Software development coding boot camp starting in July at New River CTC

[BEAVER, W.Va.] New River Community and Technical College is offering a 16-week software development coding boot camp class starting July 17, 2018. Students will meet at the Raleigh County Campus in Beaver on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. initially and through video conferencing as the class progresses.

Instructor of Computer Science/IT Patricia Hoover attended a coding boot camp class last year and developed New River CTC’s class to meet the demand for developers with a regional employer. This is the third coding boot camp that the college has offered.

“There is a need for this skill set in our region, and we’ve been working with a company that needs trained employees. As students have successfully completed the class at New River CTC, they’ve had the opportunity to interview for a paid apprenticeship,” Hoover explained.

New River CTC’s Workforce Education Division provides community education classes and employable educational opportunities including noncredit courses, workforce development programs and customized training.
