Tech sounds like a compelling industry, but you’re not quite sure where you’d fit in.

Thankfully, RED Academy is offering up sampler courses from Tuesday, June 6, to Thursday, June 8 at its West Broadway location, so you can learn about the technology industry and any areas you could potentially work in.

The courses cost just $5 each to attend and all of the proceeds raised are going to motionball’s Marathon of Sport event on June 10, in support of the Special Olympics Canada Foundation.

So, whether you see yourself as a web developer, in user experience design, or in digital marketing, these courses could help you. Apart from being super informative, they will also save you time and money in the long run as they could save you from investing in a career or degree program that you’re not totally sure you’d like.

This way, you can try it out and decide for yourself. Or, you can simply stop by the open house summer social event on June 1 to have a beer and chat with the experts at RED Academy.

Some of the full and part-time courses offered at RED Academy:

  • Web development
  • App development
  • User experience design
  • User interface design
  • Digital marketing

Not only do you get to build your portfolio and gain real project experience, but you learn from industry professionals – like your teachers. And, this all happens in a cool, community-minded environment where learning flows creatively.

This isn’t just your average education hub either – RED Academy provides students with the skills required for today’s ever-changing workforce. This means you learn how to work successfully and also independently which will help you if you decide to work freelance, or establish your own business as an entrepreneur.

The contemporary academy works with students in their first three months after graduation, helping them get into the workforce quickly. With a 95% placement rate of students gaining employment within three months of completing RED Academy’s full-time programs, you have peace of mind knowing you can find a job soon after you finish.

But before you think that far ahead, why not try sampler courses related to user experience/user interface design, web development, or social media for businesses – all in support of a good cause.
