Access to Student Software

All VDCI Programs are accredited, allowing us to provide our Program students with free educational software for the duration of their training. Learn more about gaining access to student software below.

Certificate Programs

VDCI provides all Certificate Program students with the necessary software to complete their training. This will include your primary focus and any electives you may choose to complete your program.

Already enrolled? Please get in touch with Student Services for software requests.

Fast-Track Programs

VDCI Fast-Track Program students are eligible to receive free educational software. If you enroll in one of our Fast-Track Programs, you will receive access to the software necessary to complete your training.

Already enrolled? You can find software access instructions in the first lesson of your Fast-Track Program in the VDCI Learning Hub.

Course Bundles and Individual Courses

VDCI is unable to offer free student software to Course Bundle students not enrolled in one of our Accredited Programs. If you are interested in one of our Course Bundles and require software access, we recommend purchasing the necessary software or signing up for a free trial.

Please note that Course Bundle students will require software access for more than 30 days to complete their training. Some individual courses may also take longer to complete than the software free trial period. We recommend exploring our Certificate Programs or Fast-Track Programs, which provide free student software to align with your educational goals.
