FAQ

I’m a beginner in the field - what course should I take?

If you’re aiming to change your career, you should start from the introductory courses, and make your way up to the more advanced ones.

What’s going to happen at the course?

Our curriculum may appear difficult at a first sight, but you’ll see that, with the help of the trainers, you’ll get through it in a heartbeat. Theoretical courses are interactive and will offer you lots of opportunities to ask questions. Practical courses mean you will work on your own laptop in order to apply what you learn.

What language are the trainers going to speak at the courses?

The courses will be held in Romanian, but you should note that most of the terminology is in English, so a basic English knowledge is required

Why is Decode Academy different from other training offers?

Here’s the thing: we’re not trying to make rock stars or ninjas out of you, we’re trying to lead you on your path to understanding this world and becoming a developer. You will be trained by people who actually do this for a living, and they do it really well.

What happens if I can’t make it to a session?

In order to properly finish a course, you’ll need at least 70% attendance. If you can’t make it to a session, it’s ok, but don’t make this a habit. Our trainers will be available by email if you fall behind.

How do I graduate from a course?

At the end of each course you will have to either prepare a project or take a test, depending on each course. But don’t worry, if you pay attention, you’ll pass with flying colors.

What do I have to bring to the course?

Courses bearing the Practical label require you to bring a laptop with you to every session, for your hands-on work. You don’t have to install any particular program, besides the browser. If you are going to need special software, your course trainer will guide you in installing it; we always choose free or open-source.

Will I have to install some (paid) software?

Any needed software will be installed with your trainer. We will choose free software options.

How can I apply?

Choose the course you’d like to take, considering its prerequisites and specifications, and apply by filling out the form on the bottom of the course’s page. If you find yourself in a pickle, or need any kind of assistance, feel free to ask us.

How can I secure my spot in a course?

When you apply, we’ll analyze your course choice to make sure you are a good match and won’t be stuck in a course that won’t help you. After that, you’ll be contacted by a member of our team to confirm your application and take care of the paperwork. You will secure your spot by paying the course within the timeframe we’ll communicate.

Will the courses help me change my career?

This depends on the course and your level of implication. We commit to delivering top-notch education in the field, but we will not guarantee your employment in a certain company, as that hinges on your overall progress and determination.

Does Decode Academy offer career opportunities?

No. For now, we cannot offer specific jobs. But we will do our best to facilitate networking opportunities between you and possible employers.

What jobs will be available for me after the completion of the course?

Depending on the courses you take and your progress, you’ll be able to get a web development internship, junior job, or even higher level jobs (for the more advanced courses we’ll add).
