    Great Experience

    I completed the User Experience course recently via Skillcrush. I was drawn to skillcrush due to their compassionate approach and eagerness to help you succeed. The course layout is organized and easy to navigate. The course materials are thorough and understandable. The course could have had more hands on practice, but overall, I feel confident in the skills I learned. I am highly satisfied with my experience and will return for the Visual Design course. Happy Learning!

    Skillcrush is Awesome!

    I’ve learned a great deal in a short amount of time. Much of Skillcrush is hands on, with projects of HTML and CSS for you to get started with in the first few weeks of classes.  The teachers are very quick to respond to emails- but be ready to put your self reliance to the test. After all- if you want confidence enough in your coding skills to impress the interviewer at your next job interview, you need to be able to do the job description and then some!

    SkillCrush Review

    AMAZING course. Great content and curriculum that is perfectly paced. Responsive teachers who are super helpful. And I've met graduates who have gone on to have incredibly successful careers after starting with Skillcrush. Great place to learn how to do tech even if you have absolutely no background in it. All you need is curiosity and a willingness to learn.

    HTML/CSS 101

    In this course we learned the basics of creating a one page website.  We had 22 lessons, each with 4-10 steps per lesson, so it was a great way to approach this new skill.  Each lesson was bite-sized, and well explained.  I had never coded anything in my life, and at the end of the course I was not only able to follow the instructions, but then created my own one-page site based on the skills I learned.  Plus the instructors are amazing!  They really cheer you on as you work through the ...

    Break into Tech

    I started the Break into Tech course in 2019, but was sidetracked by Covid and have now returned. Even with the few skills, I learned back then, I felt confident to begin making a much-needed career change. I was lucky enough to have signed up then. The course is a lifetime membership. Even though I signed up in 2019, with the lifetime membership I have been able to take part in any updates in the curriculum that was already part of the original course I purchased. There are tones of sup...

    Affordable, Personable, and Applicable!

    I started with Skillcrush's User Experience Design blueprint, then added on the Visual Design blueprint then ultimately invested in the Break Into Tech package. I found that the skills all built on top of one another to give me the skills and confidence I needed to apply to jobs. I came in at the perfect time to take advantage of the job guarantee which gave me personalized career coaching! 

    Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting an affordable but highly effective program th...

    Great, guided intro to tech mastery!

    I love Skillcrush. I had an interest in tech careers for years, but it wasn't until I took their quiz about how I might fit into the tech field that I actually took the leap. What I love about Skillcrush personally is that everything is so clearly laid out and organized. I think people have learned to code on their own time for free, but for me, the convenience and knowing that I am getting the right tools and practice is invaluable. I love the platform, I love the practices, I love that...

    The best!

    I’ve learnt so much on Skillcrush and the support you get is phenomenal. Whenever I got stuck someone was always a click away and they always responded within the hour! The lessons are super easy to digest and where it gets challenging there’s always someone to help. 10/10 would recommend to anyone wanting to learn new tech skills or even refresh old ones.

    Loving life as a skillcrusher

    I enrolled in Skillcrush a few weeks ago and am so happy I did. I had previously been looking into doing a more intensive bootcamp when I stumbled over Skillcrush. The lessons take you step by step through the process and there is always an instructor ready to answer any questions you may have. I have found that the lessons are upbeat and positive which helps you to get through those moments when you start to doubt yourself or your motivation is wavering. Thanks so much to all the skillc...

    Break Into Tech - Front End Development

    I have just finished HTML & CSS and so far this course has been amazing! The great thing about it is that you can go at your own pace but you do need to stay on top of your work and assignments in order to get it done in a timely manner. In a few weeks, I have learned HTML and CSS and have completed the portfolio website that I will be using for interviews. It has been such a fast and exciting process I can't wait to see what the rest of the course has in store. I am...

    UX Design Blueprint

    Overall, I really like the classes because all lectures, assignments, and projects are straight forward. I was looking for a Bootcamp course went I came across Skillcrush. Did little research on them and made my decision to signed up for their Design and Development courses (User Experience & Python). I really enjoyed the classes and the format it was presented in. I liked the assignments that connected the subject matter to relevant, contemporary issues.

    Best way to learn tech!

    I happened to stumble upon Skillcrush by accident when looking for a new career to pursue, and it was the best accident I could have asked for! What drew me in was the free week bootcamp they offer to get a glimpse of what the courses entail. I immediately became interested just by the way the instructors were presenting the material. It felt very warm, friendly, and inviting. They did a great job of making it feel comfortable and not intense for anyone who may be trying to learn tech fr...
