    Worst experience ever, time and money waist

    I want to give an honest and straightforward review of this course to help other people who are putting all their effort into a career change and trying to make the best decision about where to allocate the resources they have. DCI has been a terrible experience. After 8 months of classes with 2 teachers who arrived every day without having a lesson or material prepared, they tried to explain concepts that were very confusing because of their lack of preparation. Not to mention that when...

    Marketing Digital

    Cumplí con los 3 cursos dentro del pack "Marketing Digital" y quedé más que conforme. De un curso a otro se fueron notando cambios, mejoras constantes, paulatinas pero firmes, lo cual logró que mí cursada vaya de Bien a Excelente. Aplican la eficiencia que enseñan, lo ves en sus excelentes campañas. 100% recomendado.

    Best decision

    For a long time I was really unhappy with the retail job I had. So I finally decided to step out of my comfort zone and do something completely new, learn how to code. I participated in the Web Development course of DCI in Berlin and finally found my true passion. Now I wake up every day and I am excited about what I do, which is the best feeling. I am so happy I made the decision to join DCI. The classes were challenging at times but I felt well supported by the instructors and the grea...

    Great community

    I came to DCI having no clue about coding but was eager to learn and take on new challenges on my career path. I felt really lucky at the time because I finally found a WebDev program in English and fully funded by the German Employment Agency. DCI staff and especially teachers did work really hard to provide us not only an up-to-date and intensive curriculum but also a community of people who are willing to learn and to help each other. There were now and then some shortcomings with the...

    Exceeded my expectations

    Losing my previous job, I was done with the industry and really frustrated. Once I started my course at DCI, everything changed for the positive for me. I got really enthusiastic because of the support and because I could see from the beginning the value of their course. Their curriculum is extremely well put together, especially the Organic Social Media Marketing and Paid Social Media Marketing is very helpful for my current job. With the help of the DCI-Team I was able to land a job ri...

    Worst school ever.

    Bad teachers, the classes aren't well prepare by them. We had a teacher teaching Javascript/React who knew nothing about the subject, the school's support when looking for a job is zero, they waste your time with "job coaches" who add nothing to the course and only spout platitudes and "toxic positivity" when you complain about the school's real problems. In short, things you can see on any Ted Talk on Youtube for free. 

    But the biggest problem is the Web Development teachers who ...

    It is bad, really bad!

    This review is about the 12 month Web Developer course. It was an awful and exhausting experience. The teachers could not teach. It's as simple as that. I believe they had their knowledge but they couldn't pass it to us because they knew nothing about how to be a teacher. We complained for many months about this and the school couldn't care less. The so called "class managers" couldn't do more than "it will get better, we will look into this, don't worry, thank you for your feedback". We...

    My expectations have been exceeded

    I worked in a hotel for some years and then started a family. Since it was difficult to reconcile both, I decided against my career. After a few months of unemployment, I decided to make a further education into the digital sector. With the DCI I was able to graduate as an Online Marketing Manager and now I have a great job with home office, work-life balance and a top salary. Thank you Digital Career Institute!

    DCI Online Kurs Webcoding und Marketing

    Hallo, ich war im Orientierungskurs Webdevelopment und Marketing und dieser Kurs war echt herausragend und spitze. Respektvoller und freundlicher Umgang, die Lehrer/in freundlich, hilfsbereit und sehr sehr wissend im Thema.

    Orientation Course at DCI

    Since day one at the Digital Career Institute (DCI), I was very impressed at the thoroughness and professionalism. Daniel Hauenstein, my advisor at DCI practically did everything for me to join DCI. When we started HTML Basics and then CSS Basics, I loved the curriculum. It was easy taught. I could immediately start writing HTML and CSS. The teacher made it easy to understand and to use. It was a great experience, a good way to start a career in the digital world. I stro...

    Worst school. Bad teachers

    Worst school. There are better schools that will train you better and give you a better experience. Their teachers do not have enough experience to either Teach nor work experience. It seems that they hire former students. They seem to be after the money instead of the quality experience for their students. I can mention so many other better school with better programs. Flatiron School, Fullstack Academy, are way better schools with better structure also Clarusway is another school that ...

    Don't recommend

     I was in the 1 years web development course and besides the language( German) which i loved, I found out ( the hard way) that their curriculum and what they've promised to deliver in the orientation course, well... was a lie. From a lack of student support  to some of the people they hire to teach there, I realized that DCI still lacks in some of the crucial department s.  I would recommend looking for an alternative and keep this as a really really last resort as I later found out myse...
