When I was deciding which online bootcamp to sign up for one of the major things I was looking for was something that let me interact with people more knowledgeable than me on a regular basis but also let me go at my own pace.
Before signing up with Skillcrush I quadruple checked to make sure I was understanding the terms correctly. Initially I was confused because emails with assignments are sent every weekday but the courses are advertised as lifetime access. After looking closer I learned that you can always go in and access the material, but what you lose by going off track is the ability to stay with the your group for things like office hours and google group postings.
I was bummed about this because I am working full time and also want the freedom to be be able to explore other topics using resources like YouTube, books, Udemy, etc. I knew the chances of me making it through 9 months without departing from the schedule was pretty slim. Thankfully Skillcrush also had this part covered. I learned that Skillcrush allows you to transfer to a different class up to three times, so you have the opportunity to reset your pace and move to another group. Very cool! This final piece of information is what made me sign up.
Today I took advantage of my first transfer. The process to request was pretty painless. Just following a few simple steps outlined here: https://skillcrush.com/transfer-policy/. I AM curious though about whether I get more than three transfers since I purchased the bootcamp + an extra course. The Bootcamp contains three blueprints and it looks like folks who just buy one blueprint or one course get three transfers, so I am wondering if the policy is actually three transfers per class and not three transfers per student? If anyone knows about that let me know!
