Agile Skills & Competencies

The Full Stack Developer program is a full-time 6-month course, with a focus on developing the technical skills needed to become a Full Stack Developer, in addition to helping learners to adopt a growth mindset to future-proof themselves in an ever-changing digital economy. A Full Stack developer has the skills to do back-end development (coding, databases, programming) and front-end development skills (design, layouts, UX/UI).

Led by an on-site team lead, learners will engage with project-based experiences delivered both online and in the classroom. Participants will learn to state and analyze complex problems, uncover assumptions, collaborate with peers and distinguish between what is known and unknown to drive effective systems development.

We collaborate with industry leaders like Arcurve, Benevity, ATB Financial, Telus, and Clio to ensure learners are acquiring in-demand transferable skills, while also building their resume and expanding their network.
