    Great Start to Coding

    I finished Coding Foundations today and it has been wonderful, hard, at times a depressing and rewarding experience. I had a really great cohort and met some amazing people in this program. We did have our first teacher leave halfway through the program, which threw some of us off a little as they were an amazing teacher and then we had to switch to a completely new teaching style. Our new teacher was knowledgeable and a little faster paced than our previous one. I was fine with the fast...

    Awesome Program that Changes Lives

    I was a student in the full-time cybersecurity program. It was highly intense, and extremely fast paced. You have to learn how to learn quickly, and place priority on classes. For the full-time classes, it may not be possible at all to work while taking these classes, it's that intense. You have to be fully mentally, physically, and emotionally prepared to invest everything possible, but it is possible. I had amazing support from instructors, amazing classmates, and awesome support from ...

    EFA saved my life and career!

    EFA was a total shock. I’ve been in a few bootcamps before, and they all were like “here’s the book, good luck.” EFA gives you a book and so many other tools. They also give a personal touch. Every Instructor is personally invested in you and your growth. You just don’t see that in other programs. It’s a fast pasted environment, but if you need it to slow down, your instructors make the time to help. The CompTIA information is out there, you can get that anywhere. The people make EFA! EF...

    10/10

    Eleven Fifty Academy gave me the opportunity to get into a field I was highly interested in but had little experience or knowledge of how to do that. I was able to graduate with both Net+ and Sec+ on my first attempts and am currently studying for the CySA+ certification and I can already tell how my time at Eleven Fifty has given me the solid foundation I needed to build a career out of it. I am excited to continue my career and because of EFA I know what direction I want to go.

    Eleven Fifty Academy Changed My Life

    Eleven Fifty Academy changed my life, and I would tell everyone I know.   After graduating college and failing to get into a graduate program, I was left working at a liquor store for ten dollars an hour.   After months and months of searching, I finally landed a job using my degree, and I was more miserable than I thought possible. One morning, I woke up to an email saying I had been laid off. My wife and I were devastated.   ...

    Not As Advertised (An Honest Review for WD104 Cohort Sept. 2021–Dec. 2021

    I came to Eleven Fifty Academy hoping to “transform” or “launch” myself into technology because it is a rapidly growing field. I began on September 13th, 2021, and had no coding experience except for a semester of basic programming in high school. I knew it would be difficult to learn to code, but the way they advertised it to me was I’d feel comfortable enough to go against the job applicants that came out of an undergraduate CompSci program upon graduation. This was not the case. The g...

    I called for a hero. EFA answered.

     I found out about EFA in the middle of 2021 when a lot of things were uncertain in this world. I had recently purchased a new home, adopted a wonderful dog, and was helping my family during a tough time involving cancer- so I already had a lot on my plate. I decided to go to EFA due to a need to change things as well as pivot to a new opportunity to help people.

    EFA delivered in full. While I am not the best student, I had a drive to learn and a need to help others (as well as a ...

    EFA Cybersecurity

    Eleven Fifty Academy absolutely changed my life. I was a truck driver who hated trucking. I left trucking in October of 2020 to go through the EFA Cybersecurity course. The instructors were amazing, answering any and every question I could throw at them (and there were a lot of questions). They were knowledgeable and patient with me and helped me to become the Cybersecurity professional that I am today. When I left high school over 10 years ago now, I thought I was stupid and incapable o...

    Cyber Security Boot Camp

    2020 was a difficult year for a lot of people. I spent 6 years building my career with Sprint and had managed to climb the leadership ladder but the merger dissolved my role. I then took my talents to ATT and started climbing building a career there but COVID hit fast and hard and my role was also dissolved. I felt so lost and aimless, I felt like I was going back to the drawing board but had no idea where to even start. I decided to do one of the scariest things I have ever done, and I ...
