iOS App Development Programme

The IACD provides accredited iOS app development training that is aimed at developing apps for the world’s most innovative and vibrant app ecosystem. The program focuses on software development, startup creation and app design with an emphasis on creativity and collaboration to empower and equip students to develop the skills needed to succeed. 


The Institute aims to attract students from a wide range of backgrounds with the training designed to support not only those with coding or computer science experience but people interested in areas such as design and business.


Our iOS App Development Program follows detailed and proven course plans - developed by professional programmers and based on real-life projects and the latest industry practices. Good programmers and security specialists are made through practice. At the IACD we put the greatest focus on actually writing and testing code and using technology - every day, constantly increasing complexity. We know that this is the only way to learn new skills.

How will you benefit?

On this program you will learn

• How to get started with app development and create your very first iOS app.

• How to utilise the Apple developer tools (Xcode, Instruments, debugger, analyser, and iOS Simulator) to build your app.

• How to implement a range of features using the Swift programming language.

• How to distinguish well-written code from poorly-written code and follow programming best practices in Swift.

• The process and steps required to get your app on the App Store.

How it works?

The training is delivered through a Hybrid VILT (virtual instructor-led training) methodology. Hybrid VILT learning is a blend of self-paced and online training that incorporates virtual laboratories. Most of the theoretical material is covered in selfstudy while practical laboratory environments are recreated using virtual instructor-led training (VILT). It provides delegates who have internet availability with the opportunity to study the SWIFT curriculum and obtain international certification from remote locations. Our unique Hybrid VILT learning is ideal for any delegate wanting to obtain an internationally recognised app development qualification but who is unable to come through to a campus but requires facilitator-led training.
