"Ready for Data Analysis Work"
From the moment that I begin my journey last August to working towards attaining my certification I was excited. It is not an easy decision to learn a new skill or pursue a different line of education. It is easy to know that after the hard work that... Read More

"Great Data Science Program!"
The Data Science program here was and is fantastic! With what I learned I was able to secure a position within a couple of months. This is a vastly growing field and you will learn all the current industry languages, methodologies, and statistical practices.... Read More

Full Stack Web Development Program
"I have feelings for Woz-U."
It was okay. I think there are better options. The thing is, with coding, you'll be learning the same content no matter where you go, more or less. Not everything is a "get what you pay for" experience, at all. Not even close. Woz-u does explain to you... Read More
That being said, if you decide to sign up for Woz-U, you won't ultimately be wasting your money. I have not done any other certificate course so I can't compare. The fact that you can learn other languages they offer is a plus, and is something you will in fact need to do during your career. I don't think they offer Python for web development though. The fact that I couldn't sign up for the Data Science courses with my Web Dev membership was disappointing. They only teach you the basics, but that's really all you need before venturing out on your own. I do wish they gave you resources to excel, though. I wanted to get into more complex CSS and stuff. They didn't have job support when I signed up, but it looks like they do now, so it looks like the only resource you'll need besides Woz-U is LeetCode. Although it's good to use many more resources than these.
The Steve Wozniak endorsement is cheesy as hell, as he has no actual involvement in the company. NAMING a company after someone who's simply ENDORSING you is incredibly weird, and turns me off. If I could turn back time I'd just do the option I listed above, but I really do like the idea of Woz-U and IT CERTAINLY HELPED ME ENTER THE FIELD AND FIND SOMETHING THAT I THOROUGHLY ENJOY, possibly because of the inclusion of projects.

"A people-centric approach to a Cyber Security Development Program. Where what you learn is applied in a real world environment."
Woz U has a people-centric approach, every individual i came into contact with was readily available to see that I was getting the most out of the program. Before Woz U I spent my years self-teaching myself security skills, challenging myself to learn... Read More

"Finally, a real learning experience!"
I have spoken for years to college recruiters who were trying to sell me their programs. Nearly all of them offered nothing of interest. If I could teach a class without opening the text book, I had no interest in paying to take the class. What's worse,... Read More

"I have learned more at WOZ-U than anywhere else."
I would say the pros are all of the help offered by instructors, mentors, and other students. The lesson plans were very thought out and informative. The access to content and lectures was more than enough. I think the cons were the content being a little... Read More
