  • What does a career in I.T. mean as a BA / QA / SM?
    Here's a small exercise to help you understand the work involved in IT projects: Think of your favorite app on your phone or a software program you use at work. Have you ever wondered how it was created, updated, or maintained? The reality is that there are large teams of professionals who work behind the scenes for weeks or months to make that app or software program a reality. These teams include not only Developers, but also roles such as Business Analysts, Quality Assurance Analysts, and Scrum Masters, all of whom are trained in our IT Bootcamp program.
  • What are the types of projects in IT?
    Projects in the technology industry are collaborative efforts that involve a team of professionals working together to design, develop, and implement software applications, tools, and systems. While most people think of developers when they think of IT projects, there are many other roles that are critical to the success of these projects, almost equal in number to the number of developers.
  • How long is the program and the time commitment?
    Our Classroom Phase of our program is a 12-weeks of core classes. There is a syllabus week prior to starting, a break for midterm, a break for final, and a final exam / job conference. During the initial 12-weeks you will attend one day of class per week from 6pm-9pm, and complete 20 hours of group or individual work outside of class. The entire Classroom Phase happens over the course of 16 weeks. After graduation, Networking Phase begins. This is a lower time commitment compared to class. You will attend weekly meetings (required at 3 a month) that are only 30-60min long each to job hunt with fellow ITBC Alumni! You will also be discussing and working towards passing your PSM 1 exam during these meetings. You may decide to continue to apply for Jobs and work on Networking and introductions outside of this time during the week. In parallel, and once you are ready, you will then decide when to start Project Phase. The ongoing project phase consists of four 8-week projects that will take approximately 5-10 hours per week in the evenings to complete. You will have to self manage that you complete all 4 within 1 year from graduation. Once you are placed in IT, you must simply finish out the project you were on and then no longer have to complete projects. We believe that this structure provides a comprehensive learning experience that prepares our students for success in the technology industry.

  • How much can I make in IT compared to my loan?
    At The I.T. Bootcamp, we're all about family and want to help you succeed. We are with you for your entire career, from training, to placement, to further training, and beyond. Typically, our students increase their first-year salary by $10,000-$20,000, so you can expect to make your tuition back in the first 12-18 months in I.T. We are here to help our students succeed not just in the short term, but in the long term as well. Even if students choose not to work closely with us in the first few years of their career, they can still expect to see a significant increase in their earnings over their lifetime, up to half a million dollars more than what they would have made before our program. However, for those who choose to continue working with us and take advantage of our ongoing services, the potential earnings increase is even greater, up to 2 million dollars more over their lifetime. Our program is not like traditional college where you are trained and then left on your own. We stay with our students, work with them, and deliver value for their entire life. That's our promise to you. All we charge in exchange for potentially increasing your lifetime earning by 2 million dollars is $12,500, and we only charge you full tuition if it works and you get a job in I.T.. Many have told us we could be charging a lot more, or doing a lot less, but that is not our mission or our culture. We are here for you, and delivering value to you over your entire career is our passion.
  • How does tuition work?
    Our tuition payment process is easy. You'll pay a $599 enrollment fee to start and then make payments of $200 a month starting one month into the program. With our walk-away policy, you'll only have to pay back tuition if you get a job in I.T. If at any point before the second repayment date, which is 30 days after your placement, you decide that I.T. isn't for you, you can walk away from the loan. However, you'll still be responsible for the enrollment fee, the $200 monthly payments made, and any collection costs if the loan becomes delinquent. Once the second repayment date has passed, you won't be able to walk away from the loan, as you'll already be placed in I.T. Once you have a job in I.T. then we set a payback based on the salary increase, typically around $699 a month.
