Common mistakes when choosing
an educational institution:

Pursuit of Low Prices

Desire to save money will impact the quality of training. Low prices mean low salaries for trainers, what in it's turn means that experienced trainers will avoid such educational institution. Trusting your education to dubious organiaztions is never a wise choice.

Choosing a Training Program, Not Matching Your Goals

Before you start training, it is important to define the goal of your study. Professional advice can be helpful in this case. Incorrect statement of the program often leads to a wrong choice of a training form. When you realize your mistake your time and money will have been lost already.

Short-term Course Training

If your goal is to programming from scratch, short courses lasting several months will not give you a sufficient knowledge base. In order to grasp the essence of programming algorithms to work out right solutions and design software projects, regardless of a final implementation language, it is important to restructure thinking and acquire practical skills. The experience of our trainers suggests that the optimal period for quality education is 2.5 years and more. In this case, you can be sure of the result.

Pursuit of University Degree.

Those times days when university degree was a decisive factor for hiring have passed. Now employers themselves assess the knowledge and skills of applicants. This is especially true for the sphere of information technologies, where knowledge of programming languages and skills in working with new technologies are crucial.

Self-study

Self-education is a great thing, if you possess a will of and have a lot of time for searching through literature, video tutorials and audio books. But it cannot replace live chatting with experienced trainer. It is much more convenient and faster to learn, if you have an opportunity to consult with a specialist who can show you a right path, point at your mistakes and inaccuracies.

Learning with a Tutor

Tutoring is an alternative to self-education. In this case, tutor controls learning process, and it can go faster. Still, the tutoring loses to group lessons with a trainer who has industry experience and trains according to a curriculum tailored for the industry requirements. A good tutor can certainly master one or maybe even several technologies, but a team of professional is needed to train according to a well-rounded curriculum. Moreover, lessons with tutor do not give you any international certificates or diploma.
Desire for Quick and Easy Results
Whichever option you choose – the result depends on you. The task of the educational institution is to lead a student to his/her goal by most effective and shortest path, making the learning effective. Our 15-year experience in training has proven that it is not possible to become a programmer from scratch in 2-3 months. Those who promise it lie to their customers. Our training program has received high appraisal from professionals all around the world and it is designed for 2.5 years.
