Fullstack Academy Cybersecurity Bootcamp Testimonials
Straight from the source: Our grads give positive reviews for the Fullstack Academy Cyber Bootcamp.
The support I received from my fellow classmates, mentors, and instructors was amazing. They all played a crucial role in my journey. They reached out to provide encouragement and reassurance about my progress, highlighting the strides I had made and reaffirming my abilities.
My bootcamp experience was great because there were so many other people with different levels of tech knowledge who were just starting down this path. There were other people, just like me, who never wrote a script but were excited when they completed a task. The pace of learning was easy to orient to and challenging enough to keep you going.
Information Security Analyst @ the Federal Reserve Bank
Bootcamp was fun, and the pace is manageable. I had no experience going into it, and I learned so much. There are instructors online after class to help you with topics and homework so you can understand it more fully. They were always there with answers and kind words to encourage me.
Information System Security Engineer @ Industrial Control Systems (ICS) and SCADA systems
My bootcamp experience was very engaging, hands-on, and well put together. It had a nice flow and balance of fundamentals, red teaming, blue team, purple team, and everything in between. Aside from the amazing staff, I’ve created lifelong friendships with some members of my cohort, and we still keep in touch even now.
