Instructors with professional teaching experience

Your Actualize lead instructor is highly qualified with both professional developer AND teaching experience. This means they can teach the highly technical material in an engaging and empathetic manner, which results in you maximizing your learning potential. Many of our students tell us that their Actualize Lead Instructor was the best teacher they've ever had in their life.

With our small cohort sizes, your instructor will get to know you personally. Unlike other programs, the live training is not prerecorded, which means your instructor can watch your progress, help out when needed, and meet with you individually to customize your learning plan to best suit your strengths.

  • The instructors (who are FANTASTIC) have backgrounds in both software development and education. Attending Actualize is without question one of the best decisions I have ever made and my only regret is not signing up earlier.

  • The instructors at Actualize are educators first, programmers second which makes a big difference in the learning process. One of the things I love about Actualize is the immediate feeling you get that the educators here are looking out for you, the student, and will guide you until you reach the goal set for yourself.

  • Actualize sets the standard in pedagogy with its instructors, all of whom have backgrounds in both education and computer science. The instructor made learning engaging and fun, and his teaching style provided clarity and insight on difficult concepts and topics.

A dedicated job support approach

Our unique Job Hacking curriculum is not an afterthought. It starts from the very beginning of the bootcamp, and is embedded throughout the entire program. This is very important, since engaging in a career transition takes time and practice, and this way you'll have a running start by the time you graduate.

You'll work with an experienced Career Advisor throughout the bootcamp and beyond. This is a unique opportunity to work with a true expert who knows what it takes to launch a new career in tech. In order to stay engaged in the job hunt after graduation, you'll continue to have sessions with your Career Advisor to help keep you accountable to a structured job search plan. We're committed to your success, and want to see you reach your goal!

Our Program

Prework

5 weeks of at-home exercises

To help you get ramped up for the main course, you’ll be watching our videos that introduce you to fundamentals of computer programming. You’ll also submit exercises to a Prework Instructor, who will leave constructive feedback on your work, and answer questions via video conferencing and email.

Live Training

12 weeks of in-class instruction

The Live Training is the main part of the online coding bootcamp, led by your Lead Instructor. Each concept is taught live and then immediately followed by exercises that allow you to truly grasp what you’ve just learned.
