    BrainStation Data Analytics Course

    I took the 10 week Data Analytics Course via their 'Online Live' platform. My entire experience was awesome! I'm glad I made the decision to learn with them again, after already completing the Product Management certificate. 

    I felt very supported by the entire BrainStation team throughout the entire course. My instructor was excellent. He was an expert in the field and provided industry examples for all of the tools and concepts we learnt. He was organized, engaged, and truly...

    Data Analytics Part-Time Course

    Enrolled in the course to learn some new things and to become a better marketer. I’ve taken a few other courses at BrainStation so I was already very familiar with the structure and quality of the curriculum. This course was a fantastic dive into the world of data analytics. Aside from the theoretical concepts of data analytics, I was able to gain hands-on experience using tools such as advanced Excel, SQL, and Tableau. Very quickly, I applied the skills I learned in class to real-life cha...

    Fantastic Web Development Bootcamp!

    Just graduated from Brainstation's Web Dev Bootcamp. Great experience overall, the material was very thorough and up to date with the current development environment. The units moved by quickly and were extremely comprehensive, and overall the community was amazing and really has helped empower me in my career change towards web development.

    UX Diploma program

    I took the full-time user experience diploma program in the fall 2019 cohort. It was quite intense both during class and outside of class but well worth it!

    I really enjoyed all the workshops and events that helped us connect to professionals in the industry.

    The mentor ship program was amazing! Our mentors helped us through and gave us great feedback on how to be successful.

    Digital marketing

    The digital marketing course was a great experience for me.

    Both instructors were very good. They explained the concepts in a very clear way, with lots of examples from real world. They had a very positive attitude all along the course and they were always open to suggestions.

    The curriculum of the couse is a good one and many resources were shared by the instructors.

    The only downside of it was that the school does not provide a demo account for some programs...

    The perfect low-pressure certification program!

    I loved my recent online live course obtaining a Product Management certificate. The 10 week course seemed to cater to both new students who were just starting to understand what a PM does, but also could be very good practice for seasoned candidates who already have a PM role and want to be better at it. My Fall course had a small class of 6 students, which was the perfect size to make sure we were all heard and participating equally. This particular online live course was every Tuesday n...

    Data Science Full Time

    Before taking this program, I took some online courses. This full time program is a totally different experience. The educators are nice and knowledgeable. Although the course is very intense, you will need to push yourself and I've learned a lot during these three months.

    Search Engine Marketing

    I just finished taking the Search Engine Marketing Class with Brainstation. This was my fifth class with Brainstation and I have gained a ton of value from each of them. 

    This class was a great overview of Search Engine Marketing, what to look for and how to do it. Both the instructors were hands on, constantly working with students on individual learning, and both very knowledgable. 

    Won't be the last course I take from Brainstation, and I recommend it to you.

    Web Development

    I couldn't recommend Brainstation's Web Development course more! 

    Each concept was explained clearly and thoroughly. We got a lot of learning value out of each class.

    Zach taught the lessons at a good pace - one that was easy to follow for beginners but also provided enough challenges to ensure growth. Adam made sure that all of our questions were addressed and explained concepts very clearly. 

    The student support at Brainstation is great as well.

    Great classes

    I had a fantastic experience while I studied at BrainStation Vancouver. The instructors were always presenting examples and trying to explain the hardest things in an easy way.

    Machine Learning is an amazing field and I'm happy to have had the opportunity to study the concepts at BrainStation.

    I'd highly recommend this school because they really want to accelerate students' progress.

    I cannot believe  how much I was able to learn in 12 weeks. The class was challenging. We learned skills that I feel are practical and applicable. The course is suitable for ones without coding background but if you have some statistics knowledge it would be easier.I would absolutely recommend this program to those who want to shift their career to working with data.
