NorthWest Arkansas Community College in Bentonville has partnered with Promineo Tech to offer front-end and back-end software development and big data engineering boot camps.
These 18-week boot camps are open for enrollment and will begin Oct. and Nov. 18. The partnership between NWACC and Promineo Tech represents an effort to make coding education more affordable and accessible, according to a press release. Promineo Tech is a technology school and Education-as-a-Service (EaaS) provider based in Arizona.
“Last year’s rapid economic shift has created tremendous demand among those who want to reskill,” said Nick Suwyn, founder of Promineo Tech. “Bringing these bootcamp programs to Arkansas is a great opportunity to enhance the workforce acceleration within the state, specifically in the increasingly in-demand field of technology. We’re excited to work with NorthWest Arkansas Community College to accomplish this.”
Within the last year, a spike in demand for skilled software developers has left 1.4 million jobs open nationally and in Arkansas alone, there are nearly 1,300 software development roles open and in need of skilled tech workers, NWACC officials said.
“NWACC’s partnership with Promineo Tech is in response to area demands for certified entry-level to highly-skilled web developers and digital interface designers, which is projected to have a nineteen percent increase in job growth through 2029 in Arkansas,” said NWACC Director Training & Community Development Evetta Aldridge. “Our coding bootcamps offer community members an avenue to enhance their college degrees with further certification and open up opportunities to enter or advance in the field of software development and experience financial growth.”
The bootcamp-style of learning is designed to focus on the skills and methodologies that are in demand by tech hiring managers. The virtual classroom provides personalized learning and individualized attention by industry professionals so individuals can reach their maximum potential.
Throughout the boot camps, individuals commit to 20 hours a week to master the skills and technologies that are necessary when interviewing for roles such as a Java developer, software engineer, back-end developer, application developer and front-end developer. They focus on the employable skills that make graduates of the program desirable employees within the industry.
Enrollment is currently open for the October and November boot camps. More information is available at www.promineotech.com/nwacccodingbootcamps.
