Online, Bootcamp Programs with Live Instruction
DWC offers several types of training options including certificate programs, bootcamps, stand-alone classes, and one-on-one consulting.
As a vocational school, we deliver our programs 100% online with live instruction in a bootcamp-style. A bootcamp-style means that your program is provided at an accelerated pace and more intensive than a traditional university classroom setting. Our class sizes are deliberately small so you keep close interaction with your instructor throughout the program. Students enjoy a balance between the bootcamp pacing and mentored instruction in small cohorts.

These values define who we are and what we believe in.

We are entrusted to deliver real-world skills that are relevant and meaningful to the workforce, increase efficiency, and build intuition.
We offer small class sizes to work with your instructor closely as a mentor and build your portfolio.
The Human Element
We bring the human element to the modern online classroom with hands-on skills programs delivered through 100% live instruction in a bootcamp style.
We believe that we have a responsibility to provide a student-first environment, equally respectful to all, and guided by the highest ethical and professional standards.
We value a welcoming community for students and alumni that is approachable, inclusive and created with the purpose of empowering you to learn, work, and grow.

Flexible Training Locations
Online – Public & private classes are taught by a live instructor in a live, online format. No self-paced videos.
On-site (your location) – We send an instructor, course materials, and equipment to your workplace. Travel expenses may apply.
Training Styles to Fit Your Needs
Group classes – We keep our class sizes to a minimum to maximize student learning. Our public group classes can range anywhere from 1 person to 12 people – depending on the specific class.
Private Instruction – Every DWC class may be offered in a private one-on-one session with an instructor where you will follow the same curriculum as our public group classes. The benefit to this type of training is that the class is set at your own pace and we schedule around your and the instructor’s availability.
One-on-one consulting – Available to businesses and individuals, our hourly consulting sessions can answer questions our regular classes may not cover. Visit our 1-on-1 Consulting page for more information
