Frequently Asked Questions
To help answer some of the most commonly asked questions about DWC classes, programs, and bootcamps, please refer to the following FAQ section:
How long is a class at DWC?
At DWC, we offer flexible training options to best fit your schedule. Everyone has busy lives, so we try to offer classes at different times of day and days of the week.
Each class varies in length and you should refer to the specific class page to find out all of the class details including length, cost, location, and more.
What's the difference between a class, certificate program, and bootcamp?
At DWC, we have three classroom training options:
- Class – A stand-alone training session in either a public or private format.
- Certificate Program – A track of stand-alone classes that must be completed in order to earn your certificate credential. A certificate program covers a variety of topics that help you work towards a career goal such as graphic design skills, digital marketing skills, and many more. All of our certificates are state approved, higher education credentials.
- Bootcamp – A bootcamp is a focused, intensive program to upskill in one software or career goal.
To learn more about which program is right for you, contact us today to schedule a training plan meeting.
What's the difference between a live and online class?
Many DWC classes are offered simultaneously in 2 formats: live and streaming online. Live classes are currently held in Fort Collins and downtown Denver.
For both a live and online class, the class materials, instructor, and scheduled dates/times are the exact same. However, an online class can be attended from anywhere using webinar software.
For online training, DWC will ship you a physical textbook and send over any data files necessary.

How do I enroll in a class?
To get started, you must create an account for our online enrollment system. Next, find the course you are interested in and follow the instructions on the course page. If you have any questions on which class is right for you, please contact us at (970) 980-8091.
Do I have to meet the prerequisites to take a class?
We highly recommend that each student begin in the Level 1/Beginner’s classes to build a strong foundation of skills. Some classes have specific pre-requisite requirements and it is the students responsibility to understand and acknowledge that this requirement has been met.
Digital Workshop Center does not provide pre-screening or assessments for students. It is the responsibility of each student to evaluate the prerequisites of each course and ensure they feel qualified to move beyond each level on their own. Please call us at (970) 980-8091 to discuss course options.
What if I have to re-schedule or cancel my class?
If you need to re-schedule or cancel a class, please review our terms and conditions and review the refund table section. Cancellation due to emergency situations will be addressed on a case-by-case basis.
Every student receives a copy of their enrollment agreement including Terms and Conditions at the time of registration. It is the students responsibility to abide by these conditions.
What does a free re-take mean and am I eligible?
A re-take is provided for specific public courses as a way for students to refresh the skills they learned in class. A re-take is non-transferable and no textbook is provided (students need to bring their original textbook). If a student does not attend the originally scheduled class, they are not eligible for a re-take.
Re-take eligibility expires one(1) year after the start date of the initial class.
What's the difference between public and private training?
Classes with a public schedule are posted online and available to anyone to register. If the scheduled date/time of the public class does not work for you, private training is one-on-one option.
All DWC courses are available for private one-on-one training. However, there is an additional fee per student, per course for a private instruction. This fee varies based on the course.
What type of discounts or financial aid are available?
How old do I have to be to take a class at the DWC?
Anyone over the age of 16 is allowed to enroll for any of our classes. Anyone under the age of 16 wishing to attend a course must have their parent or guardian sign a written consent form before the course date. According to DPOS regulations, there are some restrictions on available classes for students under the age of 16.
Digital Workshop Center does not prohibit anyone from attending our courses based on race, gender, color, national origin, or disability.
