  • Lighthouse Labs apply online

    Apply online

    A short 5-10 minute application for you to introduce yourself, including your education and coding experience, plus your super power. You know, the important details that will help us get to know you. New cohorts fill up on a rolling basis so make sure to submit your application as soon as possible!

  • coding bootcamp assessments

    Logic Assessment

    After you complete your application you will be sent over instructions to take a logic assessment. This test is designed to assess your critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and learning aptitude (it doesn't require any prior experience). It is multiple-choice and only takes 15 minutes to complete.

  • coding bootcamp interview


    After you pass the logic assessment you will be invited to book an interview with us. The interview is a 30 minute conversation in which we assess your passion for tech, past experiences with learning and teamwork, and your overall readiness for our program.

  • coding bootcamp Prep Modules

    Prep Modules

    The first step to becoming a developer is laying your foundation with our Prep Modules. The 70 hours you'll spend on completing prep will introduce the basic technologies you'll use throughout bootcamp, including: HTML, CSS, Ruby, JavaScript, and git. You are required to complete the Prep Modules before your first day of bootcamp.

Key Dates.

Once you are accepted into a cohort, your place in the program will only be reserved once we have received your deposit. Deposits can be paid by credit card, and we are able to accept wire transfers for the remainder of your tuition. Your tuition is due 2 weeks before your start date.

  • When to Apply

    6-10 weeks before your intended start date.

    For bootcamp, we recommend you apply 6-10 weeks before your desired start date as our cohorts start on a rolling basis. The more time you have for prep and stretch goals, the better!

  • Bootcamp

    Length: 12 weeks

    The mandatory 70-80hr prep modules must be completed at least one week before the start of Bootcamp.

  • Demo Day

There are many ways a student can finance their tuition, including bank loans or a line of credit. If you have a good credit rating, they may be able to offer you a lower interest rate.

Some students are successful in applying for grants or bursaries to attend our programs and we recommend you research what is available in your area! We are designated through PTIB in British Columbia and registered as a PCC in Alberta which qualifies some provincial funding pots.
