Company Details


Bloc teaches online courses in Web Development, Design, and iOS.

At Bloc, we want to take you from zero to web developer in 12 weeks. We do this through an apprenticeship model whereby you pair with an experienced practitioner, where you will get lots of personal attention, pair programming, and industry expertise.

During the apprenticeship you will work through the curriculum checkpoints, meeting with your mentor at LEAST 3 times per week using face-to-face video chat, assignment submission, and an on-demand office hours.

Students emerge from Bloc as entrepreneurs 100% capable of building a product and company.
