These 36 hour courses also allow veterans to simultaneously work full time and upskill.

  • While maybe not fully comfortable to dive into a coding bootcamp, part time courses allow veterans to learn a new skill or explore what it means to have a career in data or coding

  • Allows them to explore new career opportunities that they previously did not consider. 

  • They might be able to land a higher paid/ more senior position with these new, in demand skills.

The foundational skills courses are open to veterans and reservists and are designed for absolute beginners. Unlike the bootcamp, there is not an admissions process for these courses.
