I attended the Data Science & Big Data Diploma from WCD. It helped me learn new concepts in Data Science, Big Data and even an introduction to Deep Learning. More importantly, I got a chance to work with real world projects with interesting clients and present my insights to stakeholders. The curriculum is quite comprehensive and well designed. The group assignments, industry guest lectures and discussions were also fun to be a part of. Even though after few weeks of the course, we had to move the classes online due to the pandemic, they ensured that the learners still have an ongoing engagement and have all the necessary tools and people in place to help with the learning experience.
Everyone in their team is extremely helpful, including the lecturers and teaching assistants. They try to guide you as much as possible and give enough personal attention. Only thing that is required of the student is to put in their best effort in the process of learning - be curious (it's a data ''science'' program), follow their instructions, work on your assignments, projects and ask questions.

I just accepted my offer a week ago, and now I’m back to share my experience with you. I come from a Non-STEM academic background with limited exposure to coding and no hands-on experience in data science before I enrolled in this program.
My transition to the data analytics field was a success, and soon I will be working for one of the largest retailers in Canada and using the knowledge and skills I gained from this program to power its media and digital marketing businesses.
My Experience Highlight
The curriculum is intense yet very practical by design. For someone like me that don’t have any coding experience in the past, it is a bit challenging in the beginning. You need to spend extra time on the course materials, and then you would gradually adapt and catch the rhythm.
Aside from the content, the entire staff demonstrates very high levels of passion and professionalism. They are all very approachable, respectful and very well-educated themselves. They took a step further and learn each student’s personality and learning style and what makes them tick.
In my opinion, this program comes with the best career service/job assistance in the market. One thing that I want to emphasize is that not only it has the best variety of services such as resume makeover, standard & technical interview preparation, job hunting tips but also the length of these services available to the students.
Most of these services are continuous and made available to the students after they complete the program. I felt strong and confident going through interviews with the support and help from WeCloudData’s staff and community members.
This is a well-designed, industry-proven and customer-centric program that will help you succeed if you are willing to give it a shot and put in a 100% effort.
Do you provide a certificate after completion of the course?
Yes we do! You will be given a WeCloudData Certificate of Achievement upon completion of our course.
I'm completely new to the field with no programming background, am I still able to enrol?
We strongly encourage meeting with our Program Manager for an assessment to determine which course is best for you. You can get in touch with us by requesting a course package on CourseCompare.ca.
Are your courses eligible for OSAP?
Sorry, our professional training courses are not eligible for OSAP.
Do you provide refunds?
Sorry, we have a strict no refund policy.
Can I pay in instalments?
Sorry, we cannot accept installments or a deposit. We can only accept a payment of the full amount before the course begins.
Do you provide computers?
We do provide laptops to our full-time students to use within the classrooms, however, we encourage you to bring in your own laptop so that you can learn on a machine that you are comfortable with and can take home to continue working on.
Do you provide career support after graduation?
We provide all of our students with post-course mentoring by reviewing your resume, helping you develop your interview skills, sharing current job market trends, and providing you with the advice given to us from hiring managers within the field.
