Has anyone done or heard (good/bad/same) the 11 week certification program, and how it compares to the 8 month programs?

I have not heard of their program, but I am going to do some research on it today. Personally, I just can't believe ANYONE can teach ANYONE what they need to know about coding in 11 weeks in order for the coder to be able to work as a coder. You can learn enough to pass someone's TEST but that does NOT prepare you to work as a coder. I have hired many certified coders throughout the years who were not able to code. They had only learned how to pass the exam.

I am reminded of the old saying "If something seems too good to be true, it probably is"
