What People are Saying
“I just finished my data science course at BrainStation, and found it immensely valuable for my career. The Instructors were enthusiastic and helped to make the course exciting.”
Sam, Toronto, Course Report
“I really enjoyed the foundation of Python this course provided me. Each week we focused on a different topic of Python coding, and with three hours per class, we were really able to develop our skills for the specific topics. I feel as though I can use my newfound knowledge in my current and any future work.”
Holly, Vancouver, Course Report
“As someone with little knowledge of Data Science going in, I was apprehensive. However, after the first few classes, I felt as though I had a good base of knowledge on big data sets and how to use Python to approach them. The latter weeks then allowed me to focus on specific skills that I wanted to develop.”
Holly, Vancouver, Course Report
“My experience with the class was great. The Instructor was amazing — he had a lot of knowledge and was clearly passionate about the course. We were learning in a way that we could implement at work the next day. I also had the opportunity to get to know some amazing people from different industries and backgrounds, and I really enjoyed that. Final note: I was able to get my dream job at Shopify after completing this program.”
