Important: If you are considering both Essentials and Advanced training, remember to advise your career adviser of your wishes. Often they will need to know very early on to see whether you may be eligible for funding for the entire IBDE offering.

Importance of Getting Your Application in and Completing the Intake Process

Note: For IBDE Web Essentials you will need to complete the intake process (skills assessment and interview) in order to receive an "Acceptance Letter," confirming your seat. If you are pursuing funding, it is important to move through the acceptance process as quickly as possible so that you have a letter in hand for your career adviser.

The telephone interview takes about 30 minutes to complete and the basic computer skills assessment, usually about an hour. The interview is also a great opportunity to ask questions and receive more detailed information about the program.
