We want you to succeed in the right coding bootcamp for you.
- The Beginner Coding Bootcamps require a 15-minute non-technical interview, as well as a non-technical assessment including the Criteria Cognitive Aptitude Test (CCAT) and a typing test. Those applying to our Beginner Part-Time program will also need to complete what’s called a Learning Readiness Test.
- The Intermediate Coding Bootcamp requires the non-technical assessment, plus a coding challenge and the Technical Admissions Assessment (TAA).
Aptitude Test & Typing Test
The Criteria Cognitive Aptitude Test (CCAT) is a 15-min proven measure of an individual’s ability to solve problems, digest and apply information, learn new skills, and think critically. The 1-min typing test is designed to make sure you have the typing capabilities to complete our coursework.
Learning Readiness Test (LRT)
The final step in the admissions process for our Beginner Part-Time Coding Bootcamp is the LRT. The test is a set of instructional videos, articles, and quizzes that cover computer literacy, math, and problem-solving skills. Learn more about the LRT.
