  Being surrounded with like-minded people working towards the same goal assisted in keeping me committed and interested throughout the 3 months.  

    By no means does Brainstation or any Bootcamp guarantee employment after finishing, nor should they.  However, a lot more can be done for student success within Brainstation and assisting students/alumni to get pushed into their respective fields. Career advice/assistance was only given/provided the last week while this should've been a recurring aspect since the beginning.  This would undoubtedly improve the student experience and add to the value proposition for what they're providing.  With that added effort, they can market their data-driven results to continue growing and uphold student/alumni satisfaction.  Overall, great experience with this web development Bootcamp.

    I signed up for the UX Design Fulltime course in January. For me first time experiences are important, especially when I am laying out alot of cash. I listen carefully to how the people within the organization speak and presnet themselves. I line that up with my interactions with the staff and see if it is consistent.
     

    I can honestly say that this was the case with BrainStation. From the top to the bottom the  staff was always transparent with how they deal with the students. The were always honest and upfront. My financial situation at the time was challenging and they were patient and worked with me through the program. It was very easy to talk with instructors on a one to one basis, they were all very approachable.

    I appreciated that they became an acredited school. For me that was huge, it means that they are accountable for the product they deliver and I can safely say by the experience I had on the Demo Day they delivered. I was amazed at how many positive comments I got about my App. People could see what I was trying to deliver as a product. This was as a result of they content they delivered. Was the content delivred perfectly everytime, no. However they made the effort to adjust content on the fly or change delivery dates to accomodate people when they werer feeling pressured.

    They also continue to develop and tweak the content. So those of you who take the next session will receive an even better experience.

    I highly reccomend this course and the orginization.

    I completed the Digital Marketing part-time program at Brainstation Vancouver, and I enjoy the program.

    Our course instructors 
    Conner Gallaway and Laura Andersen were so passionate about digital marketing industry and shared many great case studies and their experiences with everyone which is really helpful for us to understand. I particularly like Conner asked, "What's new on social media?" every week at the beginning the class.

     I can't wait to use what I've learned to apply to my own photography business and highly recommend this course to everyone, especially start-up entrepreneur!

    When I looked into this course I wasn't sure if you could be job ready after only taking a course for 10 weeks but decided it was worth a try. The course was a lot of work and coming from a background unrelated to tech and design I had a few learning curves. You get what you put into the course and if you work hard and complete as much of the work as you can you should leave ready to persue a career in UX design.

    Brainstation does a good job providing students with networking opportunies by having classes visit local start- ups and other digital companies, having speakers come in every Friday and allowing students to attend their events either free or for a discounted price. The Toronto campus is located in a beautiful building with a kitchen stocked with snacks and coffee. Overall, I had a great experience and would recommend this program.

    I joined the Web Development Immersive course during the summer with a strong interest and hope for related career development. The course was very informative and the instructors and TAs were very helpful in every aspect. 

    Learning job-ready skills in 10 weeks bootcamp can definitely be very challenging. I had to put in a lot of effort to gain the maximum out of the course even with some background in computer science. But it was very much worth it.

    People without science background could find it hard to catch up with the materials at times, but the TAs were very helpful and the instructors added extra sessions to help go over the materials so that everyone's on the same page.

    The syllabus was very well organized and the contents taught were very up-to-speed with the industrial standard. 

    ps. They also provided snacks, energy bars and fruits. Sometimes they also had meals for special events, or left-over food from other courses, and it was soooooo good!

    tl;dr: great course, fantastic people, can be challenging, need a lot of effort, and delicious food!

    I completed the FT Web Immersive program this past summer in August of 2016. The program, which utilizes a flipped-classroom approach to teach modern, cutting-edge technologies, offered a unique learning opportunity to my expand technical skills as well as gain valuable industry experience through working in diverse teams under real world circumstances.

    In such a program where grades are nonexistent, one really needs to put in the extra work and ask necassary questions to make the most of the entire experience. I would say if you can consistently put a strong effort in throughout the duration of the program you will confidently walk away with substantial value.

    To this point the BS team and staff were exceptional, they offered us unlimited access to the workspace, discounts to BS events outside the classroom, and were always available for questions even if such questions were beyond the scope of the program.

    I would say one area the BS team could improve in is to spend more 1 on 1 time with students to assess and discuss their progress in the course. My cohort of 30+ was the largest they had seen to date, we had a distinct skills gap where many students were struggling while several others were getting bored with the slowed pace. To my understanding they have begun to address this issue with recent cohorts by scaling back, increasing admissions standards, and focusing more on student experience.

    The cirriculum and course content they provide is fantastic, it is still something I am referring back to even as I am now compeleting a Bsc. in computer science. They do a tremendous job of exposing you to the most essential and relevant technologies in such a short period of time. Even after the program is over they allow access to the course portal and are always available to answer any questions you may have.

    I would certainly recommend BS to anyone seriously interested in attending a web dev bootcamp but only after advising them that bootcamps should not be seen as a ticket to a job as a full stack developer but rather as an extremely strong foundation and starting point from which the must continue to work hard and grow into the space.

    I can’t say enough about BrainStation. For those who are looking to learn a new skill or change careers altogether, these part-time courses are so ideal. I work full-time, so taking a full-time course isn’t an option for me, but the part-time course makes learning super flexible! 

    I’ve noticed that a lot of employers are looking for basic knowledge in HTML/CSS, so having additional insight of UI Design is complementary to that.

    The instructors are knowledgable and approachable. They are attentive and give great constructive feedback.

    Would highly recommend!

    I just finished up the part time Digital Marketing course in Toronto. I recently graduated from a Marketing and Communications university undergrad. I wanted to take this course as an alternative to a 1 or 2 year post-graduate diploma at a college, and I'm very happy I made that decision. It was an expediated alternative to bridge the gap from a common business degree into a more specialized field. I took from the course exactly what I was looking. And whether it was the course helped or not I don't know...but I landed an entry level position with Digital Marketing Agency here in Toronto very quickly.

    PROS
    - Course content was relevent, practical, and insightful in todays tech and marketing world. 
    - The digital marketing campaign you are assigned to build out as your group project, was directly inline with course content and a great way to apply concepts into a real life setting.
    - My class was taught by a Growth Hacker from Shopify and assisted by a Digital Marketing Manager from Adidas. They seemed to have a lot of industry experience and insight. 
    - The Brainstation space/building is top notch, and there staff are super helpful and welcoming. I was sad when I finished up the course.

    CONS
    - The course does go by quick. If you don't pay attention in class or miss a class in general, you will be missing an important part.
    - The classes/instructors could improve there timing/structure. Breaks and project time need to be more defined and consistent.
    - The brands assigned to the RFP project should give more info with regards to their needs and direction. Also, students should not be allowed to chose which brand they work on. As a marketing professional in the real world, you don't always get to pick who your clients are right?

    OVERALL
    From what I gathered from my course and time there, Brainstation is leading the pack in Toronto it comes to this kinda stuff. The place seems like a hub for tech, design, and business people. Come in with an open mind, and not with a "know it all" mentality. You'll learn a lot more that way.

    Like anything in life, it is what you make of it. If you put the effort to pay attention in class, interact with other students/instructors, and most importantly apply/practice the concepts you learn in class towards the project...you will take a lot from it. And the project is a big portfolio builder in my opinion. Also, as a student you get access to all the other bootcamps and events they hold on a weekly basis. I definately took advantage of that. Once I settle into my new job, I thinking I'll be taking the Product Management course. Overall experience = 4/5.

    I recently took the iOS Development class at BrainStation offered in Fall 2016.  The favourite part of my experience with BrainStation was the great instructors with well organized course materials. I was very impressed with things we do in the class, which was heavily focused on hands-on projects. Although first couple weeks were reviewing what I learned at school, it was essential since I lacked in basic foundation in Swift language. I loved how not only instructor is there to help you but also the TAs. They work in the relative field to iOS Development, and I was able to get some professional experience over the shoulders from them. As a student, this was a huge asset for me in getting an internship position.

    This course is pretty tough for beginners, but people who do their homework and are very passionate got to finish their courses successfully.  Reaching out to the instructor is also important, as they are willing to help you as best as they can.

    The teacher was amazing. Explained to detail made sure everyone was understanding what we were learning. The assistant worked out well so that there was enough to get around the 10 people in the classroom which helped on the waiting time for others  to catch up. Well organized and structured course notes.
