Operation Spark, a non-profit tech bootcamp dedicated to changing lives by advancing technology skills for today’s workplace, offers a monthly FREE two-week introduction to computer coding class, with the next class starting October 11.
“Prep is the first phase of Operation Spark’s 6-month workforce program of intensive learning for a high-wage, high-demand job in tech. It gives students the opportunity to try their hand at software programming without a full-time or financial commitment,” said Founder John Fraboni.
The course meets virtually for two consecutive weeks, Monday through Thursday. To register for the Prep Program, interested candidates must participate in a Virtual Information Session prior to enrollment. For times and information or to register, go to https://www.operationspark.org/info-session
Students who pass the Prep Program will receive a Level One Industry-Based Certification (IBC). They can then choose to continue into Operation Spark’s Bootcamp and Immersion programs, where they earn advanced Industry-Based Certifications that may lead to a high-wage career in software development. Financial aid, tuition assistance, and grants are available for students who wish to continue beyond Prep.
For graduates of Immersion, Operation Spark is committed to a 100 percent job placement record and is fully engaged throughout the hiring process.
The minimum tech requirements for participation in the Info Session and Prep program are a laptop, desktop or Chromebook, and a stable internet connection. Operation Spark’s experienced, full-time instructional staff has been teaching coding classes for adults and students across Louisiana since 2014.
