As of January 2021, we have updated our policy to make Bootcamps exclusive to TRSM students and alumni. Unfortunately, as a result, you will not be able to register for our events. 

We recommend that you continue to periodically check our website in future semesters to see if any new opportunities arise for the community.

As per the updated Business Career Hub Sign-Up-Show-Up Policy, you must cancel your ticket 24 hours in advance via the confirmation email. All TRSM undergraduate students who sign up for any event hosted by the Business Career Hub and do not show up without cancelling their tickets 24 hours before the event starts, will receive a strike. This policy can be found on the "Sign-Up-Show-Up Policy" tab located at the top of all Bootcamp registration pages. If you have any further questions or concerns, kindly connect with trsmcareers@ryerson.ca.

If both the bootcamp tickets and waitlist spots are not available, please email us at trsmbootcamps@ryerson.ca with the name of the bootcamp and the date you would like to be added to the waitlist for. 

Please let us know by emailing trsmbootcamps@ryerson.ca and indicate which Bootcamp and date you attended.

FAQs: Badge 2.0

We are currently issuing badges for Excel, R, Python, Power BI, Tableau, and Marketing* for completion of Bootcamps from May 2019 onwards.

To receive a Badge for...

Excel, R, Python, Tableau and Power BI: Students are required to attend each Bootcamp in full and successfully complete a Challenge. Students are also required to submit a work submission file for the last level and the challenge to validate participation and engagement of the Bootcamps.

Marketing: Attend the Branding, Graphic/Visual Design, SEO & Analytics and Social Media Marketing Bootcamp and submit the work assigned for each of those Bootcamps.

Python, R, Tableau Badge recipients must retake our updated Level 3 Bootcamp, complete Level 4 and successfully complete a Challenge.

Power of Excel, Power BI recipients must successfully complete a Challenge for 2.0 badge eligibility.

You will have to sign up for a Challenge on your own as you would for any Bootcamp. 

At this time, you are not required to obtain a Badge 2.0 or complete a Challenge for Co-op.

If you are a part of the Fall 2020 Co-op intake and have not yet completed the Power of Excel or Power BI Bootcamps before the Winter 2021 semester, then you will remain eligible to also receive the original badge until April 2021. To qualify for the original badge, you must complete Levels 1-3 of a single Power of Excel Series, and Levels 1-2 of a Power BI Series.  

The first badge required you to attend all levels of the Bootcamp and submit your work at the end of each session. For Badge 2.0, you are required to attend all levels of the Bootcamp and successfully complete a challenge to apply your learning from the Bootcamps. The Badge 2.0 recognizes that you have applied your learning by solving a challenge.

No, you will only need to submit your work for the last level of the Bootcamps and the Challenge.

FAQs: Bootcamp Challenge

You can choose any date that best fits your schedule, you don’t have to complete it by a set date.

Based on your submission, the facilitator will determine whether you need to retake certain levels of the Bootcamp or just the Challenge.

Yes, you are able to but won't be eligible for Badge 2.0 without attending and completing outstanding requirements. We also recommend that you complete all levels of the Bootcamp prior to completing the Challenge as it encompasses material across the Levels.

You will have 5 days to complete the Challenge.
