Mined Minds offers a staged approach to transitioning into a career in tech.
Training starts with an intensive 16-week bootcamp covering the fundamentals of software development. The course is hands-on from day one, and you’ll build your understanding and portfolio through a series of projects.
Successful graduates of the bootcamp can then transition to a 16-week pre-apprenticeship, where learning continues whilst you work alongside software consultants on real-life projects. You’ll then be ready to join a full apprenticeship program, or regular employment, with continued support from Mined Minds.
Mined Minds currently partners to offer training in Pittsburgh PA, Waynesburg PA, Clendenin WV, and Beckley WV. No prior coding experience is required, and we have trained people from 16 to 60+.
If you or someone you know is interested in this great opportunity, don’t hesitate to register at http://www.minedminds.org/training. There will be an application process that you will be asked to fill out, as well as a download for your phone to help with your assessment. Please make sure to choose Beckley, WV June 2017 as your Preferred Cohort on the form.
