FAQ:

What if I don’t have any experience coding? Can I still get into the program? Obviously, some experience with technical skills will help, but even if you’re new to web development, you can be part of our program. The application process requires pre-work, which will help us determine the applicants we want – hard work, critical thinking, and problem-solving will get you far.

I created the account. Am I accepted? NO. Please watch the ON-DEMAND ORIENTATION. This will clarify many of your questions.

Will I be compensated during this apprenticeship? Fair is fair, right? We pay our apprentices above minimum wage while they’re learning and working on our clients’ projects. There are opportunities for raises according to the wage progression schedule listed above and how dedicated you are to. It’s a full-time job requiring your full-time attention.

What percentage of students qualify for financial aid and scholarships? Unlike most web development boot camps, we pay you to be part of our apprenticeship program so we don’t offer financial aid. We’re looking for people with dedication and passion – not the biggest check. You may want to connect with your local Career OneStop to assist in funding the Apprenticeship STEM Instructor Training Class IF you lack STEM skills.

How long is the selection process? It varies on your skillset.

What happens to people when they finish the apprenticeship? That depends on the person, their commitment, and the employer partner. After completion of an apprenticeship program, the apprentice earns a nationally recognized credential from the Department of Labor, Licensing & Regulation that is portable and stackable. This means that other employers in the TECH industry will recognize its value and that the apprentice can build on its foundation to further his or her knowledge and education. SW Design School is a Non-Joint Committee Apprenticeship program–meaning, some apprentices get hired directly by our partnering employers and work for them, and some apprentices become part of the SW Design School Sponsors team. We are opening locations in all 50 States.
