Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve done away with the traditional application process, and instead, we’ve opted to admit applicants based on a mutual fit selection process. Acceptance to the program is awarded following a thorough assessment of how we can meet your needs through our unique model during the career strategy session.

The first step in the acceptance process is to BOOK A 10-MIN INTRO CALL. After this session, we will know where you are with your knowledge and how to make your roadmap to success!

It’s a 45-minute one-on-one Zoom call with an Enrollment Advisor to identify where you are and help you create a roadmap that guarantees success. We will discuss tuition cost, finance options, current incentives, program details, and program eligibility during the session.

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. We take you from 0 to job-ready, ensuring that all of the prerequisites you could need–from IT infrastructure, networking fundamentals to the core training – are included in the program. Besides the education, we extend our program to include internship opportunities to bolster your experience. This program is for you if your end goal is to become a job-ready, industry-certified professional.

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. From IT infrastructure and networking to an internship, our programs cater intentionally to non-degree holding persons seeking to pivot their career path.

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.

Scheduling for our cohort-based programs is tailored to appeal to working professionals. As such, you can expect evening sessions, although the frequency will vary from program to program. Admission is awarded on a rolling basis.

Hybrid e-learning 

Our method combines the essential elements of a self-directed model (online exercises and pre-recorded video instructions) with “traditional” classroom features (weekly live sessions). This combination aims to create an environment conducive to high engagement for the trainee’s benefit.

Lock-step teaching

While self-paced programs let you choose when and what to study, our lock-step approach requires that you follow our curriculum in a group setting. This approach helps us ensure that you have a peer group you can call on throughout the program and beyond.

Holistic programming

We believe that the interconnected nature of the IT field requires programming that encompasses both the building blocks and the core learning objectives. Pulling from multiple IT tenets, principles, and disciplines, our training model prepares you to become a holistic professional with a complete understanding of your field and capable of performing in real-life situations.

Internship enrollment & personalized career coaching

The accompaniment you receive extends beyond certification as our programs are complemented by individualized career coaching and feature elective enrollment in a meaningful internship program.

The YellowTail 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. Far from jacks of all trade, our staff of instructors and TAs intentionally focus on the Linux OS, bringing back real-time and relevant industry knowledge to your classroom experience. With a seven-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 a career strategy session with our Enrollment Advisor to discuss, among other things:

  • Tuition cost
  • Finance options
  • Current incentives
  • Program details
  • Program eligibility
Yes. We offer a variety of financing options. An Enrollment Advisor will go over all financing options available to you during your career counseling session.

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.
