The Summer Sampler: Free week of tech classes in Vancouver

Dec 19 2017, 3:58 pm

Whether you’ve just graduated from high school or are thinking of a career change, trying to decide which path to take can be daunting to say the least. Post-secondary education has become somewhat expected amongst many employers, but navigating through the seemingly endless course options is no easy feat. Not only is it a time commitment, but it’s also a financial one. Attending just one year at UBC, or 30 credits, is almost $8,000, and that doesn’t include housing, food or transportation costs.

Investing wisely in education is crucial for students carving their professional career path. And since many jump head first into a program and then realize it’s not for them, having an option to sample the classes beforehand may help prevent any future regrets.


That’s exactly why local tech school, RED Academy is offering The Summer Sampler. From July 6 to 10, budding IT professionals can try a variety of courses that apply directly to the most in-demand tech jobs in Vancouver. Classes include:

  • Introduction to Digital Marketing
  • UX Design
  • HTML & CSS
  • Responsive Web Design

Taught by real industry professionals, attendees can join lunch hour or evening classes completely cost-free.
