FAQs

What's the difference between full-time and part-time programs?

The part-time program is a gentle, but thorough introduction to HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. It’s designed for people who have very little experience with computers and the internet.

The full-time program is intensive, and is designed to give students the requisite experience for finding work as a professional front-end web developer when they complete the program.

What coding languages, frameworks, etc. do I learn about during the course?

You will learn HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, and PHP. You will also learn about jQuery (which is a library of code that makes writing JavaScript much easier), and a JavaScript framework called AngularJS. You will also learn how to build out a website using WordPress as a content management system.

What kinds of jobs can I get after this course?

This program is primarily geared toward front-end web development, so you will be employable in any junior-level job with a focus on JavaScript a framework such as Angular, or any job focused on building websites out on a CMS like WordPress. Past graduates from the program have gone on to work as junior front-end developers for digital agencies, large tech companies, and up-and-coming start-ups.

Applying For A Visa

You do not need a study permit if you plan to take a course or program in Canada that lasts six months or less. You must complete the course or program within the period authorized for your stay in Canada.

Most travelers need a valid entry document such as an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) or a visa to visit Canada. This will depend on your citizenship or your situation.

All visa-exempt foreign nationals except for U.S. citizens need an eTA to enter Canada as tourists. The eTA authorizes to visit Canada for up to six months or until the date prescribed by a border services officer upon arrival to Canada.

Applying for an eTA is a simple, inexpensive (CAD$7) process that takes just a few minutes to complete online. In addition to a fast process, the eTA is electronically linked to a traveler’s passport and is valid for five years or until the passport expires. 

Travelers with passports from visa-required countries and territories need a visitor visa (temporary resident visa) to enter Canada.

A visa is an official document that is inserted inside a passport giving permission for you to come to Canada.
