Brookdale Community College Brings Software Development Bootcamps to New Jersey

(LINCROFT, NJ) -- Software development claims its title as one of the most in-demand industries in 2021 and is projected to be the fastest growing occupation in this decade. The Office of Continuing and Professional Studies at Brookdale Community College will offer part-time coding bootcamps to train the adult learner with the skills needed to enter the field of technology.

Coding bootcamps offer an accelerated path to landing jobs in roles such as Java Developer, Software Engineer, Back End Developer, Application Developer, and Front End Developer with competitive base salaries. The curriculum is designed to teach the technologies and methodologies that industry employers look for 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 offers to students who want an accelerated path to a career in IT. The flexibility of the bootcamp model allows students to enter a skilled workforce and secure a well-paying job in less than 6 months,” said Dr. Joan Ali Scocco, Dean of Continuing and Professional Studies. “No matter where you are starting from, at Brookdale, here will get you there.”

Throughout the duration of the high-tech, high-touch program, students dedicate 1.5 hours to live, personally-tailored 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. The small class sizes support personalized learning and individualized attention while fostering the growth of a supportive professional network.

“We don’t teach lessons, we teach students. Our bootcamp programs, and the whole methodology of how we teach, revolve around giving students the individualized experience they need to be successful”, said Nick Suwyn, President of Promineo Tech. “Because of our unique model, we’re able to provide the dedicated support students need to learn software development at a significantly reduced cost compared to other bootcamp out there.”

The pandemic has pushed many people towards the decision of reskilling or upskilling in an effort to find employment or advance in their careers. These coding bootcamps offer a solution that is low risk and more affordable, costing three to four times less than similar programs.

Students will learn in-demand skills and be ready to enter the data-driven workforce within just 18 weeks.

Enrollment for June and July cohorts are currently live. To learn more about attending or offering a coding bootcamp, click here.

Brookdale’s Office of Continuing and Professional Studies has programs in healthcare, information technology, business, teacher education, human resources, non-profit management, interpreting, and more. Their programs are developed with the adult student in mind. They offer the pricing, scheduling, and effective course completion paths that busy adult students demand.
