    I would not recommend this course to anyone/They are not honest

    I was in the free five-week Coding Foundations course. I am giving them a low rating because of the experience I received from the course. They are not honest about their programs either. For instances, they state you can enter their program with no experience. It is not true. Also, you will be treated as an outcast if you have a degree. They have rude Learning Assistants in the course. In addition to the rude Learning Assistants, you are given a personal effort report which is 20 percen...

    Not one bad experience!

    I am going to sound so cheesy, but it is true! Eleven Fifty literally was cornerstone in my success in tech. Every person I came in contact with at Eleven Fifty was golden, even if I was asking the same questions over and over. I always had support. This program launched me into my dream job. I could not have done it without this organization.

    CyberSecurity

    My experience with Elevenfifty Academy was spectacular.  I didn’t come in with any IT experience besides being vaguely aware of some topics related to networking and came out with two real IT certifications, a breadth of knowledge  that set me up for a career in IT.  I graduated in Aug 2021 and landed a job at a NOC just a month later with the help and advice of the career placement advisor.  I’m 4 weeks Into my new job and loving every minute!  Thanks for everything EFA!

    Eleven Fifty Bootcamp

    This bootcamp was great!  I came into the program with very limited, basic knowledge on computers.  All my instructors, and at times my classmates as well, were able to help break topics and ideas down in a way that I could understand them.  I feel like I grew and learned so much information in such a short amount of time.  I did a part-time bootcamp, which was a really good pace for me as a beginner.  I really appreciate the patience my instructors had and all the time they put in, both...

    Career Changing

    Eleven Fifty was everything my career needed and more. The pathways that are opened through the career services team are immense. While intense at times, the coursework sets you up to succeed beyond the classroom and the support throughout the duration of the class makes it very manageable. Coming into the course I had zero experience in software development but quickly adapted and learned due to the hands-on approach this boot camp takes. I highly recommend Eleven Fifty.

    Rewarding

    Eleven Fifty was quite the rewarding experience. I came forth with a small background in coding. Nothing major, other than a small intro to HTML class that I've taken at a university. I felt the rate of what I was learning at college to be slow, and expensive! I made the decision to check out EFA (Eleven Fifty Academy), and it was life changing! Enrolling in their Web Dev course, I was able to take my skills beyond my expectations. In 6 months, I was able to soak in and demonstrate about...

    A wonderful door to better opportunities

    Eleven fifty academy gave me a solid foundation in web development on which to build and grow upon. In addition, their wonderful career services department is willing to help you for the long term. If you get a job, then years later end up unhappy or out of work - you can link back up with EFA to resume the job hunt.
