Courses are taught in-person, at the Schenectady Community College Albany Extension. Each class includes 1-on-1 instructor assistance, self-study, labs, assignments, team projects, and interactions with mentors from area employers. Albany Can Code aims to give students a structure to learn a well-rounded set of skills that are relevant to local employers. The curriculum uses online materials, books, and labs to ensure hands-on practice, in person, with peers and instructors to keep you on track.
