    Horrible instructors, no curriculum

    I had a terrible experience and would not recommend the EFA online school.  I don't know anything about the in-person school, but I have heard some of the on-line instructors have moved to in-person learning, so I would expect a similar experience there.  If you look at their instructor profiles on their website:  https://elevenfifty.org/about/our-team/ , they are all recent EFA grads with no experience in teaching or coding.  As far as the executive staff...ignore them, because they wil...

    Full Stack Heaven

    I have attended EFA's Python course back in September of 2019. At that point, I was very skeptical of boot camps. I have done a large amount of research and landed between Flatiron or this. I'm glad that I stuck with EFA.

    The best part about the academy comes from its instructors. At first, I was concerned that I will be taught by someone who graduated the Academy itself. My concerns quickly vanished when I realized the level of tech acumen the instructors held. Majority of them a...

    Helped with Career Transition

    Simply put, Eleven Fifty Academy's approach works! With the skills I acquired through the 24-week Software Development Bootcamp, I was able to land an Entry Level Software Developer position with a company out of Indianapolis. I had zero programming/software development experience prior to enrolling in the course.

    Bootcamp Graduate

     I attended Eleven Fifty Academy part time and graduated in February 2021. The Hero's Care Act covered most of the tuition, allowing me to attend the web development course. The course was remote due to the pandemic, so it can be a bit challenging working remotely. This has been one of the best decisions of my life and I now have a contract position as  a web developer/web designer for a digital marketing company. This Bootcamp is very intense and not easy but it is worth it, especially ...

    This was a great experience for me. I transitioned from the real estate industry into tech and Eleven Fifty Academy was a great option to help prepare me. Beware, the curriculum is fast-paced as it packs a lot of knowledge is a short period of time! My instructor was a great teacher and was very knowledgeable. They even assisted me on some portions of my project that were outside of the scope for the class. The entire company is definitely focusing on continuous learning. I am know a Lea...

    Incredible Experience

    I attended the Web Development bootcamp at 1150 Academy and had a truly life-changing experience. Not only did I get introduced to code, I quickly became immersed in it. I got the hands-on experience of a real world dev environment with the support and accountability that the professors at 1150 offered. The careers team was paramount in getting my current role. I was assigned a personal representative from the careers team that helped me with every step of the process.

    Best Decision of my Life!

    It is never too late to start something new!

    I had been stuck in a job that paid well but drained my batteries more than it recharged them. That is where I finally learned that passion > paycheck. I decided to take advantage of the cares act and enroll in the 12 week Web Development bootcamp at Eleven Fifty. The one thing I noticed immediately after starting was, this is challenging but in a good way! I was getting challenged in ways that my previous jobs had never challenged m...
