About the program
The program is mostly online and self-paced with live support, which makes it different from Lynda.com and other online learning providers. If you get stuck, have a question, or need clarification, we will be there for you. You'll spend five weeks on the online program. As part of earning the micro-credential, you can choose to continue with Fast Track: Digital Marketing for two and a half more weeks to complete a team project and present it to professionals in the field, in either Phoenix or Tucson, through our network of marketing experts.
If you feel any hesitation about the in-person project, consider this. You will be interacting with business professionals who are ALSO interested in YOU (your skill-set and your work ethic) and will guarantee you an interview for a position in their company.

Who can apply for this program?
The program is open to currently enrolled students and students who have graduated within the past year.
Will this program get me a job?
You are not guaranteed a job just by completing this program. However, if you complete the project you will be guaranteed face-time and an interview with real employers in Tucson or Phoenix. That will be your opportunity to impress them with your new skills. Since these employers want students (like you) who have these skills, we think your chances are pretty good.
So, this program is completely online?
All of the program videos, assignments, quizes and exams are online. The only component that is not online is the end-of-program project mentioned above. You will need to be available for one day in Tucson or Phoenix.
Is there any support if I need it?
YES! You will be able to speak directly to someone if you run into any issues during the program. Don’t understand a concept? Someone will be there to answer your questions and check your work. This is where our program rises above other online learning sites. We will also be connecting you with our network of employers and marketing professionals during your team project.
The program sounds awesome, but $499 is a lot. Can I get help with the cost?
This program may seem expensive, but it is comparable to tuition and fees for one unit of a summer course, with the added benefit of getting face-time with employers. (A typical 3-credit course will cost you around $1,400 in the summer!) You can apply for a $400 scholarship here.
