    UX Design

    Overall, it was a very well design course for five weeks. I never had a UX designing experience; this course taught me a different type of software and tips that can be very helpful in a professional career. The instructors were experienced and available on slack to help us with our projects. Thank you, Jenna and Sarah, for equipping me with new skills.

    Data Science _ Part time

    This course is 3 month part- time Data Science course . Class is once a week so it fits my work schedule however, it has been a challenging for me to study and learn mathematical and statistical business approach at the same time as coding in Python during my spare time. I highly suggest to those who think of taking this program studying prior to the course at least how to use Python or basic statistics or mathematics. After all, I have achieved to learn many new things and obtained conf...

    Great value that builds on your skillset

    Wow, what a great value taking this course has been!

    I am a seasoned product designer with a background in UX/UI but my roles recently have required more product thinking, vision and strategy. I was looking to expand my knowledge about product management and decided to enroll in the 10-week online course at Brainstation.

    Throughout the class, there were so many insights and I acquired through the course content and exercises. I also created a personal product project that d...

    Data Analytics - Review

    Thrilled to have completed their intensive Data Analytics course. I’m now much more confident in my SQL skills and have experienced Tableau’s power.

    How does this course add value to professionals?

    Very impressed by the calibre, competency, and professionalism of their instructors. You also get free student access to Tableau which is a major plus as well as help setting up MySQL and Tableau which can be a pain if you try to do it on your own.

    Review for: Brain Station Search Engine Marketing Course (10 Weeks - Zoom)

    This is my second course at Brain Station, and I had another great experience. To anyone who has not taken a course at Brain Station, I would highly recommend it. The culture is completely different from a regular academic experience. The courses are laid-back, relevant, and designed for the real world.

    Data Analytics

    I took the Data Analytics Online Live course at BrainStation for 10 weeks. In this course you get to learn Excel formats, SQL and Tableau. If you’re more of an advanced user of SQL then this may not be the best suited course for you. This course is geared towards those with little to know experience with SQL or Tableau. I found the course to be a really great intro to these tools, but it would’ve been great to maybe have some more classes focused on SQL. Still I great course though, and ...

    Great Supplement to Digital Marketing Course

    I just finished the Social Media Marketing course. I previously took Brainstation's Digital Marketing course and this was a great supplement. We took a deeper dive into the relevant platforms of today (FB, IG, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest) and even touched on the newcomers like Tik Tok.

    A great experience packed in 10 weeks!

    As a digital marketer a user’s experience has always been important to me. I have always worked closely with designers and developers, but decided to formalize my knowledge and understanding of UX.

    Digital Marketing Course

    I took this remote digital marketing course at Brainstation. For the amount of money that I have paid (3.5k CAD) I don't believe this course was worth it. A lot of the information just scratched the surface and was too basic - I have known a lot of it from my university and internet already. The course didn't give as much practical and real life application knowledge as I hoped.
