TechBootcamps.com Announces First Boot Camp for Drupal Developers
TechBootcamps.com is changing the way technology is taught in the classroom. Using a combination of "flipped classrooms" that rely on an extensive library of video tutorials, and "Telepresense," TechBootcamps.com thinks they can create Drupal Web Developers in 8 weeks.
The company stated that 53% of college graduates can’t find a job within 4 months of graduation. They also pointed out that the average cost for a private university is over $121,000 for a 4-year degree. The company thinks that’s a big debt to take on without a job.
Enter an entirely new solution, from TechBootcamps.com.
The company promises that their boot camps will take a person from a beginner to an employable Web Developer, as well as give them the hands-on experience and employer contacts that the students need to get a developer position when they graduate. Through their intense 8-week program, students will learn real world skills and produce a portfolio of websites that they can show to prospective employers.
Through TechBootcamps' “Career Days,” the students will be introduced to many employers, face to face. All of these employers will be looking to fill web developer positions. With starting salaries in the technologies taught averaging 50,000 to 60,000 dollars, the company claims their training program can easily pay for itself – and without having to take on a huge student debt.
The company also stated that if a student take a job with any of the employer-partners that participate in their “Career Days,” the company will reimburse the student all or most of his or her tuition. More information is shown on their "Tuition | Application" page.
The total cost of their 8-week program is $5,900 during their launch – and that includes a MacBook Pro. If the student already has a laptop, they can subtract $1,500 and their tuition will be $4,400.
The company says that they also offer $500 scholarships for many individuals, including veterans of the U.S. Military, and females. That would take tuition costs down to $3,900.
To find out more information, the company suggests going to their website at TechBootcamps.com, or via the telephone at 413-821-6993.
