Course doesn’t deliver, and they know it. Exercises in class are minimal, and disorganized. Material is presented by ‘bullet point’, with aimless banter being mistaken as context. They work very hard to recruit students as young and green as possible. A $100 video course online would have delivered more content and been more interactive. There are decent schools out there. This isn’t one of them.

RED delivered! I enrolled at RED Academy after I finished a communications degree at UBC. I wanted a quick access point to the tech and startup community in Canada, and that's exactly what I got. The program exposed me to all of the most important skills and tools used by digital marketers today and helped me choose what to specialize in (PPC campaigns and digital strategy). The experience definitely opened up new job opportunities for me. I now work in a digital role at leading Canadian agency. A++ and thank you!
