When does this course take place?
Our Winter session of FEWD starts Tuesday, January 31, 2017. This course will meet every Tuesday and Thursday from 6pm-9pm for 10 weeks at our campus in Federal Hill. Join us for a Meet + Greet on Thursday, January 19 at 5:30pm.
Can I really learn these front end skills in 10 weeks?
That's completely up to you and how hard you are willing to work. The courses have been designed to aggressively teach you these skills in 10 weeks, but the real knowledge transfer from our experts to you comes from your willingness to follow along. We find students that dedicate 7+ hours per week on these skills are the most successful.
Do I need to bring a laptop?
Yes, you'll need to bring your own laptop. If you're taking the Intro to Full Stack Web Development Course, you'll need an Apple laptop. You are eligible for an Education Discount and can get a brand new MacBook Air for around $950.
How do I enroll in a course?
The first step to enrollment is for you to 'Request More Info' about a particular course. Then, we will have one of our admissions directors schedule a short interview with you to learn your needs and goals. (Do not be afraid! We are looking for beginners.) If we are a good fit for each other then we will check our course availability and, if we have space, offer you enrollment. If you accept, we can set up payment and secure your seat.
How much does the Front-end Web Development course cost?
The tuition for the Front-end Web Development course is $3,000. A deposit of $1,500 is required to confirm your spot (please read our refund policy to learn more about this). If you pay for the course upfront, you will receive a 10% discount. We are willing to accommodate unique payment plans as long as the complete balance is paid before your last class.
What happens at the end of the course?
After the course is complete, we will give every student access to our Betamore Works program, a personalized career concierge service. If you took a course to sharpen your skills and have no interest in pursuing a new career, that's okay too.
What is your refund policy?
If you need to withdraw from one of our Academy courses prior to the start of the course, we will provide you with a full refund or credit good for future use towards any Betamore product or service. If you are one week or less into the course and you are unhappy with it for any reason, you can still receive a full refund or credit. Refunds beyond that point are prorated based on the date of withdrawal (you must submit this in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org) and the amount you have already paid; during the second week of the course, you can receive a refund of up to 75% of the full course tuition, and after two weeks, no refunds will be given.
What prior programming or tech experience do I need to enroll in the Front-End course?
You do not need any specific programming or tech experience other than knowing how to use a computer for email and Internet access. Yes, we're for real.
