What Our Students Say

"Exceptional Experience..."

"I am new to the field and started working in the IT networking and security role after completing my bootcamp. The bootcamp gave me the tools I needed to break into the field. The bootcamp process was simple and straight forward regarding the course and certifications. The company assisted me with resume writing and updating my Linkedin profile. I had 4 interviews right after I completed my bootcamp and had 2 offers immediately after completion. The position is remote and offers a lot of flexibility as well. I appreciate all the assistance from the team to further my career”

My mentor was very hands on and provided extra time to ensure I had complete understanding of the topic. After I finished the coursework, I worked with my team mates on side projects to update my hands on experience and to build my resume. I had an absolute blast going through the coursework and would recommend it to anyone looking to start a fresh path in the IT career path.
