No. We firmly believe that self-paced programs are synonymous with procrastination. In a landscape characterized by fast-paced hands-off courses, we choose to put all hands on deck.

Our programs feature weekly interactions with live instructors, a robust Learning Management System, dedicated attention, and high engagement to keep you pumped every step of the way!

Our programs are only available virtually. Although virtual, our belief in direct engagement underpins our class environment. We commit to fostering an active engagement and require that trainees show up to class prepared to connect and share their experiences. You are never alone in your efforts.

The good news is that our programs were designed with non-IT professionals in mind – you don’t need a technical background. Our approach considers the building blocks required at every stage. 

Absolutely not. In fact, the majority of our trainees have no college degree OR a background in IT. We’ve designed a comprehensive program that encourages familiarity with the basics. This approach allows tenured IT professionals, non-degree holding professionals, and recent high school graduates to train at their level.

Our programming encompasses the prerequisite courses we would otherwise recommend. In other words, once a career track is selected, and you enroll in your program of choice, you will not need to enroll in another course to become job-ready, regardless of your course type or skill level.

The Yellow Tail Tech difference starts with the structure of the program. Whereas a course focuses on the subject matter, we approach our programming holistically, with your career goals in mind. Our value add begins with the care we take to ensure you have a proper understanding of infrastructure. It continues through the tailored, hands-on career coaching we provide and is enhanced by elective internship programs.

Backed by a tuition reimbursement guarantee, our program features live lectures and hands-on teaching. We employ these methods to encourage engagement and interactions among trainees, instructors, and TA when most courses are currently self-paced

There is a reason our programming ends with FOR JOBS. From start to finish, our goal is to ensure that you are job-ready.

We are industry-certified career professionals with 30 years of combined subject matter expertise and experience. With an eight-year track record, our success rate speaks for itself. And, just in case you are still skeptical, testimonials from past trainees attest to the hands-on investment from instructors that underpins our training programs.

Your total investment is determined by a few key factors unique to your needs. Please schedule an orientation with our Enrollment Team to discuss, among other things:

  • Tuition cost
  • Finance options
  • Current incentives
  • Program details
  • Program eligibility

Yes. We do have a financing partner that can help you with your payment. Our enrollment team will go over this with you during your Enrollment Orientation.

Years of experience have taught us that our most successful trainees are those with skin in the game. 

We’ve learned that once the investment is made, trainees are more likely to remain engaged and motivated throughout the duration of the program.

We are only interested in investing our time and resources into individuals who are equally invested in their career progression.
