    A Great Opportunity

     I attended the Immersive Full Stack Web Dev Bootcamp at the Draper Helio Campus in the Spring of 2020. I graduated at the end of April and accepted a job offer as a Software Developer at the end of May.  My Background  To get the most out of my review, I think it is important to understand my previous experience. At the time of taking the class I had an engineering degree and had been working as an Environmental Eng...

    MERN Full Stack

    My experience at Helio was excellent. I took the immersive full-stack course, having absolutely no experience with coding or programming, and in under four months, I am well on my way to becoming a legitimate junior web developer. My classmates were incredible, and we all helped and encouraged one another. Matt, my admissions advisor was helpful from start to finish, checking in to make sure I felt good about what I was learning and that I felt comfortable in the class. Career Servic...

    Lies

    Hey everyone, this is going to be the most honest and serious review I have ever written here on Google reviews. If you’re looking for a place to learn these types of “boot camps” then I would recommend going back to school to learn it. These boot camps are full of nothing but lies and promises that they try so desperately to cover up. I did take both boot camps for the web dev certificate. The first class was online and the second class was a hybrid of going to class and doing...

    Jordan,


    Your feedback is appreciated. However, the entire story has not been told and much of what your review purports to be true is very inaccurate. In an effort to be transparent and fair, the following bullet points will directly address your comments:


    • We do not have an HR department; it is assumed that by "HR" you mean Career Services. 
    • Amy is the Career Services manager. She is fair and direct but has not been referred to as "mean" by anyone else who's taken a course from Helio. Contrary to the claims made in your review, documentation shows that communication between you and Amy was at all times professional, courteous, and considerate on her part. 
    • Career Services offers three incredibly valuable workshops, which are a part of the course. Attending and completing these workshops is a requirement to be considered a graduate from Helio Training. You attended none of these in person and did not follow through on the assignments. 
    • Career Services worked with you numerous times on your resume, which was both unprofessional and not up to par with tech industry expectations. Documentation shows you failed to make suggested edits despite several attempts to aid you in this process. 
    • You failed to complete any of the Career Services assignments, each of which is designed to help students achieve success in finding a job. These missed assignments include developing/strengthening your online profile--primarily LinkedIn and Slack, completing suggested edits on resumes, mock interviews with industry professionals, attending relevant meet-ups, and providing a report on the minimum required amount of submitted job applications per week. 
    • In reference to the Tuition Reimbursement Guarantee (TRG): You signed a document that outlined the required steps that you, as a student, must complete in order to qualify for the TRG. Many of these requirements were outlined previously, namely working with Career Services on your resume, attending all workshops, applying to a minimum number of jobs per week and submitting a tracking summary, participating in various exercises designed to prepare students for interviews and employment in the industry. You failed to do these things and therefore did not qualify for the TRG. 
    • You assert that you knew "a few people" who did "several if not a dozen interviews" but did not get job offers. Nowhere in our process or communication do we promise a set number of interviews before guaranteeing employment. We do, however, communicate to each student multiple times over their respective course(s) that they may need to apply and interview many times before receiving an offer. This process is affected by many variables--the student's previous work history, strength of resume, relevant experience, Certification of Proficiency, preparation for interviews and more. Without completing the steps and working with Career Services in earnest, the number of submitted applications and interviews is likely to greatly exceed the number of applications and interviews one would participate in were they to follow the path laid out by Career Services. We have documentation to support this. 
    • You assert that the job market is "washed out" and that making $60k a year is unrealistic. There are multiple job sites that successfully argue against your claim, showing that hundreds of jobs exist along the Wasatch Front at any given time, with thousands available across the country. Furthermore, our average graduate starts at approximately $60k a year; this information is documented and verified. 
    • You state that Helio never checks up on students after completing a course; this is inaccurate. We publically state that students are welcome to retake or shadow a course for a year after completing their original course, and we have processes in place to assist students seeking Proficiency well after their course has ended. This is made aware to all students and many take advantage of these offerings, to their benefit. 
    • You claim an article you read states there is one tech job per two graduates, but you neither cite the article nor expand upon the details. A quick google search can show evidence contrary to your claim. We also show that in 2019 over 80% of Helio graduates who completed a course in the same year have a job in the industry. 

    In addition to the information above, we have documentation showing that on several occasions you called into class from your car while traveling. Any chance at success will be slim if students are not present for class, are unable to participate fully in class, and/or do not complete the recommended and required tasks offered by Career Services and instructors. We have documentation that shows the vast majority of students who do these things end up graduating from Helio and successfully join the tech industry.

    We understand that the outcome you received did not reflect the outcome you desired, but documentation shows that your claims are neither factual and do not appear to have been delivered in good faith. We welcome feedback and strive to improve when opportunities present themselves. If you would like to reach out to us or come by the campus and discuss what options we may have for you, please let us know.

    Keeping the Dream Alive

    I chose Helio because they demonstrated that they would be there for their student beyond the duration of the course. The opportunity to shadow a future class to further solidify one's knowledge and understanding seemed like a great way to support students that really wanted to stick with it but may have struggled through the class. So like they say if at first, you don't succeed try try again! So I was sold and enrolled ready to take on the challenge.

    Helio is an awesome place to learn.

    Helio is an awesome place to learn. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Be prepared to put in work though as this is not a passive learning environment, you will have to put in plenty of time to actually learn how to code as it is not simple memorization. Pricing is great compared to other bootcamps!

    Best decision of my life!!

    After fiddling around with a free online code school, a friend put me on to Helio Training. I got so lucky! There are several bootcamps in the SLC area, but from the research I've done, none compares to Helio Training. I initially signed up for the After Hours Fullstack course, but soon found myself without a job on a Friday. I called Matt up and he got me into the Fullstack Immersive course the following Monday.

    The admissions dept ROCKS! It's been a thrill of a ride learning all ...

    Like eating vegetables...

    This course may not be the most pleasant at all times (more on this later), but if you make the plunge, and you commit and work hard it'll be one of the best things you do.

    The title of this post sums it up pretty well. Boot camps inherently will not be 100% pleasant. You're jamming everything together in a very short span to learn things.

    As for myself, I'm a current student that's doing really well in class. I've dedicated a lot of time into researching l...

    You get Twice out what you put in.

    I attended Helio from Fed - May 2018. I was in the full stack immersive class. The class provides all the information on all the current technologies that are being used in the Salt Lake Area. Our instructor went through all of the coding languages that we were learning quickly and provided several placed to learn more and improve skill. In class, we were given the basics and expected to put in time after hours to dig deeper and improve our skills. We spent the first 8 weeks learning...

    Full Stack - Part Time Evenings

    I have had such a great experience with Helio! When I first walked through the doors, I knew next to nothing about web development. Upon receiving my certification of proficiency, not only do I feel competent in the skills I've learned but I am able to incorporate my skills at a new job I've recently started. 

    The instructors are great and the space was friendly. I would highly recommend Helio to anyone interested in a web dev bootcamp.

    Recent bootcamp grad

    When I first started the part-time full stack course I knew very little about html/css and had basic computer skills. It was A LOT of information to cover in 14 weeks and you do need to study outside of class, with that said I was able to challenge myself to learn something completely different, become a better learner, and learn the latest programming languages and applications. You definitely get what you put in. I couldn't have done it without the support from the mentors, instructors, ...

    Student

    Last Month I had the privilege of graduating at Helio Training. I came here with no coding exerience and I left the school with more exerience then I ever dreamed i would. Helio Training has an amazing staff from the teachers, to the mentors, to the Career Advisor, to the President of Helio Training. There is no mistake that this has been a journey but it was worth it.
