Carol McMullen

"I think if I’d gone through one of the other bootcamps, I’d still be looking for a job. I haven’t come across another program that’s like FastTrack’D.

You can just tell every person there genuinely wants to help everyone who goes through the program. Even after the course was over, we’ve stayed in constant communication, especially with our classmates."

Yolanda Thompson

"Finding FastTrack'D was a huge blessing, because my original plan was to go back to school, which takes years and doesn't really prepare you to be an enterprise-level developer in this industry. It also doesn't guarantee you'll have a job when you graduate. I don't see how I could've done this another way other than FastTrack'D"

Chris Thomas

"FastTrack’D said it would prepare me for the workforce, and it definitely lived up to the promise. I was hired within a month of graduation at American Express, and I’ve been working as a developer there for three years now."

Peter Zastoupil

"My life has changed dramatically since FastTrack’D, and I think even if you don’t have much experience or preexisting tech abilities, if you have the interest and the drive to do it, you can succeed."

  • What is the location of class?

    Pilgrim Consulting
    4037 Rural Plains Circle, Suite 200 Franklin TN 37064
  • How long does the course run?

    Our curriculum is modular and can vary in length, but our courses typically run 7-9 weeks.

  • What are the days and hours of the class?

    Monday through Friday from 9-5

  • Do I have to relocate to attend class?

    If you live outside the Memphis area, we will provide your lodging for the duration of the class.  You are only responsible for your meals and transportation.

  • Do I have to relocate after I pass the class?

    Relocation is based upon where our customer needs are, so if you live outside the Memphis/Nashville area, relocation will likely be required.

  • Do you provide lodging and meals?

    We will provide lodging at Extended Stay America within a few miles from our office.  You are responsible for your own meals, however there is a kitchen inside the unit that helps with food cost. Lunch will be provided from time to time during class.

  • What are the next steps?

    1. Predictive Index assessment
    2. Technical assessment
    3. Technical interview
    4. Interpersonal Interview
    5. Class Acceptance
  • Do I have to have prior programming knowledge?

    A prior fundamental programming knowledge is best, but certainly not required if you can pass all the onboarding steps.

  • How much does the program cost?

    The program is offered at no cost to you, except your meals and activities expense during the 9 weeks.

  • Am I guaranteed a job after I graduate?

    Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee you a job, but Cook Systems is heavily incentivized to get all graduates placed after graduation, as we have made a large investment in each student’s training and need to recoup those costs so that our program can continue.

  • How long do I have to wait to be placed on my first assignment?

    It depends on several factors, including client need, candidate interview skills, prior experience and resume presentation, as well as others.

  • How long do I have to wait to know if I have been accepted?

    Once you complete all onboarding criteria, we will notify you of your acceptance within 24 hours.

  • If I have additional questions, who do I contact?
