CSN is offering two programs to help southern Nevadans prepare for careers in the most in-demand local occupation: software development. The new coding bootcamps will be powered by Promineo Tech, an innovative provider of tech education which aims to make coding education more affordable and accessible. The courses will cover Back End and Front End Software Development.
“The Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance called software development the most needed skill for business,” said Ricardo Villalobos, executive director of Division of Workforce & Economic Development at College of Southern Nevada. “These two bootcamps will help southern Nevada residents get the skills they need to become a part of this burgeoning industry.”
Each bootcamp lasts 18 weeks, and classes will be held online. Students will be prepared to pursue entrylevel roles such as software developer, software engineer and java developer. For those who engage in back-end training, courses will cover everything from Java to Web API Design, and more. Students in front-end courses will cover HTML, CSS, Algorithms and web app design, among other things.
Workforce development is a top priority for CSN, particularly as the community looks to recover from the COVID-19 crisis. The bootcamps are part of that mission. They will be easily accessible, cost only $3,595, and they target an area in need of skilled workers.
The bootcamps begin November 11 and are open to the public. A free information session on October 21 will provide more details on the courses and skills students will gain. Residents can learn more at bit.ly/PPDProgramming.
Nationwide, qualified technology workers are in high demand, particularly as the economy shifts toward distance services. Even in previous years, these careers have also outpaced others; the industry enjoys an anticipated 21 percent growth rate over the next ten years.
“The rapid economic shift earlier this year has created tremendous demand among those who want to reskill,” shared Nick Suwyn, founder of Promineo Tech. “We’re excited to bring this opportunity to Nevada and create accessible technology education to ensure that more people can pursue their dreams.”
