Yes, you can work full time and take part in ADaPT, given that you are able to be on time for workshops. If you participate in the live workshops, please note that our May 2020 cohort will take place during business hours Monday through Friday. Email us at to confirm.

Participants are required to complete a minimum of 85% of all core modules and advanced workshops in order to receive a Certificate of Completion.

For participants completing the workshops online, there is some flexibility around your learning times within a suggested schedule. Please note that online modules must be completed by a communicated deadline to receive a Certificate of Completion.

The placement can start at any time before, during or after the ADaPT training. The start and end dates will be mutually agreed upon by the participant and the employer based on the scope of the project.

ADaPT provides participants with an opportunity to compete for a paid work placement. ADaPT participants are expected to actively participate in the internship-seeking and interview process in order to ensure the best employment match for their skills and interests.
