Commonwealth Coders is a 16-week virtual training course offered through the BC Skills Development Academy. The course prepares students for a career as a Junior Web Developer. This training started as a collaborative effort between South Central and Lake Cumberland workforce boards. The success of the spring 2021 course and the high demand of web developers across the nation led to the expansion to the following workforce areas: Bluegrass, Northern Kentucky, Lincoln Trail and TENCO.
While no previous computer/coding experience is required, algebra skills, internet access, along with a strong dedication to the program curriculum are highly recommended for applicants. After completing the training, individuals are ready to enter the workforce as a Junior Web Developer with most jobs averaging a salary of $60,000 or more in Kentucky. Assistance with job placement is also available.
The training is eligible for Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act funds available through the local workforce boards. This results in many unemployed and underemployed individuals being eligible for funding to pay for the cost of the training and required supplies. The TENCO Workforce Development Board serves residents of the following counties: Bath, Boyd, Bracken, Fleming, Greenup, Lewis, Mason, Montgomery, Robertson and Rowan.
The 16-week training program is full-time, approximately eight hours a day, Monday through Friday.
This is a wonderful opportunity for rural Kentucky communities to become competitive in the world of information technology. The training is set to begin in January 2022. Only 50 spots are available, so check out the tutorials and complete the initial no-obligation interest survey today at commonwealthcoders.com.
