Brookdale brings software development bootcamps to New Jersey


Brookdale Community College hosts software development bootcamps in New Jersey
18-week part-time programs aimed at the adult learner wishing to transition into the tech industry

Software development claims its title as one of the most in demand industries in 2021 and is expected to be the fastest growing profession this decade. Brookdale Community College’s Office of Continuing and Career Studies will offer part-time coding boot camps to train the adult learner with the skills needed to enter the technology field.

Coding bootcamps offer a fast track to landing jobs in roles like Java developer, software engineer, back-end developer, application developer, and front-end developer with competitive base salaries. The program is designed to teach the technologies and methodologies industry employers seek when hiring entry-level developers, without the time or financial commitment of a computer science degree.

“One of the best features of this program is the opportunity it provides for students who want to accelerate their careers in IT. The flexibility of the bootcamp model allows students to integrate a skilled workforce and ‘get a well-paying job in less than 6 months,” said Dr. Joan Ali Scocco, Dean of Continuing and Professional Studies. “No matter where you’re starting from, in Brookdale, here will get you there.”

Throughout the high-tech, high-touch program, students spend 1.5 hours in live, personalized micro-lectures and an additional 13-18 hours of self-paced learning each week. Opportunities to enrich the learning experience are offered through weekly one-on-one meetings with mentors, a responsive Slack community, office hours, and career services. Small class sizes promote personalized learning and individualized attention while promoting the growth of a supportive professional network.

“We don’t teach lessons, we teach students. Our bootcamp programs, and our entire teaching methodology, are aimed at giving students the individualized experience they need to succeed,” said Nick Suwyn, President of Promineo Tech. “Thanks to our unique model, we are able to provide the dedicated support students need to learn software development at a significantly reduced cost compared to other bootcamps.”

The pandemic has caused many people to make the decision to retrain or upskill in order to find a job or advance in their career. These coding bootcamps offer a low-risk, more affordable solution, costing three to four times less than similar programs.

Students will gain in-demand skills and be ready to enter the data-driven job market in just 18 weeks.

Registration for the June and July cohorts is currently underway. To learn more about attending or offering a coding bootcamp, visit https://www.promineotech.com/brookdalecodingbootcamps.
