FAQ

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A BOOTCAMP AND A FLEX PROGRAM?

Both bootcamps and flex programs cover the same material. Students of both will become familiar with the fundamentals concepts and techniques of their chosen program. The key difference between these delivery formats is the structure. A Flex program is a less concentrated program over a longer stretch of time, whereas a Bootcamp is more concentrated. These two programs both exist to accommodate a wider variety of student lifestyles, priorities, and preferred learning pace, so that students can strike a balance that works for them without compromising on quality.

SHOULD I TAKE A BOOTCAMP OR A FLEX PROGRAM?

Both these programs exist so as to accommodate students’ lifestyles and priorities. If you’re currently working in a position that you want to continue while training, we recommend you enroll in a less concentrated Flex program. This is also a great option if you’re a parent or caregiver with substantial childcare duties. If you want to start a new career as soon as possible and don’t want to wait for six months, Bootcamp is the better option for you. This is also a good fit if you have an open schedule or can make other commitments work with a more intense program.

IS A FLEX PROGRAM EASIER THAN A BOOTCAMP?

These programs are fundamentally equivalent in terms of content. For some, the more intensive schedule of a Bootcamp may be more challenging, but for others, the longer stretch of a Flex program might be more challenging.

ARE FLEX STUDENTS ELIGIBLE FOR CAREER SERVICES?

Yes, Flex students also benefit from guidance with the Career Services dream team as part of their program. This is a service offered for life, meaning that alumni can keep coming back for relevant career advice long after graduating.
