      Before I decided to join this training program, I decided to look for reviews about this course. I decided to try, and I must say that the feedback I read wasn't wrong. It was exactly how they said it would be. So far, this course is one of the best coding courses I've ever bought. It doesn't matter what level you are( beginners or experts). You would find this course very helpful. It's entirely up to date, and my teachers were able to help me get to my peak quickly. I must say that the classes are very convenient for people who have a busy schedule. I'm glad I'm certified and also have a budding portfolio.

      The Cybersecurity course was superb. It was very informative, and the instructors covered all materials given. It has boosted my career portfolio. There was an unavoidable need for me to be certified to fulfill a new position. Due to time constraints, I thought that I would not complete the Cybersecurity course requirements. But with the support and assistance I received from my instructors, coupled with the friendly environment, I was able to complete the course, get the completion certificate and also pass my CompTIA Network+ certification exams. 

      The curriculum was voluminous, yet my professional instructors covered everything. My instructors taught me the global tracking and hacking infrastructures that cover the GCHQ, FBI, NSA, CIA, China's MSS, and other intelligence agencies' capabilities. Overall it was an experience I wouldn’t mind for a second time, and it was worth it.

      Cloud computing has been top of the list sort after skill for me. But where and how to get this skill has always been a challenge. I am a busy man, needed a flexible but world-class online institute to meet my need, and this program was just right for me. The curriculum is top-notch and ticks every aspect of cloud computing.
      I have always had doubts about online training based on past experiences, but this one made a difference. No doubt, every package in this program was well thought out. Even the admission process is seamless.  The online lectures are second to none, and the instructors are fantastic; always make sure that you understand every bit of the course as you progress. The student support service for me was beneficial, especially since it was online. Other aspects I loved are the live mentoring session, virtual labs, and simulations that address every real-life problem. The tuition is also very affordable, considering the entire package coupled with interview and certification examination preparation. With my experience in this course, I knew I was ready to be a cloud computing professional.

      Lies from the outset. I was told this program was affiliated with a university. They are not; they are a third party which teaches on its own and has no ties other than name with the school. My enrollment counselor could have made a used car salesman proud with his high pressure sales. I paid for my program in full at his urging to get a "discount" and was excited to start. Once I started, I was disappointed. The course modules are little more than cobbled together slides that tell you nothing of importance, with a YouTube video or two thrown in here and there. Then you are given a weekly assignment. The assignment has NOTHING to do with anything from the module, so you are left floundering with no instruction. Mandatory live lectures were lacking. The instructor would either mumble to himself while he did work on his own board without explaining anything, or ask other students to go around the room and go over their work. Requests for help were ignored or "Sorry you're having trouble. Here's a YouTube video..." Well, if I wanted to watch YouTube, I could do so for free and save several thousand dollars. I asked again and got a meeting with the "program director" (who wanted to meet during normal business hours...I guess they forgot the part where the class was geared to WORKING adults) and he also worked through boards while talking to himself and explained nothing. My academic advisor (who barely spoke English) would send me annoyed emails when this happened. By week 3 it was painfully obvious I had no idea what was going on. I had never used any of these programs and had no assistance in learning them. My classmates mostly had tech background, so they were all doing great. So I put in to drop the course and get a refund. I filed a support ticket for that and was told I needed to do an "exit interview" so we will see how that goes. My guess is they will try to convince me to stay or convince me why they will not release my money. This course MIGHT be good for those who already have a knowledge base, but aside from that, if you don't know what you're doing, you're going to be lost. I also have a feeling my money may be lost if I don't follow up legally depending how today goes. We will see. In any case, the main lesson I learned from this experience is to beware of these bootcamps, and if they resort to high pressure sales and promise the world, RUN!

       Both professors were well knowledge & cared about their students. Many different subjects to learn about & to go over. Over 50+ labs, not sure the exact number, practice exams for each subject, online lecture videos, & live professor classes weekly. Would recommend to a friend or family member.
      Michael my coach and Aly my Academic Advisor both have been great help.
      Thank you so much and strongly recommend.

      My name is Julian Ramirez and I am from West Palm Beach, FL. I had worked in Hospitality and Hospitality Management for approximately five years right up until the Covid-19 pandemic. When I was laid off for a few months I decided to follow a different career path as I had noticed that my father, a systems engineer, was experiencing nothing but job security amidst all of this chaos. This full stack web development bootcamp caught my eye as a potential entry point into the software development field as I had absolutely no prior experience. The staff, particularly my academic advisor Moses, was nothing but helpful and responsive during the enrollment process. In addition, the course instructor that I had, Zsolt, was exceedingly knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire program. The associate instructor Masood was always available for help in between sessions and was able to assist me in a few of my projects. Thanks to this bootcamp I have realized that I not only have an affinity for coding and programming, I actually enjoy it. This bootcamp has inspired me to pursue a second Bachelor's in software development and I will be sure to use all of the skills that I have acquired here to good use. My only feedback is that some of the courses are a bit dated (not by much, 2017 or so).

      With experience in technical support and some development experience, I decided to take the Web Development Bootcamp at Florida Atlantic University to expand my technical abilities and to learn how to professionally develop web applications. It should be noted that while the course is offered by FAU, it is facilitated by QuickStart, a 3rd party company based in TX. Enrolling in the program felt disjointed. The “admissions advisor” answered all my questions; however, I never received an orientation like I was told I would. The online platform of the course is very convenient, especially during the pandemic. The course itself was a mixed bag. The online course modules ranged from really good to really bad and felt like they were pulled together from other online bootcamps courses. Most of the course included video training from Microsoft, however, a handful was pulled from other sources, adding to the disjointed feeling of the bootcamp. In addition, to online study modules, there were five projects that needed to be completed, which your performance was mostly based on. I probably learned the most from the online projects, however, I found the fourth project to be substantially more difficult than the others. Given the time allowed to complete the project, the technical level of understanding if required, felt out of place. The course also features a bi-weekly “Question and Answer” session that turned out to be more like separate lectures than that of the online video modules. While the instructor was very knowledgeable and he covered the material that we were studying in the online modules, the “QA” sessions ended up being more of a lecture presented by the instructor. This was another disjointed aspect of the course as the online modules often presented the material differently than the instructor. Finally, I must mention the course just ended rather abruptly without any correspondence that the course ended or when to expect the certificate of completion. After the course, the career services is supposed to help with job placement. While I did receive a mock interview, I was never contacted by a recruiter to help place me. I managed to find a development job on my own. Overall, the bootcamp was a mixed experience. I would recommend it to someone who is already technical and can comprehend the material without much guidance, but I wouldn’t recommend it to a non-technical person that is looking to get into development; instead, I would recommend paying a little more for a more cohesive and reputable development course.

      This course started with Security fundamentals of hardware and operating system. It ended with preparation training and mock exams for both interview as well as certification exams including CEH (Certified Ethical Hacking), CompTIA A+, CompTIA Network+, CompTIA PenTest+ and Security+. The instructor did a wonderful job in taking it bit by bit till it sank in. 

      Well-structured and planned out course I must say, because everything worked out fine; online classes were good, student support and live mentoring sessions were highly commendable, virtual labs and simulations really nailed it, real world problems were simulated. 

      Other areas like Network and overall security fundamentals, Programming in Python, Ethical hacking and penetration testing. All these where not without details and comprehensive examples. This course is really nice for all looking to thrive in the world of IT and most especially Cybersecurity. Highly reccomended

      With full stack web development, you are sure of being up there competing with the best. CSS and HTML were well taught in this course, being the building block of the course and backbone on which web development is built, the tutors gave a everything to make sure no one was lest wandering in the dark. 
      The online lectures and live mentoring sessions were well structure and executed, all smiles for sure at the end. I was thrilled by the MySQL and Python classes, Bootstrap & WordPress, Responsive web design, ReactJS and ExpressJS and many more. The training materials were self-explanatory; the developers did a great job.
      This course is really a complete package.  Frond end as well as Back end of web development with enough examples and exercises for better understanding of its workings and application to live situations. Another interesting and very helpful part was the interview preparation; we were taught what to expect and how to tackle interview question and also certification exam preparation which helped guaranteed my success in my certification exams. This is indeed a nice course, recommended for developers new and experienced.

      The only language I knew before signing up was JavaScript. I’ll say basic Javascript picked up from Youtube. I was difficult taking online courses, especially if you lack self-motivation. That has always been my issue. But this course was different. Once I started, I never looked back. The motivation was just there. I might attribute it to the support that provided answers to any questions you have, but that’s just it. 

      The lectures were also well arranged. I seriously don't know how easy it is for the lecturers to teach both frontend development and backend development in such simple ways. Learning PHP, MySQL, Oracle, and Ruby are the best things I have done this year, and it’s all thanks to this course.

      As an intern on cybersecurity, my horizon has broadened in this aspect of tech-savviness.. Career support was rich and encompassing. I was adequately equipped for life during and after the course without leaving my destiny to fate. The instructors properly mentored everyone. 

      The online and self-paced courses allowed me to practice appropriately offline and apply the knowledge garnered in real-time, learned ethical hacking - by discovering the methods engaged in by hackers to a system and be abreast on how to checkmate their activities. The culmination of everything that ended at the certification examination was a ride to remember, I passed my exam excellently well, and I am happy. 

    Thanks!
