Great class and instructors with an excellent support system from co:rise and team. Pace is suited to professionals and gives you flexibility to learn and build real world examples.

Sara GasparSenior BI Analyst, Lyst

This course has been an amazing learning experience - no only because of the content of the course but also the way in which is taught! It has the perfect mix of online - individual work - community time and resources. The teaching materials are very high quality and the whole team are super attentive and responsive. It's a great way to learn hands-on experience with dbt, get exposed to real life problems, industry experts and also networking! I highly recommend it!

TJ PolakSenior Manager of Business Intelligence, Embark Veterinary

This was by far the best training course I have attended. The way it was structured and the support available from the instructor and TAs really made the learning valuable and lasting. I am looking forward to other courses in the near future!

Emmanuel TreichAnalytics Manager Egencia

There was a great balance in this course between learning Dbt concepts, putting them in practice, and understanding the vision of people using the tool today. I also appreciated the fact that TAs were available to help us at almost at any point of time during a week. The peer reviews were also a great thing because it allowed me to understand the logic used by other persons.

Chloe BrownSenior Data Analyst

I absolutely loved this class. Not only was the content fantastic, but the course format and support was unlike any online class I've taken. The lectures, work sessions, coding parties, online communities, and deadlines all helped me learn more material faster than I expected! The co:rise team is amazing at creating a community of practice where you can ask any question and get a thorough response immediately. I'll be recommending this class everywhere I can!

Eva Jauman Data Scientist

I have started 28 courses on udemy and 12 on coursera but have not finished any. Does that sound familiar to you? co:rise has such a refreshing approach to online courses, with all the little details that made a big difference for me to finally complete an online course! We had strong focus on community, via slack all the questions were answered not only by the teacher team but also by classmates. It was a hands-on experience with topics for real applications, taught by practitioners and supplemented with insightful fireside chats and guest lecturers. The mutual code reviews kept me engaged and it's so interesting to see different solutions to the same task.

Stephanie Mott Data Warehouse Developer, UCSC

Best online course I have ever taken! The course content, while challenging, was pretty much right where it needed to be. And the lectures, special guests, and project sessions, gave insights into how companies are using dbt now as well as lessons learned. Amazing support through online sessions and slack channels from industry experts. Loved the 'never a dumb question' attitude! I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to get into dbt!

Stef ClausProduct Analyst @ Dooly

Just finished my last project for co:rise's dbt Labs course on snapshots, exposures, and artifacts. I can't wait to apply all the awesome dbt best practices I learned to super charge our data foundations at Dooly. Friends in the data space: I would highly recommend checking out co:rise! The class nails a lot of what I need out of a course, namely: Skills I can use right now at work, taught by fellow professionals who are also in the trenches getting it done; Great networking opportunities in the analytics engineering space; Some (soft! reasonable!) deadlines to help me prioritize coursework.

Michael CaruanaVice President, Data & Analytics, Allied World

The co:rise class on analytics engineering does a great job balancing applicable learning experiences with realistic expectations that you are probably working full-time and have a life. It's hard to find a class that respects both and this one hits the nail on the head.

Emmanuel Osei BoatengData Analytics Engineer, Wejo

Having the opportunity to learn from other peers in the industry and the fabulous instructors was priceless. Their willingness to go the extra mile and immerse themselves with the cohort upon their work and life commitments was unmatched!

Rolandas GlotnisSenior Software Engineer, Lyst

I've been through a lot of online courses but finishing co:rise 's Analytics Engineering with dbt was probably the best experience yet. Fab community, discussions on best practices, being able to apply knowledge at work from day 1, great pacing and support throughout, it just worked right.
