Becoming a full-stack web developer, the most in-demand specialization in web development in the GTA right now, shouldn’t require you to take months off work. Bootcamps and other full-stack web development programs demand a financial and time commitment that just isn’t an option for most people. We believe learning full-stack web development should be accessible to anyone.

In any case where a student feels that this policy has been violated, they are urged to notify the instructor of the course/program as soon as possible.
