    Absolutely amazing!

    I am so happy that I chose the Tech Academy bootcamp. It really is so worth the cost. I was able to learn so much and in such a meaningful way. The staff is also incredibly helpful, I felt their genuine want to help me every time I reached out to someone. I cannot thank all the staff enough for their kindness and willingness to teach and guide me through this process.

    A great experience.

    I just graduated and it was a great experience. I highly recommend The Tech Academy, the instructors were fantastic and the part time option was just right. I was impressed from the very beginning, no assumptions were made about how much I knew or didn’t know. The curriculum is designed to give you a solid foundation and build on that foundation. The Tech Academy is a great choice for people who want to transition from a nontechnical industry to the tech industry.

    Learned a ton in a short time

    I attended the Fulltime full stack developer bootcamp for about 6 months and spent about 40 hours a week dedicated to it. I learned a tremendous amount and felt that the instructors were very patient and genuine people.

    Best structured Bootcamp hands down

    My time at the tech academy was an amazing rush of fun and knowledge. They start you off with the complete basics. Then you dive into it rather fast, BUT, it's structured so well that it's easy to learn as you go. I did it online, full time, while working and raising kids. If I'm able to graduate, you can too!

    Pros: 
    Structured
    Job Support ( These guys are crazy awesome. Sending you applications as well as resume advice)

    Rewarding eye opening amazing

    I have come to love the bootcamp that provided me with so much information and showed me a new career opportunity  I loved working with the instructors they had so much patience with me they didn’t make me feel like I should know the material as a new student with little to no knowledge they took their time and showed me everything I needed to know.

    Great Bootcamp!

    I had a great time at The Tech Academy. I loved being able to go at my own pace, the instructors were very helpful and responsive, the job placement assistance is great. The live projects gave very good experience with working on a real codebase as well.

    Amazing Cyber Security bootcamp experience!

    A bit about me: I came to this program by way of a career change and a non-technical background. I knew that I wanted to transition into cybersecurity for the remainder of my professional life, but I didn't know where to start really, as I didn't possess any deeper understanding of computers and information technology beyond that of an average user.
    What I found in the Tech Academy was the perfect blend of independent study and accountability. Being in my late 30...

    You will definitely get out what you put into this program: if you put in the work, you will be rewarded!

    I attended the online Software Developer Boot Camp at The Tech Academy, and I cannot speak highly enough about my experience. I appreciated the flexibility of their self-paced program; it allowed me to move through easier concepts faster and take more time on subjects that were more challenging for me. Once you complete your first Front-End course, you will start applying those skills right away by building your online Developer Portfolio, and you’ll keep adding to this and enhancing it ...

    UX/UI Design

    I started the UX/UI Design course with very basic computer knowledge. After just a few short months I am now able to design and create webpages! The curriculum was easy to follow. The instructors were so friendly and helpful. I'm now searching for a tech job and trying to get out of healthcare. This is the best thing I've done for myself and my family!
