Data is big business, and what organizations do with it can sometimes determine the success or failure of an enterprise. Collecting data is easy, but how are you using that data to drive your business objectives? From executives to early-stage professionals, learning how to analyze and interpret data is a skill we all need to learn. This part-time course will help you understand the role of data in business and show you how to leverage existing data for better business decision-making.
What You’ll Learn
- Data Fundamentals: You’ll learn the basics of the Analytics process, including how to ask the right questions to tackle business challenges and how to set measurable goals.
- Data Collection: Collecting data sounds simple enough, but without proper planning, it can soon become a very complex and cumbersome task. You’ll learn how to identify target data based on business objectives and how to collect, modify and combine the collected data.
- Data Cleaning: Learn how to create error-free datasets using industry tools and techniques. You’ll understand the principles of cleaning collected data by removing null or invalid values and how to prepare the data for analysis in line with industry best practices.
- Data Analysis – Microsoft Excel: You’ll harness Excel’s power to analyze multiple data sets and extract reliable insights for achieving business objectives.
- Data Visualization – Tableau: Data-derived insights are only valuable if they are easily understood, especially by key decision-makers. You’ll master presenting your insights effectively using compelling visualization techniques and best practices.

This was an intense experience (in a good way). It covered data foundations, wrangling, SQL, Python, Machine Learning, visualization, etc. in a really engaging way. Instructors were experts in their fields but also passionate about teaching. Great culture and vibe that comes down from the top. Career support still has a few wrinkles to work out but they were super helpful in the end and I did get a great job offer in the auto industry working on data, making a much better salary than I earned before.

I graduated in 2019 from the web dev bootcamp. At Lighthouse Labs, you get exceptional career support that actively bridges the gap between candidates and employers. Louisa and Lulwa's commitment to their job is remarkable, and I owe them for helping me land my current job.
Most mentors are excellent, especially Karl, who isn't a mentor but was encouraging and engaging. Additionally, Tim, Mikias, Vasily, Rafal, James, Justin, Michael, Will, and Zola were patient and taught me the fundamentals and complexities of web development beyond the coursework when I had terrible questions.
Coursework is superb and covers essential and advanced topics extensively. The technical interviews were practical, and the focus was primarily on hands-on training instead of reading lengthy documentation.
Students have access to the facility 24/7, allowing them to work on their schedule.
My biggest complaint is that the React lessons were subpar, but I know from current students that this has been overhauled. I did find myself using free online resources, with instructor guidance, to get through this section on my own.
Overall, I highly recommend this bootcamp to anyone seriously considering a career change. While the 93% employment rate is impressive, it's not a guarantee. The bootcamp provides students with ample resources, but it's up to the individual to create their own success. I suggest testing a course online first to determine if the workload is manageable and you like the material before applying.
Which should I take: the Intro course or the Bootcamp?
Ask yourself: ""Do I want to work as a professional developer?"" If the answer is 'yes', then there is no question that the full-time or flex web development bootcamp is the program you need. The goal of our bootcamp is to transform you into a professional full-stack developer. You’ll come to understand coding logic, and learn how to think like a dev by building software from the ground up using industry-relevant technologies. Our program will provide you with mentorship, data-driven curriculum and a top-notch learning environment that will launch you into your first junior developer role. If the answer is 'not sure', taking our part-time course might be the best option.
Who should take part-time intro courses?
What are my payment options?
Once you are accepted into a cohort, your place in the program will only be reserved once we have received your non-refundable deposit. Deposits can be paid by credit card, and we are able to accept cheques, wire transfers, bank drafts, or cash for the remainder of your tuition. Your tuition is due 2 weeks before your start date.
Can I come to Lighthouse Labs as an International student?
Yes, you can come to Lighthouse Labs as an international student! There is no additional tuition cost or restrictions for people applying from outside of Canada. We have had many students come to Canada for our Bootcamp on a visitors visa, however you are entirely responsible for making any legal arrangements for staying in the country. Lighthouse Labs is not able to assist in securing working permits, and your eligibility to work in Canada will entirely depend on you securing the proper documents. If you are able to obtain a working permit, you'll be able to take full advantage of our Career Services opportunities!

At Lighthouse Labs our guiding belief is that over 80% of training will be learned on the job, and the first year of working as a software developer can be seen as paid high-intensity training. Our dedicated Career Services team is here to guide our students into their new roles. They work with all students to identify their career goals, and help them jump from classroom into the real world ASAP to continue honing their skills.
