We know that the best way to create a job-ready workforce is by connecting schools and employers. 

Edcelerant sits in the middle, eliminating the complexities so schools can educate and employers can hire the best talent.

 

Edcelerant’s full-time, 16-week Full Stack Software Development certificate program is designed to teach the interdisciplinary components that are required to become a successful Full Stack software developer.

The certificate program includes a comprehensive understanding of both front-end and back-end web development, and is designed to be taught in sequential order.  Each lesson includes both lecture and lab work which often build on the previous lesson. Technical tool sets were chosen with input from Employer Partners that participate in our optional paid apprentice program.
 
The Full Stack Software Development coursework is designed to be taught in an intensive way to simulate a real-world work environment. Evidence shows that students who learn in a manner that replicates their future work environment will become better developers (and employees), and therefore we do not offer our curriculum online. Classroom work encompasses a full eight hour work day, five days per week. Additional night and weekend labwork and independent study may be necessary for some students.

Though the classroom lessons include a significant amount of supervised lab projects that will eventually be incorporated into the students’ example portfolio, students are expected to design an independent Capstone Project that demonstrates the cumulative knowledge acquired throughout the program.

The program is designed to accompany an optional additional 24 week paid apprentice program. Edcelerant manages all aspects of the apprentice program, including placement, payroll and regulatory reporting.  Our curriculum license includes an option to deliver the apprenticeship for additional credit.
