What’s the difference between a private mentorship and a course?

At Factory Underground Tech, a private mentorship is a series of one-on-one lessons with an industry professional. Private mentorships are designed to meet students' individual needs with flexible scheduling. Mentorships can be a few weeks long, a few months long, or even beyond. You can browse our mentorship programs here.

A semester course is a 60-hour curriculum-based class, taught in small pods. Each section has seats for up to 5 students. Semesters are 15 weeks long. The fall semester runs from early September to early December. The spring semester runs from late January to late April. All of our classes earn accredited certificates.
