Thank you to the entire BDG team for your competent and professional work. I would definitely recommend BDG, because if you participate in one of the courses, you can become a member of the BDG family, where you will always be supported. During the lessons we received not only theoretical information, but also systematic practical knowledge, due to which the courses became more interesting and effective. Trust me, if you want to get “cool knowledge”, meet happy and positive people, then this is your place. I would like to thank the BDG family for the friends and lecturers I have gained through lessons, who have become advisors on professional achievements.

It’s a pity that one of the colorful periods of our lives is over. A period when we gained practical knowledge, a wonderful environment and friends. I want to express special thanks to Vahagn, due to whose efforts we will become successful professionals in life. And there are no words about Sona. Always friendly, smiling and ready to help. Who knows where our roads will cross, where we will meet again, smile and greet each other warmly. We are leaving each other with the expectations of meetings, and may success accompany us on our future road. Dear Vahagn Karamyan, many thanks.
Recently finished the Agile Project Management course organized by BDG. I would like to express my deep gratitude to BDG staff for organizing it effectively and, most importantly, for choosing such a unique trainer for us, Siranush Kostanyan. I admire her knowledge, professionalism and compassion. A personality whose students fully master the material, due to lovingly sharing his vast knowledge. Dear Siranush, I am proud that there are experts like you in our country and I am sure that their number will increase with your own help and support.
It was my great pleasure to work with BDG. I took 2 courses: “UX/UI for Beginners” and “Motion Design”.
I not only gained much knowledge and practical skills but also made great connections. The learning process here is very much motivating which is due to the amazing team.

I studied UX|UI Design for the second time and really liked it. I wish it lasted more, though.
I chose the course organized by BDG from the torrent of offers to learn SMM, and from the very first day I was sure I made the right decision. Trainer Arman Chilingaryan’s lessons were full of theory, practice and humor, for which I am very grateful. I am very glad that I trusted the first stage of discovering new professional field in BDG. There is no need to talk about the professionalism of the staff and the positive atmosphere.
