    Great high level overview of PM fundamentals

    I took Product Management with Brainstation in Winter 2022. The teachers were experienced business professionals working within the field that were able to bring their relevant experiences to the course forum. 

    This course would be well suited to someone looking for a strong introduction to the frameworks of product management, and would be a great course for someone looking to improve their business sense. This course may be less relevant for students already with a strong busine...

    Graduate

    BrainStation's online web development bootcamp was a good start to begin and accelerate my developer journey. I learned a lot of the fundamentals needed to enter the job market.
    The instructors and TAs made the experience amazing. They were super helpful and would go the extra mile to answer any questions you may have which made it easy to learn a lot in a short period of time.

    User Experience Design Course

    I took the Saturday course and it was an intense 7 hour class every week for 5 weeks. If you have more time during the week I would recommend taking the course in a longer amount of time. The teachers were amazingly helpful and knowledgeable. Any time I felt lost or confused I would not hesitate to ask and would always get a very detailed answer from Jessica! 
    The only low rating I left was Job Assistance because there were a few slides about how to get a job and what to put and desig...

    Mixed Feelings

    An ok course overall! I'm half and half on my experience. And if you were like me, incessantly wondering and contemplating on your career path, hopefully my anecdotes help! 

    TLDR; As with anything, there are pros and cons to any experience, a lot of it I was honestly disappointed, but I put in a lot of the work and effort during and after the course which led me to a great job I have now and am very satisfied with. Bits of what I learned in the course, I use today at my job. You g...

    BrainStation just cares about their stats

    I signed up for one of the UX bootcamps in 2021 and slowly since graduating the program I have realized that BrainStation is just into the stats. 

    Firstly, I will say that you only get what you want out of the program. The program is very hectic, fast paced and it can be tough but if you want to take it all in, you have to be present at every lab and lecture to get the most of it. You will be equipped with the foundational skills required to get a job but my recommendation would b...

    My idea about this course

    I am a web developer, and I believe most of the lessons and experiences in this course are useful. It gives you a high level of the programs that developers should know for starting their jobs in the market. My complaint part is about job assistance. You should not think that they can find a job for you. They only help you to make your resume and LinkedIn acceptable. It took about 8 months for me to find my job, but I can see how this program helps me to work in the market.

    My experience in Data Science program at BrainStation

    Well thought-out course designed to teach you the fundamentals of working with data in many different fields. Really enjoyed the fast pace Monday-Friday classes, which may not be for everyone, but it kept me engaged and focused on the task as hand. You never really dive into too much detail in any particular subject, but you're setup to now have the knowledge to continue learning on your own as you are connected with the right resources and provided the framework on which you can work on...

    Highly Recommend Data Analytics Certification Course

    Instructors were highly engaging, passionate, and knowledgeable, which made all the difference. Curriculum strikes the right balance between foundational theory, hard skill development, and industry application. For my purpose of up-skilling and differentiating myself within my current field (digital product design + strategy), I couldn't have asked for a better course.

    Valuable Experience

    I had a great experience learning at BrainStation. I found curriculum very relevant because of the concepts and real world examples that were integrated all through. The faculties were very helpful and were very committed to us getting the concepts. The course project was also a great addition. We got to develop real ideas and that was really cool. I'll definitely recommend BrainStation to anyone who is looking to pivot/grow their careers in any of the fields they currently offer.

    User Experience Design Bootcamp

    This program was definitely a challenging one, but it sufficiently provides the necessary fundamentals for a career transition into the complicated field of UX. If you have little to no experience within the field, then you would come out of it learning a LOT and be able to lean on your peers and instructors in a really supportive environment, at least during the duration of the program. It was fast-paced with a lot of projects to work on, but one of the main benefits of this is to be ab...

    UX Design Diploma Program

    The lead educator was knowledgeable and a strong teacher. The curriculum provided a solid foundation to UX Design, and I felt confident to be able to apply for junior UX design roles upon program completion.  The teachers provide great support throughout the program, and a positive learning atmosphere. There is a career support program as well that provided valuable knowledge and guidance to the job hunt process.
