We offer the following specialized bootcamps, which help you transition from beginner to job ready:
To enrol with us, you don’t need to have a degree or prior technical background - all you need is discipline, persistence, and a willingness to work hard and learn to code :)
Our students don't need access to the Internet everyday. Our course delivery is designed so that you can download the course material and work on your tasks offline. Once you are connected to the internet, all the work in your folder automatically gets synchronised with your mentor, who will be notified immediately and will provide feedback right away.
Yes, you will be issued a certificate of completion once you complete your bootcamp. The certificate also lists all our content partners and supporting organisations, including Google and Facebook.
We recommend devoting an average of 8 hours per week to complete a bootcamp within 3 to 6 months. However, our courses are designed to be flexible to your learning needs and goals. If you find yourself running out of time, you can extend your course time by purchasing additional months of mentor support and access to the training material. This means you can take as long as you need to complete the course and gain the certificate, as well as the confidence to become a developer.
