Common mistakes when choosing
an educational institution:

Pursuit of Low Prices

Desire to save money will impact the quality of training. Low prices mean unexperienced trainers, as they would work for lower salaries. Low prices also mean bigger groups and worse technical equipment. Trusting you education to a dubious organization is never a smart decision.

Choosing a Training Program, Not Matching Your Goals

Before you start a training, it is important to define the goal of your studies. Professional advice is helpful in this case. Incorrect statement of a 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 learn programming from scratch, short term few months courses will not give you a sufficient knowledge base. In order to understand the essence of programming algorithms, to be able to develop right solutions and design successful software projects, it is important to restructure thinking and acquire strong 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 days when university degree was a decisive factor for hiring have passed. Now employers themselves assess knowledge and skills of applicants. This is especially true in IT industry, where practical knowledge of programming languages and experience with new technologies are crucial.


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, a tutor controls learning process and it can advance faster. However, the tutoring loses a lot 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 professionals is needed to train according to a well-rounded curriculum. Moreover, lessons with a 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 an educational institution is to lead a student to his/her goal by the most effective and shortest path of learning. Our 15 years experience in education 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 programs have received appraisal from professionals all around the world and it is designed for 2.5 years. This is the optimal period to obtain high quality basic education and confidence necessary to start a successful career.
