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 courses do not offer 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. At STEP IT Academy we believe that the optimal period for a quality programming education is 2.5 years, and confident in the success of each of out graduates.


Self-education is a great thing, if you possess a will of iron and a have lot of time for searching through literature, video tutorials and audio books. But it cannot replace live chatting with an experienced instructor and networking with other students. It is much more convenient and faster to learn, if you have an opportunity to consult with a specialist who can show you the right path.

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 17 years’ experience in education has proven that it is not possible to become a programmer from scratch in 2-3 months. 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.
