    Full-Stack Java Developer

    Claim Academy helped me grow my skills and taught me lots of valuable information about Java programming and all of the software that goes into being a Full-Stack Java Developer. It is a lot of information to learn in 12 weeks, and you have to be willing to put in a lot of work to learn the material while applying it, by taking lots of notes, reading the material and coding, as well as learning how to find answers yourself online through Google searches, YouTube, and every resource avail...

    Full Stack Java Developer

    Claim Academy has helped me grow my skills in the tech world and allow me to become a Full Stack Java Developer. The teachers and mentors are always there to help and challenge you along the way! The program is quite challenging for the first timer, but it is so rewarding and you meet a lot of great people along the way. Not only your fellow classmates, but the instructors as well. I am happy that I chose this path.

    Be prepared to work...

    12 weeks of frustration, discovery, anxiety, and growth. Be prepared for a violent education with ups and downs galore. No one in our cohort was hired before the end of the course, but the time of year that you take the course has a definite impact on that. I believe that the most valuable thing that claim offers is the access to, and support of their business partners. I believe that their visiting alumni nights are important for student moral and to keep them working hard.

    Claim 2020 Class

    Claim Academy garnered my interest with a series of bold promises; they would teach me to code, get me well paying job in the Saint Louis community,  and refine the skills I need to succeed in the current market. While skeptical at first, I toiled through the program which gave us an ample environment to succeed. At the end of my twelve week course I am satisfied with Claim's claims and am personally recommending the course to friends and family

    Results!

    Claim focuses on getting you employed, even before you graduate.  They challenege you in all the right ways, just like a real world work environment does.  Some amazing capstone projects and amazing people graduate from Claim.  It's not easy, but it's well worth your investment.  One of the absolute best bootcamps for military veterans as well as they accept the GI Bill and the new VET-TEC program students.

    First Time Coder

    Claim Academy is a very immersive boot camp.  These last 12 weeks have been rigorous and filled with frustration.  Overall however, it was a positive experience.  That being said, there is plenty of room for improvement.  I really hope claim changes the curriculum around to involve the instructors more.  It is broken down as 5 days a week for 9 hours a day.  3 hours solo programming, 3 hours peer programming, and 3 hours of instruction.  I believe it they changed it to an hour and a half o...
