Mission: We believe that real learning happens when you fulfill two things; knowing how and understanding why. Both are essential to beginning and supporting a successful career. With this in mind, our goal is to prepare every student to enter the workforce within weeks (knowing how) and to help develop the skills necessary for a promising future (understanding why).
Core Values: Each of our following 5 core values helps us fulfill our mission and put us FIRST in the trades.
Fun - Learning should always be fun.
Interactive - Hands-on labs give you the ability to practice what you learned.
Rapid-paced - You don't have to wait years to start a career. Start earning now!
Smaller, longer classes - The right class size and durations mean more time for meaningful discussion and questions.
Theory - Learn principles and concepts needed to apply to real world situations, understand the code, and become an expert.
