Czechitas delivers high-quality affordable IT skills development throughout the Czech Republic. We aim to meet the educational needs of individuals and communities; and the changing workforce demands of employers and society. We prepare our participants for professions of the future, where they increase their technical skills thanks to which they can move ahead in their careers or to change their careers altogether.
From one-time classes to long-term training, courses are tailored to meet the full spectrum from beginner to advanced level interests.
Classes are hosted in-person, virtually, or as hybrid learning experiences depending on the topic and audience.
Apart from top-quality educational content, we also concentrate on creating a pleasant and safe environment in the classroom. We create an atmosphere where anyone can pose any type of question. Everything takes place in groups where lecturers and participants make up one team, where they share their knowledge and experiences and support and motivate each other.
All scheduled trainings are hosted primarily in Czech language. We invite you to visit our main site in Czech for more details on our classes or to view our current calendar.
We organise one-day courses, evening long-term courses and three-month requalification programs for women. Thematically, we focus mainly on programming, website development, data analytics and testing.
