      Enrolling for this bootcamp is one of the best steps I have taken towards enhancing my career this year. Cyber security is an important aspect of our digital world today and this training has equipped me with the necessary skill set I needed to excel in the field. I'm currently on an internship and I’m just waiting to take my certification exams before taking the next big step. 

      Excellent lesson structure and proficient tutors. This course which is self paced which gives you the freedom to work while studying. It’s also super affordable, and there are installment payment plans to suit different circumstances.

      This was the first data science course I have undertaken, and I must say, it was worth the while.  There is a lot to study; the coaches provide extra materials that helps you understand everything. They are also very professional and designed the course curriculum in a way that’s suitable for all students.

      The projects and exercises are very realistic, and once you complete 50% of the course, you are on your way to begin learning Machine, Deep Learning, and Data Science in-depth. 

      The course is well structured, with self-paced courses and tutors were hands on ground to provide all the support I needed. The tutors took their time to break down complex concepts like as descriptive and inferential statistics. You'll also get a completion certificate at the end which is a major plus when job hunting.

      I have heard about cloud computing, and I had no idea what it means. It was through a friend who was finding it difficult to explain it to me that I registered for this course, and that's the most important decision I have taken this year. This course was designed to help people because I don't understand why it's cheap than the values I derived here. I went from asking what cloud means to pass excellently in cloud computing.
      Above the comfortable way of delivering the lecture, the virtual lab I practiced made it easier to learn. The students' support also made me adapt to the course well enough. This is more than an introduction to cloud computing, as I have learned many programming languages. I studied public administration in my college, and I have seen many ways to apply this course to my profession.
       
      If you're skeptical about online lectures, I will recommend this one for you as you will not only have supportive tutors who will also help in interview preparation; you will also learn at your own pace no matter how novice you are to programming. I thought the admission process would be a hassle, but I found it more comfortable than expected. I will thank the tutors for how this course has impacted me. All in all, the money for registration is an investment that I would relish for many years. HTML, many javascript concepts are what I will never forget from this class.

      To say that the journey was breathtaking will be an understatement; it was worth every time, money, and attention. I can vividly recount my 28 weeks of online training experience, it was worth the while. Though I have had experience in the fields of penetration Testing, and Networking, I came to discover new areas like Python, business data analysis, and Penetration Testing. 

      Their course curriculum is quite considerate. It took me through a step-by-step practical procedures, with each step opening new doors of knowledge as I proceeded. The native English accent the tutors use made the whole lecture very to understand, and that really helped me comprehend the whole tutorials faster. 

      The lectures are practical, coupled with the student support program that allows each student to ask questions directly to the lecturer involved. The cybersecurity Bootcamp course changed my perception about cybersecurity, especially how it affects financial institutions and other corporate bodies. The career support section of the program helped me have a realistic knowledge on how the job as a cybersecurity expert works. It gave me a comprehensive insight about the world of cybersecurity outside these online classrooms. 

      Before now, I have always had problems with visual clarity when it comes to attending online courses. But I must give it to their website engineers, their live tutorial videos are pretty HD clear: that thing can make you focus, for long. Today, I am working towards taking a job as a developer, with special emphasis on developing effective security frameworks, all thanks to this course. All thanks to those who have made this possible.

      This course I quite long because it entails a lot. I’ve never had a course that had such a great balance of theory and real life practice. I really like the instructors. Good vocal range and explicit explanations that makes it easier to grasp each concept.  They also offered excellent practical tips that always came handy when I was practicing in the virtual lab. 

      The tutors provided a clear and comprehensive explanation of complex concepts like machine learning, predictive analysis and so on. My knowledge of python was simply basic when I registered, but now, I can analyze and visualize data using python, R, Excel and power BI. You’ll be surprised with how much you’ll know at the end of this course. Worth every penny.

      The labs are good because of the active nature, but lacking in description. Basically type tracert -d -h 3. What does all that other stuff mean? No clue. you'll figure out later if you self study which is the majority of how this bootcamp operates. They promised instruction that " will not be death by PowerPoint" (their words) but literally the entire class is that. the lectures are abysmal with horrible audio and bored instructors that sound like they're doing you a favor explaining complicated topics. Once you get to the CEH lectures they are done by EC council which you could just save money and do on your own. I spent about 40-60 hours outside of the course material studying to pass my Network+ exam. Originally what was supposed to take 6 months or be self paced is neither. After firing one of the teachers and moving cohorts around we are now nearing an 8 month course and you cannot access anything unless you wait for the entire class to get to that point. It does allow for time to study on actual valuable things like playing around with Kali or exam practice(Also promised- not part of this).

      With so many free or cheaper options out there (which i needed to study anyway) to learn this material, I am having serious buyers remorse. This is operated through Quickstart and Im not sure who keeps giving them money. Look it up they just got a huge investment. I guess taking advantage of people who don't know what else is out there pays off!

      The only actual pros besides the labs and projects are the teachers and people who work for the company are very responsive and helpful. 2 stars is being generous. But all of this could have been done cheaper and in a shorter time frame.

      Great Course!! Course will really help people who are looking to shift to data analyst field. The course has helped me enhance my excel skill to next level which is important in the corporate level.  It also helped me with learning two new skills i.e T-SQL & Power Bi. With this course is got to learn how to analyze my data, sort it properly and also to help in visualizing the data. T-SQL videos lectures were easy to understand and the assessments really helped me with learning the language better. Lastly, Power Bi lectures were important to learn because they are the top tool to visualize data in today's world. So, Overall this course has helped me build my skillset and be ready for the corporate world.

      Enrolling into this program was a good thing after all, online training has always been my source of knowledge, but there’s more to this course. It has helped me in more than one way, one of which is knowing the most advanced tool to use in the niche. The teaching strategy is awesome. As it is, I have full knowledge of Programming Concepts HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Node.JS, and jQuery. 
       
      The training paid off. The instructor's mentoring approach was good, the tutorial very informative and easy to understand the basic web development languages like HTML, Java, and many more. This training supported me to achieve my career goals as a web developer.

      Some of the explanations weren’t in-depth enough. I don’t find the lectures to be as engaging as I thought it would be. Though most of the tutors did great with their explanations, some either did explain it well or didn’t properly explain certain concepts. 

      The course can also do with more examples. Having more examples would better explain these concepts to students. The virtual lab was, however, very beneficial in trying out new things. There was also incredible support in all areas, from academics to employment. 

      Overall, the course would be more engaging if there's a great balance between theory and practical aspects. It's best for a beginner looking to start a career in cloud computing.

      This is the best course to get a solid foundation in data science, especially if you are a novice like me. I like how everything was made simple, and students are encouraged to try out new things in the virtual lab. The instructors are awesome. They are my superstars, who were always there to provide support and explain different things to me.

      I got to find out that when it comes to programming, what matters most is practice. The more I practiced my Python and R, the more efficient I became.  I’m extremely glad I took this course. I learned a lot. Thank you.

    Thanks!
