Our instructor... was clear, detail oriented, and made the learning environment safe and collaborative. We got a lot of real world examples from him, and all the little details he shared made this entire course special, and more than simply reading a textbook.

Overall, I'm a big advocate for Brainstation's courses - they've proved to be extremely valuable in my career.

It's always hard to start something new, especially when it involves learning skills that you know will force you to think differently about your day-to-day work. I'm glad I got over that fear and signed up for two classes... both were fantastic!
