When VLA Academy started, 12 years ago, there weren’t many options available online for adults wanting to move forward with their educations, much less if they were not English speakers. At that time, VLA founder Josue was teaching private in-person lessons for CISCO and other IT related certifications. Looking for a way to improve his courses, he decided to take the leap to online classes.
Josue’s vision was to provide a career and life-transforming learning experience to anyone, no matter where they were and the language they spoke. VLA is now an online learning platform for specialized education, that’s grown by 300% just in the first quarter of 2020, where hundreds of learners from both Spanish and English-speaking countries come to learn IT skills to boost their careers.
VLA offers online courses, specializations, certificates, and degree programs, but the biggest takeaway for its students it's the opportunity to land a job according to their skills right away, as VLA has partnered with big IT names to give their students an advantage, even going as far as preparing them for the real job interviews.
Partner companies trust the VLA platform to provide highly qualified talent, as they train every student with in-demand skills to build a competitive workforce, offering high-quality, job-relevant online education to students.
Every course on VLA is taught by top instructors and professionals, using a hands-on method so you can learn something new anytime, anywhere. VLA’s courses give you access to live video lectures, homework exercises, as well as certificates upon completion.
How does it work
- 100% online
- Learn something new in a few weeks
- Earn a certificate and join the workforce
Whether you’re looking to start a new career or change your current one, VLA’s courses help you become job-ready, as well as giving you an advantage, closing the cycle, and helping you get a job interview according to your skills.
VLA also offers enterprise packages for companies looking to train their employees, with custom courses and different tiers to accommodate any budget and number of people.
For English speakers looking to learn Spanish, VLA has a special program when students receive online classes for a couple of months and after that, they spend a whole month in Costa Rica for an immersive experience that gives them real-life knowledge and helps them learn the language in a native environment. It’s also very fun.
