    Huh?

    Now why would I want to take a course from them when I can do the same from a high quality accredited US University for less? These entities are the kind of places my employer won't reimburse me for.

    I'd wager that, if they had $11K to spend, they'd buy a new car.

    Sure, 6 months spending a few hours a week watching online videos is all it takes to become those things. Just pay us $11,000 and we'll save you the many years of actual industry experience and hard work that up until now were actually required to reach this level.

    At best the company will have correctly surmised that they can make a packet from the dreams of lazy wannabes - if someone claimed to be up to these jobs on the basis of having a certificate from this course, they would be instantly rejected by me.

    They have got to be better than bootcamps

    They may be underestimating the competition at that price level though.

    Digital certificate is not worth the paper its written on

    Interviewed a lot of developers and, invariably, the worst ones have the most qualifications (MSCD etc)
