The web development program at Lighthouse Labs was a truly life changing experience for me. Echoing what others have said here, the staff feel like family and are always available to help you even after you've graduated. I had no previous programming experience but am now totally hooked on the world of coding! I landed a job about one month after graduation at a UX agency with really interesting clients from enterprise down to small startups and not-for-profits. I couldn't be happier. So much hard work went into getting that job, but I couldn't imagine it happening any other way. Thanks, LHL!

Lighthouse Labs has the best curriculum and mentorship of any bootcamp in Canada. The mentors I had were exceptional: Tim, Mikias, Zola and Will were attentive and motivated to see me and my classmates excel and land great jobs as full-stack developers -- which we all did! Truly, it felt like they were available 24/7/
The curriculum is also amazing and includes learning how to learn so that you can continue your education after graduating. Compared to other bootcamps, this is a full-stack experience. Friends at other bootcamps graduated into mostly front-end roles and seemed unprepared to work on backend technologies and frameworks.
Warning though: this is gonna be a lot of work. As CourseCompare's advisor recommended to me when I was considering bootcamps, start with some free online courses to see if you actually like/can do this for hours at a time. In the end, it was so, so worth it.
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 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 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!
How does Career Services at Lighthouse Labs work?
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.
