    UX Design Career Track

    The Springboard program does a great job to creating a "springboard" into the UX Design Field. You are taught the fundamentals of the industry and provided coaching along the way. The industry design project is the most valuable aspect to the course, as you have a chance at really industry work and experience. Overall wonderful program, people, and content.

    GREAT CHOICE!!!

    It's hard to find a Bootcamp that cares. I won't mention the other one I almost took, but let's just say that the mentor I would have been working with for the duration of my time, IMMEDIATELY gave off vibes of wanting to get off the initial call once 30 minutes had gone by and it rhymed with Splinterfaction Resign Crownbation. Again, don't want to mention names. 

    Then I came across Springboard, as skeptical as ever and was given a list of mentors to choose from and have an initia...

    UX Design course

    I started back in April 6 months ago and I finally completed my course.

    Data Analytics

    Honestly, I don't see any cons with Springboard. Staff is great and mentors are fantastic. When they say that the mentors are experts in the field, they mean it. The pros that I felt are note worthy are flexibility, mentors are VERY knowledgably and helpful, Springboard site is very easy to navigate, and Springboard does a great job at keeping track of your progress. Many bootcamps have great offers but not the flexibility. I was not ready to drop my job to go back to school. Springboard...

    Excellent Course Overall

    I am a recent Springboard grad with 2 years of experience studying Computer Science in college prior. I decided that I'd prefer to learn in a safer and more secure format with Springboard's job guarantee than potentially not get hired post college and be drowning in student loans -- even though tech is definitely a field in which most will do absurdly well financially. When everything is already online, you really don't miss out on much in comparison to university. College really only ha...

    Student

    I did Hack Reactors prep, and I also did Springboards prep! Springboard did a better job of explaining the concepts and gave me better understanding of all the programming languages (HTML, CSS, JavaScript). Hack Reactor did not review HTML nor CSS, and they also did not have a 1-on-1 mentor to help with any questions. I was lead here from a guy who attended and graduated from both schools, and he told me to go with Springboard over Hack Reactor! I think Colt Steele is really good at teac...

    Enjoyed prep course

    I enjoyed the prep course. However, I think there were some aspects of the course that can definitely be approved. I often times felt like my questions weren't answered when it came to the actual skills test being taken. I was just told to try again. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the course. Overall it was organized very well.

    Great place to learn all the skills I need!

    Springboard is a mentor lead Bootcamp that helps people make the transition into the tech world. I love that I get to talk to my mentor every week and got a chance to work with the real clients at the end of the cohort. It was a great experience and exposure! Throughout the course, I can schedule calls with mentors or career coaches at any time to get more support for my projects and job search.

    Great school with an excellent mentorship program

    I just finished the Springboard UX Career Track and have begun my Job Search as of today.

    I first heard about Springboard when I was looking at changing my career path, and my friend suggested I look into UX and the course Springboard offered (they had never gone to Springboard, only heard of it). From my research, UX ended up being a field that intrigued and excited me but finding an online course that would work for me was the hinge-point - specifically because I've had poor exp...
