Just like in a case, you need to clarify what is your objective here?
We also need context - how much education/work experience do you already have?
Here are my initial thoughts:
- Upon googling, I couldn't find much on them - I don't know their ranking, and this concerns me
- Their website is old and pretty glitchy / lacking detail - I also don't trust this
- In general, if you feel there is a gap in your resume and you have the time + money, then academies are a great way to make yourself competitive
In summary, if:
Your objective = get hired because you currently can't, AND
Your context = you have money + time THEN
A short term academy/program to upskill is a good idea BUT
The SMI program looks pretty horrible in my opinion (poorly thought ourt poorly communicated, doesn't appear well connected)
Note: If another coach has heard of this program and recommends it, please ignore my last comment :)
Note 2: If you're looking for better programs, let me know...I can provide some alternatives!
