To ensure learners are prepared with the skills, abilities, and opportunities for success in courses that do not require existing knowledge, Per Scholas requires learners to complete Pre-Work to be eligible for enrollment. This ensures learners with or without previous experience are best prepared on Day 1 of their course. Our instruction team has also pulled together additional Optional Pre-Work for learners to support your success best. This is not required for enrollment with Per Scholas but is highly recommended due to the fast-paced, rigorous nature of our bootcamp-style training.
