Lighthouse Labs is a Canadian tech-education company. Lighthouse Labs was created in 2013 by a team of software developers with a passion for code, mentorship, and education. Lighthouse Labs’ mission is to continuously find the best ways to train the next generation of developers and transform the way tech education is delivered. Lighthouse Labs has introduced over 20,000 Canadians to the practice of coding and launched 1,000+ graduates into careers as professional developers.

No formal education or experience in programming is required for being admitted to the Bootcamp! While having some coding knowledge always helps, your background does not matter as much as a genuine interest in code and a raw determination to succeed in this challenging environment.

To ensure that you are set-up for success in the Bootcamp, the application process involves 4 steps:

Apply online: Complete the online application, where you'll introduce yourself and provide an overview of your background. This includes your education, coding experience, plus your super power (you know, the important details that will help us get to know you).

Group interview: You can book your group interview during the application process, otherwise you will be emailed a link to book later. We want to meet you, get to know you better and talk all about the Bootcamp. This is also your opportunity to ask questions and to potentially meet some of your future classmates!

Logic and technical assessments: After the group interview, successful candidates will be sent study materials to help prepare for the logic and technical assessments. You do not need to have prior experience in coding to perform well. These assessments are multiple choice and are to be completed online on your own time within a 2-week period of your group interview. Once these assessments are successfully completed, you will be informed of your acceptance into the course.

Prep modules: The 70 hours you’ll spend on the Prep Modules will introduce the basic technologies you’ll use throughout the Bootcamp. You’re required to complete the Prep Modules in the weeks leading up to your first day of the Bootcamp.

We recommend that you apply 6-10 weeks before the start date, as the more time that you have to complete your Prep Modules and stretch goals, the better! The latest date to apply is one month before the start date of the Bootcamp.

A $500 (CAD) deposit is required upon registration, to secure your spot in the course. The remaining tuition is due in full by the week prior to the start date of your Bootcamp.

You will be able to log into your OpenEd Student Portal to make payments and check your balance.

Accepted payment options include credit card (Visa and Mastercard), certified cheque or money order, and wire transfer (domestic and international – additional charges may apply).

The prep work is required to help you do the groundwork and prepare for success before Day One of the Bootcamp. Each student is required to complete a 70-hr prep module at least one week before beginning the Bootcamp. This course is actually 14 weeks long, as the prep modules are considered to be two weeks of full-time work in addition to the 12 weeks of the Bootcamp. You can, however, jump into the Prep Modules as soon as you are accepted into the course, so we recommend that you use that extra time to ensure that you are able to get through the prep work with plenty of time to spare.

There are four hours of live lectures that must be attended. In total, we recommend that you set aside 25 hours per week to stay on top of the course material.

You will receive a pass/fail grade, based on your ability to demonstrate achievement of the course learning outcomes. While the course is based around mastery and not credentials, we do provide successful Bootcamp graduates with a Record of Completion from OpenEd at the University of Guelph.

90% of job-seeking graduates who complete a Web Development Bootcamp with Lighthouse Labs have been hired after graduating, and 87% within 180 days of graduation!

Yes! You don’t need any experience in coding or computer science to succeed in Web Flex and be connected to employment afterwards. This program will provide you with everything you need to work as a professional web developer.

Web Flex will prepare you to work in a role as a professional developer. Some roles you might occupy include web developer, front-end developer, back-end developer, and full-stack developer.

For those that are returning to their same employer after graduation, interested in working as a freelancer or entrepreneur, or ineligible to work, we offer a Non-Job Seekers option that excludes Career Services. Students must indicate that they want the program that excludes Career Services upon enrolling..
