10 Day Preview Program | Start on the Road to Professional Development

Be Job Ready in as Little as 20 Weeks...
Without Ever Stepping Foot in a Classroom!

The Framework program was created to prepare members for entry level jobs in web or mobile development. We offer a self-paced program with access to live instructors so that you can always get the answers and encouragement you need to progress.

Follow our program road map and be job ready in as little as 20 weeks...

Step 1: Certify

As a Certified Web Development Professional you'll be qualified to design, maintain and update front end content on web sites and mobile sites.

The initial portion of our road map will take you through the foundations of creating web sites and other digital content. During this portion of the program, you'll earn four separate professional certifications: HTML5 Specialist, CSS3 Specialist, Javascript Specialist, and, once you've earned the first three, Certified Web Development Professional.

As you proceed through the Certified Web Development Professional program you'll have the guidance and mentorship of our live instructor staff. They are always standing by to answer your questions, and to advise and make recommendations.

Step 2: Specialize

Specialization is key to a secure future in the software development industry...

There are three paths available once you complete Certified Professional Web Developer.

Certified Web Development Professional Advanced will continue the path you started, by providing advanced skills like React and Node.js that are in demand by employers today. Much of today's work is focused on the front end, and this path is as well.

Certified Mobile Development Professional is for people who want to make mobile applications. In this path, you'll thoroughly go through the fundamentals of making both hybrid (HTML5) and Android applications (Java).

Certified Server-Side Development Professional is intended for people who want to be working on the back end of applications and environments. The focus is on PHP as well as Node.js and databases.

Step 3: Career-ify

Once you’ve completed the first two program phases, you will have learned professional development skills, earned up to eight recognized certifications, and be ready to enter industry as a professional developer.

The Career-ify phase is the program Capstone that is designed to help you make the transition from student developer to employed professional. You’re already going to stand out due to having completed the program and earned certifications. The Capstone simply insures that employers recognize everything that you have learned and are capable of doing. Coding interviews are about what you know and what you can do.

Don’t Just Take Courses: Become a Certified Professional

86% of HR managers use IT certifications as screening or hiring criteria during recruitment.

There are over 5 million tech positions in the US. How will you stand out?

Certifications make it more likely that you will get hired or obtain contract and freelance positions and projects. All things being equal, certified individuals will almost always be hired before non-certified individuals with similar skillsets.

During the Framework program you'll earn up to eight individual certifications backed by
Why just take a course, when you can learn, and obtain certification as proof of your new skill set?
