Our Mission: Close the Tech Talent Gap

Nationwide, the demand for coders far outweighs the supply, and the talent gap is growing wider every day. Through university and employer partners, Edcelerant creates job-ready coders and puts those people to work. We help schools to equip second-career adults with the skills necessary for immediate employment as a software developer, and we facilitate paid apprenticeships for every student that completes our program.

Full Stack Coding Bootcamp & Apprenticeship

Edcelerant's core program is a 4-month, full stack web development certificate - curriculum which we license to colleges and universities to deliver with our guidance. Designed to meet Department of Education and accreditors' standards, our plug and play certificate program is designed with the aim of putting students to work immediately upon completion.  Each language, framework, library and tool was chosen with input from practicing experts in the field, as well as our employer partners, ensuring that graduating students can hit the ground running.  All qualified graduates earn a six-month paid apprenticeship.

Learn and Earn Guarantee

Every qualified graduate is guaranteed a six month paid apprenticeship.

It's that simple. Demonstrate the skills, and we'll take care of the rest.

Before the bootcamp, you couldn't even get your foot in the door. Now, get access to large companies you've always dreamed about working for.  Instantly change your path to a stable, high-paying career.


Big Impact

By providing colleges and universities with accelerated “bootcamp style” curriculum, we enable schools to instantly launch certificate programs without spending huge amounts of capital.  Edcelerant works directly with employers to incorporate the most up to date languages, frameworks, libraries and tools into our curriculum, ensuring that graduates are immediately ready to start as productive employees.  Students gain the same amount of tech skills that a recent grad would learn, but with more practical applications. Most importantly, every qualified graduate is guaranteed a PAID 6-month apprenticeship upon graduation.

TEAM

Edcelerant was founded with a social impact mission: to find a sustainable model to increase the tech talent workforce. We believe we've found that model - a model that creates life-changing career opportunities for future coders, enables colleges and universities to offer modernized software development programs without the need for millions in investment, and allows employers to train new people with specialized skills for instant employment, give back to their communities, and do it all for less than it costs to make the typical tech hire.
