1) The content that is taught be BrainStation in their web development program is not even adequate knowledge to lend a job in their affiliate company Konrad.

2) There is hardly any support after you complete the program. If you bring this up and keep bugging them you will surely be on their "black list".

3) There is hardly any Database and Authorization covered in the course. Which is one of the keys.

4) Waste of Time, and Money!! Double loss!!

5) Last but not least, there is 0 Job Assistance! ZERO!!

I will not Recommend them to anyone.

I had a great experience taking this 10-week Search Engine Marketing course remotely at BrainStation. The class size was small (~10 students) and we had both a lead professor and an assistant professor, so I always felt supported.

I’m already a Sr. Marketer (that focuses primarily on Direct Marketing), so I took SEM to broaden my knowledge within the overall field, and to be able to better understand and communicate with the Performance Digital teams I frequently cross-functionally collaborate with.

This course was challenging, but in the best way possible. Each week we completed about 2.5 hours of lecture time and ~1 hour of time with a partner (in a Zoom breakout room) to practice what we learned in class. My only feedback would be that I felt the 1:1 partner activity time was a bit too much — I would have preferred more interactive activities with the full group to interact more with the rest of the class.

This course requires focus, dedication, and discipline to truly take in the knowledge and work through the in-class assignments that lead up to the final assignment. I’d recommend this course to Marketers, bloggers, and business owners looking to increase conversions and stay on top of their competition.

Full disclosure: I was given complimentary access to this course in exchange for my honest opinions.

FAQ

  • Do you offer financing for tuition?

    Yes we do! We offer different payment options based on the course to make our education as accessible as possible.
