Response From: Rebecca of Lighthouse Labs
Title: Marketing Manager
Friday, Apr 22 2016

Hi Jason,

We wanted to take the time to respond to you personally. We are really sorry that this is the impression or experience you've had with us, and would love to hear more about it. All of us at Lighthouse are highly dedicated to our students success, and we do our very best to make no claims about our program being easy (it is a very difficult program). It is true that we do cover a great deal of material in a short amount of time, the true goal of the intensity of the program is to make sure that our graduates are absolutely prepared for the workforce. We try to make that expectation crystal clear in every interaction with prospective students from our website, our admissions process, and face-to-face interactions with any of our staff member. We get validation of this approach through the constant feedback we receive from our students who appreciate being pushed out of their comfort zone.

We’ve setup a rigorous admissions process, which consists (at minimum) of an hour long face-to-face interview dedicated to setting the expectations of how intensive our program is, and evaluating the applicant's passion for coding, their grit, and their ability to handle a program this intensive. We do our best to only accept applicants we believe can succeed, and we have a generous refund policy in case they someone needs to withdraw. If this was not the case from either experience or expectation perspectives- we’d want to hear about it.

In regards to our staff, so far anyone who has come through our program have attested to how much our staff care about student success: we all put 150% into making the experience as personal as possible. We encourage students to provide daily feedback, and we work really hard to action that feedback. We've never claimed you will make hundreds of thousands of dollars on graduation – we recently published our Student Outcomes Report, which shares our student outcomes data with the intention of being more transparent.

We are always open to feedback, if you have gone through our program, you likely know us all well and are welcome to reach out to any of us, or the Education team via Slack, give us a call or shoot me a line to hello@lighthouselabs.ca

Best,
Rebecca
