    Career-propelling Course

    Springboard was a monumental help in getting me into my career as a Data Analyst. The course is a perfect blend between the analytics curriculum and career support which makes the job search upon completion much more manageable. The support from mentors and students is prevalent and helpful to your success in the course. I would recommend any of Springboard's course to anyone who is interested in stepping into a tech-oriented field.

    Data Analytics Career Track

    I was nervous, getting back into an educational program after a miserable time in higher education. However, Springboard turned out to be a good choice – self guided but also with a little bit of oversight, and a Pass/Fail system rather than worrying about grades and additional numbers! That being said, Springboard isn't perfect, and I hope that some of the changes I had mentioned to my mentor over the past 7 months get brought to someone's attention, or get fixed in some way. I do think...

    Springboard's UI/UX Design Career Track

    I recently completed the UI/UX Design Career Track with Springboard, and it was a good experience overall. The curriculum is comprehensive, well-structured, some areas need to be up-to-dated with industry trends, but it did help me grasp the fundamentals and advanced concepts of UX/UI design.
    One of the highlights of my journey with Springboard was the exceptional support I received from my mentors. They were not only knowledgeable and experienced but also genuinely invested in my lea...

    Springboard creates a step-by-step curriculum in order to pave the way for you to succeed in this ever-evolving industry. With the wonderful mentors and career coaches, this is perfect for me because I was switching from finance to cyber and needs a lot of guidance along the way.

    Great Course

    I really enjoyed the curriculum of this course. All of the units were very engaging and the instructor (Colt Steele) did a great job explaining. Even when I got stuck, I had mentor oversight and was able to get any problem addressed quickly.

    The SEC program for Software Engineering was a really thorough course. There was good content in the course materials covering a lot of industry standard approaches to working with frameworks such as Flask and large code bases. I was impressed that Springboard was continually updating the course material as I was enrolled and as new technology was being released.

    Good Foundation

    I started from nothing and now I can say I have learned frontend and backend development. I was paired with a great mentor who also worked as a Senior Software Engineer. I gained a lot of insight through them and I they gave me the push I needed. This course started with the very basics of Javascript, html, and css. Then it taught the front end and backend programming. Personally, it took me longer to finish because I had difficulty staying on track, but I recommend it to students who ar...
