What's the difference between Individual courses and bootcamp?

 

Individual courses are our offerings that allow students the ability to get introduced to our program without the long term commitment. Courses are self paced via our state of the art online platform. Students receive all of the learning materials provided in the boot camps without the live instruction.

 

Do you offer financial Aid?

 

Pivot offers flexible repayment options that allow students to pay a deposit and make payments on the remainder of the tuition. We also partner with Studio Bank to offer students the ability to finance their tuition  and a very good rate.

 

Pivot Tech Job Placement:

 

Pivot Technology School's primary goal is to get our students employed in a technology career. We have created a multi-phased process in order to remove any potential roadblocks. The success of our school is directly tied to our ability to assist our students in finding and securing roles in the tech industry. 

 

  1. Pivot has created partnerships with corporations and small to midsize companies in the region to develop a talent pipeline from Pivot. 

    • Our partners have agreed to hold mock interviews throughout the cohorts.

    • Provide mentors directly from their corporations to aid in student development.

    • Hold an open house the final 2 weeks of the program to review projects and interview students for open roles.

  2. Pivot also differs from other programs through our Student Entrepreneurship program which allows students to begin working as a freelancer while enrolled. 

    • Students will develop and create profiles and begin building clientele during class.

    • Students will learn the ins and outs of sourcing contract work and professional development.

  3. We have also created a subsidiary called Pivot Staffing Solutions, LLC. to source contract opportunities. 

    • Through PSS we will be able to hire our students directly for contract and staffing roles.

    • Students will have the ability to gain industry knowledge and experience with PSS.

    • Pivot Tech School students will have the first opportunity to fill roles before any roles are available to outside resources.

 

How long are the accelerated bootcamp programs?

 

Our programs are currently 20 weeks long (approx 5 months).

 

What happens if I fall behind?


Pivot allows students who are behind in the program the ability to do a Pivot Restart and re enter in the upcoming cohort at no additional cost.  Students are allowed one restart at no additional cost.  

 

 

What is the time commitment required to successfully complete the program?
