Section 4: About the program expectations
The Reskilling Program streams are designed for a part-time commitment, requiring approximately 10-14 hours per week of time for learning activities, including online synchronous/asynchronous activities, online postings and discussion groups, assignments and other coursework. In addition to the training partner activities, YWCA Cambridge provides individual and group support intended to enrich your learning experience and to help find additional personal supports if needed.
All programs are delivered online. You will need to have access to a computer system that is capable of running a remote desktop session with webcam, USB plug-in or wireless Bluetooth, and a good internet connection (10+ Mbps download 1.5+ Mbps upload). (For Data Science, preferably with a broadband wired or wireless 3G or 4G/LTE internet connection).
If you have any questions about the technical nature of the program we will be pleased to discuss this further during an informative discussion with the Program Coordinator.
