To help you along the intensive boot camp journey, participants have a Success Manager on site to provide support with pre-launch preparation, trainer management, on-boarding, and classroom coordination. In addition, you have access to a free tutoring network and communication channels to reach out to trainers and tutors when needed.
We believe in communication, and in our boot camps, we use Slack to keep in constant contact. Slack is a great tool that enables participants to communicate with their Participant Success Manager, their trainer staff, and each other.
Feedback helps us ensure we are providing the best experience for our participants, that is why we have established several feedback loops in our programs. Throughout the experience, the success team administers surveys to record participant backgrounds, demographics, goals, and program feedback, in addition to weekly sentiment assessments that enable us to make real-time changes as needed.
Our programs utilises pioneering technologies to make sure that participants are receiving a valuable instructional experience. Classes are recorded and audited for data analysis and quality control, and participants have access to class recordings. This has allowed us to oversee the curriculum in real time, providing constructive feedback to our trainer team and a first-rate level of support.
