"The most efficiency school in the bootcamp market"
I'm currently in the final phase of a full-stack bootcamp program. At the beginning of the course, I had some initial concerns about the school. Unlike many other bootcamps, they didn't offer job guarantees or showcase students' testimonies of landing... Read More jobs at big tech companies. Additionally, their tuition was the most affordable in the market, which piqued my curiosity about what this school had to offer. I did some research, like anyone would before starting a bootcamp program. No False Advertising: I observed that some bootcamps exaggerated their success stories, claiming their students were hired by top tech giants like AXXXXX, UXXX, or GXXXX. To verify these claims, I researched the students' profiles on LinkedIn and found that while they were real people, they weren't actually hired for technical positions. Unlike those schools, except for Nobledesktop, this one didn't encourage students to begin their careers as janitors or delivery personnel at big tech companies. Such jobs have nothing to do with coding skills but can make a school's success rate look better. Additionally, they offered a 100% money-back guarantee, but it came with stringent conditions. If you missed a single day, even due to a family emergency or personal issue, you'd forfeit your money-back guarantee. This only worked for students who attended every single class. Self-Study is Essential: When considering a bootcamp program, it's important to reflect on its purpose. The reason you chose a bootcamp over a traditional 4-year computer science degree is to save time. A 4-year degree is condensed into a 4-month program, which means you need to be prepared for intense studying. You'll have to dedicate yourself entirely for those 4 months to keep up with students who've spent 4 years in college. Preparing in Advance: The number of class hours is no joke. You can't stay focused on coding for a full 8 hours a day. Before enrolling in a bootcamp, it's wise to assess your readiness for the coding industry. Some students struggle with even basic typing skills. To thrive in the fast-paced classes, you need to be a proficient typist. If you're not prepared to type quickly, you'll fall behind in your coursework. I've seen many students drop out of classes simply because they couldn't keep up with the typing requirements.
"The best School for Motion Graphics & Video Editing"
I took a motion graphics and video editing course at Noble Desktop and I couldn't be happier. Jerron was really a great instructor and we all learned so much. Lessons/ exercises were so well made and the industry tips we got from Jerron are so valuable... Read More because it's a knowledge you can't just google out. Whenever I needed something from the team (and that was pretty often), they would reply promptly and they were at our disposal for the entire duration of the class (and longer). I would highly recommend Noble Desktop to anyone - the courses are worth every penny and I'm pretty sure it's the best you can get for this type of training school in this field.
I completed the Digital Marketing Certificate at Noble Desktop with Nicole McCullum.I had a great experience and learned a lot. Nicole is very organized and knowledgeable. Each topic was well structured. I also attended 5 Online free seminars (SEO, email... Read More marketing, google my business, website fundamentals and excel). I really appreciated the gesture from Noble Desktop to give us this opportunity to keep learning in this period and have a glimpse of classes for free. Also, the teachers had a great energy, a big plus when you are learning online! I highly recommend Noble Desktop.
Last year at the beginning of the year, I had set a goal for myself to learn a new skill. I decided that with my interest in Computers and my creativity, I wanted to learn a useful skill, therefore I said to myself, "why not learn how to code?" I began... Read More researching many coding schools that would provide in-person training. I am comfortable learning online, however, being that this was a totally new area for me, I really wanted a coding school that would be thorough, flexible, and well-taught. Thankfully I came across Noble Desktop. I took four courses with Noble Desktop; Web Development 1 and 2, Intro to Git, and Flexbox/ CSS. I have to say I learned so much. I was very lucky to have excellent instructors, especially David. I felt so prepared with excellent foundation skills, that I decided to go for a Masters in Computer Sciences. I thank Amit and David for really being incredibly helpful throughout my learning experience. Noble Desktop gave me the confidence to pursue a career in Tech, even while working as a teacher full-time.
I've taken quite a few courses at Noble Desktop and found it extremely enlightening and informative. The instructors are great and the class size is perfect. The books provide excellent material to revisit even after you complete the certificate programs.... Read More Noble Desktop provides the computers, both Mac and PC. One great point is you can retake the class for free, even if you've completed the course previously. This allows you to keep your knowledge up to date without spending a lot of money. The overall product is worth the tuition costs.
I've been going to Noble for quite a few years now over my design career. I've taken many coding and design classes and they have all been very helpful. The way the courses are set up allow you to follow along with the teacher and then break off to do... Read More exercises, helping you get a grasp of what was just presented to you. You get workbooks that you can take home in case you need a refresher or for a reminder whenever you need it. The Business courses are a little different, and coming from a design background I prefer the way the design and coding classes are set up. The business courses are more of a lecture, which I find it hard to grasp all of the information present because there isnt as much hands on compared to other courses. This is just the nature of the course though. I've taken probably close to 10 classes with Noble and overall have only had one mediocre experience out of all the classes, and its more to the fault of the actual material and lack of workbook, but some may prefer a lectured class over the latter.
Being a science teacher for 35 years and an amateur self-taught video editor, I couldn't imagine how someone could teach Adobe Premier Pro in a Day. I had low expectations. But Kalika Kharkar Sharma pulled it off. She is not only a pro when it comes to... Read More video editing, she's a great teacher. Her approach is what the Boy Scouts call the "EDGE" method: Explain, Demonstrate, Guide, Enable. From the start, she was prepared on multiple levels. She knew what she wanted to accomplish and how fast she had to move. She spoke quickly but, after explaining and demonstrating the points, she instructed everyone to do what she had done by following explicit written directions in a course booklet. Her guiding hand was readily available for all who needed it. She then moved ahead to the next steps repeating the same approach. The booklet was ours to keep along with the downloadable class files to enable everyone to go home and do it all over again. It was also great to hear that we could come back within six months and take the same course again for free. It should be said that the booklet is extremely well done and a valuable resource. I intend to go back for more.
Amazing class with top of the line teachers. With every class you receive a how-to-guide book with online code, and unlimited re-takes. I learned so much from their classes and they are usually just one day. Absolutely crazy!

"No more anxiety around InDesign"
I was a beginner to InDesign. Even just upon opening the program I would get anxious that I might hit one key and erase any work I had previously done (and taken forever to do!) After Sneha worked her magic I have no more nerves! While I can always improve...
