    Best Online School

    I had an amazing time with Springboard.  Amazing design experience from the ground up, fantastic support, great coaches, but above all the best mentorship experience.  My mentor will be a friend for life and will be invaluable to my career in the future.  Nothing but positive things to say about my Springboard experience.

    Not worth it

    I'm near the end of my program and I can't imagine being less satisfied with my experience at Spring board. With the exception of some members of the career team their staff is entirely unhelpful. I've never spoken to my student advisor despite multiple attempts and I'm working with my second mentor after the first one rushed me off of each call and now my second just doesn't show up. Most of the coursework is not unique to Springboard you're essentially paying a big pricetag for a subsc...

    Amazingly helpful experience

    The only cons to the bootcamp are the fact that the labs are simple click and post labs. Outside of this, the resources availble to help grow, amazing mentors with current experience in the field, career coaches with experience in the job market, and full control of how to manage time and generous payment options, all contribute to how amazing Springboard is for anyone getting into cybersecurity. Furthermore, they also prepare you to take the Security + and pay giving you the ultimate st...

    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...

    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.
