The Curriculum That Builds Tech Achievers

Proprietary tech curriculum meets you where you are.

Coding experience isn’t required. Your commitment plus our curriculum and process can get you there.

Proven learning cycle.

Study: Students work through a concept, compete a tutorial, and take a self-paced quiz.

Class: Instructors expand on lessons, clear roadblocks.

Apply: Hands-on exercises and group projects solidify knowledge.

Personal support.

Our seasoned and industry-knowledgeable instructors are tracking each student’s progress daily, adapting classroom teaching to needs. Instructors and tutors are always available for additional help.

Multiple learning modes.

Because every student learns differently, our curriculum includes tutorials, videos, exercises, extra reading, individual and group projects.

Step-by-Step Skill Building. A Personal Coach. Now You’re Ready for Your Next Career.

Working with your own career coach, our Pathway Program™ curriculum gives you the tools and skills you need and introduces you to our employer network. Our approach is what got us to be industry leaders in coding bootcamp job placement. Explore the three stages of our Pathway Program™ for more information. 

Before you build a personal brand, our team will help you build a solid foundation through our self-discovery process. Your introduction to a career search begins with the CliftonStrengths assessment to identify your unique strengths. Before diving in further, we'll also teach a few simple practices you can introduce into your daily routine to manage stress and imposter syndrome. The final phase of self-discovery includes working closely with a career coach to develop your elevator pitch—a concise summary about yourself, qualifications and goals.

Maybe Just a Few More Questions

    Specific technologies you will learn include:
    • Java
    • HTML
    • CSS
    • JavaScript
    • SQL
    You can view our school catalog for more information.
  • Who teaches at Tech Elevator?

    Our instructors are industry professionals with an average of 20 years working as software developers. They’re passionate about helping students start their careers in tech, and are invested in their success. Stop by an Open House to meet an instructor – either remotely or at a campus.

    Learn more about our instructors in this video.

  • What’s a typical day like in the bootcamp?

    Most mornings consist of lectures and learning, and lots of fresh coffee. After we break for lunch, you get to test your skills with hands-on practice. This could consist of group work, headphones-on solo work, tutoring sessions or pairing programming assignments.

    The best way to learn is to do, so you’ll literally be coding from day one.

  • How can I prepare before bootcamp begins?

    Once you’ve been accepted into Tech Elevator, we’ll be reaching out to you for best ways to prepare with exercises recommended by our instructors. In the meantime, Stanford’s Computer Science 101 is a great place to start. It’s free and can be accessed here.

  • What if I can’t keep up with curriculum?

    In addition to your instructor in the classroom, each cohort has dedicated instructors who support extra work outside of the classroom. That means you can schedule tutoring sessions as much as you need to, ensuring you’re understanding concepts and implementing coding.

    Remember, your cohort lead and instructors have a pretty good pulse on how you’re keeping up and will work with you if you feel like you’re getting behind or struggling in any way.

  • I need to work mostly after hours due to my work schedule, is there anyone available to help me with questions?

    • We offer support M-F 8am – Midnight and weekend support from 8am – 9pm (Eastern time).
    • This is done through the same ticketing system that Remote students will use throughout their cohorts.
  • What happens if I do not complete prework?

    It is highly recommended that you complete prework, as it is a proven indicator of success later in the program. If you are not able to complete your prework, be sure to connect with us to develop an action plan for your personal success!

  • What happens if I need to push my cohort start date?

    Can you tell us why you’re looking to push your enrollment to a later start date? We can help you to do that, but we’ll need to connect you with an Admissions representative to go over details.

  • What can I expect to cover in the prework?

    • The Prework is broken down into four sections:
      • Algorithms:  You’ll work on problem-solving abilities by documenting everyday processes
      • Programming: You’ll learn how to write program code using JavaScript.
      • Software development tools: You’ll work with tools that software developers use regularly.
      • Preparing for the bootcamp: You’ll discover which resources and strategies can help you be successful in the bootcamp before it starts.
  • How many hours will it take to complete the prework?

    We ask that Students set aside 35-45 hours to complete this work in advance of their cohort start date. Be sure to get started as soon as possible!

  • Do I need any previous experience to get through the prework?

    No previous coding experience is required.  Our prework is designed to step you through new concepts and ideas so that when you start the bootcamp, you are prepared.

  • What happens if I finish prework and would like more things to work on?

    First off, congratulations!  Our prework is extensive and you have done a great job completing it.  If you feel you would like to dig a little deeper into a particular area covered in the prework, you can reach out to our Prework Academic Fellow, who can give you other work to help you build your confidence even more.

  • What is the best way to get into contact with someone if I have questions?

    If you have questions about the prework itself, you can reach out to our Academic Fellow staff through our prework Slack channel.  If you post a question in the Slack channel, you will either receive an answer from them, or one of your fellow prework teammates might help out.  It’s a great place to get to know some of your fellow classmates and start building the Tech Elevator community.
