Computer engineering had always been an interest of mine, but I did not have a solid base on which to build solid and marketable skills. I had watched lectures online and picked up some things, but I learned of a problem. When you are learning something brand new, there will be gaps in your knowledge base and you will not know where those gaps exist. That’s where Claim Academy came in. They did a great job covering nearly all relevant topics for full-stack development - from the basics of class and methods to including implementing newer technologies like Angular into the curriculum. I do wish some topics were covered more in depth (ex: debugging), but in 12 weeks, it is amazing what they cover.
The thing that sticks out from the experience there is the people. They are fully i...Read more
I really enjoyed my time at Claim Academy. I actually left my job to make this commitment and prayed I wouldn’t regret. I don’t I’m so glad I made this commitment and followed through till the end. I would refer anyone that would want to Jumpstart there career in Software Development. Instructors are awesome it’s like having an extended family . THANKS CLAIM ACADEMY. The staff is amazing
You have to be dedicated! You need to be able to put your life on hold for 12 weeks! But at the end of 12 weeks, you will be trained and ready to begin a new career. You will gain knowledge in class, but you will need to do some self-directed learning on your own as well. If you are not truly dedicated, this experience may prove to be too difficult for you. If you don't ask for help (and you'll need some), this may prove too much for you. Coding is difficult! If it were easy, everyone would do it, and it would pay $10/hr. You have to focus! You have to study! You will also receive soft skills training and placement assistance. They're here to help you. You won't be babied, so don't expect that. I cannot say enough about the passion and dedication of the instructors. They want, more than...Read more
Claim Academy provided a great opportunity for me to begin my career in software development. Twelve weeks ago I only knew some basic HTML, and now I am a full stack C#/.NET developer. During my enrollment I was able to hone both technical and soft skills that are essential for the job market. I recommend Claim Academy to anyone willing to dedicate twelve weeks to learning both front and back-end development. If you are interested in beginning a career as a software developer, do yourself a favor and check them out. I'm glad I did.
Great program. No complaints about my java instructors or support staff. Only problems I had were taken care of before I finished my course. Only things I saw that could have been better would be a clearer communications of expectations. A few times I came up shorter than I would have liked due to not knowing for sure what was expected of me. But, overall a great and worthwhile experience. Special mention to Sahara Datta for her help when I got behind on things. Lamar Myles for late night email hints to keep my project work going. And Travis Mattis for keeping me reminded that I needed to occasionally stop coding to put in an application or two.
Claim Academy was an excellent learning experience. We all had different backgrounds and experience levels, and the curriculum and the instructors adapted to handle that variety so that we all learned from the course. The instructors were both knowledgeable and approachable.
It's a bit early to fully evaluate the job assistance, but that has been excellent so far. We have been provided interview coaching and excellent resume instruction and review. Our career coach does not specialize in technology jobs, but the other instructors are happy to fill in any gaps.
The few things that detracted from the experience are either issues that already have resolutions for future courses (for example, new financial aid opportunities will reduce the likelihood that courses will be delayed), or ...Read more
Learning at Claim Academy is a challenge but fulfilling experience. I am a graduate of the coding boot camp; everything is intensive yet the support is there. Their instructors are approachable and will do their best to help as long as there is an effort from the opposite party. There are a countless number of times, I asked them for assistance but I was never turned away. Instead, they will ensure I understood what went wrong. Their training facility is well designed and maintained; I enjoyed my time studying there. I paid out of pocket but some people got a local St Louis company sponsorship, which I believed needed to pay back.
Overall, I am grateful for Claims because I found a high paying job in the St Louis Area almost instantly after completing the program. Thank you all so m...
The instructors at Claim Academy were the best part about the course. They were extremely helpful and kind to me and all of the other students. I knew next to nothing before the class, but they did not seem frustrated or angry with me at any point. My only complaint would be the overall organization. They had moved to a new location, and this definitely showed during my class, especially for the first few weeks. As we progressed we all got more comfortable and organized. A few classes also were cancelled, one when the instructor was sick and another when he had to leave to repair something on his house. Can't really hold this against either of them though, sometimes stuff happens.
Definitely a good experience, and I am very happy with my new job.
Learn more for less? Is complete bull crap! Claim Academy is a complete waste of $$$. My SO had went through the .net program and I have to say it was a complete waste of 8k! He saved and quit his job to take this course to learn and gain more experience but sad part is that he knew most of the stuff already.
On top of that, I'm really upset that everyone in the .net program got a scholarship except for him! How is that even possible? He's a very bright person and is way smarter than most of the people in his class! He had to explain problems to his classmates multiple times because they didn't understand! When someone interviews you for a scholarship what do you think of? Apparently it was an actual interview with a company. Their scholarships program is that you are guaranteed a j...Read more
It has been over a half year and contracts still haven't been fulfilled. If you're not paying your instructors, do you think they are going to care about their quality of instruction? Claim is a clever idea but so poorly executed that I pity anyone who gets wrapped up in it.
I was a member of the first .NET cohort, so it's possible things are different now than they were when I was there. Overall, this was a good experience for me. I was not happy with my current job and really wanted a change, and this opportunity came up, so I went for it, since software development was something I'd always been interested in.
We had three teachers that were excellent and one who just wasn't particularly well-suited to teaching, but he ended up parting ways after not real long anyway. The curriculum was a little scattered, but I also allow that this is kind of an impossible field to cram into three months. I think they really did their best and it's certainly no fault of the teachers.
The process for placing graduates is I believe different now than it was when I wa...Read more
