Frequently asked questions

At the heart of it, we’re an open door—everyone’s welcome to hop on board.

Know that IT roles for folks with an MBO2 vocational level or lower are sparse. So, it’s less about the paper you hold and more about your learning grit. For a taste, Pathways’ pace mirrors most IT courses—covering a chunk of ground briskly.

Yet, it’s been a manageable ride for both IT newbies and vets. Bowing out before day three because it’s not your jam or feels too hefty? No sweat, and no fees on you.

Indeed, there is absolutely no risk associated with our program. When you decide to stop before the third day, finding it not up your alley or too complicated, it’s entirely free of charge for you.

Right away! Once your payment hits, you’re all set to kickstart your Pathways adventure.
