"I learned everything here and got hired!"
Prior to Vertex, I had very little knowledge programs. I only knew a little bit of Maya. Now I’m comfortable using Maya, Zbrush, Substance Designer, Painter, and etc.
I also very much enjoy the Vertex Community where there are full of people exchanging infos and feedbacks. Vertex school is one of those schools where you can get lots of help if you are willing to look for it. I guarantee you that if you are willing to push yourself, you will be able to get a lot out of this bootcamp.
I know lots of online sites that will teach you skills, but don’t worry about you after you finish the course, however, when I was enrolled in Vertex, I felt that I was a part of the school community. My mentors were super supportive and helped me a lot even after I graduated.
With the knowledge and portfolio that I’ve made at Vertex, I was able to put my foot into the game industry. Super grateful that I joined Vertex .
