Frequently Asked Questions


Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have scholarships or unemployment discounts? 

We do offer a discount for veterans, students, and the unemployed. Shoot us an email at hello@skillcrush.com if this applies to you, and our customer service team will take care of you!

How do I know if I have what it takes to code or have a job in tech?  

We believe anyone can learn tech skills. That’s why we take a fun, non-jargony approach to our courses. With support from your mentors and fellow students, you’ll be cheered on every step of the way.

In other words: YOU CAN DO IT! We promise :) 

Am I too old to learn tech skills?

It’s never too late to learn, and age can actually be quite an advantage in tech – you can offer diverse experiences and viewpoints from previous jobs and a kind of "stability" only gained from years in the working world. Finding clients for freelancing can be a challenge at any age, but persistence and a great portfolio (which you'll start building in our courses) goes a long way!

Fundamentally, ageism is discrimination, just like sexism and racism, and we won't stand for it. We won't stand for it among tech companies and employers, and we also don't stand for you holding yourself back because of ideas you have about what you can and can't do at your age.

And although we can't control the discriminatory practices of every employer, but we can empower you with life-changing tech skills and show you how to use them such that you won't need an employer ever again.

Will I really be "job ready" after completing this program?

Yes, absolutely! That's why we call 'em "Job Ready Fast Tracks" ;)

Listen, the WHOLE idea of the program is to get you job ready. That said, getting to "job ready" takes commitment, hard work, and going outside of your comfort zone. And as much as we may want to do those things for you, we can't! But if you're ready to hold up your end of the bargain, to work hard, to take risks, and to GO FOR IT, then we promise to do everything in our power to make sure that you start making money with your skills ASAP.

What if I don’t have enough time or need to pause?

Life happens, whether it's family obligations, a cross-country move, an increased workload at your job – we get it! Rest assured you can complete all of our courses at your own pace with lifetime access. That means you can come back anytime and access your courses for as long as you need, without ever having to worry about falling behind. 

How long will it take to complete the whole course package?

Most students take 6–12 months to complete the Break Into Tech course package, working 1-2 hours a day. If you have more time to devote you can work faster, but we recommend estimating at least 6 months to allow plenty of time for skill retention, freelance work, and milestone projects.

Totally New to Coding? So Were They!

LESLEY HOGG | FULLSTACK DEVELOPER

When people I meet for the first time ask me "What do you do?" I now beam with pride and exclaim, "I'm a Software Engineer!!" Some people's reactions seem to me like I just told them I'm a professional wizard, which I kind of feel like I am. ;) I'm using Ruby/Ruby on Rails and GitHub everyday, and sometimes HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. I was using my Skillcrush skills from DAY ONE, and my code was deployed to production on day two, which boggles my mind.

REBECCA GODIN | FULLSTACK DEVELOPER

The best part about my new career as a Full Stack Developer is that I set my own schedule while making good money. Actually, I make better money now with less work than I have in my previous jobs. It really is the best way for me to have the work/life balance that I need.

MELISSA GERBEREUX | CREATIVE DEVELOPER

Skillcrush completely changed my life and gave me the skills & confidence to change careers in my 30s. Only 10 months after starting my first lesson, I was able to land a flexible job at a media agency and am continuously growing my freelance web design/dev business. Can't say enough amazing things about the entire Skillcrush team and learning process! Keep being awesome and empowering women to break into tech!

"Skillcrush Has Been An AMAZING Experience!"

I really like Skillcrush because it is learning for all! People like me who are visual learners, as well as, hands-on.... or if you prefer to read to follow along...it's all there! The content is broken down into bite-sized pieces so it isnt overwhelming, and each section has some kind of exercise, which helps seer it into my brain haha. It's all simple, easy to understand content. There's a forum that all members have access too that's helped me find ways to solve bugs in my code, in the real-world way that we'll have to use when we have our own business/job.

Everyone has been super supportive; answering emails, forum questions, and homework guidance.

It's been an awesome experience so far, and I'm excited to continue on my web dev journey with Skillcrush!

The call today went really well and the creative director is adding me as a contractor for work as it comes up. Right before the call I was contacted by someone else wanting to build a web presence with a new website. I have a call with her tomorrow. This is so exciting. All the hard work is paying off, and I'm so happy to be able to help people with my new skills.

"Old dogs can learn new tricks!"

At 57 I was definitely intimidated by the idea of coding but can honestly say that I have loved every minute and am hooked! The classes are fun and easy to understand - so much so that I look forward to the time I set aside to work on them and truly resent when I have to stop. I truly didn't anticipate a career change at my age but now I'm not so sure. Thank you!
