How do the Skillcrush Blueprints work?
The way the Skillcrush Blueprints work is:
All the lessons (videos, readings, interactive exercises, projects, etc) are online and available to you 24/7 so you can do them whenever and wherever you like.
You can also be a part of the special online student community for the course where you can meet your instructors and fellow students, ask questions, share your work, and learn together. And there are optional live events like small-group video group office hours with instructors 2-3 times a week.
And, whichever Blueprint you choose, you can get a certificate of completion to show potential employers or clients. And you'll build your online portfolio to really show off your skills!
To do an individual Blueprint in three months, most people either study an hour or so a day or about 6-8 hours a week. Or you're very welcome to do the lessons at your own pace -- as quickly or slowly as you like. You'll have lifetime access to the classes, the online student community, and your instructors' support once you've made the one-time payment or the three monthly payments.
Or, to do a full track (designer or developer) of the Break Into Tech Blueprint in nine months, most people either study an hour or so a day or about 6-8 hours a week. And, with the same schedule most people can complete a full track plus the WordPress or Ruby on Rails specialization in about twelve months. But you're also very welcome to do the Break Into Tech Blueprint at your own pace -- as quickly or slowly as you like. You'll also have lifetime access to the classes, the online student community, and your instructors' support once you've made the one-time payment or the twelve monthly payments.
As you finish all the lessons and the milestone project for each phase of the Break Into Tech Blueprint, you'll have a video meeting with your career counselor. They'll review your milestone project to make sure you're set with the skills from the phase, and, during your career counseling session, they'll help you plan the next steps you need to take for getting started with your tech career and also help you choose the best next steps in your Break Into Tech Blueprint.
The Break Into Tech Blueprint is designed to first give you the foundation you'll need for *any* area of tech by teaching you the fundamentals of both design and development. Then, in the second phase of the program, you'll be able to focus on design or development -- or in both if you'd like to become a "digital unicorn" -- and also specialize in WordPress development or Ruby on Rails development (or both) if you like. And finally, in the third phase, you'll learn what it takes to actually start working in tech -- whether that's as a freelancer or working for a company, remote or in-person.
