    Data Scientist Professional Training

    The data science program offered by Practicum is very well structured to help you succeed. I enrolled this program knowing nothing about programming, and the lessons offered in the platform offered enough practice, examples, and projects to practice the skills that I learned in the program. I had recently graduated from the University of Florida with a BS in biochemistry and I wanted to apply my analytical skills in data science, and Practicum offered me that bridge I needed to learn the...

    Amazing learning experience for all skill levels and stages of life

    Although I have a background in statistics through my studies in public health, I always felt really unprepared to enter into a data-related career and counted myself out of so many jobs and opportunities because of it. But even after going through just half of the Practicum Data Scientist curriculum, I have grown not only in my hard skills but also in my confidence to pursue a career as a data scientist. The support system is excellent and all the tutors and instructors are incredibly k...

    Software Engineering Bootcamp with Practicum-Yandex

    Here are some of my thoughts about the P-Y Software Engineering Bootcamp.  I’ve been involved for about five months since the beginning of 2022.  That’s almost half-way through the nine-month, part-time program.  I find this bootcamp to be a very powerful learning platform. The course is a combination of online course material, interaction with an experienced tutor, online coding videos, projects with rigorous reviews...

    Web Development Intro Course

    The free intro course by Practicum fulfills it's purpose well. It introduces you to the learning platform with a very light introduction to HTML & CSS. It also gives you direct access to  Practicum personnel that are able to answer your questions about the program. At the end of the course it gives you an idea if Web Development is something you may choose to pursue. The sales rep is helpful and not pushy. From my limited experience the people at Practicum want to provide a quality l...

    Practicum experience was the best thing I did this year, from theory to practice, even before finishing I was passing interesting interviews. I improved my portfolio significantly and feel I'm way more confident in my hard skills but also soft skills…- Projects and reviews are on point, - Courses encompass all that you will need to master the field. And you can turn back to summaries when you want to.- Slack channels are very organized.- Instru...

    An outstanding platform to learn sequentially and implement the gained knowledge

    Studying in the ‘Data Analyst’ program conducted by ‘Practicum by Yandex’ was a nice experience for me to learn lots of new things in a sequential and well-organized way.

    A basic introductory course, Python and Basic Data Analysis has been provided for free where anyone can get an idea of the style of the program. Almost everything that is necessary has been included in the mainstream in an organized way and explained in a nice manner so that it has become easier for s...

    I thought this was it, but it wasn't

    Well, the first 2 weeks seemed great at Yandex-Practicum, then I discovered that their program is full of bugs which hinders understanding of the practical exercises. You have to message customer support who, in some cases, just give you the answer, and unlock the next lesson for you. So you may not understand the practical tasks because you didn't even get a chance, but you'll need them later, for the project they ask you to submit every 2 weeks.   Lessons are lo...

    Head of Web Guidance Team

    Irina, hi! Thank you for such detailed feedback. We are very sorry that you had an unpleasant experience while studying with us. Our team has read your review and would like to respond to a few of your points: 

    • We will definitely look at the practical tasks you were mentioned, check them, and improve them to deliver a better educational experience for our students. We are also looking into the issue you raised about not being able to access new material until your project has been accepted.
    • Our program has a linear structure, and the tasks gradually increase in complexity, and are designed assuming students have mastered concepts introduced in earlier lessons. This is why students are required to finish a lesson before moving to the next one. 20 hours is the average amount of time our students spend studying per week. Some need more, some need less; the exact amount depends on previous experience, background, and other such factors.
    • There are Slack channels available to all students to post their questions. These channels are monitored by tutors, and there are no restrictions on when or how often you may ask questions. Additionally, our tutors are always ready to provide individual help via 1:1 sessions when students are struggling. We believe the immediately giving straight answers is not an efficient way to become a self-driven web developer. In your career, you'll constantly need to independently research new concepts, and we want to prepare you for this.
    • During code review, professional developers review projects, leaving suggestions and comments throughout the code. They target items to fix and areas of potential improvement. If a reviewer's comments are unclear, our tutors are available to clarify them. We believe code review is a very valuable experience.
    • Finally, we will provide you with a partial refund for the part of the program you did not complete. We are very sorry that our program was not a good fit for you, and we respect your decision to leave. Again, thank you for such comprehensive feedback. We wish you the best of luck in your future studies!

    Amazing Bootcamp Experience

    Practicum's Web Development program helped me find jobs and increased my skills. I got a job offer while studying and found freelancing jobs along the way. The program helped me think critically and solve problems myself without following tutorials. It really gave me the confidence to tackle and debug the code myself, thanks to the mentors. The mentors are very helpful and show you the way how to approach any bug. Career support is great. They have a dedicated section for career prep, re...
