Update Regarding COVID-19: Our Approach to Ensure the Safety of Our Students, Staff, and Larger Community

As the COVID-19 epidemic rapidly escalates and affects many parts of our community, we would like to inform you of the precautionary measures we are taking to ensure the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff members.

Over the last week, we successfully transitioned all of our in-person classes to Live Online instruction and temporarily closed our facilities in light of this evolving situation. We provided clear guidance to our current and incoming students to minimize disruption to on-going classes and ensure a smooth transition. 

Out of an abundance of caution, we also instructed all of our faculty and staff members to work remotely while providing students with a seamless learning experience throughout this challenging time. Fortunately, remote instruction is an approach that our team is quite experienced in as we have been offering online bootcamps and courses for the past few years and have done it effectively. 

We are continuing to accept applications and enrollments for our future bootcamps and individual professional development courses. Our admissions team is available to speak with prospective students about their future at our school and career prospects within the data science field.

We will continue to monitor developments and provide information as we learn more from health advisory officials. For now, we will conduct classes remotely until we receive information from the appropriate authorities that indicate that in-person instruction is viable once again. 

We strongly encourage everyone to take preventative steps as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO). Please stay safe and take advantage of the available resources when necessary. 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us directly at info@nycdatascience.com. Thank you.
