Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Coding Bootcamp?
A Coding Bootcamp is a new approach to your IT education—an intense, short-term, often immersive experience created to give aspiring IT professionals all the skills they need to launch a career in their chosen specialty. Coding bootcamps are characterized by great speed and high-impact learning. Consequently, the bootcamps teach only those skills that will be most necessary in your field of study’s real-world situations.
Why our programs cost less despite providing double the value than any other coding bootcamps in America?
There is a huge gap between job openings in Web Development and the talent available to take up those jobs. We receive grant from the Government for the great work we do for the community and we pass it on to our hard working students. We believe this is the right-thing to do & also well aligns with our philosophy and mission statement!
Why should I Join Deep Dive Coding Bootcamp?
Our bootcamps provide intense, accelerated instruction complete with hands-on projects that let students design their own web apps, software programs, and digital tools. Furthermore, we help their graduates to find jobs in the relevant field of study, which is an extremely valuable bonus. Just FYI, The average salary for a Coding Bootcamp graduate is $65,328.
I do not have any coding background. Will this bootcamp help me?
Our Bootcamp is geared towards beginners with basic or no prior knowledge of Web Development. We warmly welcome students with no prior experience. Prior to admission, we’d like to have a non-technical conversation with you to understand and identify your career path and goals, and then we can move forward.
We even go one step ahead and offer FREE Basic Web Development Course so that our Students can hit the ground running! We have a proven track record with the Students who did not have any Web Development background. Book your free consultation today to find out more about it.
Can I take this course at my own pace or is there a fixed schedule? How flexible is it??
Flexibility is the most important feature of our coding bootcamp. You can surely go at your own pace, however, to get the most out of this bootcamp, we strongly recommend you to keep 15-20 hours per week for the studies and practice. As this is entirely 1:1 mentorship, we will let you pause the course for up to 3 weeks for any of your personal reasons. You don’t have to take those 3 weeks together; you can have 3 separate pauses for 1 week each.
How many students are there per class? Do you have a maximum? how busy the instructors are bound to be once the course starts, in order to answer any questions that may come up along the way.
So that’s what makes our bootcamp different from others. You will be matched with your own personal mentor and all your sessions will be 1:1 sessions. Every one of our students learns differently and our mentors make sure that they adapt to their learning style. You will meet with your mentor at least twice a week. Over the week, you can ask any questions over Slack (a chat platform) any time during the week and your mentor/s will get back to you in a short time!
Which program should I choose?
We realize that there is no one size that can fit all! We work with you to understand your career goals, strengths & weaknesses to create a custom Bootcamp experience which leads you towards success.
Do I get Personal Mentorship?
Yes, we give 60+ personal mentorship sessions which is more than any other Coding Bootcamp in the USA. our personal coaching sessions are truly geared towards helping students with all their needs.
What if I fall behind in the class?
We support students who are falling behind or struggling with extra help and 1:1 mentorship to bring them back up to the speed. We want you to succeed and will work very hard to support you throughout the program. We don’t let our students lose hope so easily and we don’t stop working until we reach there!
Will I get a good mentor who can understand me well?
When you join Deep Dive, you are assigned a personal mentor with tremendous experience in the field and who will focus on understanding your needs. However, If you give us a valid and justified reason we will work with you to find a suitable mentor for you. Our mentors are friendly and most of them stay engaged with their students even after graduation.
Are the mentors working professionals with other jobs, or are they completely dedicated to working with students?
There’s a mix in there. Majority of our Mentors hold top level technical positions at Fortune 500 companies and some of them are doing mentorship on a full time basis. However, all our Mentors have solid experience working for corporations and most of our students keep in touch with their mentor even after their graduation!
Do you offer career support?
