Is a coding bootcamp right for me?
The typical coding bootcamp student is a second career adult. Though this isn't always the case - there are some recent high school grads and the occasional older student, the average age for coding bootcamp student is 31.
- 31 years old
- 7-8 years of work experience
- 75% have at least a bachelor's degree.
- 10% have some graduate education
- most have little or no coding experience
Most bootcamp students have the same goal: quickly learn the skills necessary to land a job immediately.
How do most potential students decide on which program to apply for? The data is pretty straightforward; they typically choose the program that leads to the best job opportunities.
More cost effective education
Get the same amount of technical training as a 4 year bachelor's program, but in a fraction of the time, and at a fraction of the cost. The average computer science degree costs $155,000 and takes more than four years, yet recent CS grads only earn an average of $61,000. Since most bootcamp grads already have a degree and years of work experience, most actually start earning more than a computer science grad immediately.
Break even in 1 year
The typical student earns about $40,000 prior to bootcamp, and takes home about 75% more in their first job after a bootcamp.
For students who participate in Edcelerant's Paid Apprentice program, you'll earn $1000 per week plus benefits during the 6 months of apprenticeship following the classroom program. After that, we provide a tuition scholarship reimbursement, build in an increase in salary for an additional apprenticeship contract extension, or ask that Employer partners hiring apprentices full time pay a minimum salary of $80,000.
open doors to new career opportunities
Edcelerant's Employer Partnership opens doors that otherwise might not have been available to our graduates. Even getting an interview at many large corporations is near impossible. With Edcelerant, you'll get access to our hiring partners from day 1, and every qualified grad is guaranteed an opportunity to shine in the apprenticeship phase of your training.
JOB READY HARD SKILLS THAT LAST FOREVER
The skills you've learned to launch your new career have just increased your earning potential by 300 percent. Compare your $40,000 per year dead end job to a developer with just a few years of experience making around $120,000, and you'll quickly realize that this is a career change you can't afford not to make.
