Frequently Asked Questions

Our courses are designed to be flexible and self-paced. The average time to completion for the Intermediate Data Science course is three months. However, individual paces vary. If you don’t love the course after the first week, we offer a full refund.

You’ll pay a $499 monthly subscription for each month you’re enrolled in the course. The fee covers:

1. All curriculum materials and resources used in the course.
2. Weekly 1-1 video calls with your personal mentor.
3. Access to an exclusive community with expert mentors and fellow students.
4. Weekly Office Hours hosted by industry professionals.
5. All taxes and fees.

The total estimated workload is 120+ hours. However, you get to learn at your own pace and decide how many months it’ll take to complete those hours.

We work with industry experts to pick the best learning resources on data science and structure them into a systematic curriculum. Note that the individual resources need not be authored in-house, but are curated from the best in the field. We provide the glue that stitches everything together and fills gaps. We believe this is our unique strength because we stand on the shoulders of giants, instead of being restricted to in-house content. Think of us as a college professor who creates a curriculum with the most formidable book chapters, research papers, projects instead of teaching from only her own textbook.

You’ll interact 1-on-1 with your personal mentor every week in a 30-minute video call. Your mentor will help with technical and career guidance. They’ll also keep you accountable and help ensure that you actually complete the course. Additionally, you’ll have access to weekly Office Hours and to an exclusive community of mentors and fellow learners. You can ask questions and receive project feedback through the mentor calls, Office Hours or the community.

We will provide certificates of completion to all the students who complete the workshop and successfully complete the final project.

All our courses take place entirely online. All you need is an Internet connection.

You should have a strong background in probability and statistics and should also be very comfortable programming in at least one language. If you do not meet these requirements, please check out our Introduction to Data Science course instead.

Absolutely! Many of our students have been sponsored by their employers. Most companies are very happy to invest in their employees' learning and development. Check with your employer if they can support your subscription fee from the annual learning budget given to each employee.

Once you complete the course, you'll have lifetime access to your Springboard account, including the online community and office hours. We'll even provide you with an additional six months of access to external resources upon request. Whenever our course development team updates the curriculum, you'll see it too. Lifelong learning guaranteed.
