Tech Bootcamps at USU Offer Training for High-Paying Jobs – Cache Valley Daily




A national technical education provider is partnering with Utah State University to offer technical training courses in Utah.

Utah State Online Director Kevin Shanley said New York State Fullstack Academy contacted USU with a proposal for a working agreement that would allow them to reach a specific audience and validate their programs.

“Our role is to coordinate marketing and recruiting with them,” Stanely explained, “to attract students and we will provide continuing education credits to students who complete the programs.”

Shanley said the new program will attract more adult learners looking to retrain or change their career path.

“Registration will start in December and the bootcamps will actually start next spring, like in April or May,” he added. “And the anticipation is that students will be able to complete the program part-time while they work and support their families, and upon graduation they should be able to pursue a full-time career in the tech industry.

Shanley said more than 6,400 net new tech-related jobs are expected in Utah and Fullstack claims a very high placement rate.

“They say they place almost 80% of people who complete the program, 80% of them are placed in high paying tech positions at Fortune 500 companies.”

Shanley said the program is completely online and costs almost $ 12,000, which covers everything including books, tuition and fees.
